Christmas and Advent Events at Trinity

Advent Lessons & Carols and Advent Festival

The Season of Advent begins on Sunday, December 3. What better way to start your family’s observance of this holy time than with our first Trinity Advent Festival? We are looking forward to a great evening of worship, fellowship, food, wreath-making, and more! Click here to read more about this year's Advent Festival.


Every Thursday during Advent (December 7, 14, and 21) at 8 pm in the Cathedral;  Compline, the final office of the monastic day, is a 30-minute service of a cappella music, sung by candlelight.


Community Carol Sing

The Annual Community Carol Sing is Wednesday, December 13 at 12:30 pm in the Cathedral. Bring your jingle bells (a ring of keys will do just fine) and raise your voice in a spirited half-hour of traditional carols as we look forward to the coming of Christmas.  Lunch will be available in Satterlee Hall at noon and again after the Carol Sing.

The Messiah by George Frideric Handel will take place on Sunday, December 17 at 4 pm. It will be performed by the Choir of Men & Boys and the Choir of Men & Girls. Tickets may be purchased for $12-$45 online here or by calling the Cathedral music office at 771.7300.
