Twenty Trinity students, along with College Chaplain Allison Read, Hillel Director Lisa Kassow and Muslim Chaplain Adeel Zeb, travelled to the Republic of  Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean on an interfaith/community service trip during Winter Break, 2013. They encountered a diverse breadth of religious traditions, met with individual leaders of faith communities, and participated in and observed many services and ceremonies. They were fortunate to share a Shabbat dinner with Hans Stecher, a Holocaust refugee who arrived in Trinidad in 1938 and leads the very small Jewish community that remains in Trinidad. The group also attended the Muslim Friday prayer on the day of weekly congregational prayer and reflection. The final days of the trip were spent painting the first floor of a senior residential facility, the St. Vincent de Paul Home for the Aged. This was truly the best of experiential learning, and all involved were grateful to have participated in this very special journey.
 
Milla Cozart Riggio,  James J. Goodwin Professor of English and Faculty Director of the Trinity-in-Trinidad study abroad program has been working and sometimes living in Trinidad and Tobago since 1991.  She has edited or co-edited four books on the culture and carnival of Trinidad, three of which are on display here: a pictorial history of The Renegades Steel Orchestra; Carnival: Culture in Action — the Trinidad Experience; and In Trinidad, a volume of Pablo Delano's photographs.
 
Pablo Delano, Professor of Photography and Co-Director of the Trinity-in-Trinidad program spent ten years traveling with Professor Riggio to Trinidad in preparation of In Trinidad, a beautifully published volume of black and white photographs highlighting the diversity of religions, landscape and urban settings, and people in Trinidad and Tobago. 
 
The Trinity-in-Trinidad program operates each semester and offers Trinity and non-Trinity students a highly rigorous, immersive academic experience in the Caribbean, including direct enrollment for all disciplines at the prestigious University of the West Indies, and a study tour to Costa Rica, organized and directed by History Department Chair and Trinity-in-Trinidad Co-Director, Professor Dario Euraque, for a comparative view of this dynamic and multi-faceted region.  For more information, please contact the Trinity Office of Information, oip@trincoll.edu, 66 Vernon Street, 860-297-2005.
