“In him you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness,
out of death into life”

Trinity Episcopal Church!
Trinity Episcopal Church is an Episcopal parish in Apalachicola, Florida and one of sixty-two congregations in the Episcopal Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast.
Charted in 1836, Trinity is Apalachicola's historic "first church." Services have been held here for over 165 years. It is with great joy that we thank God for his blessings and for the beauty of this place.
Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, and both our worship
and our mission are in Christ’s name. In Jesus, we find that the nature
of God is love, and through baptism, we share in his victory over sin
Book of Common Prayer states that the mission of the church is "to
restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ."
BCP Catechism p. 855
This is our mission at Trinity.

Grant, O merciful God, that your Church, being gathered together in unity by your Holy Spirit, may show forth your power among all peoples, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Jesus healing an infirm woman is one of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels (Luke 13:10-17).
According to the Gospel, Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on Sabbath, and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her:"Woman, you are set free from your infirmity."
Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.
