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 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s. 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 Sunday’s” (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!

SPIRITUAL GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES
Small Faith Sharing Groups
Please contact us if you’re interested in joining our Service Committee to help select and organize service opportunities.
The church needs your gifts and skills! If you are interested in being a lector, a Trinity committee member or co-chair, or serving with Trinity in other ways (food team, environment, one-time event leader, mentoring, etc.), please sign up HERE! For more information about what’s involved in being a Trinity committee member or co-chair, please see our UPDATED “2018 Committees” document. In addition, Trinity members who have been active in the past 3-5 months are invited to discern joining our SALT (Servants as Leaders Team). This group of 6-8 people serves as a discernment, visioning, and executive board that tries to continually listen to the needs and desires of the community and God’s invitations for the ministry, as well as help form and support other leaders. If you are interested in discerning running for SALT for the 2019-2021 term, please email Marisa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
