Congratulations to all our great volunteers at Christ’s House and Capital Area Food Bank!
Thanks to our fearless leader Laetitia Sangwa and the Christ’s House crew and Capital Area Food Bank regulars, Trinity students showed up faithfully and in full force each Tuesday and Friday. Capital Area Food Bank greets Trinity students each Friday with a jubilant “Trinity’s here!” and Christ’s House gave them tee-shirts and invitations to a wonderful banquet! The volunteer coordinator Mr. Dave Long gave them high marks for their cooking and socializing skills!
Congratulations to our great Gospel Choir!
Your three concerts this year, plus the inspiring music at Maurice “Mo” Drake’s memorial service, have lifted up our spirits in song! Thank you, Mr. Cromwell, for your many gifts and dedication to the choir! Thank you, choir members, for your hard work and talent!
Many thanks also to our Spiritual Advisory Board:
Angalise Brinkley, Demane Butler, Iscela Carballo, Chalynn Johnson, and Beatriz Mora for their leadership this spring semester. Beatriz and Iscela, your Monday Meditations were a true asset in this month of stress!
Much appreciation and gratitude to our Wednesday noon interfaith group—students, faculty, and staff!
Our thanks to the many speakers who shared their faith with us, from Pentecostal to Muslim to Catholic to Interdenominational. Thanks also to the peace and justice speakers: the Nuns on the Bus and the creators of Peace Circles. Although participants changed as schedules altered, the support, prayers, and sharing of our faith kept us strong throughout the semesters.
Congratulations to the new Catholics!
Diana Asenjo-Cely, Alecia Duncan-Thomas, Alesa Hashimzada, and Ima Simmons joined the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. Thank you, Dr. San Juan, for your enlightened instruction and spiritual guidance!
For all those who participated in our services, Masses, and who set up displays, worked at service fairs, and for the faculty who partnered with Campus Ministry for community service, THANK YOU!
To the Campus Ministry interns, Laetitia Sangwa and Demane Butler, thanks for your amazing support!
Our mission advances the spiritual values of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, founders of Trinity, who believe that education and spirituality transform lives. We strive to model diversity, interdependence, solidarity, and inclusiveness, reaching across racial, ethnic, and religious lines.
Interfaith Prayer & Worship
We offer interfaith services and Catholic Masses. Through prayerful reflection, we find the strength to sustain ourselves on our human and spiritual journey (St. Julie Billiart, co-founder of the Sisters of Notre Dame du Namur). Within the Trinity community we seek to deepen our relationship with God and with the human family.
Community Service & Social Justice
Cultivating compassionate and generous hearts and serving those most in need, the Trinity community works to grasp the systemic structures of injustice through personal and communal responses. We respond to issues in our society and the international community.
Service work that addresses systemic structures of injustice is available to students through both short-term and long-term projects.
