Holy Trinity Episcopal Church

A nonprofit organization

Who are we?

Holy Trinity Episcopal Church was formed as the result of a merger in 2008 of St. Philips, St. Thomas and Epiphany Episcopal Churches.  The combined history of these three churches dates back to1898 which included a strong presence in the Rondo community of St. Paul and South Minneapolis. Holy Trinity continues the outreach work for which each church was known for in the past. Located in the Hamline-Midway area of St. Paul (1636 Van Buren Avenue), our congregation, is the only predominately African American Episcopal Church in Minnesota. In the Summer 2021, we began the much-needed renovations on the church which was built in 1904.  In Spring, 2022 we completed most of those renovations (see pictures in our photo gallery). The contributions that some of you made to our 2021 fundraiser helped us achieve this goal.  

Why Contribute to ‘Give to the Max’?

In 2017 Holy Trinity started a conversation series to foster meaningful dialog dealing with race, ethnicity, and inclusion. Our goals included fostering greater understanding, education, and advocacy related to these issues. These ‘Community Conversations’ utilized a unique format that brought community members together to learn from subject matter experts and each other. We shared stories, asked questions, and discussed ways to make positive change and foster greater understanding among our neighbors and the community at large. We were joined by several ecumenical partners and dealt with issues such as microaggression, historical trauma, institutional racism, homelessness, and more (see the event flyers posted in our photo gallery of past and upcoming events ).  During the pandemic we took a hiatus. However, with the encouragement of past attendees, Holy Trinity and our partners have rebooted the series. We are asking our friends and supporters for their financial help. Through the ‘Give to the Max’ program you can help us continue these important ‘Conversations ’and other community activities or collaborations.
