Welcome to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral

As an Episcopal Cathedral, Trinity is heir to a spiritual, intellectual, and moral tradition dating to Elizabethan England, when our worship was set to the rich and subtle cadences of the Book of Common Prayer. Sanctified means changed by the Holy Spirit. We are changed by what we hold to be the truth about ourselves, the world, and God—or rather, we are changed as that truth sinks in.

For all of us, this is a work in progress. Through all of our activities at Trinity, that progress is our aim.

It provides a rubric for current and future strategic decisions at the parish which include but aren't limited to: missional strategies, budget allocation, building usage, and program evaluation.  These are the criteria:

Trinity is looking for a Dean and Rector who has the following

Characteristics We Seek

Spiritual

Has a relationship with God that inspires others and helps connect people to God’s word.

Inclusive

Strives to connect with every member of the congregation in such a way that each of us may feel valued and encouraged to participate fully in the life and works of the church. We hope that our new Dean will continue to broaden the scope of Trinity’s community outreach to build relationships with people in our neighborhood and city- particularly those who are marginalized and/or underrepresented- to cultivate fellowship and to invite them to worship, study and grow with us in the love of Christ.

Innovative

Uses the unique and ample human, material and spiritual resources our congregants bring to our church in a way that encourages the growth of a satisfying and sustainable community.

Scholarly

Trinity enjoys a tradition of intellectually engaging (even challenging) preaching and Christian education. That history revolves around thoughtful consideration of the meaning of the Gospels, encourages questions, dialogue and cordial debate, and invites disciplined study of the tenets, history and beauty of our faith and practice.

Discerning

We are a large church that includes many different voices. We have grand ambitions and obvious challenges. Our new Dean and Rector will need a robust repertoire of administrative skills to effectively manage Trinity’s staff and clergy, to facilitate decision making with respect to the stewardship of our financial resources, and to serve as a pastoral voice for and in our congregation.
