The Family Life Development Program at Trinita is cancelled this Summer out of concern for everyone’s health and safety. This is the first time in the program’s 48-year history that it is cancelled. Though we are deeply disappointed, we are also finding ways to send some special Trinita energy to our Trinita families and volunteers this summer. Presenting: Trinita@Home! Nightly during July 13-17, there will be a special livestream featuring many Trinita activities. Stay tuned.
The Missionary Cenacle Volunteers that had previously completely the application process and were confirmed to serve in Summer 2020 will be deferred to the Summer 2021 program.
Trinita’s Summer program 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 assist with every aspect of this summer mission.
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.”
