Adult Faith Formation

Every disciple of the Lord Jesus shares in this mission. To do their part, adult Catholics must be mature in faith and well equipped to share the Gospel, promoting it in every family circle, in every church gathering, in every place of work, and in every public forum. They must be women and men of prayer whose faith is alive and vital, grounded in a deep commitment to the person and message of Jesus. (Our Hearts Were Burning within Us:  A Pastoral Plan for Adult Faith Formation in the United States, USCCB, 2001)

Adult Faith Formation at Holy Trinity aims to form adults in the fullness of the faith through scripture study, lectures, and sacramental preparation to increase knowledge of the faith, encourage a life of prayer, and promote active involvement in the parish community.

Lenten Scripture Study

"The words of Sacred Scripture were not written to remain imprisoned on papyrus, parchment or paper, but to be received by a person who prays, making them blossom in his or her heart." - Pope Francis, 2021


This Lent, Holy Trinity will offer a scripture study on the first half of the Gospel of Mark. Two groups will meet: one on Sunday mornings, and another on Friday mornings, both in person for five consecutive weeks.

Mary's Magnificat and Hannah's Song

Sunday, December 11, 10:15am, Trinity Hall

A special faith formation event sponsored by the Women Who Stay to celebrate the Women Who Sing!  Hannah, the mother of Samuel, and Mary of Nazareth, the mother of Jesus, are two prophetic voices of Advent that are muted in our Catholic Sunday Lectionary.  Many of us know Mary’s Magnificat in the first chapter of Luke, but did you know that the entire song she sang while visiting her cousin Elizabeth is never read as the Gospel on any Sunday during any liturgical cycle?  And the prophetic song of Hannah that Mary echoes is also never heard in any Sunday Mass either?  We’ll explore these voices absent from the Lectionary.
