ACOLYTES
Trinity Cathedral invites adults and children to serve as Acolytes. Our older children and youth are invited to participate in the Sunday morning services through being an Acolyte, which provides an opportunity to train our young people and to give them an opportunity to serve the Church body. Acolyte training is available from the Cathedral clergy and seminarians. Contact the office at office@trinitycatheralpgh.org for more information.

ALTAR GUILD

The primary duty of Altar Guild members is to ready the table for Eucharist, approximately 550 of which are celebrated at the Cathedral each year.  Members prepare the linens, candles and sacred vessels and care for the four altars of the Cathedral.  The Altar Guild also prepares for weddings, funerals, and special Diocesan worship services and celebrations, in addition to the regular Sunday and weekday services.  New volunteers are trained by experienced Guild members.

Those who particularly appreciate the beauty of the liturgy and desire to serve in a quiet, prayerful way will find a welcome home in the Altar Guild.

The Altar Guild is now down to seven(7) members, but we cover more than 365 services held at the Cathedral throughout the year (not only for our Sunday and weekday parishioners, but for Diocesan functions as well). That is a lot of work being done by very few people. If you have the time, we can provide the training and would welcome new members with open arms and grateful hearts. Please contactPriscilla Castner at (412)741-8848 or email lpcastner@hotmail.com if you are interested in learning more about how our guild serves the Cathedral.

Another area falling under the Altar Guild’s purview is altar flowers. The altar arrangements at the high altar cost almost $100 per Sunday. If you wish to defray those costs on a given Sunday, you may sponsor flowers in memory/in honor of a loved one for a suggested minimum donation of $60. Any Sunday not covered by a sponsored memorial is picked up by the Altar Guild, and the yearly outlay is considerable. If you would like to sponsor flowers, please contact Priscilla Castner at 412-741-8848 or email lpcastner@hotmail.com
