The mission of Trinity Lutheran Church is “in grateful response to God’s grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit through word and sacrament, the mission of Trinity Lutheran Church is to vigorously share the love of Christ by word and deed within our church, school, community, and the world.” Founded in 1867, Trinity is the “mother church” of LCMS congregations in Rochester. Trinity has been committed to Christian Education virtually since its inception, having started Trinity Lutheran School in 1875. Trinity has continued to make Trinity Lutheran School/Rochester Central Lutheran School a major component of its ministry for 135 years. In addition, being a downtown church, Trinity seeks to serve Mayo Clinic staff and clients with spiritual and physical support. A wide variety of worship formats and times are available at Trinity, and visitors are always welcome.
