Cathedral Cookbook is coming along! – If you would like to submit a recipe or two, we can still accept them. We would like the cookbook to be interesting, diverse, and full of great recipes! You can fill out the form printed in the bulletin (there are larger forms on the literature table in the main hallway) or if you’re tech-savvy, you can take a photo of your recipe and E-mail it to Lucy Adams at lkadams55@comcast.net.

Dear Trinity Family – On behalf of the CAST committee, I would like to thank everyone who supported last Sunday’s concert featuring Mr. Richard Alston and his event entitled, “Classically Black”. Mr. Alston was amazing and it was obvious that he is so passionate about his music 🎶 and his story that needs to be told. His enthusiasm was felt by everyone in attendance and the CAST committee would like to say, “A big thanks for your support.” Hopefully going forward, CAST can continue to bring such passionate and dedicated artists and their music to our scared music space. ~ Bobbie Powell, the Cathedral Arts Series of Trinity

The Cathedral is currently offering communion with both Christ’s Body and Blood. You may choose to receive only the host at this time. Should you choose to receive the wine, one vessel will be offered for those who want to sip the wine from the common cup. Another vessel will be offered for those who wish to receive by intinction (the host dipped in the wine.) Please note only the Chalice Administrator will intinct the host. (Diocese of New Jersey revised protocols.)
