The word “ministry” comes from the Greek word “diakoneo” which means “to serve.”  In the New Testament, ministry is seen as service to God and to others, and Jesus himself provided the model for Christian ministry, centered not on our own needs but on those of others in our community.  At Holy Trinity, we classify as “ministries” those parish-sponsored organizations and groups which primarily exist to provide a service to our greater faith community.


Our parish also provides many opportunities for prayer and faith-sharing, as well as other organizations which are fraternal and social in nature.  Although these groups are not considered ministries of the parish, we encourage all parishioners to consider sharing in one of these faith-filled and community-building groups.
