Pastoral Care

Sometimes life becomes difficult. We all experience times of sorrow, grief, great successes and turnarounds, confusion, transition, or illness. During these challenging times members of the Cathedral community can be supportive by holding one another in caring companionship and prayer. A significant element of Pastoral Care at Trinity is the informal way in which clergy and parishioners care for one another by offering listening ears, loving hearts and the willingness simply to be present to one another at times of joy and sorrow.

Educational and support group opportunities are offered around various issues of Pastoral Care along with opportunities to serve.


Cathedral and affiliate clergy are available to listen, to pray and to be with you in difficult times. When you know a loved one is in the hospital, is grieving or needs someone with whom to discuss particular issues, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots.

Of course, the clergy provide guidance in planning funerals and memorial services, as well as the joyous occasions of weddings.
