Fall Just Faith Retreat The Social Justice Ministry will be hosting two retreat opportunities on Race & Healing beginning with an in-person retreat on August 28. This eight-week program guides participants in telling the truth about the history of racism in the United States, that we might work toward true reconciliation with God and restoration with one another. Faith and Racial Healing: Embracing Truth, Justice, and Restoration will guide participants in the difficult but necessary conversation about the historical roots of racial injustice. Following the in-person retreat, the weekly meetings will be held virtually. Group 1 will meet Tuesdays at 7pm and Group 2 will meet Thursdays at 12pm. Meetings typically last 1.5 - 2 hours. Register

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.

ADW Department of Life Issues
The Pro-Life Office was established in 1990 to promote a greater respect for human life and to be a catalyst for advocacy, education, evangelization, direct assistance and spiritual efforts on behalf of God’s great gift of human life and human love. The Office of Life Issues continues to advocate for the life and dignity of the human person through the Rally and Mass for Life, partnerships with parishes and community agencies, and legislative action through the Maryland Catholic Conference.
