Wednesday Evenings at Trinity are a great opportunity for our community members to gather during the week. Wednesday evenings begin with Evensong at 6 p.m., followed by supper ($6 donation) and an educational program at 7:30 p.m. Times may vary for Bicentennial events. See the schedule below.

Trinity Cathedral: A Sacred Space

Mr. Wayne Bifano, Mrs. Martha Bifano, and Mr. Michael Wells
Wednesday, October 5, 7:30 p.m.
Nave

On November 9, 2016, Trinity will be 200 years old. That is a significant milestone. Today, Trinity is the Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio, but it began as an idea and was organized by nine men with a vision. This program will focus on the structure of Trinity Cathedral: its inception, its construction, and its presence in downtown Cleveland. This Gothic building on Euclid Avenue tells many stories and we will share these with you this night.

Trinity Cathedral: Shaping Our Community

Mr. Wayne Bifano, Mrs. Martha Bifano, and Mr. Michael Wells
Wednesday, October 19, 7:30 p.m.
Conference Room C/D

You may know Trinity as the place for Forum Lectures/Podcasts, “A Place at the Table”, and Brown Bag Concerts. All of these offerings have their roots in Trinity’s history of feeding the mind, the body, and the spirit of the community it serves. But who is Trinity? What is Trinity? Let us examine the rich history of Trinity from its founding in 1816. Who were the leaders that guided this community of faith as it weathered wars, Civil and World, the Great Depression, and internal struggles of high vs low church, the role of women, civil rights and human rights?

Trinity Cathedral: Shaping Our Community

Mr. Wayne Bifano, Mrs. Martha Bifano, and Mr. Michael Wells
Wednesday, November 16, 7:30 p.m.
Conference Room C/D

The story of Trinity and its history continues. Thus far we have explored its beginnings and the people who supported its mission and message. In this session, we will examine how Trinity has served the community, including how Trinity has been linked with Cleveland from its founding and its growth from a frontier village to an industrial, entrepreneurial city, strategically placed on the shores of Lake Erie and at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River. The story will transition from the 19th to the 21st centuries.

Losing your self; Finding your self

Wednesday, December 14, 7:30 p.m.

Jesus, throughout his ministry, routinely posits a “koan” to his disciples — “those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.” What does Jesus mean by this statement? Can he possibly be serious? We will explore what Jesus is actually asking of his followers and how this “koan” is to be lived out.
