Who  We  Are

 We use the Book of Common Prayer in our worship service.  The first Book of Common Prayer in 1549 allowed us to celebrate

 the mass in English.  Even though our prayer book has been revised many times, our current Book of Common Prayer reflects

 a tradition dating back centuries.

We are a part of the Diocese of Southern Ohio, which was officially founded in 1875 and is now
home to more than 25,000 
people in Southern Ohio.  We are part of a larger, global community. 
The Episcopal Church has its roots in the Church of  England, also known as the Anglican
Communion.  There are about 2.4 million Episcopalians in the United States and more

 than 70 million Anglicans worldwide.

Trinity Episcopal Church was founded in Troy, Ohio in 1831 and met on the second floor of the new courthouse until 1835  when the small congregation opened its doors at their new church on the corner of East Franklin and South Walnut.  Trinity thrived and grew.  In 1955 plans began for construction at our present location at 60 South Dorset Street. 

We are liturgical, meaning we pray together

following the Book of Common Prayer.

We are sacramental, meaning we receive the real presence of Jesus

in the form of bread and wine (communion).

We are evangelical, meaning we believe the bible

is God’s word for all people.

Trinity's mission statement is to offer Christian community for the realization of God's presence through worship, relationship, and  
.  Trinity’s parishioners promote active outreach within the church but have historically provided vital leadership and initiative
in programs and mission within Troy and the Miami County region.
