Join us every Sunday morning after the 10 am service in Stearns Library for

Newcomer Hour (really 30 minutes or so), which features special events geared toward visitors, newcomers, and new(er) members. Every week is a new topic!


Meet other Trinitarians and find out more about the cathedral, the Episcopal Church, and why we call Trinity our spiritual home. Everyone is welcome, but visitors and newer members are especially encouraged to join us!

Come for good humor and personal stories that you’ll identify with,

and—as always—coffee and better-than-average cookies. 


Look for a Welcome Ministries volunteer if you have questions!

Questions?  Email Bill Bard, Trinity Welcome Ministries.


January-May 2020
