adult faith formation

To inspire you to continue growing in your faith, Holy Trinity Parish offers a great diversity of Faith Formation opportunities.

Each year, Holy Trinity Parish brings in nationally-known speakers to inspire us to look more deeply at what it means to follow Jesus Christ and reasons for choosing to develop a deeper friendship with God, Father, Son & Holy Spirit.  Last year alone, over 2,000 parishioners came out to hear the various speakers.

Our annual women’s brunch is held in October.  Each year, the women of the parish come together for a fun morning of reflection, visiting, and great food.

Throughout the year, Holy Trinity Parish offers various small group studies of Scripture.  Typically, a group might be a couple of dozen and the sessions generally run for six weeks.  Our studies are a great way to dig into the Word!

Our weekly Faith Formation program for youth incorporates five special sessions for adults -- parents/guardians, grandparents -- to encourage lifelong learning and growth in our Catholic faith.

This family-based, community-oriented formation centers around studying Scripture and our Catholic Tradition, connecting Mass, faith, and life experiences as parents and children gather in meaningful 1½ hour, interactive sessions, twice a month, August-May, in the Education Center.

small christian communities

A Small Christian Community is a group of 8–12 adults, or families, who come together, usually in each others’ homes to share with one another God’s story through Sacred ScriptureSmall Christian Communities are not just about meeting individual needs, but they are also about building up the parish community and strengthening the life and mission of the parish. 

Holy Trinity Parish Bookstore offers a variety of Bibles and other books to further Catholic education. Our Bookstore is located in the Education Center, in the Faith Formation Office. During certain times of the year our mobile bookstore is located in the Narthex to provide further accessibility to seasonal reading materials and gift items.

Interested in Becoming catholic?

The Rite of Christian Initiation is a unique process for adults, youth and children who desire to grow in their relationship with God through the Catholic faith. 


This ministry is primarily for those who are unbaptized and baptized Christians interested in exploring Catholicism. It is also a great opportunity for baptized Catholics who have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation that would like to learn more about our faith as they consider receiving that Sacrament.
