Relief Efforts

Since August 17, we have collected over $16000 in donations. Based on conversations with our partner, Food for the Poor, Holy Trinity sent $8000 to Food for the Poor to cover the expense of a medevac helicopter to provide food, medical supplies and tents to the area most in need.  Additional funds we receive will continue to be routed through Food for the Poor.

KAMA DC, a nonprofit that provides a platform for immigrants to share their skills and stories, is updating this Google Doc of ways support Afghans arriving in the DC area.

 

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.

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.
