YAC Social Justice

 

Holy Trinity's Young Adult Community is committed to a faith that does justice. To that end, we come together both to serve our sisters and brothers in need and also to reflect on and advocate for a more just society. You are warmly welcome to participate in our service opportunities and the Social Justice Book Club.

Service Opportunities

For all of these opportunities, please contact Kaytlin (yacs+socialjustice@trinity.org) if you're interested and would like more information.

Children's Inn Brunch Program
The Children’s Inn at NIH is a place for children undergoing serious medical treatment and their families. Throughout the year, the YACs host a Sunday brunch for families staying at The Children's Inn. Volunteers are asked to bring an ingredient, and we prepare and serve the meal together on-site. The brunch program allows the families to relax, while alleviating the worries of grocery shopping during this difficult time. Sign up here. 

SOME Volunteering
The Holy Trinity Service Day for SOME falls on the fourth Sunday of each month from 10:30am-1:30pm. Join other HT parishioners to serve coffee and food, accompany guests, and help with cleanup. Interested? Sign up here.
 
YAC McKenna Center Volunteering
The YACs host a Day of Service at The Father McKenna Center 4-5 times a year. Volunteers help with prepping and serving two meals and have the opportunity to talk to and engage some of the homeless men. 6-8 volunteers are needed for each shift (7:30am -10:30am and 10:30am - 1:15pm) or feel free to sign up for both.
 
HT Monthly Service Opportunities
Each month parishioners are invited to join together in service at a different organization in the Washington DC metro area. Peruse upcoming opportunities and sign up here.
 
Georgetown Saturday/Sunday Dinners
Holy Trinity Catholic Church is hosting regular Saturday and Sunday Dinners for the needy in the Georgetown area. Volunteering involves preparing a dish (main course, side dishes, dessert) for ~30 people, greeting guests, serving your dish, and helping with clean-up. Volunteers arrive at 4:15pm to help with prep and set-up and dinner is served at 5:00pm. Once dinner is complete, clean-up should be done by 6:15pm.
