Support for Loved Ones with Substance Use Disorders during the Pandemic
Many people have family and friends with Substance Use Disorders (SUD). If you do, please contact the Trinity Recovery and Support Ministry (TRSM) for education, resource information, and spiritual support. Send an email to TRSM’s confidential mailbox at  recovery@trinitysc.org . A Trinity member who has completed over 60 hours of training to become a Family Recovery Coach will get in touch with you by phone. Available coaches include Richard Breibart, Norah Grimball, Claudia Guignard, Keren Riegel, Kay Roman and Betsy Wolff ( please click here to email ). All conversations are confidential.

SUD increases the likelihood of getting COVID-19, and in some cases can make the virus worse. The pandemic increases the stress and dangers of addiction, limits access to critical helping programs, and increases the threat of relapse. It is more important than ever to understand how you can help your loved ones with SUD challenges.

Parish Announcements

  • Choral Compline: Our Choral Compline offering continues this evening at 8 pm. It will be livestreamed on our website (trinitysc.org/live) as well as Trinity's Facebook page. After the streaming, it will be available here to view anytime.
  • Pickle Pantry Contributions: The Trinity Bazaar Pickle Pantry is in need of contributions of canned goods. Summer canners, please consider donating extra jars of pickles, relishes, and jams to support the Bazaar! If you have a donation or are in need of canning supplies, please contact Anna Rose (annacartin@gmail.com) or Amelia Walker (ameliawaring@gmail.com) to arrange for pick up of canned goods or a drop-off of supplies.
  • Harvest Hope: The need for food in our community is greater than ever. On pick-up days at Harvest Hope, the line of cars queued in hopes of receiving food can sometimes stretch for a mile down Shop Road. Although donations can't be collected at the Cathedral during this time, you can still support this important cause by making a financial contribution to Harvest Hope, or by dropping off food donations at one of our collection sites. Trinity members have offered to serve as collection sites in lieu of the Cathedral during this time, and will take the food dropped off at their homes to Harvest Hope for you. To make a contribution, click here. To learn more or find a collection site near you, click here.
  • Daily Office: Trinity's Daily Office services are available every weekday on Facebook. Morning Prayer is available at 7 am, and Evening Prayer or Compline is available at 8 pm, Monday through Friday. After airing, these services are stored here on our site to view anytime.
From the Search Committee
The Search Committee met on July 28 via Zoom and had lengthy discussions about the ever-narrowing list of candidates. Last week’s work included an interview and it went great, not only with the candidate but with the Committee's process and questions as well. The Committee will meet again in two weeks, and hopes to have several additional candidates to review at that time.

The Committee continues to be grateful for your prayers, support and patience during the search. If you have any questions, please contact Search Committee Chair John Moorman ( click here to email ).
During the closure of the Cathedral, ensuring your offering makes it to Trinity is more important than ever. There are many ways to make your offering, and they are all secure and easy. Here are the options:
  • Text to Give: Our Text to Give program allows you to make your offering via text messaging from your phone. Text the keyword trinitysc (followed by a space) and then a dollar amount to 73256. To learn more about this secure giving option, click here.
  • On our website: Navigate to trinitysc.org/give/ways-to-give and click option 2 (also found here). You can also set up a recurring bank draft via this page on our site.
  • By mail: Checks can be mailed to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 1100 Sumter Street, 29201. The campus is closed but regular mail service continues.
If you need assistance with your pledge or making an offering, please contact Ryan Headley (803.461.7302).
