Liturgical style and practice

Our liturgies are broad to high church. Our Spanish language service also celebrates feasts such as Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dia del Los Muertos, Tres Reyes.


Trinity/Old Swedes has been in existence for 325 years.  We have been through all the ups and downs that go with a parish of that age.  We are committed to following the way of Jesus, rooted in our community, a beacon for social justice, and grounded in worship.  The Associate Rector can expect a collegial and supportive work environment, intentional mentoring, and the opportunity to work with the Rector, Staff, and Lay Leadership to live fully into our baptismal covenant.


The church in  the post covid world is still adjusting to its new identity and new life patterns of its people.  We are an urban church with all the challenges that brings.
