This year, Western and Orthodox Easter coincide.

Members and friends of Trinity are invited to join the congregation of Saint Stephen-in-the-Fields (where the chaplain is honorary assistant) for the Good Friday service. Parishioners from Saint Stephen's will join us at the chapel on Maundy Thursday.

Eucharist

The liturgies in Trinity College Chapel are open to all members of the college, the university, and the wider community. Most weekday services are organized by students of the Faculty of Divinity, but Wednesday Choral Evensong and the Sunday services are particularly open to participation by other members of the community, as readers, servers, and musicians. Whether you're interested in regular involvement, or occasional participation, please contact the chaplain to discuss possibilities.

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR

There are many other activities (classes, concerts, rehearsals) and occasional liturgies during the academic term. In summer these tend to be tied to conferences, reunions, weddings and funerals. For further information, please contact the chaplain.

SPECIAL SERVICES DURING TERM

The choir sings Choral Evensong on Wednesdays at 5:15 p.m. during the academic term, and on other special occasions.

The full, classical choral observance of the Triduum (Maundy Thursday Eucharist, Good Friday Veneration of the Cross, and Great Vigil of Easter) is offered when Easter falls within the academic year.

FUNERALS AND MEMORIAL SERVICES

We try wherever possible to make the chapel available for funerals and memorial services to members of the wider university community, and to graduates and former staff of Trinity College. Please contact the chaplain to discuss this possibility.

Detailed wishes around funeral details may be recorded by individuals at any time with the chaplain's office, and a pamphlet to help with this is available. It must be understood, however, that the legal next-of-kin are those who have the final power of determination with regard to funeral arrangements.
