2021-0731 Vigil

On this, the eve of the Lord's Day and the feast of the Procession of the Cross, we serve Vigil at 6:00 PM. We are OPEN, and you are WELCOME!

In the Orthodox Church, the liturgical day begins in the evening with the setting of the sun. This practice follows the Biblical account of creation: “And there was evening and there was morning, one day” (Gen 1.5). On the eve of the Lord’s Day, we gather for “Vigil” — the solemn and meditative services of Vespers and Matins.

The service (mostly sung) takes us through creation, sin, and salvation in Christ. It leads us to the meditation of God’s word and the glorification of his love for men. It instructs us and allows us to praise God for the particular events or persons whose memory is celebrated and made present to us in the Church. It prepares us for the sleep of the night and the dawn of the new day to come. On the evening before the Divine Liturgy, it begins our movement into the most perfect communion with God in the sacramental mysteries.

2021-0725 Divine Liturgy

2021-0725 Divine Liturgy

On this day, the Lord's Day, we celebrate the Divine Liturgy at 9:30 AM (Please note our start time). Today is also the commemoration of the Dormition (Falling Asleep) of the Righteous Anna, mother of the Most Holy Theotokos. The Gospel readings are Matthew 8:28-9:1 and Luke 8:16-21. We are open, and you are welcome!

The Divine Liturgy is the common work of Orthodox Christians officially gathered to constitute the Church. It is the action of the Church assembled by God in order to be together in one community to worship, to pray, to sing, to hear God’s Word, to be instructed in God’s commandments, to offer itself with thanksgiving in Christ to God the Father, and to have the living experience of God’s eternal kingdom through communion with the same Christ Who is present in his people by the Holy Spirit.

Turn right on Van Ness. The Cathedral is on your right on Green St., which is one block after Union St. Approximately 5 minutes from the bridge. From the South: Take Freeway 101 North to the "S. Van Ness/Golden Gate Bridge" exit. Turn left onto Van Ness Avenue (Hwy. 101). Green Street is 20 blocks from there, past Broadway and Vallejo. The Cathedral is located on your left at the corner of Green and Van Ness. From the East: After crossing the Bay Bridge, follow the signs for "US 101/Golden Gate Bridge." Exit at South Van Ness Avenue/Golden Gate Bridge. Turn left onto Van Ness Avenue (Hwy.101). Green Street is 20 blocks from there, past Broadway and Vallejo.

When approaching from the south, it is usually faster to take Franklin Street (one block west of Van Ness) after exiting the freeway. Parking is always a problem, since HTC does not have a parking lot. Street parking is usually hard to find, especially for evening services. For special services and events, parking information will be noted on the schedule of services whenever possible. Parking is usually available at St Brigid's School for all of our Passion and Resurrection services at Holy Trinity Cathedral. The parking will open 1 hour before each service and close 1 hour after the end of the service. St Brigid's is on Broadway between Van Ness and Franklin, about two blocks from Holy Trinity. A bit farther away, you can usually find free street parking at the north end of Van Ness Ave, at Aquatic Park or nearby at Fort Mason. It's a 15-minute walk from there to the cathedral, and city buses operate on this route every few minutes.
