Trinity Time

It is said that when Thomas à Becket (1118–70) was consecrated Archbishop of Canterbury, his first act was to establish a festival in honor of the Holy Trinity on the Sunday following Pentecost. This observance spread from Canterbury throughout the whole of western Christendom.  Trinity Sunday fell on May 22 this year.  The coming Sundays will be numbered “Sundays after Trinity” until the season of Advent begins in the autumn.  If you want to know why the Trinity is important, if you want to know why the Anglican Church follows a “Church Year” with recurring seasons, if you want to know why St. Barnabas uses traditional liturgies (set forms of words and actions) to honor and worship Jesus every Sunday, come and join us!  It is our mission to tell these things to the world, and that includes you.

Trinity Season is the longest season in the church year. This Sunday is the first Sunday After Trinity Sunday and our thoughts are drawn toward the work of the church in this season.
