Cabin Fever!

Are You suffering from Cabin Fever? Well Trinity has the answer for that. Come and join us on February 22 @ 2:00pm. We will have games to play, you could learn a new hobby(bring your knitting or crocheting), jigsaw puzzles(bring your own or try one of ours), discuss your favorite book or enjoy quiet music in the Chapel. There will be something for all ages. Bring a snack to share and wear your colorful spring clothes(we’ll turn the heat up!).

Following this exciting event join us for Worship and the community meal.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Camels and Trinity

Most members of Trinity Episcopal Church in Plattsburgh are familiar with the connection between the carol “We Three Kings” author, John Henry Hopkins Jr., and Trinity.  Reverend Hopkins was born here in 1820 to the Reverend John Henry Hopkins, then Rector of Trinity.  John Henry Hopkins, Jr. also became Rector of Trinity.  We follow popular tradition in portraying three kings riding on camels as they travel to find Jesus.  But, did you know we have another tie to camels?

On the east side of the church is a window dedicated to Carlos A. Waite.  General Waite commanded the troops at the Plattsburgh Barracks during 1843 and 1844.  He married Mary Platt, a granddaughter of Zephaniah Platt for whom the city is named.  In 1861 General Waite was sent to the Texas frontier.  While there, he was in charge of Camp Verde, about sixty miles from San Antonio.  During this time, the Army began to experiment with camels as a means of transport in the hot, dry Southwest.  The experiment was never completed due to the political turmoil in the United States at that time.

We associate camels with Epiphany.  On the Sunday closest to Epiphany, would you consider giving $3.00 in honor of camels toward the window restoration fund?  There will be a box wrapped in camel theme paper in the rear of the church for these donations.  Thank you from the camels.

Recognizing Our Armed Forces

During our November 10th services at 8am and 10am, we will recognize all those who served in our armed forces through the years, especially remembering those who died in combat. The City of Plattsburgh Pipers will provide special music at the 10am service as we celebrate both Veterans Day and Remembrance Day (Canadian).
