Ten years ago, Fr. Todd was called to Trinity to be our rector, and how grateful we all are for that! But change is inevitable, and as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. The vestry has accepted Fr. Todd’s resignation, and we are already working on our next chapter. We have begun working with the diocese to find the right interim rector, and we will be appointing a Search Committee to identify the next rector at Trinity Folsom.
Reflecting on the past ten years, our progress has been remarkable. We were a little church with a big heart, and with Fr. Todd’s leadership and guidance, we gained confidence in becoming who we are called to be. This cute little church in Historic Folsom became the fastest growing church in the diocese, with programs that touch those inside and outside our walls, on Sundays and throughout the week. We have become the inclusive church with the traditional liturgy, the beautiful music, the poignant preaching, the impactful outreach programs, and especially you, the welcoming people within.
Change is never easy. But dealing with change is Trinity Folsom’s specialty. Looking back, our path has been full of twists and turns that have led us to where we are today; together, we walked through that uncertainty with God’s love to guide us, and our adventures together have brought us closer to God and closer to each other, each adventure making this parish and parish community a little bit stronger.
I am so grateful to Fr. Todd for everything he has done and accomplished at Trinity Folsom. We would certainly not be who or where we are without him. I am also grateful that he has prepared us well for this moment: we know who we are, and who we wish to be. And I eagerly anticipate Trinity’s next chapter with you.
I will keep you informed as we progress through this transition. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or any member of the vestry.
Tovi Abello, Sr. Warden
