Bilingual La Posada – Friday, December 15th – All members and friends of Trinity Cathedral are invited to celebrate the Advent tradition of La Posada on Friday, December 15th with a service at 6:00 p.m. and traditional Mexican dishes for dinner following. Las Posadas are traditional services that celebrate and remember the journey of the Holy Family to Bethlehem. This year, as we welcome churches from around the Diocese to celebrate with us, we will have a bilingual service. If you have questions, or are interested in contributing to the dinner, please contact david@trinitycathedral.com

A Service of Nine Lessons and Carols for Christmas – Join us on Sunday, December 17th at 6:00 p.m. as we celebrate the arrival of Christmastide in the service first designed for use in King’s College, Cambridge. Music of Mathias, Britten, Rodney Bennett, Rutter, Edwards and others.

Harp Prelude with Paula Provo, Principal Harpist of the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, begins at 5:30 p.m.

Service of Light in the Midst of Darkness – December 21st at 6:00 p.m. – For many of us, Christmas is a bittersweet time of year. It is a time for remembering both persons and events that have been a part of our lives in the past, but that are now changed or gone. This is the time of year with the longest nights, so around this time we offer a quiet, meditative worship service that makes time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God. Please join us for a non-traditional Christmas service.

Luminarias on the Labyrinth – On Sunday, December 17th, join us on the Labyrinth during Coffee Hour to help design and prepare Luminarias for Christmas Eve. All materials are provided and all ages are welcome to participate!

Christmas Eve Family Service – Are you planning to attend the 4:30 p.m. Family Service on Christmas Eve? Would your child or teen like to participate in the Gospel Play? We need readers and helpers to carry the nativity scene to the front of the church. Small but very important roles! Please contact our Children’s Formation Director, Colin Gennett, at colin@trinitycathedral.com with their name and age.

On Saturday, December 30th, the Cathedral Choir will be performing two short holiday concerts at the Heard Museum, located at 2301 N. Central Ave. in Phoenix. Come hear the choir in a new space as we venture out beyond the walls of the cathedral! Concerts are at 11:30 a.m. and again at 1:00 p.m.
