Holy Trinity Church in the Village of Pawling is a vibrant, friendly, faithful and growing parish. We look forward to meeting newcomers, and hope your visit is a pleasant and rewarding one!
Visiting church - or even “church shopping” - can be a daunting task and it takes some courage to visit a new place, especially by yourself. Rest assured that the parishioners at Holy Trinity are friendly and want you to feel welcome and comfortable. So just come on by; we alternate between Masses and Morning Prayer at 10 AM every Sunday. Our 10 am service has music, with a choir from September through June. Sunday school and nursery care are available at 9:45 AM. Children of all ages are, of course, welcome at any service. After the 10 AM service we have a great coffee hour with a chance to meet, talk and catch up with old and new friends.  Additionally, there are times for fellowship and learning throughout the year. These events are sometimes youth/teen oriented but are often intergenerational. Special events and liturgies are always advertised during the announcements at church and through the website calendar.

Our parking lot is located behind the church, and is accessed from Townsend Boulevard, the street which runs down the side of the property. Street parking is also available. The church is handicapped accessible; there are restrooms on the first and second floor, and an electric chair lift to the parish hall on the second floor.

Please make yourself known to us whether you are visiting the area and would like a friendly and stimulating place to worship, or are seeking a parish home. We look forward to meeting you!

Blessings… The Rev. Juan Perez, and the Churchwardens, Vestry and Parishioners of Holy Trinity.

Father Juan Perez

Rev. Juan Francisco PerezThe Harlem Valley Ministry is pleased to welcome the Rev. Juan Francisco Perez, Jr. as its new Priest-in-Charge effective September 1, 2017. The Ministry is made up of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Pawling, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Brewster, and MESA in Dover Plains, which stands for Mision Episcopal Santiago Apostol /St. James’s Episcopal Mission.

Father Juan will bring his vitality, cultural heritage, and passion to his ministry role and plans to foster outreach to all members in the community and offer opportunities to foster hope not just on Sundays but in their daily lives.

Father Juan was born in the South Bronx in New York City, raised Roman Catholic, and received into the Episcopal Church as an adult in 1998. He was ordained to the priesthood in the Dioceses of Michigan in June 2014. He served his Curacy at St. Stephen’s, Troy, MI, and also served as co-founder of La Iglesia Detroit and as a Curate Missioner for Hispanic Ministry in the Diocese of Michigan.

Before discerning a call to ordained ministry, Father Juan was employed as a social worker in various clinical and academic settings in New York and Michigan. He moved from the Bronx to Detroit in 2001, and most recently lived in Berkley, MI, with his husband, Joe Cloutier, and their three standard Schnauzers, Maggie, Lazarus, and Jaeger.

Father Juan earned his Master of Divinity degree from Bexley-Seabury Seminary in Ohio, holds a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor’s degree in Peace Studies from Manhattan College.

Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, located on Coulter Avenue, was founded in Pawling in 1910 as an offshoot of Christ Church in Patterson. It incorporated as a separate parish in 1956.
