Dean Tracey Lind Chosen for Cleveland Scene’s 2016 People Issue

Dean Tracey Lind was named by the Cleveland Scene’s 2016 People Issue as one of their 29 Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 10.19.02 AMClevelanders “working every day to make the city better, to drive it forward, to contribute to its successes and rectify its shortcomings.” The article includes observations about Trinity’s uniquely outward-facing mission, noting that “[Lind] isn’t your ordinary dean, and Trinity Cathedral isn’t your average church.”

Circle the City with Love During the RNC

CLEVELAND – Trinity Cathedral clergy and members will be among the thousands of people joining hands in silence for 30 minutes on the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge on Sunday, July 17, the first day of the Republican Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 11.36.49 AMNational Convention. The event, called Circle the City with Love, is designed to be a highly visible, non-partisan demonstration of love and unity ahead of RNC, as well as a response to the recent violence in cities such as Baton Rouge, LA, Falcon Heights, MN, and Dallas, TX.

 

The event will take place on the Lorain-Carnegie (Hope Memorial) Bridge that unites Cleveland’s east and west sides. Participants will hold hands or link arms in silence from 3 to 3:30 pm. No traffic will be on the bridge, and the event has an official permit from the city of Cleveland. UPDATE: Due to the large number of expected attendees, the meeting location of Circle the City with Love has changed to the west side entrance of the Lorain-Carnegie (Hope Memorial) Bridge at Lorain Avenue and W. 20th Street instead of the St. Ignatius parking lot. 

All participants are asked to meet on the Bridge at 1:00 PM on Sunday, July 17th and encouraged to take public transportation via the RTA to the W. 25th Street rapid station or Bus # 20, #51 or #22 and walk to the Bridge entrance. Participants can park on area streets and parking lots.

Those who can’t participate at the bridge are encouraged to form circles of intentional silence and prayer at their own parishes at the same time. This event was conceived by Sister Rita Petruziello, CSJ, and is a collaborative initiative of several faith-based, civic and community groups.

Jim Obergefell, Author and Activist for Marriage Equality, to Speak at Trinity Cathedral Aug. 3

CLEVELAND – Jim Obergefell, plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage across the U.S., and co-author, with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Debbie Cenziper, of Love Wins: The Lovers and Lawyers Who Fought the Landmark Case for Marriage Equality (William Morrow), will speak at Trinity Cathedral on August 3 at 7 pm. All are welcome to attend this free event.

One year ago, on June 26, 2015, in a decision that drew headlines around the world, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the constitutional right of gay couples to marry in all 50 states after decades of incremental rulings. The historic case, Obergefell v Hodges, began with a simple wish: John Arthur, paralyzed by ALS, wanted to die a married man.

Jim and John had been together for nearly twenty years in 2013, when they flew from their home in Cincinnati to get married in Maryland, where it had recently become legal. The state of Ohio, however, refused to recognize same-sex marriages, which meant that John would be listed as “unmarried” on his death certificate, with no surviving spouse. Al Gerhardstein, a Cincinnati civil rights attorney with a long history of defending the gay community, took on their case, eventually bringing it and related cases through the federal court system up to the Supreme Court, which, in a historic decision, ruled in their favor.

Jim Obergefell was born in Sandusky, Ohio. He is a civil rights activist who embraced his newfound role after the Supreme Court made marriage equality the law of the land. He has worked with organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign and Equality Ohio, and is the recipient of the Ohio Democratic Party’s Obergefell-Arthur Progressive Hero Award. Politico named Jim as one of its top 50 visionaries of 2015, and Foreign Policy named him one of its 2015 Global Thinkers.

Jim’s talk is co-sponsored by Appletree Books, the ACLU of Ohio, Trinity Cathedral, Equality Ohio, Plexus: Chamber of Commerce for the LGBT Community and Allies, the Case Western Reserve University LGBT Center, CWRU Lambda Law Students Association, and Cleveland-Marshall Allies. Additional co-sponsors to be announced.

Following his talk, Jim will sign copies of Love Wins. Appletree Books will sell copies in Trinity Commons before and after the talk.
