Meet our Staff
The mission and work of the parish is carried out by all of its members, clergy and lay alike. A few key individuals oversee parts of our community's life: our wonderful staff! Meet them here, and then come meet them around the parish!
Organist and Choir Director Marianne Chaudoir
Marianne Chaudoir became organist and choir director at Trinity in 1984 when she moved to Oshkosh. Originally from New Jersey, she was raised in a family of church musicians and began playing for services when she was in Middle School. She holds degrees in piano from Hope College and the University of Maryland. She is also a Colleague of the American Guild of Organists (CAGO) and is the Sub-dean of the local chapter. When she is not at a keyboard, Marianne enjoys gardening and being with her grandchildren.
Trinity’s music ministry is open to all. The Adult Choir rehearses on Sunday mornings at 9 am. We start our season with a Saturday brunch and sing for the 10 am Eucharist from Labor Day through Trinity Sunday. There are also opportunities for instrumentalists to become involved. Come and join us as we make a joyful noise!
Sexton Peter Chmelik
Peter Chmelik is Trinity's sexton, which is an old English church work for a custodian, someone who ensures that Trinity's beautiful buildings stay clean, safe, and beautiful. Peter is our newest staff member, having joined us just a few months ago.
Peter was born in Ripon and raised in Green Lake. He grew up with a wide range of loves: fishing, running around in the woods, playing all sports, skateboarding, music and art. After high school, Peter went to UW River Falls for a horticulture degree with an art minor. While there, he became heavily involved with the ancient art of glassblowing. He lived in River Falls for nearly a decade, but recently moved back to the Fox Valley to be close to home.
In addition to his work at Trinity and another church in town, Peter hangs out with old and new friends, and spend his spare time doing fine-point rock balancing, carpentry, and fishing.
