Tina Lockett to Join Trinity Clergy Staff

I am excited to announce the coming of a new full-time Canon for Pastoral Care. The Rev’d Tina Lockett has served the church in several settings, including as a seminary dean, as assistant rector in large and small Episcopal churches, and as a hospital chaplain in a specialized year-long clinical education program. In July 2007, she was the speaker for the Province IV Episcopal Church Women’s Conference at Kanuga.

I don’t believe I have ever interviewed a clergy candidate about whom I got more exuberant letters of recommendation as I have for Tina. The groundswell of acclamations from her former colleagues cited her abilities as a caring, wise pastor, and her giftedness as an organizer (which will be important for our expanding lay pastoral care ministries). She will begin later this month.

Trinity is home of the St. Helena Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King

The St. Helena Chapter of the Order of the Daughters of the King was re-instituted at Trinity on June 18, 2017 at the 6 pm service in Keenan Chapel. Officers were installed, and three Daughters-At-Large are now members of the Trinity chapter with the original chapter number from 1957. Barbara Kovacs, long-time Trinity parishioner, remembers that some of the members of the original chapter were:  Nancy Boyle, Pride Carson, Jeanie Martin, Sis Smith, Frances Tucker and many more. We would love to know the names of anyone else that was in the original chapter!  Nela Edgar, another long-time member of Trinity, was a Junior Member of this chapter in the late 50’s/early 60’s and she says, ”The Junior Chapter, a group of teenage girls, was a place where we began to explore our faith and to experience the power of prayer”.

Canterbury of Columbia

The college years are what I would describe as a liminal phase of life. Sacred spaces, churches, and holy sites are often referred to as liminal spaces. A liminal space is a thin space, a threshold.  These are spaces of transition, transformation, and encounter with the holy. I believe that the college years can be much like that. We stand at a threshold of experiences in which we are no longer what we were, and yet, we are not quite what we will become.  

Canterbury of Columbia is a ministry in which young adults can walk with one another and the church through fellowship, worship, and service during this phase of life. Canterbury is a community of support and belonging that hopes to foster joy, solace, transformation, and discipleship as we explore what it means to live life in the way of Jesus together.
