Rev. Todd Miller

Fr. Miller is a Wisconsin native who in high school was drawn to the Episcopal Church both through the beauty of the liturgy and the extraordinary lives of the members of his home parish. After earning a degree in organ performance from St. Olaf College in Minnesota, Fr. Miller was for several years a brother in The Society of St. John the Evangelist, an Episcopal monastic community in Cambridge, MA.

A 2004 graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary, Fr. Miller has served as Trinity Parish’s Rector since 2006. He has two grown children, loves to cook and to do yoga, and is an avid swimmer.

Priest Associate

Fr. James LaMacchia

The Rev. James LaMacchia has served Episcopal parishes in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. He was the Rector of the Auburndale Parish of the Messiah before its merger with Trinity Parish. He was also an educator for 32 years, serving as an English teacher for sixteen years, an Associate Chaplain & Religious Studies teacher for 14 years at Saint Mark’s School in Southborough, and an Instructor of Rhetoric at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He has a strong interest in ecumenical and inter-religious cooperation and dialogue and has spent fifteen summers of study and travel in Israel.

Music Director

Joshua T. Lawton

A native of Worcester and the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts, Joshua T. Lawton joined Trinity Parish as Music Director in August, 2014. While he fooled some of his classmates into thinking he was a Music major while attending Williams College (he graduated with a Bachelor's degree in English, later supplemented with a Master's in Organ Performance with distinction from the Longy School), music was a part of his life from an early age. He is very active as an organ, piano and harpsichord recitalist, chamber musician and composer—that is, when not hiking, reading, or raising his young daughter.


Martha Hadeler

Martha Hadeler and her husband have been members of Trinity Parish since 2019. She has served on the Vestry and as a Warden as well as filled several volunteer roles, such as teaching Sunday School and helping with Altar Guild. Her professional life has been in financial services, most recently as owner of an investment management company specialized in non-investment grade loans. She is a graduate of Brown University and Columbia University Graduate School of Business. She has had a long-standing interest in Asia and is on the board of JB Line, a non-profit company that offers social services to Asians, especially those of Japanese descent.


Karen Hilliard

Karen Hilliard considers Trinity Parish to be her first spiritual home. She was raised at Trinity from infancy, including Baptism and Confirmation. Church life was a central and formative practice growing up in her family in Newton. She returned as a visitor one Sunday in 2007 and felt she was called home, to a new and vibrant community. Karen has served on the Vestry and as Warden and enjoys many other roles such as Verger and Thurifer. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts in Religious Studies and Psychology, she found herself drawn to bodywork therapies, and has enjoyed a long standing practice as a massage therapist in Brookline.
