The Episcopal Youth Event
Every three years The Episcopal Church holds E.Y.E. - the Episcopal Youth Event for teens who are incoming high school sophomores through just graduated seniors. Usually held on a college campus, the event has taken place in different locations across the U.S., and draws youth from all over the Episcopal Church. Six years ago, I was fortunate to take a group to EYE in Minnesota; in 2014 it was held in Philadelphia, and Rev. Megan took a group from this diocese. Teens come from as far away as Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Episcopal Church in Europe.

It's an amazing experience to join almost 2,000 youth, chaperones, and bishops for this event. Our teens couldn't believe they were part of a church that was so big, and so far reaching. Many of the youth in my group had kept quiet about their faith in school; they'd been harassed for belonging to

Gio and our youth from the diocesan Pathways  event in June will be sharing their stories of these summer adventures in September.  While we're waiting to hear their stories, please keep Gio and all those
attending EYE in your prayers this week. Thank you - your support has made this possible!

The Reading Corner...

There's always something new in our library, which you can check out on the SECOND and FOURTH Sundays of the month.     ~~Phyllis Ehlert
Hiding in the Light by Fatima Rifqa Bary is the true and frightening story of a young Muslim girl, who decided at the age of twelve to convert to Christianity. She made news in 2009, when she left home, claiming her father had abused her and threatened to kill her because of her Christian faith. The event sparked debate on the role of women in Islam. The author remains in hiding today.

Writer's Group

Otherwise, we are on for all weeks in the summer, until further notice.

Voices of Faith
Thursdays at 7:00pm in the Assembly Area
July 13 -- Canon David Link presents one of the most important composers of church music in the twentieth century, Herbert Howells (1892 - 1983) was a contemporary of the more famous Vaughan-Williams and Holst. His prodigious output includes evening canticle settings for virtually every important English Cathedral and Collegiate choir, which are cornerstones of the Anglican choral repertoire. His music would certainly figure into the "top ten" of most church choral conductors, including Canon Link, who attributes wanting to be choral conductor to Howells' music!  Join us as we explore the music of this brilliant composer!

July 20 -- Susan Hotchkiss presents " 'Called by the Spirit' - Women of the Protestant Reformation" 

The 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation is being celebrated this year. Come and hear about how the event affected women, some quite well known such as Elizabeth I of England, many more just living out their lives as mothers, wives and witnesses of this earth shaking experience.

Follow this link for the full schedule through August 31.
Thursdays at 7:00pm
in the Conference Room

Next Week and Beyond... 

Cambridge University Choir
at Trinity Cathedral
Tuesday, July 18 at 7:30pm

The Chapel Choir of the Selwyn College, Cambridge, England, will appear in concert at Trinity Cathedral on Tuesday, July 18th at 7:30 pm. We are very excited to host this fine choir in their first west coast tour. The choir is conducted by Sarah MacDonald, who is the first woman to hold the post of Director of Music at an Oxbridge chapel!
Many of you will remember the last Cambridge chapel choir to sing here (Trinity College), which was perhaps the finest choral singing we've experienced in our Cathedral (which is saying something!). We anticipate this concert to be equally thrilling, so mark the date on your calendar, and plan to join us. Included will be music by Thomas Tallis, Michael Praetorius, Anton Bruckner, Gustav Holst, and many others.

The suggested donation is $15 general, and $10 for students & seniors (62+) at the door.

T he Church Office is in need of a Volunteer to staff the Front Desk on Friday afternoons from 1 to 5pm. 
The office is sometimes quiet on Friday afternoons but we still need someone to be in the office to answer the phones when someone calls the Cathedral. If you are available on Friday afternoons and would like to give volunteering in the Church Office a try contact Randie Strike at the church (916-446-2513) or on her cell phone, 916-203-7586.
There are wonderful people who provide training and it doesn't take long to get the hang of it. Please think about joining the Front Desk Volunteer Staff.
Thank you,

Coming to Church

Lou Petrasek
Lou Petrasek is a resident at the Chateau at 2701 Capitol Avenue, just across the street from Trinity.  He would like to come to church at the 9 AM service on Sundays.  He has been a long time member at Trinity and was baptized here in 2011. The Chateau would like Lou to have an escort to and from church on Sunday mornings.  His Apartment is #411.  Since I have been unable to locate anyone to escort Lou back and forth across the street he has been unable to come to church for about 2 months now. If you or a group of you would be able to take on the responsibility of escorting Lou back and forth across the street on Sunday mornings both Lou and I would be so appreciative. I will let him know if you are able to bring Lou to church.  Contact me at anytime by e-mail or on my cell phone, 916-203-7586.

Thank you,
