Trinity Episcopal Church

Trinity Ware is a Christian family reaching out to the community and the world to welcome all into relationship with Jesus Christ.

About Trinity Episcopal Church

Trinity Episcopal Church was consecrated in 1901 and has worked to serve God and God’s people for over a century. We have a long history of service to our community and we strive to feed the hungry, minister to the sick, clothe those in need, and share our passion for Christ. We are located in the town of Ware at the corner of Park and Pleasant Streets and are easily accessed by Routes 9 and 32.

Our members come from all walks of life and all across the Pioneer Valley. Our congregation is made up of individuals and families who are passionate about God’s love, our Christian community, and God’s mission. Families with young children are welcome here. We love worshiping alongside the joyful noise of children. Our congregation reflects a diversity of beliefs, passions, and talents. Ages range from newborn to members in their late 80s.

We would love to welcome you, wherever you are in life, to our weekly worship service on Sundays at 10:00am.

Our Parish Leadership

Our leadership is in transition.  The people of the parish continue the work.

Trinity Episcopal Church, Ware MA

The Reverend Mary Rosendale grew up in Colorado as a “cradle” Episcopalian. Mary received a BA in History from Colorado Mesa University in 2012. After graduation, she worked in an orthopedic doctors’ office in the medical billing department. She also spent three months volunteering in an orphanage in Masindi, Uganda. Mary earned her M.Div degree from Virginia Theological Seminary in 2016 and was ordained a priest that year. She moved with her husband to Massachusetts in the summer of 2016, was installed as rector that fall and has been with Trinity since. Mary and her husband, José, have two young children and a dog. They enjoy finding God in nature, music, and church communities.

Mother Mary is available Sunday through Thursday by appointment. She can also be reached via email at or by phone at (413) 967-6100.
