BIBLE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES Do you read your Bible, but feel unsure about what you've read? Would you like to better understand the readings you hear at Mass on Sunday? Holy Trinity has ongoing opportunities for you to study Scripture and find ways to enhance and strengthen your faith through the Bible. A LECTIONARY STUDY meets every Tuesday at 9:30 am in the Parish Center. This group reflects on the readings for the upcoming Sunday and discusses how the readings impact our lives. The SUNDAY BIBLE STUDY group reads and discusses the books of the Bible, also discussing ways in which the historical, cultural, social and religious aspects of each book impact our lives. ALL ARE WELCOME to join us at any time. For more information, contact Kay Fleetwood at or 282-3270.

Dear Friends, Wow, this has been a busy summer. I keep telling people “it will get back to normal next week” and I keep waiting for next week! I’m amazed by the amount of activity and life in the parish— from teens traveling the country as they learn more about their Catholic faith and identity in Christ, to praying together as a family during difficult times, to wedding after wedding and Bible Studies and young adult groups that are faithful and growing. And an impromptu visit by Bishop DiLorenzo never hurts either. So, will it quiet down, you ask? It doesn't seem to be on the radar at all. Here are a list of some things coming soon: - The Catholicism Project will start after Labor Day and will hopefully be offered four or five different times during the week. This 10-week series is going to amaze you. I’ve seen the preview and I am confident it will be a hit. - The new translation of the Roman Missal, 3rd edition. Expect a couple of homilies/talks at Mass as well as some additional classes to better understand the beauty of the changes the Church has asked of American Catholics. - EDGE Middle School ministry is getting “ramped up” with evening sessions to allow more time for our teens at this particularly vulnerable age. - A welcome supper for new (or registering) parishioners to get to know each other and be welcomed formally to the parish. - The parish Annual Report will be distributed and discussed (briefly) at Masses in September so you are aware how the parish is using our gifts and where we stand fiscally. - The Bishop’s Annual Appeal will be announced in early October and Holy Trinity will be invited to step up to the plate once again. As you can see, there’s a lot. Don’t miss out on the action, let us know how you’d like to get involved! Father Dan

SUMMER SCHEDULE Wednesday Night August 24th 6:30pm till 9:00pm


We are now collecting new school supplies. Any donations can be brought to the Pastoral Center during office hours or in the back of church in the room next to the Saint Joseph statue.. These items are very much appreciated.

We will continue our 7 Deadly Sins/7 Lively Virtues series with Avarice/Generosity. Life Teen Registration for teens in 9th-12th grade will begin this week. Forms are available in the back of the Church after Mass. The Life Teen Fall Kickoff is on Sunday, October 16th at Holy Trinity.


Please plan your fall calendars to be able to attend a new program offered at Holy Trinity called “The Catholicism Project�. Fr. Robert Barron created this groundbreaking program as a thematic presentation of what Catholics believe and why, so all adults can come to a deeper understanding of the Catholic Faith. This engaging and interesting formational program uses the art, architecture, literature, music and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition to illuminate the timeless teachings of the Church. The program was developed over 4 years, with filming around the world at various Catholic sites and shrines. The program is of tremendous quality and will be a great opportunity for lifelong Catholics or new Catholics alike. The series is a 10 week study, scheduled to begin in several timeslots at Holy Trinity and at neighboring parishes in the Tidewater area. It is scheduled to begin the week of September 11th and specific times will be announced next week.
