2020 Trinity Choir Companion Tour to Canterbury and York, UK

Join the Trinity Choir on their choral tour to the UK and experience the wonders of Canterbury and York while hearing the choir sing at Canterbury Cathedral and York Minster.

The Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Choir of Girls, Boys and Adults will sing in residence for a week each this coming summer at Canterbury Cathedral and York Minster.

The dates of the trip are Monday, 3 August through Tuesday, 18 August, and traveling alongside the choir are a group of companions, drawn from the cathedral parish and from around the diocese. The Very Rev. Nathan LeRud, Dean of the Cathedral, will serve as chaplain to the companions, offering daily classes and meditations.

The choir and companion tours are both being booked by Willamette Travel Agency, and the members of the tour have the option of booking their own flights or traveling on the group flights. Both travel options include hotel stays, bus transfers, admissions to sight-seeing venues and two end-of-residency banquets.

Anti-Racism Training for Faith Leaders

Dismantling Racism Workshop: Anti-Racism Training for Leaders of Faith Communities

Especially now, work on justice and inclusion presents itself as an imperative to communities of faith. In the Episcopal Church, one of the ways we live into this mandate to “strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being” (BCP p.305) is through General Convention resolutions requiring anti-racism training for those in positions of leadership.

All church members are invited and encouraged to participate in anti-racism training offered by the Commission to End Racism.

In the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon, all persons serving in the following capacities are required to take anti-racism training sponsored by the Episcopal Church:

  1. Clergy in any form of church ministry
  2. Diocesan Council
  3. Standing Commission
  4. Board of Trustees
  5. Diocesan Staff
  6. Leaders of key diocesan committees and commissions
  7. Convocation Deans and Presidents
  8. Deputies to General Convention

The next Dismantling Racism Workshop offered by the diocesan Commission to End Racism is:

February 29, 2020

Enneagram Workshop: 9 Styles in Relationship

Time & Location

Feb 01, 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 147 NW 19th Ave, Portland, OR 97209, USA

About the Event

The Enneagram: 9 Styles in Relationship

Presenter: Dale Rhodes, MA, MS

Saturday, February 1, 2020 (9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)

Price: $50  (includes lunch)

Whether new to the Enneagram or seeking a refresher, this workshop promises to inform and deepen our understanding and application this incredible tool in our lives and work.  In this workshop, we will use the Enneagram in the context of our relationships. In any relationship, be it friendship, family, work or romantic, most of us can remember disagreeing about something insignificant.  Often, a minor spat can spiral into a major conflict without deeper exploration.  The Enneagram is a powerful tool to get to the heart of the matter in conflict, as well as deepen intimacy by helping us to identify our own blind spots and compulsions.

In relationship, the Enneagram also helps us cultivate understanding and empathy for the blind spots and compulsions of those we interact with.  Perhaps we identify first as The Protector, someone who brings focus to the value of strength; while our friend is The Romantic, someone who brings focus to the value of inner experience. Understanding these “lenses” through which we filter information can help us focus on useful ways to deepen our interactions.  This understanding creates a bridge to support better communications, more ease, and greater compassion.

Join us as we engage in lively dialogue and vibrant inquiry about the nine types. Appropriate for all levels.
