What to Expect at Worship

Upon entering the Cathedral, you will be greeted by an usher who will hand you a program to assist you with everything you need to fully participate in our worship service.  Please know that everyone is welcome to receive Holy Communion at Trinity Cathedral.  Let an usher know if you need to be served Communion in your seat.  During the time of Holy Communion, there are people in the East Transept available to pray with any who have special needs.  There is Nursery Care for the 9 am and 11:15am  services and a Children’s Chapel program offered after the Gospel reading.  There are ongoing classes at 10:15 for Adults and Sunday School for children through high school.  The Newcomers’ Group is a great way to learn more about the Episcopal Church and Trinity Cathedral.  The Welcome Center in the Great Hall is a great place to have questions answered about life and programs at the Cathedral.
