Weekly Announcements


Dean John has declared October, “Volunteer Appreciation Month”: Today, we will celebrate all volunteers at Mass and fellowship.

It’s That Time of Year Again! – The Trinity Cathedral Food Pantry will be having its annual Turkey Day on November 8th, with the bags of sides and fixin’s distributed on Saturday, November 18th. While we do receive a limited amount of turkeys from the Food Bank, the demand outweighs the amount each year. If you would like to donate a turkey, please do so by Tuesday, November 7th (if necessary, late turkeys can be re-homed after the “official” a17year47gcturkey day.) You can contact Patrice in the Cathedral office at (609) 392-3805 ext. 100 to arrange drop-off. If you would like to contribute non-perishable side dishes (stuffing, boxed potatoes, gravy, canned vegetables, etc.) they can be brought to the Cathedral anytime on weekdays through November 12th (or bring to Sunday Mass.) Financial contributions are always welcome.

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. Proceeds from the Cathedral cookbook will go toward supplying our Food Pantry families with fresh fruits and vegetables – your contribution will assist in helping others eat healthy!

Trinity parishioner John Gummere will be showing his paintings in a solo exhibit at the Trenton Social, October 6 – 31. The Trenton Social is located at 449 South Broad Street, near US1 and Sacred Heart Church. 10% of any sales will benefit Urban Promise Trenton. John’s work is online at be.net/JohnGummere — if you have any questions he can be reached at 215-817-8531.

Join us for Sunday Hospitality! – Enjoy coffee, cold drinks and snacks each week. On the first Sunday of each month, we will have cake to celebrate all of our congregants’ birthdays for that month. If you would like to help out with Hospitality hour, please speak with Larry Spears on Sundays.   

The next Food Pantry distribution date is – Saturday, October 28th (2nd & 4th Saturdays this month) from 9-11:00 am. All food contributions to the Pantry are welcomed, along with monetary donations to purchase additional food from the food bank and local groceries.

Each Thursday, we distribute hot dinners “to go” from 5:00–6:00pm at the Overbrook Avenue entrance as a satellite location for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen.

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.)
