To all our loyal friends, customers, and earth family, we wish to extend our heart felt gratitude for your support, your desire for continued spiritual growth, your sharing the Good News and, last but not least, your hard earned money (when you order great artworks).
The path to achieve my passion of owning and operating a business which serves the Catholic-Christian and Spiritual needs of the world has been a long and rewarding journey. It all started many years ago. I was just out of college and would often dream about making t-shirts with art images of saints. I am not sure why this dream kept reoccurring. All I know is that it seemed like a great idea and I could imagine millions of people walking around with millions of saints on their shirts. And people would see the images of all the saints and people would be nicer to each other and eventually there would be true peace in our world. I said I was a dreamer (But I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will be as one.)
Well, as life sometimes goes, I did not have the experience or finances to start my own Saintly Shirt business so I had to get a job. One job would lead to another job and another job would lead to increased responsibilities and more time and more work and so on. I was a successful businessman working in corporate America but something was missing. My soul was not fulfilled. I would still have the same dream and I would occasionally find myself in a library paging through books of saint images. Raising two children and work, work, work was my priority and I was still not ready to take the leap of faith.
Finally, many years later, I discovered Br. Robert Lentz's icons of saints in a small religious store window. I can still remember the day. It was in the afternoon on a beautiful sunny Colorado day. Inside the store a priest smiled as he passed by and made mention about how spiritually joyful I looked. I did not know what he was talking about or even realized that I looked so happy but I sure was smiling from ear to ear after he left.
The day, the joy, the kindness and comments from a stranger lead me to make the decision right then and there to find and to write Br. Robert and ask if I could make t-shirts with his icon images. I new it was a long shot but it was also possibly my destiny.
After much research and communications and testing and time, in 2000 Br. Robert agreed and we started creating amazingly beautiful, high quality saint images on t-shirts via a sublimation process. We were one of two distributors of Br. Robert’s 80 icons at the time. We are truly blessed that we are now his exclusive distributor of over 175 icons and have the opportunity to work closely with Br. Robert and his art. Trinity Stores has grown to include eleven amazing and spiritually centered artists and over 1,300 religious art images available on over 100 product formats and sizes…and still growing. Yikes!
Our mission is to be the best and most accessible provider of Catholic, Christian and Spiritual art to a world in much need of prayer. A world in need of goodness and kindness, of hope and of peace. A world in need of more Love and less Hate. Artworks that Heal, Images that Connect, Icons that Soothe the Soul.
Our manufacturing and distribution facilities are located in beautiful Colorado (God’s Country). Please visit our website often and be a part of our family, our ministry and our spiritual growth.
PS: Beware of clergy and any strangers who say nice things to you. They just might be Christ in disguise and the next thing you know you'll be working 14 hour days, 7 days a week ..... and loving it :).
John and the Trinity crew.
