Trinity's Young Choristers

One Sunday afternoon this past May, I was among the many in the cathedral to attend a special service of Choral Evensong at which graduating choristers were honored and several young boys and girls were inducted into the boys choir and the girls choir.  The remarks that Jared Johnson made to and about these young people resonated deeply with me and, I’m sure, with many others in the congregation.  Most of this article is made up of quotes taken from that address.

How Do We Welcome?

It isn’t easy to define Trinity. We’re a multi-generational parish of families spanning centuries; a house of worship for all; a prominent downtown presence; and, since 1977, cathedral church of the Diocese of Upper South Carolina. Trinity’s magnificent architecture and cemetery attract history buffs and visitors, while Cathedral concerts and special services draw members and the wider community. As the bishop’s seat, or cathedra, Trinity serves as the symbol and center of diocesan ministry, facilitating diocesan and community events.

For many of us, Trinity is our beloved community of faith. But a larger question is this—how do we, as both cathedral and parish, convey the inclusive welcome of Christ to all?  Below are two stories of those who came to Trinity as newcomers, and soon came to embody that Christ-like hospitality.

Trinity Jubilee Cookbook Re-print

The original Jubilee Cookbook, created in 1998 for the Bazaar's 50th anniversary, captured years of favorite, historic Trinity recipes. It sold out long ago and is tucked away on the shelves of earlier generations. But, we're bringing it back! The Trinity Bazaar is making a 2nd printing for our 70th anniversary. It's not a fancy cookbook. Don't expect lots of glossy pictures. What you will find is a treasure trove, printed in classic form. Think biscuits, tomato pie, congealed fruit salad, green bean casserole, and coffee cake. There are modern takes as well. You will recognize a few dishes from Trinity's kitchen! Spiral binding makes it easy to use in the kitchen. Place your pre-orders now at and plan to pick your cookbook(s) up at the Bazaar or at the Welcome Desk in the weeks after. We also ship.

Last Call for Trinity Forward!

The finish line for our Trinity Forward capital campaign is near! We have taken longer than hoped for, but our goal of $3.9 million is in sight, and the repairs and renovation of the Trinity Center--the largest part of the campaign--are even now being scheduled.

We are excited and grateful that we have raised $3.1 million in pledges and gifts from members of the parish and other friends of the Cathedral. With assistance from our Trinity Foundation, we now stand just $313,000 short of our goal!

Please pray for the successful end of the campaign, and if you feel led to make a commitment (or to increasing a commitment you have already made), many will be grateful.

We will be publishing a list of those who have given or pledged toward the end of the month to publicly say thanks. 

To communicate your intention, you can call or email Ryan Headley at or 771-7300, ext. 226. For that matter, you can contact any of our campaign chairs or clergy in a hallway.
