Mission and Vision
Trinity Ministry seeks to help Holy Family Church provide a loving, spiritual home for young adults and young families.
We are single, engaged, married, divorced, or widowed and in our 20s, 30s, and 40s. We are young professionals, parents, graduate students, single parents, artists, and workers.
We cultivate a safe place for everyone to be truly themselves, to connect genuinely through Christ-centered fellowship, and to grow fully by serving others. We empower one another through spiritual, communal, and leadership formation as we help the parish fulfill its mission to be “a welcoming, Eucharistic community of disciples of Jesus Christ, connecting faith with life and reaching out to those in need.”
Our regular programs include monthly masses that are young-adult friendly, followed by “2nd Sundays” (see below). Other monthly, quarterly, or yearly events provide opportunities for fellowship, service, spiritual growth, and leadership formation.
Below are some upcoming opportunities. We hope you can join us!
