Easter 2 Term
(Wednesdays, May 2-23)
Wednesdays, January 3-May 23, 7:00 p.m. Led by Canon Julia McCray-Goldsmith
Join fellow Trinitarians and seekers for the richest of fare. Catechesis is an introduction to our life together at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, a congregation committed to practicing uncommon warmth in our welcome, holy compassion in our service, intellectual curiosity in our teaching, and deep beauty in our worship. In Catechesis, long-timers and newcomers alike are invited to share the bread of our own faith journeys as we learn together about Christianity within the Episcopal tradition.
An ancient practice of spiritual exploration and formation in community, Catechesis dates back to the earliest followers of Jesus. At Trinity, Catechesis is offered as a twenty-week immersion in scripture, history, worship and service designed to reflect the rhythms of our Eucharistic worship, and equip us to share God’s hospitality with each other and the world.Catechesis is also a context in which to learn more about the community of faith that is Trinity Cathedral. It is an opportunity to meet congregational leaders, ask questions, explore ministry opportunities and make friendships that will last a lifetime. Whether you are wondering, hungering, or wanting more, there’s a place for you at the table of Trinity Catechesis. Click HERE to register.

Elements of Soul: Devotion
Wednesdays, May 2-23, 7:00 p.m. Led by Canon Matthew Lawrence
Our worship is grounded in devotional prayer; the Eucharist is nothing but a devotional practice from beginning to end. Yet we rarely talk about devotional prayer: where it comes from, whether it makes any sense, how it relates to us. In this class, we will explore the devotional dimension of our liturgy, and deepen our connection to one of the highest of spiritual practices: devotional prayer. Click HERE to register.
Christ in Me: Using the Enneagram as a Framework for Discovery
Wednesdays, May 2-23, 7:00 p.m. Led by Katie Skurja
In this course, students will discover the ways we draw on the different personality aspects of Christ as seen in the various types of the Enneagram. We will explore which ones are the most prominent in our daily lives and which ones are most hidden, looking at the positive and negative aspects of each. In doing so, we will open greater access to all of who Christ is within. Click HERE to register.
