Stillpoint, a Taizé service with Holy Eucharist,
5:30 p.m., All Saints Chapel, September - May
The Wednesday evening service is called Stillpoint, inspired by a line in a T.S. Eliot poem that reads, “at the still point of the turning world.” This service is intended to be a still point in our often spinning lives and offers a time to recenter our lives with God. Taizé (pronounced teh-ZAY) music is prayer chants of repeated simple phrases, usually from Psalms or other scripture. The repetition is designed to help prayer and meditation.
The service lasts about 30 minutes and is followed by an opportunity for a 12-to-15-minute period of silent contemplative prayer. Worshippers can choose to leave in silence after the Eucharist or stay for contemplative prayer.
Programs, September - May
Holy Trinity offers several opportunities for worship, fellowship, and study on Wednesday nights. Wednesday night activities usually follow a fall and spring semester schedule. Please check the schedule here for current offerings.

Special activities for children and families are offered during Wednesday dinners on a seasonal basis.

Holy Trinity has three choirs for children ages 4 and older. Each choir provides musical instruction with an introduction to liturgical music and the opportunity to perform during services and special events.
Adults are welcome to join the Chancel Choir, which leads the music at the 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Sunday services.
All choirs rehearse on Wednesday evenings. Go here to learn more.
Every Wednesday, prior to the Stillpoint Eucharist, the Rev. Susan Sherard leads a time of prayer and reflection in Worth Parlor from 4–5:15 p.m. The gathering includes silence; shared reflection on a brief spiritual text provided that day; and the sharing of challenges, blessings and intentions. Anyone may participate, and weekly attendance is not required.
