We are Trinity Parish…Florida’s oldest Episcopal Parish.

God bless us all as we gear up for Joyful Fun in 2021.

Time Capsule

For those of you who have not had the opportunity to be inside the church recently, due to the “virus”,   transformation of the lobby cabinet into our Bi-Centennial “Time Capsule” is progressing.  Glass has replaced the original door panel, which has been saved to become the front of the “Capsule” containment box,   for a more cohesive look with the exterior.   There is already a lock on the cabinet door and the interior is lit.   The interior measurements of the cabinet itself are 12” deep, 28” wide and 71” high.  The containment box will be constructed to fit within these measurements.  A brass plaque will be placed on the front of the containment box, indicating the placement date of December 25, 2021 and an opening date in 2046.

 

 

Attention All Trinity Ministries

We are inviting each Trinity ministry to design and produce a unique and creative representation of their ministry as of 2021 for inclusion in the Bicentennial Time Capsule. The Time Capsule will be opened in 2046. Think about something that would be engaging for you to discover in a Time Capsule from 25 years ago.  All of the submissions must fit in a capsule that measures approximately 60” tall, 24” wide and 10” deep. Note that your plan (description of your submission) must be submitted for approval by March 31, 2021.

Timeline for submissions:

Jan thru Mar. 31, 2021
Ministries submit their suggestions in writing to the committee for review.

April thru June 30, 2021)
Committee review, approval and notification regarding submissions.

July thru October 30, 2021)
Submissions will be physically presented in final form to the committee.

Nov. 21, 2021
Submissions will be displayed at the Thanksgiving Dinner for the congregation to view prior to placement in the Time Capsule.

Dec. 24/25, 2021
