Trinity Cathedral will host an interfaith musical liturgy featuring Rabbi Michael Cahana and Dean Nathan LeRud, Cantor Ida Rae Cahana, and the combined choirs of Trinity Cathedral and the Pacific Youth Choir. Combining interfaith readings, solemn prayers, and breathtaking music, we will honor loved ones lost and seen no longer, including those whose names are inscribed on the ribbons presently tied to the Cathedral gate. Whatever your faith, including none at all, you are invited to find solace at this communal vigil of remembrance. Originally scheduled for the day before, this gathering is free and open to the public.
