Trinity is an urban congregation of 1,500 members who live in neighborhoods all over the greater Portland area. We are a people committed to worshipping God, nurturing Christian community, and proclaiming the Gospel by working for justice and peace in the world. The Cathedral is known in the broader community for superb music, broad educational programming for all ages, and outreach ministries to the city and beyond.
