Race Matters

Social Justice & Racial Reconciliation Working Group


In March of 2022, the Social Justice and Racial Reconciliation Working Group offered a two-part series about Trinity’s impact and response to racial justice and issues in the life of Indianapolis. The series included presentations by John Bridge, parishioner, and Lee Little, historiographer of the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis, followed by group discussion.

Much of the conversation focused on the role of the congregation at pivotal points in city history, particularly during the suburbanization of Indianapolis in the decades following World War II and more recent trends that have affected the neighborhood.

Trinity Episcopal Church has been a presence in the Mapleton-Fall Creek neighborhood for more than a century. Watch the recorded sessions below to hear how Trinity has lived into its baptismal call to promote justice and how we can continue to grow.
