Job Seekers Ministry
The Job Seekers' Ministry at Holy Trinity is a Support Group for people who are unemployed or underemployed in search of new work. The group has been meeting weekly since January 2001 when our then pastor, Fr. Bill Byron,S.J., took an interest in ministering to those who were undergoing changes in careers and employment. His book, Finding Work Without Losing Heart has been a source of good practical information for many of our parishioners looking for work. The Group is open to all regardless of affiliation.
The Job Seekers Support Group provides mutual support and encouragement. Participants account for their progress and plans moving forward. In addition, they share their experiences and provide advice helpful to participants including networking connections and job leads. A registration form is required and can be found at the bottom of this page. Registrants should read Participation Guidelines before registering. The meetings are facilitated by Joe Ryan, a parishioner and professional Career Management Consultant. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 202-362-0704.
The Support Group meets on Thursday evenings at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library (R St & Wisconsin Ave NW) from 7:00pm - 9:00pm.
The Parish bulletin http://trinity.org/bulletins/ has a Weekly Events Calendar on page 6 with the day, date, and time, and location of meetings. Job Search Readiness Workshops are held several times during the year.
