Over the course of 150 years, Trinity Episcopal Church has become a fixture in the Milford community and on Congress St. in particular. But few may know that the church had very humble beginnings, holding its first service on the third floor of Irving Hall, located on the corner of Main and Exchange Streets. The first and second floors of the building house a Chinese restaurant and several professional businesses but the third story no longer exists.

The Church has plans to mark several occasions that span over 12 months, celebrating numerous milestones along the way.

150th Anniversary

Over the course of 150 years, Trinity Episcopal Church has become a fixture in the Milford community and on Congress St. in particular. But few may know that the church had very humble beginnings, holding its first service on the third floor of Irving Hall, located on the corner of Main and Exchange Streets. The first and second floors of the building house a Chinese restaurant and several professional businesses but the third story no longer exists.

The Church has plans to mark several occasions that span over 12 months, celebrating numerous milestones along the way.

The celebration kicks-off Friday, May 17 at 7 p.m. with a service of evensong that will closely replicate the type of service held in 1863. The service will begin at the corner of Main and Exchange Streets, the site of the first service in 1863, and process to Trinity's current, since 1867, location. The Trinity choir will be joined by members of its covenant parish, St. Mary of the Assumption, a relationship that began in 1972 and has continued over these last 40 years. The entire community is invited to attend.

"This is an important milestone, not only for Trinity Church, but for the greater Milford community. One hundred and fifty years of worship, support and service to our neighbors," said Fr. Mac Murray, rector of Trinity church. "We look forward to our next 150 years!"

The weekend festivities also include a dinner dance and silent auction on Saturday, May 18. On Sunday, the Rt. Rev. Douglas Fisher, newly elected bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts will celebrate at the 10 a.m. service, which will include adult baptisms, confirmations, receptions and reaffirmations of baptismal vows.
