Dean's Forum: Trinity 101

Sunday mornings in Lent, join Dean Loya in Gardner Hall at from 9:30 am for Trinity 101. This class is a general introduction to Christianity as the Episcopal church has received it. It will cover topics such as liturgy & sacraments, the Bible, contemporary issues, and how our cathedral is governed and functions. The class is both the required course for new members preparing for confirmation as well as an important way for long time Episcopalians to learn more about the church.


Lenten Evensong Feb. 10, 4:00 pm

Our Cathedral Choir combines with the choirs of All Saints and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Churches for Evensong on the First Sunday in Lent. The traditional Anglican service of sung evening prayer rotates between the three parishes and will be held at Trinity Cathedral on Sunday, March 10 at 4:00 pm this year. Music, scripture readings, and prayers provide an opportunity for quiet reflection as the season of Lent begins. All are welcome.


Cathedral Lenten Retreat March 22-23

Lent is a unique time in which to rediscover Jesus in our own hearts and within the community. A retreat is an even deeper way to spend some time with Jesus and the community to delve deeper still. Brother James Dowd will lead our parish Lenten retreat this year at Incarnation Monastery (3020 Belvedere Blvd in Omaha) beginning on Friday, March 22nd from 5:30 PM until 8:00 PM and will include dinner. The retreat will resume on Saturday morning, March 23rd at 8:00 AM and will be concluded by 1:30 PM. Saturday will include breakfast and lunch. The retreat is free of charge, but space is limited, so sign up now by contacting Br. James at jdowd@episcopal-ne.org by March 18th.

Compline Sunday, Mar. 24 7:00 pm

Join us for this contemplative, candlelit time of night prayers in the cathedral. Music is offered by our Cathedral Schola Cantorum.


Stations of the Cross

Sunday, Mar. 31 7:00 pm

Gather by candlelight in the darkened cathedral as a solemn procession recalls Jesus’ journey to Calvary. Each stop along the Way of the Cross—a “station”—is marked with a scripture reading, a prayer, and a meditative sung response. The liturgy mystically transports us to the ancient city of Jerusalem, preparing our hearts and minds for Holy Week.
