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.

Food Pantry Volunteers Needed

With summer quickly approaching, Trinity’s Food Pantry is in great need of volunteers to hand out food to our hungry neighbors each day from 10:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. This is a great opportunity for high school students to earn those service credits or for parents to serve with
their children (aged 7 and older). Serving once a week or once a month would be great! Please sign up at the Information Wall outside Kempton Hall.
