trinity lutheran Church
Since 1948, we have wholeheartedly welcomed members of the greater Fort Erie community to join us in song, service, worship and prayer at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Through God’s grace Trinity’s congregation has developed a culture that is not shy embracing the Word of God and sharing the values of friendship and care among its members and to the community at large.
New visitors are always welcome! Come and be a part of our friendly, hope-filled congregation.
I emigrated to this great country of Canada in 1990 from El Salvador in Central America. After a few years of residing in Canada, I felt the call to become a Pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church. After completing my studies at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary I was ordained in 2004.
Over the years as an ordained servant of God, I have served four Lutheran Churches in the Niagara Region. I am presently called to a shared ministry with 3 Lutheran churches including Faith in St Catharines, Trinity in Fort Erie and the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Niagara Falls. I hope that one day when you visit us, I will be able to tell you more about myself and have the opportunity to share my faith with you.
Peace, Pr. Julio Romero

In 1947, the Canada Synod of the then United Lutheran Church in America gave approval for a survey to be conducted in Fort Erie, in the hopes of establishing a Lutheran congregation here. The results of this survey were indeed positive!
The first service of Trinity was held on Sunday October 19, 1947 at the Gilmore Road United Church (before construction of our current building), with Dr. John H. Reble presiding. There were 45 interested people in attendance, as well as 14 choir members from Waterloo College. The Thanks Offering this day was $20.00!
Thus, Trinity’s humble beginnings…As the Church grew, a building fund was established and construction began with ground breaking in April 1952. Our new place of Worship was dedicated Sunday June 14, 1953.
