Reverend Mikkel Trestrail is the first founding member of an ecclesial community in Trinidad and Tobago to be ordained. Fr Trestrail, along with Brs Kyle Dardaine and Shad Seaton established the Companions of the Transfigured Christ (CTC) August 6, 2000, the Feast of the Transfiguration.

“I really do hope to help the Church understand the lay ecclesial community even more; some of the priests have already,” he said via WhatsApp, September 5 of the gifts he hopes to bring to the “face” of the priesthood.
He explained, “I bring the charism of our Community: companionship, transfiguration and mission, our three watchwords… A journey of walking with people…helping people become their better selves—transfiguration—and a journey of pouring out myself to others—mission”.
