Holy Trinity's Search For A Rector
Holy Trinity's Rectory
2329 12th Street in Beautiful, Downtown Port Neches
As the young Holy Trinity parish grew, the decision needed to be made whether the parish would reimburse clergy for housing expenses or whether it would provide a rectory. In 1964 the decision was made to construct a rectory in a new subdivision on the corner of 12th Street and Canal Street. In November of 1964, The Right Reverend Scott Field Bailey, Bishop Suffragan of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, blessed the new rectory during an open house for the parishioners. Built intentionally to be a home for growing clergy families, the 2,500+ sq. ft. residence claims 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a den and kitchen, a dining room, a living room and a study.
The rectory has an electric countertop stove and an electric oven. It has a refrigerator with icemaker and a dishwasher. The washer/dryer connections are in the garage and has the connections for either an electric or gas dryer. The central heating is gas as is the hot water heater.
The parish provides a lawn mowing service for the yard. The rectory phone, cable and internet are provided by Spectrum.
