Purified- Coming in 2021!
Holy Trinity is excited to announce an incredible event for families, ages 13 and up. Purified will take place in 2021 (date yet to be determined) and will feature international speaker and author Jason Evert, who has spoken to more than one million teens on the topic of chastity. Purified brings parents and teens together to discover God’s plan for love and opens up an opportunity to continue the discussion about this important topic at home with resources that work. The event includes a talk from Jason where he mixes humor with down-to-earth practicality, making the difficult conversations about love much easier, and ends with Adoration, praise and worship, and an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, transforming the night into a mini-retreat for the whole family.
Get answers to life’s tough questions about love, dating, and relationships from internationally acclaimed speaker Jason Evert and leave with a healthy sense of self-worth and the ability, if needed, to start again.

Schoenstatt Girls’ Group
At Holy Trinity, we believe that our students deserve every opportunity to explore and deepen their faith life. Through the most generous gift of their time and efforts, the Schoenstatt Girls’ Youth and the youth sister from the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary are able to provide this opportunity to our girls by offering them the ability to participate in Schoenstatt Girls’ Youth Groups right here at Holy Trinity.
Schoenstatt is an apostolic movement within the Catholic Church, which fosters spiritual renewal, with our Blessed Mother as a very special guide and role model. Who better to emulate as a Christian than the woman that our Lord chose to be His mother? Just as Mary brought Christ to the world, we as Christians want to bring Christ to others!
Schoenstatt is one of a number of Catholic lay movements that were founded in the 20th century, perhaps as a supernatural response to a world that was becoming increasingly secular and devoid of spirituality. Schoenstatt collaborates with other lay movements in evangelizing the world of today through the renewal of our faith commitment in daily life.

Youth Mission Trip
Holy Trinity Mission Trip
Since the summer of 2000, Holy Trinity has offered a high school youth mission trip each summer for students in grades 9-12. Youth from Holy Trinity Parish and School are welcome and encouraged to join in this wonderful opportunity!
HT partners with Youthworks, Inc. to provide a Christ centered mission trip for our teenage youth. We want teenagers to understand who God is, how God sees them, and how God may use them to impact our world. We know mission trip experiences can be a powerful discipleship tool for our youth ministry. We believe that God is at work in the life of every teenager, even in ways that we can’t see, and our responsibility is to help create an environment where the Holy Spirit can continue that work!
The trips take place in a variety of places across the US. During the weeklong trip the teens have a chance to work with other church/youth groups and provide a variety of service projects to the communities we serve in-like running a day camp for kids, painting homes, doing yard work and small improvement projects, visiting elderly, working at soup kitchens, and much more. Not only is the mission trip about our service to others but also incorporates individual faith growth. Every morning the youth have a devotional time for self-prayer. Each evening after our work is done there is an activity in the community and/or cultural learning opportunities. Every night there is club time which is a time for prayer, scripture, and music, which is followed by time spent with just our group from HT. So you can see it is more than just work~it is a retreat too! You can also find more information on the Youthworks website (www.youthworks.com). These trips have changed the lives of many people over the past 20+ years!

Totus Tuus Summer Youth Program (Grades 1-12)
What is Totus Tuus?
Totus Tuus is a week-long fun, faith filled summer catechetical program dedicated to the youth with the mission to evangelize and teach the faith of the Church.
Totus Tuus is Latin for “Totally Yours” and is the motto for Pope St. John Paul II. The phrase is taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s great work, True Devotion to Mary, and it represents our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through the hands of his Immaculate Mother.
Who will be teaching our youth?
Totus Tuus gathers together missionaries (college students and seminarians from our very own diocese) onto “teams” of four. These teams tour the Diocese throughout the summer, evangelizing and INSPIRING all those they encounter.

The programs are divided into morning sessions for grades 1-6 and evening sessions are for grades 7-12.
