Pastoral  Care

At Trinity, pastoral care is a team ministry of clergy and laity working together.  Our clergy, in addition to their sacramental, preaching, teaching and administrative responsibilities, provide pre-marital counseling, support during relationship challenges, and are available at times of crisis. In partnership with the clergy, ministry teams of trained men and women serve in the various ministries of caring for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

YOU are an important part of this ministry.  Communication is integral to the success of our ability to care for one another.  Please call the church office and let us know if you or someone dear to you is in need of special prayers, a hospital visit, or any other need our ministries support. Please look over the ministry descriptions and volunteering to participate with one of our ministry teams.

Please keep Trinity and all of her ministries in your daily prayers. 

  • Trinity Out and About offers opportunities for you to explore fun and interesting places in and around New Orleans with your Trinity friends!  On Friday October 20th we will be going on Safari to the Global Wildlife Preserve in Folsom. We will leave Trinity at 8:30 am in carpools for a 10 o'clock  tour. We will be taken on wagons into the preserve to see and feed the animals up close!  Feed for the animals will be provided. For details about the animals you can visit, globalwildlife.com.  After our visit, we will go over to the Solomon Episcopal Conference Center to enjoy a lunch and an opportunity to bask in the natural beauty of the grounds for a quiet afternoon.  The Reverend Kit McLean will offer prayer time.  We plan to be back by 3:30 or 4:00 p.m.  PLEASE DO LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT TO COME!  The price for the whole day including lunch is $25.00.  You can pay on the day, but I must have an idea of attendees in order to reserve our space.

  • The Intercessory Prayer Group meets weekly to offer confidential prayers for our community.  This group explores a variety of prayer experiences and meets Wednesdays in the Moore Library at 2:00 p.m. Join us before you pick your child up in carpool. Ministry Leader, Daisy Fant 899-3277.
