Each Sunday morning in July from 9:30-10:15, children of all ages are invited to join us for Summer Sunday School. This year’s theme is Caring for Creation. Children will learn about what our faith says about caring for creation, ways to do so in their own lives, and create some practices for our cathedral community to do so.
After the 10:30 Eucharist on Sunday, July 7, Dr. Marty Wheeler Burnett will lead us in a short patriotic hymn sing. All ages welcome! Children and youth who join in the singing will receive a special gift. Wear your red, white, and blue and raise your voice as we celebrate the great national songs included in our hymnal.

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 email@example.com if you are willing to bring soup. Bread and drinks will be provided.
