Derek and Rosanne DeKryger (and family), Custodians
Derek and Rosanne spend many evening hours and Saturdays at their 2nd job: keeping Trinity Church looking great! From general cleaning to lawn maintenance and set-up for special events—they keep very busy. They are often joined by their grown daughters who help with the weekly cleaning. It’s been a true family affair for many years and it is a blessing to come into a nice, clean church every Sunday morning!
