All youth, grades K through 12 are invited to participate in Holy Trinity's Religious Education program. Classes begin in mid September and finish in late May. Classes are held each week on Sunday mornings from 10:10 – 11:15 am. All children are expected to attend regularly and participate at Mass on a weekly basis.
The four strands of the Catechism of the Catholic Church...
* The Commandments and Prayer*
...are interwoven to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to our children so that they begin to understand how to live the Gospel every day. The doctrines, rites, and rituals of the Church are introduced and explained throughout the year as they touch the student’s experience through liturgy, service, and parish life.
Service is an important focus of Holy Trinity's Religious Education Program. Students and their families are invited to participate in a variety of service opportunities throughout the year. More information and calendars can be found on our Service Opportunities page.
The Parish religious Education program provides their 3rd-6th grade classes an opportunity to practice and serve as Liturgical Ministers in the Church or Theatre at a 9:00 am mass once a month. Each class will host one mass a year. Information and calendars for You th Masses can be found on our Youth Liturgical Ministries page.
Religious Education teachers are called Catechists. A Catechist, (from the Greek word “to echo”) is someone commissioned by the Parish “to hand down” its faith tradition. Catechists are a valuable gift and resource to the life and mission of the Parish. They volunteer their time, talents, and love of Christ’s teachings to give witness to their students of God’s love in their lives.
All of our catechists and volunteers are asked to comply with the Archdiocese of Washington’s Child Protection Policy.
