Trinity

Welcome to

Trinity Episcopal Cathedral!

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. Trinity is also home to the Trinity Bookstore. Since the pioneer days of the Oregon Trail, Trinity has been among the largest Episcopal congregations in the Pacific Northwest.

As a tangible expression of Jesus’ openness to all, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral welcomes all persons regardless of ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic circumstance, or religious background to our welcoming community and Eucharistic table. We welcome all who seek God and invite you into our efforts to be a strong moral voice in our city, the diocese, and the larger world around us.
