The Commentary

Dear Ones,

I pray you a blessed Holy Week. Tonight begins the 3 holy days called The Triduum (pronounced trih-dyu-um). 

Tonight at 7 p.m. during our Maundy Thursday service we will honor the Mandatum (the command): to love one another as I have loved you. We will be part of washing each other's feet, and remembering the Last Supper. Afterwards, we will strip the altar and remove the Blessed Sacrament to the altar of repose as an act of preparing a tomb for burial.

Desert Diversity: April Olney Gallery Exhibit

Steven Derks worked for the Arizona Department of Agriculture, which resulted in his appreciation for the aesthetic diversity of cactus and succulents. While photographing a saguaro cactus from an overhead perspective, he aligned the plant’s spines to reveal its bio-symmetry. “Cacti are so remarkable in their symmetry that it is difficult to believe they are living things. I’m endlessly fascinated by these expressions of nature.” His work can be found in museums and private art collections in the United States and abroad. His work was displayed in the Oval Office during the Clinton administration.

The Southwest Society of Botanical Artists (SWSBA) Is an Arizona-based chapter of The American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA). Botanical Art accurately and artistically depicts plants in a way that would allow a botanist to identify the species portrayed. They also do Scientific Illustration, a sub-discipline of Botanical Art usually intended for publishing. This exhibition is intended to raise awareness and appreciation of plants native to Arizona, their beauty, and their diversity.

Music at Trinity

Urban Nocturnes Concert

April 21 | 4:00 p.m.


Trinity’s Resident Ensemble, Urban Nocturnes, returns for their spring concert, featuring Karen Sinclair, Christopher McKay, Melita Hunsinger and Erin Finkelstein, on April 21.

All four kick off the program with the Quartet in E-flat Major by 19th Century Finnish composer and clarinetist Berhard Crusell, a rare late-Classical exploration of clarinet chamber music. This is followed by German-Dutch composer Julius Röntgen’s String Trio No. 2 “Dvorak,” a lilting and indulgent fantasia.

In the second part of the program, the soulful colors of the clarinet and viola entwine in Rebecca Clarke’s Prelude, Allegro and Pastorale, composed in the 1940s, and Jewish-Austrian Hans Gál’s Serenade for

Clarinet, Violin and Cello combines Romantic lyricism with Modern chromaticism.

Tickets are $25 and student discount tickets are $10 (must present valid student ID at the door). Both are available online and at the door.

This Concert is Sponsored by The Trinity Music Guild

Trinity Quilters Gathering

April 6 | 10:00 a.m.

Trinity Quilters use their talents to transform pieces of fabric into creative quilts. Once a quilt is finished complete with prayer ties, the congregation knots those ties while saying a prayer for the recipient.  

These quilts are created to bring comfort to those in need. Please contact Rev. Omar Rodriguez at if you or someone you love would be comforted by one of these hand-made quilts.

We invite anyone over 10 years of age who might want to learn more about quilting to join us. We meet from 10 am to 2 pm on two Saturdays a month as the Cathedral schedule permits. Our time together always includes a brown bag lunch.

Our other meetings through summer 2024 (subject to change) will be: April 20th, May 18th & 25th, and June 8th & 22nd. These dates are subject to change depending on other events at the Cathedral.

Thank you to all who have helped provide healing gifts to members of the Trinity family, those they love, and those fleeing domestic abuse who are sheltered by The Sojourner Center. 

Trinity Seniors Potluck

April 9 | 12:00 p.m.

Join Trinity Seniors for a Picnic on the Labyrinth next month!

We will take our usual gathering outdoors for our April meeting to enjoy the beautiful weather and have some fun! Please be sure to bring your favorite picnic food.

We ask all who are planning to attend to RSVP by responding to the E-vite or signing up at the desk in the Olney Gallery on Sundays.

Garfield Food Pantry

As the Spring semester gets underway at Garfield, the food pantry has found it is running low on several much-needed items, especially:

Diced tomatoes (15 oz. cans)


Oatmeal (1 lb. containers)

Dried milk (2 lb. or less)


Tomato sauce

Spaghetti (1 lb. boxes)

As a reminder, please do not bring items in glass containers, as they are likely to break between when we give the food to the children and when they get home.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support this vital ministry to ensure children in need are getting the nutrition their growing bodies require.
