Catechumenate

“Growing in Faith” is the program through which Trinity Cathedral helps adults prepare for Baptism, Confirmation or Reception into the Episcopal Church.  Those who are formally Reaffirming their Faith are also invited to attend to this journey in faith.

Meetings are now on Thursdays at 7 pm, as part of the TNAC program.  Baptism, Confirmation, Reception and Renewal rites take place at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday evening.

Education for Ministry

During the Service of Confirmation, we reaffirm our Baptismal Covenant, and we pray “Renew in these your servants the covenant you made with them at Baptism. Send them forth in the power of the Spirit to perform the service you set before them.” Education for Ministry (EFM) offers an opportunity to explore how to respond to this call to Christian service. Every baptized person is called to ministry. The EfM program provides people from all walks of life with the opportunity to discover his or her ministry. Participants enroll in this four-year program one year at a time.

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. It’s 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.
