Annual Halloween Celebration at Trinity

Only 4 more weeks until Trunk or Treat... our annual event of the Halloween season. And WHY do we have Trunk or Treat (TOT) each year? Well, first of all, it’s in recognition of religious roots of the celebrating of "All Hallow’s Eve", the night before All Saint’s Day. And it also allows the children of our neighborhood an opportunity to have a safe place to wear their costumes and have fun while celebrating this custom.
