Annual Parish Pledge

Why Support Holy Trinity with a Pledge?

The Parish Pledge supports not only our own parishioners, but also our DC community through our Social Justice tithe. Other programs like Sunday Morning Faith Formation, Shepherd's Flock, Raising Faith-Filled Kids and catechist training are all made possible through contributions to the Parish Pledge.

Submitting a Parish Pledge also makes it possible for Holy Trinity to plan financially and better steward your gifts. All pledges are non-binding and enable our parishioners and friends to plan their yearly contribution to Holy Trinity. Donations made to satisfy a pledge can work on any schedule, begin at any time and be made in a variety of methods (including online). Pledges may be completed either by calling our Development Office at (202) 903-2821 or by filling 2017 Parish Pledge brochure and placing it in the offertory basket or mailing it to the Development Office.

The Parish Pledge begins on January 1 and runs through December 31. By making an Annual Pledge to Holy Trinity, you are supporting the very services, ministries, and educational programs that our Parish is called to provide. Thank you!

Promotion of Justice

Holy Trinity Parish tithes 10% of ordinary income to support a variety of Social Justice ministries, locally and internationally. The parish initiated the tithe in the 1980s, and since 2006 has contributed more than $3.5 million to more than 70 agencies that serve the poor and vulnerable. Additionally, Holy Trinity parishioners have given countless hours of volunteer service to local and international community organizations.

Educational Excellence

Holy Trinity offers one of the largest Religious Education (RE) and Faith Formation programs in the DC area. We enroll around 750 children in the RE program, which includes Shepherd’s Flock, a pioneering program for students with physical or learning challenges.

Founded in 1818, Holy Trinity School is one of the few coeducational elementary schools in the Jesuit tradition in the United States. The school serves more than 300 racially, ethnically and socio-economically diverse children in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Nearly $670,000 in need-based tuition assistance is distributed annually. Holy Trinity was one of 50 private schools in the country to be awarded the National Blue Ribbon for Excellence by the Department of Education in 2016.
