Priest-in-Charge: The Rev. Patricia Cunningham

Pastor Trish was born in Vancouver, Canada, and grew up in Southern California, Sydney Australia and England. Several transcendental experiences as a child set her on the spiritual path. The first was a direct experience of God's presence while sitting on a swing in a school playground, the second was an invitation to receive God's love, through a neighborhood Bible study for  children and the third was the relationship with a very frail and elderly nun at Loreto Convent, who embodied fierce love and deep peace. 

Trish attended the University of Bristol, Kings College, London and the University of British Columbia. She holds master's degrees from Emory University, the London School of Economics and Yale Divinity School. Special ministry interests include youth and young adult ministry. She is the spouse of David, a recovering corporate executive and instructor at Cal Berkeley, International Program. They are the parents of 4 member of the Millennial generation, and 2 dogs. Trish's interests include walking the dogs, reading, British television, swimming, theatre, and golf.

Good news!!  We were selected by national fund!! 

[Episcopal News Service | November 2] With aging churches throughout the nation facing decay and physical distress, Partners for Sacred Places and the National Trust for Historic Preservation announce an unprecedented $14 million National Fund for SacredPlaces to assist churches in need of repair and restoration. Two Episcopal churches, Christ Church in Philadelphia and Trinity-St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in San Francisco, are among the first 14 recipients.

The Rev. Patricia Cunningham, priest-in-charge of Trinity + St. Peter's, San Francisco, tells DioCal News: "The selection of Trinity-St. Peter's as a participant in this national campaign to preserve landmark sacred spaces is a testimony to the importance of the church to the history and cultural fabric of San Francisco. We invite all to join us in making this gorgeous space a vibrant center for the arts and spirituality."

Founded in 1849, Trinity Episcopal Church, designed by the architect of the ferry building, is the mother-church of Protestant Christianity in the western United States. The exquisite sanctuary features glorious stained glass, a masterpiece 1926 Skinner organ and treasures from the 1915 Exposition. We are SF Landmark #65.

Now in it’s seventeenth year, Trinity†St. Peter’s Taizé Service has become a community treasure. Visit and experience it for yourself. Wednesdays at 7:30PM.

Read more about Taizé at Trinity+St. Peter's here.



A service of Celtic prayers, readings and reflection, Holy Communion and prayers for healing takes place each week in the chapel.  The Celtic tradition developed independently of Roman Catholicism in the British Isles. Today we incorporate neo-Celtic elements such as understanding nature as a source of divine revelation and the immediate presence of Christ with us, among us and in one another.  The service lasts for about 45 minutes.  Sundays at 9:00AM.




Our ministry among the un-housed of San Francisco includes providing hospitality once a month to those who attend Open Cathedral worship at UN Plaza and leading worship at the Church of the Open Door on the first Thursday of every month.  Contact the clergy if you are interested in volunteering!
