Who  We  Are

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 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 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  
    outreach
.  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.
