Trinity Cathedral

Visit Trinity Cathedral in Trenton for any service and you'll find one of the most diverse congregations in central New Jersey. We welcome everyone: singles and families, black and white, gay and straight, native born and newly arrived, young and old. Our differences enrich the life of our community and our common faith unites us. We welcome you to learn more by visiting Trinity Cathedral on the web. (Link opens in new browser window.)

So much has happened at the cathedral in the past few years with the strong support and guidance of Bishop George Councell. The cathedral underwent a vigorous spiritual renewal under former Dean Diane Nancekivell. This paved the way for the arrival in early 2007 of the new dean, the Very Reverend René Rory John and his family — a source of excitement for the entire congregation.

Arms of Trinity Cathedral, Diocese of New JerseyThe cathedral has also seen the emergence of a lively African diaspora community within the congregation, along with new explorations of faith and worship, music and arts, and a renewed commitment to supporting Trenton-area children and local youth.

What has not changed is the cathedral's electric sense of community and its ability to generate joy in worship, work, and play. The cathedral continues to offer an early morning Rite 1 service and a family-oriented service every Sunday, along with other worship opportunities.

In addition to being a lively, faith-infused community, Trinity Cathedral has three distinct but related roles:

First, it is the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of New Jersey. In this role, the cathedral provides hospitality and regular opportunities for worship, learning, and fellowship for all members of the Anglican Communion in the diocese. More than 30 diocesan events are held at the cathedral annually. The Altar Guild Shop provides participants in these events a delightful range of spiritual books and artifacts, religious articles and gifts.

Second, the cathedral is a parish church serving members of a diverse worshipping community seeking spiritual development and doing good works, while faithfully stewarding the resources God has granted it.

Third, the cathedral is a resource to the community. It sponsors or hosts school and after-school programs for Trenton-area children, hosts the Cathedral Arts Series at Trinity (CAST), provides Lay Eucharistic Ministries to the residents of Mercer County Geriatric Cent er, operates a biweekly Food Pantry, provides community health screening and education services, and hosts many other community services.
