Sunday Worship Order of Service

The Dean's Commentary

"For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit."

1 Corinthians 12:13

Dear Friends,

What a weekend! Welcome back home! The Cathedral was brimming with so many faces, some familiar and some new, and all joined in worship and fellowship, welcoming the choir, and remembering the solemn occasion of the death of Queen Elizabeth II and also the victims of 9/11.

All pet owners will be responsible for their companions, so please keep them on a leash or harness, and please bring what is needed to clean up any waste that may happen.


Meet Trinity's Steven Tito Students: Lailati and Adam


Lailati has lived at The Baobab Home (which includes the Academy) since she was 4 years old and her mother was unable to care for her. She entered kindergarten in 2015 and is now a 7th grader who will graduate in December.

Recently, she was stricken with malaria and spent five days in the hospital. She has returned, though weaker and thinner and has taken on the responsibility of preparing her own greens to boost her iron.

She loves to help the younger kids in the Home and shines with joy.


Adam is a proud 5th grade student. When he entered kindergarten in 2017, we were asked to pray for him especially because of how frail he seemed. He is now much better and thriving!

He is always on time for school, does his work well and loves being a student. He is also conscientious about helping at home and spends his vacation time supporting his family.

Lailati and Adam are two of the students Trinity supports with scholarships at the K-7 Steven Tito Academy in Tanzania. Each week you will hear about two of the students we sponsor and we invite you to join us October 9 after the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. services to write letters to all of our students.

Among the many ministries Trinity supports is the Steven Tito Academy in Tanzania. A

K-7th grade school located in Bagamoyo near Dar es Salaam and the island of Zanzibar, we have raised money for classrooms and the library, sent books, and continue to support a number of students through scholarships.

Over the next few weeks you will be introduced to the students we support, w culminating in the ability to write them letters on October 9 after the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. services.

Episcopal 101 Classes

Starting September 18 | 9:00 a.m.

Atwood Hall

We will be starting another series of our Episcopal 101 classes, which will explore many of the foundational aspects of what it means to be an Episcopalian, worship in an Episcopal way, and the history of our denomination.

The classes will use Rowan Williams' book Being Christian as a guide. Copies of the book are now available for purchase at the Cathedral for $12, or you may buy your own using this link.

The classes will meet for five weeks between the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. services, and at their conclusion those who wish may be confirmed, received, or reaffirmed by the Bishop in November.

Trinity Quilters Meeting

September 24 | 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Atwood Hall

The Trinity Quilters invite anyone 10 and older to join in their healing ministry. The quilters meet the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from July through October in Atwood Hall. Their next meeting is on September 10th.

No prior quilting experience is necessary, and participants are encouraged to bring a lunch or snack.

Lectio Divina Gathering

September 25 | 12:30 p.m.


All are invited to attend September's gathering of Lectio Divina, an ancient contemplative practice where members gather to reflect and meditate on passages from scripture.

It differs from church traditions and services in that participants strive to interact with the quietness of Spirit, and access their faith practice from within and with fellow participants. 

Gatherings are held on the fourth Sunday of every month in the Auditorium.

Listen 'til the Listening Starts

St. Barnabas Fall Program

October 1 | 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church

Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church is offering a 4-part workshop series, Listening ‘til the Listening Starts. The series is dedicated to equipping people to be a healing, uniting presence in the midst of a polarizing world.

The first session will be about climate change. There is a $25 registration fee, though scholarships are available.

Artists Serving Humanity

September Olney Gallery Exhibit

To start the 2022-2023 exhibition season, the Olney Gallery presents work by current or formerly incarcerated artists.

The exhibit is hosted in partnership with Artists Serving Humanity (ASH), which  represents incarcerated artists sharing the desire to give back to society by creating generous charitable donations through the sale of their art. ASH has grown from the initial six incarcerated artists who asked for a sponsor to now serving over 200 artists imprisoned in 18 different states, in both federal and state prisons. The youngest artist is 18, and the oldest is 81. 

For more information about ASH, contact Meredith Smith at or visit

  • Cheez-Its (24 oz. boxes)
