Welcome

Holy Trinity Church in the Village of Pawling is a vibrant, friendly, faithful and growing parish. We look forward to meeting newcomers, and hope your visit is a pleasant and rewarding one!
 
Visiting church - or even “church shopping” - can be a daunting task and it takes some courage to visit a new place, especially by yourself. Rest assured that the parishioners at Holy Trinity are friendly and want you to feel welcome and comfortable. So just come on by; we alternate between Masses and Morning Prayer at 10 AM every Sunday. Our 10 am service has music, with a choir from September through June. Sunday school and nursery care are available at 9:45 AM. Children of all ages are, of course, welcome at any service. After the 10 AM service we have a great coffee hour with a chance to meet, talk and catch up with old and new friends.  Additionally, there are times for fellowship and learning throughout the year. These events are sometimes youth/teen oriented but are often intergenerational. Special events and liturgies are always advertised during the announcements at church and through the website calendar.

Our parking lot is located behind the church, and is accessed from Townsend Boulevard, the street which runs down the side of the property. Street parking is also available. The church is handicapped accessible; there are restrooms on the first and second floor, and an electric chair lift to the parish hall on the second floor.

Please make yourself known to us whether you are visiting the area and would like a friendly and stimulating place to worship, or are seeking a parish home. We look forward to meeting you!

Blessings… The Rev. José Martinez, and the Churchwardens, Vestry and Parishioners of Holy Trinity.

The Rev. José Martinez and the Harlem Valley Ministry

Father Jose MartinezThe Episcopal Diocese of New York has launched the Harlem Valley Ministry, an area pastorate that is a collaboration of two Episcopal churches and a mission in Putnam and Dutchess counties.

The three parishes are St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Brewster, Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Pawling, and La MESA in Dover Plains. MESA stands for Mision Episcopal Santiago Apostol / St. James’s Episcopal Mission.

Having ministered to La MESA for a number of years, the Rev. Jose Martinez is joining the Harlem Valley Ministry to serve as Priest-in-Charge and will lead services at all three churches. He will celebrate Holy Eucharist on alternate Sunday mornings at St. Andrew’s and Holy Trinity, and hold services at La MESA on Sunday evenings. He will be available to each parish for pastoral care.

The goal of the Harlem Valley Ministry is to bring together two small parishes and a mission in the Episcopal Diocese of New York to better serve the diverse needs of the people in the area, said the Rev. Canon Deborah Tammearu, Canon for Transitional Ministry for the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Similar shared pastorates have been created in other dioceses, she noted; she led a shared pastorate in Dutchess County in the 1980s and 1990s.
