Senior Warden

Sean Donadio

Sean has has been a member of Trinity since 2003.  He and his family started at Trinity, finding the parish very welcoming and open to children.  His family prayed about churches they visited and felt God’s calling to the church.  The caring, spirit filled, community and the engagement is Living God’s Mission to love one another as Jesus taught us has kept him involved with Trinity.  Sean's spirituality has been influenced by a trip to Hagia Sophia Church/Mosque in Istanbul. 

Sean's family lives in Middletown, choosing to cross the river to worship with Trinity.  He and his wife, Lori, have three children.  Sean is an architect.  In his spare time, he loves hiking and spending time at the beach (especially in Northern Michigan) and enjoys being an artist and painting.
