The Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus and guest soloists will return to Trinity this year to perform a candlelight performance of George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah”. The concert will take place Saturday, December 21st at 7:00 p.m.
Trinity’s sanctuary is one of Maestro Alfred Savia’s favorite venues. “I keep telling people it’s one of the best places anywhere to present ‘The Messiah,'” Savia said. “It’s my very favorite place.”
It’s not as old, but the church’s sanctuary is just about the same size as the Dublin hall where “Messiah” premiered in 1742. According to Savia, the acoustics are great and the open-trussed architecture is beautiful, especially with the ribbons, garlands and lighted candles that decorate the hall each Christmas season.

To remember those of our community who have died while homeless, an annual Evansville Homeless Memorial Service will be held Tuesday, December 15th, 2013 at 5:15 p.m. at Trinity. The public is invited to share in this time of remembrance. Evansville’s first public memorial service was held in 2000 at the prompting of Aurora, whose mission is to prevent and end homelessness in our community. Names have been collected locally dating back to 1990. A total of 70+ names are currently memorialized.
On the fourth Sunday of each month Trinity members assist needy members of the community at the Community Soup Kitchen at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church by helping provide and prepare food, and clean up after meals. Our session from August 25, 2013 is pictured below. To participate in future Saturdays contact Kim Mulfinger at (812) 425-1037.
“If a brother or sister lacks food and one of you says, “go in peace,” and yet do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? Faith if it has no works is dead.”
~ James 2:15-17
