Congregation Or Chadash


On Sunday, June 11, at 1:00pm, The Jewish Congregation Or Chadash, formerly located inWarwick, will relocate and take up residence with us at Trinity in the space vacated by Families First (the historic Happy Hollow space).  Our Wardens and Vestry are excited about this partnering which expresses our commitment to ecumenism and fellowship, while supporting our sisters and brothers in the Jewish faith community. Come Join Bishop Knisely, our Wardens, and the Or Chadash Congregation as we “process the Torah” from The Bank Cafe- Pawtuxet Village, to a new home—TrinityChurch!
