New Parish Partner: Trinity Church, Ossining, N.Y.

We're flushed with gratitude as we announce our fourth new Proud Parish Partner in under a week!  Joining the ranks is Trinity Church in Ossining, N.Y., part of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

Trinity was founded in 1868 by veterans of the Union Army returning from the Civil War.  It met first in a basement, then was a tenant in a Presbyterian church which stood where the current Trinity structure is today.

Trinity is currently in a period of exploration in partnership with Ossining's other Episcopal parish, St. Paul's-on-the-Hill,  under the interim leadership of The Rev. Cooper Conway.  The parishes are celebrating Holy Week together with events scheduled at both locations, and examining new ways to cooperate as they plan their respective futures.  The schedule has been added to our list of Holy Week events at our Proud Parish Partner congregations in the area.

Thanks to Tam Hernandez for making this happen.
