Our main sanctuary is open for weddings and is the perfect venue for gatherings of up to 450 people. St. Mary's Chapel along with St. Peter's Hall provide both a wedding venue (max 75) and a reception space. Please note that weddings will not be conducted during the seasons of Lent and Holy Week (which lasts from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday), except in cases of emergency need.

Trinity was the first Episcopal church in San Francisco to celebrate same-sex unions. The Episcopal Church USA has likewise extended the sacrament of marriage to same-gender couples in accordance with marriage equality.

baptisms

Our Anglican tradition recognizes sacraments as “outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace.” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 857) Holy Baptism and the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) are the two great sacraments given by Christ to his Church.

In the case of Baptism, the outward and visible sign is water, in which the person is baptized in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; the inward and spiritual grace is union with Christ in his death and resurrection, birth into God’s family the Church, forgiveness of sins, and new life in the Holy Spirit.

Baptisms occur as a part of the Sunday morning worship service. Private baptisms are only available in emergency situations.
