Godly Play - Trinity Episcopal Church invites children PK3 to 5th grade to enter into a deeper and more playful relationship with God. The children meet during the "Sunday school hour" from 10:30am to 11:15am. Classes are organized by grade. After class, the children are led by their respective Godly Play mentors to join their families for communion. Sometimes we're a little late.

About Godly Play (not your typical sunday school) - The Godly Play® method is a curriculum of spiritual practice exploring the mystery of God’s presence in our lives and builds upon a Montessori foundation that has been extensively researched and practiced for over 40 years. At its core, Godly Play emphasizes the importance of process, openness, discovery, community, and relationships and models the worship life, stories, symbols, and rituals of our Christian faith. Consistency is key. 

High School Episcopal Youth Community (EYC) meets every Wednesday from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at Molly's House and on the first Sunday of every month for a fun adventure. Email Sarah Bomhoff, lay youth minister, at to receive email updates. Learn more at trinitynola.com/formation/youth.

Student Readers are invited to share their voices with our community by serving as readers during the 10:30am and 6:00pm services. Email if you would like to serve in this way. "Give young people a greater voice. They are the future and they are much wiser than we give them credit for." - Desmond Tutu

Student Acolytes - The Acolyte Ministry is a vital part of our worship, which has its roots in the Old Testament, where the prophet Samuel is seen assisting Eli, the Levite priest. Acolyting invites middle and high school students to be active participants in worship, form new friendships, and grow in leadership, responsibility, and maturity. To join one of our Acolyte Teams, email Acolyte Minister, Becca Wallace at .

Called to Serve


Handwritten Cards of Hope - The time between Easter and Pentecost is called Eastertide. This is a time when people began to meet Jesus in new, unexpected ways. As an extension of the work our students did making Christmas cards for incarcerated youth, we invite all interested parishioners to write notes of hope and compassion during this season of new beginnings. A table will be set up in Bishops Hall every Sunday with supplies.

Backpack Drive for TEEP and Community Children - The Mission Commission is collecting backpacks for children in the community, including our TEEP children! Our goal is to provide 200 backpacks - 120 for TEEP, and 80 to divide between our two community partners, Jesus Project Ministries and St. Roch Community Church. Backpacks can be delivered to the vestibule of the church or Bishops Hall through the end of May. You can also provide funding to purchase a backpack! Make a check out to Trinity and drop it at the school office or in the mail (memo line: Backpack Drive). Questions? Contact Rev. John Pitzer at . Please remember most public schools require either clear or mesh backpacks for elementary school age children and older.
