The Search for Trinity’s New Dean Begins

By | , ,

A Message from Trinity’s Wardens

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

These last two months have been incredibly full since we learned that Dean Lind would retire at the end of January. The time to say good-bye arrived last Sunday. We came together as a community to worship and have blessed time with her one last time. It was joyful and poignant as we wished Tracey, “Godspeed!” in her retirement.

And now we move on. We are in transition — a meantime of opportunity and discovery while moving toward change. Today — February 1 — is the first day of Trinity’s search for its new dean.
