Meet Our Vestry

 Jan Schuck, Warden

I have been a member of Trinity Church for 43 years and have been very active.  I have served on the Vestry all but one of those years and have held the following positions; Clerk (27 years), Senior Warden (5 years), Junior Warden (5 years) and am currently a co-warden.  In addition to my work on the Vestry I became a Church School Teacher in 1978 and Director in 1980.  I am still in this position.  It’s impossible to list all that I am involved in at the Church but it is plenty.


Margie Grose, Warden

I’ve been a member of Trinity Episcopal Church for approximately 12 years. I am on the Altar Guild and have served on the Vestry, off and on, for 7 years. I am a Eucharistic visitor bringing communion to the home bound. I am a newly elected warden of the Church.


Steve Smith, Treasurer

I grew up and attended church school and served as an acolyte at Trinity throughout my childhood. I have held several positions including Treasurer, Trustee and have been a member of the Finance Committee.


Debbie Engstrom

I began attending in 2004, after the birth of the first of my 2 sons, and started on Vestry in 2007.  I chair both the Evangelism Committee and the Altar Guild and am a member of the Trustees. As an active member of this parish, I am looking forward to the future as we search for a new rector to help us grow in our faith and spirituality during these distressing times.


Betty Sobieski

Retired Pre-school Director/Teacher. Married to Bill for 43 years, mom to 3 children and grandmother to 6 awesome grand kids.  Blessed to have been a member of the Trinity Church since I was a little girl. Presently I am a Eucharistic Minister / Visitor to home-bound and the Prayer Shawl co-ordinator. Also, I have been on the Vestry for multiple terms.  I am also on the Property Committee and a Transition Team member.


Harry Yost

I have been a member of Trinity Church for nearly 60 years.  I have served on Vestry as Junior Warden as well as a member of the Trustees and Property Committee.  I was a co-founding member of the Seymour / Oxford Ecumenical Food Bank and helped move the food bank into the basement of Trinity during 1982.  During that time I served as Treasurer.


Anne Barton

I recently joined Trinity Church after having attended over many years. I have been married 58 years, have three children, 9 grandchildren and was a local banker. I was invited to join the Vestry and the Altar Guild and feel like I have always belonged here.


Jon Festa

I was baptized at Trinity. I started coming regularly in the mid nineties, then my job took me away and I returned last fall. It’s a place that I’ve always felt at home because of the people here. I’m proud to be a part of the vestry and look forward to helping Trinity in any way that I can.


Mark Fitzpatrick

I have been a member for 5 years. My poems and plays have been published in journals, anthologies, and catalogues. I have taught in Brazil, Somaliland, Haiti, and Honduras.
