The Rev. Bruce Michaud, Rector
Welcome. That's Trinity under the red steeple as seen from Alpena's boat harbor. And that is Trinity as seen in the winter. Actually, Trinity is a people, but we are spread around three counties and you are likely to find us only when we're gathered -- usually on Sundays. Our building, however, is usually open for your viewing pleasure.
Our building is Victorian Gothic, and dates from 1883. We have just completed capital repairs and improvements that will preserve and enhance its peculiar beauty. Many visitors attest that it is a place where people can worship God in the beauty of holiness. (Cf. Psalm 29:2)
As an Episcopal parish church, Trinity is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. We are part of a tradition that is both catholic and reformed, and that has sometimes been called the via media — the "middle way" between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism.
Located in the heart of town, Trinity has been serving the community since 1864. We are certified as a "National Jubilee Center" for our outreach to those in need. We open our doors and arms to the hungry, the abused, and the addicted. Since we also serve as a periodic venue for performing arts, we think of ourselves as a “village church” true to our Anglican heritage.
We practice “Eucharistic hospitality,” inviting all persons to the Lord’s Table. Please join us there, and then, next door after the Service for refreshment and fellowship. We are delighted that you have visited our website, and would be delighted to meet you in person. You are always welcome either way.
