For three hundred years, Trinity Church has served Lower Manhattan. From launching a charity school that became the New York City public schools in the eighteenth century to running a mission house on Fulton Street in the twentieth, we have sought to work with our neighbors on society's most critical needs. FOUR PATHS A congregation and staff working group has identified four paths for Trinity's commitment to serve: 1. Maintain a visible outreach presence in Lower Manhattan including convening a coalition of faith communities for feeding, sheltering, and providing basic services for homeless persons in our neighborhood. 2. Find new ways to welcome homeless persons into Trinity's common life. 3. Explore how we might extend our commitment to raise a generation of leaders through support for the 15,000 children in City shelters. 4. Advocate alongside other faith communities for John Heuss House, faith-based homeless services, and a fair and compassionate homeless policy. OPEN INVITATION Sign the petition to share your concern about the situation of homeless persons in New York and your interest in becoming part of the next phase of Trinity's commitment to serve.


Trinity Wall Street is an Episcopal church defined by faith, worship, and our work toward making God's kingdom the world's.
