Dear Friends,

In the upcoming weeks we will be coming together to bid farewell to Rev. Anne Marie. It is an Episcopal Church tradition to present an outgoing rector with a financial gift called a “purse”.

The “purse” is a donation that honors the many years of service Rev. Anne Marie has given Trinity during Sunday services, baptisms, weddings, and overall support within our church community. Rev. Anne Marie has watched over our beautiful campus for approximately 9 years, for which we are eternally grateful.

If you would like to participate please make your gift payable to:

Trinity Church, Newport

Please write “Purse” in the memo line and forward your check to:

Brian O’Malley
One Queen Anne Square,
Newport, Rhode Island 02840

You can also send your donation online by clicking here using the ‘General Operating’ fund, and write “Purse” in the comment line.


With gratitude,

Tatiana Schweibenz
Senior Warden


Please Note: Purse donations are not exempt from federal income taxation since the contributions are going directly to the Rector.
