Pies should be dropped off on Saturday August 7th by 3pm!
We are in need of parishioners who have received the gift of Faith with gratitude and are interested in helping other parish families to share this amazing gift with their own children. Our Faith Formation program at Holy Trinity is family centered and we plan to support our parish parents in their God-given role as primary educators of their children.
If you love our Faith and would like to help families grow to be the domestic church they are called to be, we would love you to consider being a leader of a small group.
Leading a small group of parents and children is a weekly commitment from September through May. It does require a heart for the Church and her teachings, rooted in a deep love for our Blessed Lord. Sharing your love for our Lord is a transformational experience in your own spiritual life. Our Blessed Lord cannot be outdone in generosity, and nowhere is this more apparent than when you help support a brother or sister in Christ as he/she walks more closely with Jesus.
Group leaders are needed on Sunday evenings from 6:30pm-8:00pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 5:00pm-6:30pm and 7:00pm-8:30pm. Please contact Margi Loesel at email@example.com for more information. Thank you for considering.
Our children’s faith formation program registration is opening on Monday, July 19th. You will find the registration form on the Holy Trinity Updates page: https://holytrinityupdates.com/formation/fff-re/
Our faith formation program is in person this year and family style. The details will be on the same link and available on Monday.
Please remember that sacramental preparation is a 2-year process in the Arlington Diocese. If you plan to have your child receive any sacraments in 2023, you need to have that child registered with Faith Formation in 2021-2022 school year.
Registration closes on August 20th. Classes will fill on a first come first serve basis.
Calling the youngest members of our parish family! Do you have a 3-4 year old who enjoys getting out for some weekly fun? How about a Storytime with crafts?

For those families who missed our parish Vacation Bible School, this past week, we welcome you to come anytime up until noon on July 9th as we have the hallways decorated with stories from the Old Testament. Walk your child through and tell them an abbreviated version of Salvation History using the walls as a backdrop. There is a scavenger hunt to play and those who complete it, can stop by the faith formation office for a prize. The office will be open from 8:30am-5:30pm Tu-Friday for the prize(July 6th-9th). But if you drop off a completed scavenger hunt off hours (put it under the faith formation door), we will make arrangements with you for prize pick up.
The Theme is “Bible Story Adventures: The Blessings of Obedience!”
and it will focus on the Old Testament.
We welcome rising Kindergarteners to rising 6th graders!
If you have a 3 or 4 year old child and would like to be a part of VBS, consider joining us for the closing assembly every day of VBS. Parents are to stay with these little ones. They can enjoy a skit, a puppet show and some closing songs. Spaces limited.
The 5th-6th graders will have a different track. They will learn these stories, but they are going to be putting on skits for the younger participant. So if your 5th-6th grader enjoys getting in front of a group of little children and hamming it up for a short daily skit, this will be a lot of fun. Additionally they will be given different responsibilities and activities that we think they will enjoy.
We will be taking registrations first come first served and spaces are very limited compared to past years! Your registration will not be confirmed until after we receive payment. Please look for an email from us with payment information sometime after you register. After you receive that email, you will have 24 hours to submit payment to secure your spot. If we don’t receive your payment we will need to cancel your registration and offer your spot to the next child on the list. We really wish ALL the children that want to participate were able to, but sadly we still need to limit our numbers so please submit payment promptly when you receive our email to guarantee your registration!
Needed: if you have any brown paper grocery bags that you are looking to recycle, we would be grateful to receive them. We are also in need of empty paper towel rolls and empty toilet paper rolls. I will leave a collection box outside of the Faith Formation office.
Two quick, but important, notes:
– This immersive and interactive drive-through prayer “walk” will be fully experienced with your smart phone (or other smart device); this will allow you to listen to the sights and voices of Bethlehem.
– To be fully ready when you arrive, download the “SoundCloud” App to your smart device AND create a SoundCloud account before you come to Holy Trinity.
