Ministry Commissions

Trinity's ministry commissions oversee the program areas at the Cathedral: Arts, Spiritual Formation, Music, Family Ministries, Outreach, Parish Community Life, and Pastoral Care.

Arts Commission

The arts program offers art exhibits and classes for adults and children in a variety of media. Artists and groups of artists show their work and talk about their creative inspirations at Sunday forums. The commission holds receptions with special music and food on the opening dates of the exhibits. The arts festival in May is a highlight of the year. Classes taught by Trinity artists are part of the Wednesday at the Commons program from January to May. The Trinity community shares these creative paths of ministy that enable us to enjoy art in our lives and nurture our spirits.
