Trinity Chapel, a small, friendly Episcopal congregation in the historic village of Shirley Center, was founded in 1902, and many years later the congregation is still going strong with its worship and community service.  Four years ago, two couples from the congregation got together for dinner and began talking about the church and how they could become more visible in the community.  "They came up with the idea of hosting community forums which would cover topics of interest and they would find speakers to come and talk about those topics," the Rev.
