Prayer, meditation, and reflection in a sacred space
For hundreds of years, cathedrals have welcomed pilgrims seeking sanctuary, prayer, and communion with God. During this time of pandemic and social upheaval, Trinity remains a house of prayer for people of every faith, and of no faith at all, while following the best scientific advice to protect against the coronavirus.
During this time of social distancing, visitors & parishioners alike are invited come to the cathedral’s sanctuary to pray, meditate, light a votive candle, and, if they wish, to receive the Eucharistic host. In addition, the courtyard & Memorial Garden will be open for those who wish to pray or meditate in a sacred space outdoors.
Reservations are required, and strict safety guidelines will be followed. All those participating in pilgrimage visits will be required to wear a facemask (covering both the mouth & nose), sanitize their hands, and observe physical distancing. Individuals will be invited to assigned pews for individual prayer or meditation; a votive station and an altar with individually-wrapped and consecrated communion wafers will also be available. All surfaces will be scrupulously cleaned between visits.
Be advised that the schedule will shift as Multnomah County's opening guidelines are revised. We appreciate your patience and flexibility! You will receive an email prior to your scheduled session if it must be canceled due to more stringent restrictions being put in place for the county.
