Meet our staff . . .

  • The Rev. Susan Nelson-Colaneri, Pastor

    Weather permitting, Pastor Susan can be found outside most Sunday mornings, smiling and greeting worshipers as they arrive. If the weather is inclement, you can be sure she's right inside the front door waiting for your arrival.

    A second career pastor, Susan administered a private physical therapy practice for 18 years and then was Director of Parish Education at a large congregation in NJ for 6 years while she attended seminary. She has a B.S. in Music Education from NYU where she met her husband, opera conductor Joseph Colaneri; she received her Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. Pastor Susan has a passionate interest in parish education for all ages, liturgy and music, and the arts in shaping and nurturing faith and spiritual growth.

  • Dwight Weaver, Parish Musician

    We welcome back Dwight Weaver to Holy Trinity as Parish Musician. Formerly, Dwight served as our parish musician from 2015 to 2018 while he completed graduate studies at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ. Currently Dwight is the Choral Director of West Milford Township High School and the Cantor at Gustavos Adolphus Lutheran Church in Manhattan. Due to compatible worship schedules, Dwight is able to serve both Holy Trinity and GALC. A blessing indeed!

Meet our council . . .

Church Council members are elected by the congregation at our annual congregation meeting. Council members may serve two consecutive terms (usually three years each). These are the people who are charged with facilitating various ministries, casting a vision for mission along with our pastor, and guiding and leading the stewardship of our gifts--time, talent and treasure.

Among our council members we have a wealth of experience, knowledge and a "go to it" attitude. Oh, and we also have fun at Council Meetings!

Our Council:

Gail Gugliotti, President

Karen Lindberg, Vice President

Sharon Ramseier, Secretary

David Mammone, Treasurer

Karen Niestempski, Financial Secretary
