Rites

Our life together at Trinity includes rites and rituals to mark many passages of life:

Baptisms

Infants, children and adults are all baptized at Trinity. The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is offered on several Sundays throughout the year, including the Baptism of Our Lord (January), First Sunday after Easter (spring), Pentecost (late spring) and All Saints Day (November). If you are interested in baptism at Trinity, please talk with Ginger Bitikofer at 216-774-0407 or via email.

Confirmation and Reception

Trinity offers confirmation classes for youth and adults and participates in a regional confirmation and reception service with the Bishop of Ohio each spring. Learn more about youth confirmation here, and more about adult confirmation and reception here.

Weddings and Blessing of Unions

Weddings and the blessings of sacred unions are integral parts of Trinity’s ongoing worship life, and we are pleased to share this joy with couples. You can find complete information about holding your blessing or wedding at Trinity Cathedral here: Weddings and Sacred Unions at Trinity Cathedral (PDF)

Funerals

It is an honor for the Trinity community to accompany people during times of loss and to offer a place of hospitality and welcome. Episcopal funeral and memorial services are based on the order of service in the Book of Common Prayer, which says; “the liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all its meaning in the resurrection.  Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we too, shall be raised.”

Please talk with Ginger Bitikofer at 216-774-0407 or via email to inquire about holding a funeral at Trinity or to request a meeting with the clergy staff for planning a funeral in advance.

In the tradition of cathedrals, Trinity has a columbarium in which the remains of the deceased can be interred and honored. Please email Ginger Bitikofer for more information about purchasing a niche in the columbarium.
