Welcome to Holy Trinity Catholic Church!

On behalf of our priests and entire parish family, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family. Holy Trinity serves the communities of Bristow, Gainesville, Haymarket and Nokesville. We have a strong religious education program for children and adults, social outreach program, Mom’s group, Men’s groups, family and youth activities.

Catholic new to the area?
If you are Catholic and new to the area, we invite you to register with the parish so we may serve you more effectively. I.e. if you need to obtain a sponsor certificate to be a godparent you need to have been registered in the parish for three months prior. The registration form is online, in the back of the Narthex or at the parish office.
Inactive Catholic?
If you are an inactive Catholic, we invite you to come back home. We welcome you to rediscover this beautiful Faith that Jesus Christ founded on Peter and his Apostles. May you experience Our Personal Lord’s love, mercy, peace and joy!
Married outside the church?
If you have been married outside the Church, our priests and deacons are more than willing to help you receive the Sacrament of Matrimony,  an important step to receiving the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Eucharist!
Not Catholic?
If you are not Catholic and would like to explore the Catholic Faith, please feel free to contact us online or call the parish office at (703) 753-6700!
