Migrants & Refugees

The HT Migrant Team/Migrant Familia has been accompanying and advocating for refugees since 2017 when we welcomed the Cheikho family from Syria. Today we accompany 18 families from 9 countries. Our newest families include a family of four from Honduras and a family of four from Afghanistan.  We are preparing to welcome Ukranian families. 84 million people are forcibly displaced around the world, and our Migrant Familia stands ready to welcome and accompany these mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons as they seek refuge in our community. Affordable housing remains our number one challenge for families. We are also in need of mentors to accompany families as they adjust to their live in the United States. To learn more about volunteering with the Migrant Team, please email migrantteam@trinity.org.

 

 

Black Catholic History at Holy Trinity

Over the past year, a group of parishioners have been researching and publishing articles on the role of slavery, segregation, and race in Holy Trinity’s history. This special bulletin issue highlights excerpts of this important work and profiles on U.S. Black Catholic candidates for sainthood, as well as further invitations to pray and learn. The full history series may be found at the Holy Trinity History page.

Rooted & Renewing

October 22-24, Washington, DC
Holy Trinity will host a delegation for the annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. The Teach-In is a place for members of the Ignatian family (Jesuit institutions and larger church) to be empowered, re-energized, inspired, challenged, and supported by a community that sees faith and justice integrally linked. Now in its 25th year, the Teach-In has a rich history rooted in honoring the Jesuits and their companions who were martyred in El Salvador in 1989. Keynotes include Olga Segura, author of Birth of A Movement: Black Lives Matter and the Catholic Church, and Maka Black Elk, Executive Director for Truth and Healing, Red Cloud Indian School. Join the HT Delegation

Parishioners for Others

Slavery, Segregation, and Race in Our Parish
We invite Holy Trinity parishioners and others to learn more about the role of slavery, segregation, and race in Holy Trinity’s history. We hope that, in throwing more light on our parish’s past, our work will open doors to reflecting on that past and on its implications for our present, and inspire our daily interactions with others. Visit our website to read the articles.
