Since 2011, Trinity Cathedral has ministered to prisoners and their families through the Angel Tree® program of Prison Fellowship® by providing Christmas presents to children on behalf of an incarcerated parent. By receiving a gift and a loving message from a parent who is in prison, a child knows that he or she is still loved and remembered. This Christmas marked the tenth year of Trinity Cathedral’s participation in the Prison Fellowship® Angel Tree Program. In 2022, we provided gifts for twenty children in support of eight prisoners, bringing our totals since we began this ministry to two-hundred and eight children and one-hundred and six prisoners served. Thanks to the particular generosity and creativity of a volunteer, who dressed for the day as an elf, the children were treated to cookies and milk; and each of the parents/caregivers received a care package. We also handed out gospel materials provided by the national Angel Tree® office along with a list of the Cathedral’s ongoing programs and ministries.
We continue to be thankful to all who volunteer and contribute to the success of this ministry. Through your generosity and compassion, we are supporting the families of prisoners and strengthening relationships between incarcerated parents and their children for, when a child receives a gift from an incarcerated parent, that child knows that he or she is still loved and remembered.Learn more about Angel Tree
