Entering the Season: Advent

On the First Sunday of Advent we begin a series called Entering the Season which will be offered at the beginning of Advent, Lent, and other seasons as a way for all generations at Trinity to deeply engage with the church’s seasons. These events are intended to provide you and your family with meaningful and practical ways to experience, learn about, and pray during these seasons.

After the 10:30 am Eucharist on December 2, we will share a meal and learn about the Season of Advent by building Jesse Trees. The Jesse Tree is a practice of adorning a tree with ornaments that represent the people, prophesies, and events leading up to Jesus’ birth. At this event, we will be making Jesse Trees for you to take home as you and your household engage Advent.

Everyone who plans to a trend is invited to bring a pot of soup to share for lunch. Please contact Sue Wilkins at swilkins@trinityepiscopal.org if you are willing to bring soup. Bread and drinks will be provided.

We hope you’ll save the date for the next Entering the Season as we prepare for Lent on March 3.

Election Day Vigil

Trinity Cathedral will offer an opportunity for prayer and silent mediation on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6 

The time we will spend together will be completely non-partisan. There will be no discussion of candidates, campaigns, or issues. We will simply offer our prayers and engage in meditation. 

The vigil was developed as a way of offering a sanctuary of peace in the midst of a tense time, and helping us all to offer our lives, our leaders, and our nation into God’s care.

The specific schedule for November 6th is as follows:
8:00 AM Morning Prayer
11:45 Organ Prelude
12:00 Noon Holy Eucharist
5:30 PM Evening Prayer
7:45 PM Compline

At least one person will be at prayer throughout the time the polls are open in Nebraska (Central Time Zone). Please contact Brother James Dowd at jdowd@episcopal-ne.org to sign up for specific time.
