We have a great opportunity for volunteer mission service this Summer! The Family Life Development Program at Trinita serves inner-city families who come for a week-long stay on our beautiful grounds to participate in a program designed to strengthen faith and family life. Each week of the 5 week program is structured with faith, fun and family activities. The community at Trinita is very diverse, and many of the family members are bilingual, speaking Spanish and English. A generous and fun group of volunteers is needed to assist with every aspect of this summer mission.
We are seeking applicants who are 18 years or older; men and women, young and old, single or married to serve at this life-giving, rural mission. There is an Orientation Week for new volunteers beginning June 21, 2020. Family groups begin arriving Sunday, June 28 and follow for 5 consecutive weeks, ending August 1. New volunteers must participate in the Orientation Week, and as part of the application process, potential volunteers can choose the number of weeks they are available to serve our families. Some volunteers spend only one week with the families, some three weeks, others the whole Summer. So, new volunteers could serve anywhere between a total of 2-6 weeks, as they choose.
Here’s what our Volunteers say about their service at Trinita…
“I constantly challenged myself and I realized I have more in me than I thought. I also learned a lot about the Holy Spirit and have come closer to discovering my vocation. The presence of God in relationships was always evident. Whether it was in fostering a new one, strengthening an existing one, or repairing a broken one, the Holy Spirit was always at work within the relationships among the people at Trinita.”
“I could not have imagined a place so refreshing, yet so full of history and tradition, so structured yet carefree, and so busy yet so peaceful. It was this beauty that set me at ease the moment I arrived.”
“My experience at Trinita was amazing. The Trinita staff and my fellow volunteers were models of love, patience, respect, and cooperation. They quickly became a family for me and they taught me how to best serve, be with, and learn from the families each weeks.”
