Congratulations to Andrea & René John on their daughter’s graduation: Gemelle John Bedu (M.S.Ed Urban Education, University of Pennsylvania.)

Bless their lives from this day on with goodness and success – to use their gifts wisely and in service to others. Empower them to walk into the future with faith, hope, and great love guided by your light so that they may use their talents to, in the words of St. Ignatius Loyola, “Go forth and set the world on fire.”


Pentecost readers needed – Can you read in a language other than English? Next Sunday is Pentecost, when our Lectors (as many as possible!) read our first lesson in both English and alternate languages at the same time. Please contact Patrice in the office if you would like to participate, and the reading will be provided to you.


Greeters provide the first welcoming smile to members and visitors coming to Trinity Cathedral on Sunday morning.
