Register for Mission Day

Register now for Mission Day 2024 scheduled for May 4, at St. Matthew's Cathedral. The topic is particularly profound in the post-Covid world, The Great De-Churching: Who's Leaving, Why Are They Going, and What Will it Take to Bring Them Back?
Read more and register here.

The keynote speakers are Jim Davis and Michael Graham who commissioned a study on de-churching in America. The results talk about how people leave the church with respects to their beliefs, behavior and belonging. They provide a detailed sketch of demographics, size, core concerns, church off-ramps and historical roots. They also explore what can be done to re-church those who have left.

Registration Opens For Healing Conference
Tickets Selling Fast

Join us May 10-11 as we welcome Judith MacNutt and the Rev. Canon Dr. Sandra Kerner to the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas and Church of the Incarnation for a powerful Healing Prayer Conference weekend. MacNutt and Kerner will teach the basics of learning how to pray for healing for oneself and others, including the healing of images of God and the emotions, the giving and receiving of forgiveness, and healing from generational sins in our families. This event leading up to the feast of Pentecost is a kickoff for a hoped-for revival of healing ministry in the diocese as we seek the gifts of the Holy Spirit to empower and enable the Church’s healing ministry in a broken and hurting world.

Judith MacNutt is President and Co-founder of Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville, Florida. She has a master’s degree in psychology and is a licensed psychotherapist. She learned early in her career to address client’s spiritual needs as well as psychological, which led her to eventually become director of a house of prayer in Jerusalem. When she returned to Florida she started Christian Healing Ministries with her husband, the late Dr. Francis MacNutt. Judith is a nationally renowned expert on healing prayer, has written several books on the subject, and has traveled extensively to bring this ecumenical training to churches everywhere.

The Rev. Canon Dr. Sandra B. Kerner has dedicated her life’s work to healing ministry, spiritual direction and pastoral care. She is the Canon for Prayer and Pastoral Care at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul in Charleston, and she serves as Canon for Prayer and Healing in the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina. She has a long history of experience with healing prayer including working for Christian Healing Ministries and serving as chaplain and on the board of the Order of St. Luke the Physician.

See the agenda and read more about the event here.

Editor's Note: Registration has opened for the Healing Conference and individuals are buying several tickets at a time for this popular event. We are not only selling tickets to the diocese but also to our ecumenical partners and friends. Tickets are also being sold on a national level through our speaker's website. When we reach seating capacity registration will close. Those interested should buy their tickets now as we expect this event to sell out quickly.

You can choose which Christian Education study to attend.

Welcome Visitors - What to Expect

The Gathering

When you arrive, an usher will hand you a bulletin outlining the order of worship. Feel free to sit anywhere you'd like. Worship begins with the ringing of the bell followed by a processional hymn that you will find in the blue hymnal. We then pray together asking God to prepare our hearts and minds for worship.

Liturgy of the Word

We then listen to God's story throughout the ages. It includes readings from the Old Testament, the book of Psalms, letters of the New Testament, and one of the four Gospels. We stand during the reading of the Gospel and the minister and acolytes process down the aisle to symbolize Jesus' ministry of being among the people. Following the reading of the Gospel, we hear a sermon inviting us to reflect on the Scripture lessons. Next, we respond to what we have heard by affirming our faith in the historic Nicene Creed, which has served as the foundation for Christian belief since the 4th century. We then offer prayers. After our confession, the priest proclaims God's forgiveness of our sins, to which we respond by sharing the peace of God with another by shaking hands. After the Peace, we share some announcements and pray for those celebrating a birthday or anniversary in the coming week.

The Liturgy of the Table

We begin the liturgy of the table by offering the fruits of our labor to God with the offering. While we are deeply grateful for any offering, it is not expected nor required of guests. We continue with the Eucharistic Prayer. During this prayer, we sing a short song of praise called the Sanctus, You may hear a bell ring when the bread and wine are lifted. After the priest blesses the bread and wine we join in saying the Lord's Prayer. The priest then breaks the bread to symbolize Christ's body broken for us. All baptized Christians of any denomination are invited to receive Holy Communion. We encourage those who are not baptized but want to receive communion to speak with the priest about being baptized. The service ends with a blessing from the priest followed by a hymn that sends us out to be the hands and feet of Christ.

Holy Trinity is a community of faith showing God's love for all people by welcoming, equipping, and sending them to serve in the name of the Lord. If you are looking for a church where the Gospel is preached, the Creeds are embraced, and where children and youth can grow in faith; come and worship with us. We are an Episcopal church in the Orthodox tradition.
