Prayer & Pie: Teresa of Avila & John of the Cross

Devotion with dessert on the last Wednesday of each month this summer.

In July, we’ll look at the life and works of Teresa of Avila, the 16th century Spanish nun who was a theologian, poet, reformer, and spiritual guide. We focus on Teresa, but also talk a little about her connection with John of the Cross, the Carmelite priest who followed and supported Teresa in spiritual and reformation and renewal. In August, we’ll look more closely at the life and works of John of the Cross.

Saint of 9/11: A Film about the Rev. Mychal Judge, OFM

Saint of 9/11: A Film about the Rev. Mychal Judge, OFM

Saint of 9/11 presents the turbulent, restless, spiritual and remarkable journey of Father Mychal Judge. Compassionate champion of the needy and forgotten, a beloved NYC Fire Department Chaplain, rousing Irish-American balladeer and iconoclast, he wrestled with his own private demons while touching others in powerful and miraculous ways. Mychal Judge knew the pain of loss and suffering. He struggled with alcoholism and was an outspoken advocate of 12-Step Recovery. Father Judge was a gay man who loved his priestly work and loved his vocation as a Franciscan friar. Saint of 9/11 portrays Mychal's life as a spiritual adventure and an honest embrace of life, where alcoholism and sexuality were acknowledged. Inspired by his life, the documentary embraces Mychal's full humanity. The film is narrated by Sir Ian McKellen. A trailer of the film may be seen HERE.

We are grateful to Equality Forum for being able to present this film free of charge.

Dessert follows the film, as this is Holy Trinity’s first of three summer “Prayer & Pie” evenings.

Keeping Faith in a Changing World with Bishop Mary Glasspool

Join us as we visit with Bishop Mary Glasspool, Assistant Bishop in the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the first open lesbian to be consecrated bishop in the Anglican Communion. Bishop Glasspool will talk about her own life, the challenges she has faced, and the sources for the faith and love that sustains her and enables her to lead others.

The event is free and open to the public, but tickets must be reserved HERE.

The Rt. Rev. Mary D. Glasspool serves as Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of New York. Before coming to New York in 2016, she served as Suffragan Bishop of Los Angeles (elected December 2009, consecrated May 2010). She was born on Staten Island, raised in Goshen, NY, where her father, Douglas Murray Glasspool, served as rector of St. James’ Church until his death in 1989, and graduated Bachelor of Arts Magna cum Laude from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA in 1976; earned her Master of Divinity from Episcopal Divinity School, Cambridge, MA in 1981; was ordained a deacon in June 1981 by Bishop Paul Moore, Jr. of New York; and in March 1982 was ordained a priest by Bishop Lyman Ogilby of Pennsylvania.  From 1981 to 1984, she served as assistant to the rector, and later interim priest-in-charge, of St. Paul’s Church, Philadelphia, moving from there to be rector of St. Luke’s and St. Margaret’s Church, Boston, where she remained until 1992. She then moved to the Diocese of Maryland, first as rector of St. Margaret’s Church in Annapolis (1992-2001) and then, until her election in 2009 as suffragan bishop of Los Angeles, as Canon to the Bishops in the diocese.

Holy Trinity Young Adults

In honor of Pride month, we will be reading Psalm 139 through a queer lens. Psalm 139 is one of the most well-known Psalms, but it isn't read often enough in a way that affirms queerness and other marginalized people, so we're aiming to change that.

We will be meeting at the Rectory and start at 7:30 for dinner and discussion. For more information, please email Eunice and Sarah at chtyoungadults@holytrinity-nyc.org"

Jazz Comes to Holy Trinity

13tet: It's All About the [13] Players!
13tet is a group of seasoned New York jazz players, playing charts that let them blow!
Smaller and leaner than the usual big band, 13tet emphasizes the players as soloists and personalities, with arrangements rooted in the big band tradition, but brought into the 21st Century. It's hard-driving jazz that explores interesting textures and meters - as long as it swings!
The current lineup are veterans of the bands of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, James Moody, Christian McBride, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and others, as well as Broadway orchestras and their own groups!

The Lineup: Dave Glasser, (alto sax); Ralph Lalama, (tenor sax); Ryan Anselmi (tenor sax); Andrew Hadro (baritone sax); Sam Hoyt, Dave Smith, Scott Engelbright (trumpets); Ed Neumeister, Matt McDonald, Dale Turk (trombones); Todd Coolman (bass); Alan Simon (piano); Peter Manheim (drums)


Charts are by Chris Gulhaugen, an arranger with a varied history in the business: composer, player, copyist, contractor, roadie, and conservatory administrator.
Tickets are $25 in advance and can be purchased HERE
$30  at the door (cash or check). For further details, please visit the site:

A staged reading of the play by A.R. Gurney

Cultures clash when a surprise guest is announced, threatening to throw convention out the window. Curtis finds that balancing the standards of his late father and the needs of his future family may prove too messy for a black tie affair.
