TSP “Open Cathedral” Hospitality

Open Cathedral is a worship service offered by the San Francisco Night Ministry in partnership with inter-denominational congregations in the Bay Area who provide lunch for the participants.

Each Sunday at 2:00 p.m. the community gathers in the ‘open air’ at the intersection of Leavenworth and McAllister streets. Six times a year, Trinity+St. Peter’s buys and prepares food for 75+ people to support Open Cathedral. The meal includes a choice of meat and cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, along with fruit and juice. 

On the first Sunday of each odd numbered month, Trinity†St.Peter’s provides lunch for those who attend the Open Cathedral worship service at UN Plaza. We take the food and drinks down to UN Plaza before their 2:00 p.m. service, worship with the people there, and help serve the meal.  Please join us for the food preparation, the worship service, or both!

Next Door Shelter

Are you interested in serving our homeless brothers and sisters on a regular basis? Pastor Trish will be leading worship on the first Thursday of every month this year at Church of the Open Door, located in the library of the Next Door Shelter. The short service of Eucharist is lively and and the faith of the people we meet there always inspires. We stay for a brief reception after the service, providing an opportunity to get to know members of the shelter community one-on-one. You are invited to join Pastor Trish at any time. Please send an email to let her know of your interest. priest-in-charge@trinity-stpeters.org


Martin Luther King Day of Service

Each year on Martin Luther King Day, members of our congregation are encouraged to engage in a ‘Day of Service’. It is an opportunity for every member of the Trinity + St. Peter’s family to actively express discipleship.

Each act of service helps us build an inventory of the interests and gifts of our congregation while also deepening our understanding of the hopes, needs and concerns of our community. In past years we have encouraged service to the church as well as participation in community service activities sponsored by organizations like the National Park service.

Community Dinners

Each month this program provides a meal and ‘community’ to members of our neighborhood, including the homeless, marginally housed and low income seniors.

In addition to the congregation at Old First Presbyterian, different organizations provide the food, serve dinner and eat with the guests. Several times a year, Trinity+St. Peter’s  supports this program. We buy, prepare, serve and eat a meal with our neighbors.
