Our Rector:

The Reverend Michael J. McKinnon (a.k.a., Fr. Michael) is a native of New England.  He returned to this area in October 2004 to serve as Rector of the Church of the Holy Trinity, Marlborough, MA.  Fr. Michael was ordained a Deacon on July 9, 1995 and a Priest on December 4, 1996 by The Right Reverend Donald F. Harvey, then Bishop of Eastern Newfoundland & Labrador and now Bishop Moderator/Diocesan Bishop of the Anglican Network in Canada (ANiC) and a Member of the Council of Bishops in the Province of the Anglican Church in North America.  Fr. McKinnon earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religion and History from Central Connecticut State University in 1991, a Diploma of Anglican Studies from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale (CT) in 1994, a Master of Divinity Degree from Yale University in 1994 and a Master of Sacred Theology Degree from Nashotah House Seminary (WI) in 1997.  Before coming to Massachusetts, he served in the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland & Labrador and the Diocese of

Quincy, Illinois.

Fr. Michael & Christine married in 2002.  They have two beautiful little girls, Sarah and Rebecca.  Fr. Michael and his family reside in Marlborough, MA .

On November 1, 2007, the church family of The Church of the Holy Trinity, Marlborough, MA affiliated with the Anglican Mission in America and a new church was born:  Holy Trinity Anglican Church.  In October 2009, we transferred to the Anglican Network in Canada, with  Bishop Donald Harvey serving as our Bishop. Fr. Michael continues to serve as the Priest and Pastor of this church.

Fr. Michael is a priest with the Anglican Network in Canada, a Diocese within the Anglican Church in North America and also serves as Chaplain for the New England Chaplaincy of Forward in Faith, North America.  He describes himself as an evangelical Catholic who is fully committed to “Classical Anglicanism” or “The Anglican Way”.

Our Deacon:

Deacon Andrew Carlson has been with Holy Trinity for almost three years as he has been preparing or Holy Orders. A long-time resident of Shrewsbury, MA, Andrew graduated from Trinity College and Yale Divinity School, and has been working as a member of the laity for twenty years prior to answering a call to the ordained ministry. He has a wife (Karen) and three children (James, Rachel and Stephen), and has a life-long love of singing, dogs and Cape Cod.

Deacon Andrew will, God willing, be ordained a priest sometime in 2010 and, among his other responsibilities at Holy Trinity, will be given primary care of our Mission in the Five College Area, St. Michael & All Angels.  He hopes to grow this new congregation to the point where they become self sufficient and are themselves able to plant churches.
