HOPE & JOY Saturdays

The next HOPE & JOY Saturday will December 15 from 11;30 am to 2:00 pm.
Holy Trinity wants to prepare young people to be committed adult Christians. Sunday morning religious education classes meet after Holy Communion, so that families can worship and receive the Eucharist together. The adults of the Sunday School know that healthy, caring relationships form the basis of Christian formation; as such, teachers maintain regular contact with students’ families so that parents can stay informed of what their children are learning and to encourage regular participation.
Sunday School for students pre-school through 12th grade will meet starting September 8 through May 17. To register a student for Sunday School, please download form here. To read more about our Sunday religious education program, please click here.
Paradosi (Greek Language, Dance & Music)
The mission of Paradosi (“Tradition”) is to share the Orthodox Christian faith, celebrate Hellenism, and create meaningful relationships between participants. This award winning program is designed to bring the Orthodox Christian youth together in fellowship for education in six core areas: faith, dance, music, culture, history, and language.
These Tuesday evening gatherings begin with a Greek language class at 5:30 PM and transition to instruction that focuses on the other five areas.
