Following the example of Jesus, we work to right the injustices and relieve the suffering that afflict so many of God’s beloved ones in our neighborhood, our city, and our world.
Downtown Episcopal Outreach (DEO)
Every Wednesday, volunteers from the cathedral and nearby Episcopal churches prepare a delicious lunch that's open to the public, free of charge. It's our small way of offering good food and fellowship to our neighbors, especially those who don't always have access to food or shelter.
Join us on Wednesdays, 12:00-1:30 pm for lunch (enter through the red door on Capitol Avenue). Contact Kathleen Mumgaard at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on donations to purchase food or volunteering as an individual or a group.
The Friends of Tamar is a community of survivors of sexual and domestic violence, and the volunteers who have helped them start a new life. Through faith and friendship, they work to transform darkness and despair into sunlight and hope.
To contact Friends of Tamar or to learn more about this community and their ministries, including news on the Suitcase Project, Hannah's Place, and a new Magdalene Community, visit their website, www.thefriendsoftamar.org.
Fricke Food Pantry
The Dean Fricke Memorial Episcopal Food Pantry serves others in the name of the Lord by providing food to families and individuals in need. Located in Trinity Cathedral, the pantry is supported by seven area Episcopal churches. They collect food donations, purchase food, and distribute it to local families and individuals, as well as provide monetary support to local agencies working to eradicate hunger.
The pantry accepts donations of nonperishable food and checks made payable to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Visit the pantry's Facebook page to learn more, or contact Bill Roberts at email@example.com about ways to volunteer.
Yates Community Center Partnership
Trinity provides support to the Yates Community Center, which serves the educational needs of Omaha's refugee and migrant populations. Members have volunteered in the English and sewing classrooms, as well as donating clothing and educational materials to the center.
Trinity also provides scholarships to refugees pursuing higher education, finding that even a small amount makes a huge difference in the lives of refugee families. Donations to the scholarship fund are always welcome in the form of checks to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, with Yates Scholarships in the memo.
To learn more about Yates and opportunities to be involved, contact Gail Krenzer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
