Fellowship Groups

Newcomer’s Group

New to Trinity or a long time member?  It does not matter.  Newcomers is for you! Newcomers meet almost every Sunday morning in Classroom C (off of the Great Hall to the South or left) and you are welcome to join the group at any time.  We try to start the session at 10:15 AM, however, we never start before the 9 AM service is over and we always end before the 11:15 AM service begins. The sessions are directed to those new to Trinity Cathedral but everyone is invited to join the sessions. Those of us who attend regularly almost always learn something we didn’t know before.  And we also get to meet the Newcomers. Whenever you have time during the 10 O’clock hour on Sunday morning you will find us in Classroom C.


The Newcomers Ministry Team includes all of the ministers at Trinity Cathedral including the clergy, office staff and Vestry (Board of Directors).  Individuals who are working with Newcomers and attend many of the Newcomer Group Sessions include Jerry Pare, Bill Chisum, Jodi Barkley, Francie Milazzo, Roger Cain, Shireen Miles and many others who are called to be with the Newcomers from time to time.

Please come join us as we get to know each other better. We are all on a journey and we would like to share our walk with those new to Trinity Cathedral. We, at Trinity Cathedral, believe our journey is easier and more fun if we try this adventure together.

Sunday Spiritual Journey Group

We are a group of adults gathering weekly to grow in our faith through sharing our prayer requests, reading spiritual books, watching faith-based DVD series and having thought-filled discussions on our journeys as Christians.  Formerly known as “30s-40s and Beyond,” we are married, single, divorced, partnered, with children, without children, retired, etc. We meet weekly on Sundays, during the Education Hour between services from 10:15-11:10am ( this allows those of us with children to have our own time together while our children are in Sunday School). Once a month or so we have social gatherings such as a game night at someone’s house, snow trips, movie nights, Second Saturday outings in midtown and an annual Advent party.  If someone has an idea for getting together, we advertise it and come.  Anyone is welcome at any time! Most Sunday discussions allow for folks to come and go within a series. We have a core group, with a fluctuating attendance of those who come when they can. For more information or to get on our weekly email list: contact – Amy Dierlam @ dnarock@pacbell. net

Men’s Group

The primary gathering of the men’s group is a breakfast at Trinity Cathedral at 9:00 am on the second Saturday of each month. The men’s group is also involved in supporting church events through cooking, working on projects around the facility and hosting fundraisers.

Writing Group

Trinity Cathedral has a small, but active group of thoughtful people who like to explore the stream of consciousness opportunity of writing whatever comes to mind in a quiet, safe environment. What we write may be read aloud if we choose to do so, confidentially and without critique. We are not a creative writing class. No obvious talent or credentials are required. Anyone can write and everyone is welcome. And all will be appreciated and edified by their participation.  Come check us out. We meet Thursdays in the conference room above the church offices 3:00-4:30 pm. Its never too late or too early to start this adventure in telling your story. Any questions can be directed to June Gillam at email gorillagirlink@gmail.com or Bruce Roy at barinsac@comcast.net. Come write with us.

Hiking Guild

Daughters of the King

The Order of the Daughters of the King is an order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the historic episcopate but not in communion with it.  Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.  The Order was founded in 1885 by Margaret J. Franklin at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in New York City (now the Church of the Resurrection).  Our Anglican tradition includes episcopal oversight, recognizes that Holy Scripture contains all things necessary for salvation, and acknowledges the gift of the Holy Spirit in Baptism, the real presence of our Lord in the Holy Eucharist and worship according to the Book of Common Prayer.


Members undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating the Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service.  By reaffirmation of the promises made at Baptism and confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service, and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.

The Daughters of the King at Trinity Cathedral has been an order for approximately 12 years.  Our charter hangs in the narthex above our prayer box.  We celebrate our birthday in October every year.  We are involved in prayers and we hold and pray for those requests for a month.  Our Daughters are involved in Altar Guild, Greeting, Family Promise, Eucharistic Visits, reading the lessons, serving the Eucharist on Sundays and Ushering.

Presently we are also working with “Women’s Empowerment” to help women recently off the street to set up households.  Another request of the clergy is making stuffed hearts which are prayed over and given to people suffering from emotional or physical problems.

When We Meet:  We meet once a month on the third Saturday in the conference room at Trinity Cathedral from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M.

For more information, contact our President Sally Smith at (916) 930-9564 or via email: sally1369@comcast.net.

T.R.E.E. Trinity Respecting Earth and Environment

TREE/Trinity Respecting Earth and Environment provide leadership in raising the consciousness of members of Trinity Cathedral regarding the need to care for God’s creation and the earth’s environment.

We work towards protecting the earth’s ecosystems, safeguarding public health, and ensuring sustainability in harvesting the earth’s resources.

TREE members meet on the second Monday of each month at a member’s home, at 6.30 pm.  We hold an Earth Day Fair in April and a Christmas Fair on a Sunday in Lent.

In the spring and fall, we host a Second Harvest table at Coffee Hour for parishioners to bring their excess garden produce to church to share, and we work at promoting recycling in all aspects of the church’s life.  In the past, we have shown films, held classes, and given talks.  Join us in this lively and important ministry.
