  • Margaret Marcotte

    Margaret Marcotte has been an active member of Christ Church Trumbull for over 18 years and currently serves as Treasurer and Representative to its Anti-Racism Task Force. Her service to the church and community includes tenures as Treasurer - during the construction of the church’s main addition already a decade ago - and Vestry Member for Outreach and Christian Formation. She also occasionally serves as Lay Assistant on the altar. Having spent her youth as an active church chorister, she enjoys sacred music and traditional services but is slowly coming around to - and enjoying! - more contemporary practices. Her two daughters, Marala and Eliane, have been baptized and participate actively in the Episcopal church, yet have learned the sanctity in honoring others’ religions because of the bi-cultural environment in which they’ve been raised. Their commitment to end racial equality has spurred them to elevate their voices and actions through the church in calling for change.
