Sign-up to have Holy Trinity's Ambassadors of Mary bring the Pilgrim Virgin Mary (PVM) to your home for one week! Drop-off of the PVM is on a Saturday at ~2:30; the following Saturday, the Ambassadors of Mary will pick-up the PVM and take her to the next Holy Trinity parishioner's home. Pick-up starts at ~1:30pm.
Both drop-off and pick-up lasts about 30 minutes and will include reciting the rosary. Friends and family are invited to participate in this devotion to the Blessed Mother. The primary purpose of the home family visitation program is to bring families closer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for help in responding to the requests made by Mary during her apparitions at Fatima. The essence of Mary's requests is threefold: Return to God; Make reparation for sin; Pray the Rosary for Peace.
Contact: Dean Zezeus, (571) 359-7385; or to sign-up for a PVM visit go to sign-up genius and pick a date!
American Heritage Girls began its first year of programming in the fall of 1995 with about 10 troops and roughly 100 members. Most of the troops met in the West Chester area and worked on badges written by the founding parents. Organizational events were started that year which assisted the organization in tying city-wide troops together.
American Heritage Girls is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. The organization offers badge programs, service projects, girl leadership opportunities and outdoor experiences to its members.
This program of character building has successfully served thousands of girls since its inception and will continue to do so long into the 21st century. The founders of the American Heritage Girls and the volunteers of today give all credit for the success of AHG to God for His constant hand upon the organization and His unceasing blessings. At Holy Trinity American Heritage Girls meet on Thursday afternoons. We have several units serving girls of various ages.

With this in mind a program was introduced for adults to support the best manner of behavior for the Safety and Protection of Children. The policies of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington and we at Holy Trinity parish are committed to and have provided a Child and Safety and Protection program which include VIRTUS training and background authorization checks on all clergy, employees, and volunteers who have substantial contact with children in our parish.
We believe when you entrust Holy Trinity Catholic church with the well being of your children we strive to provide a caring, educating, and safe environment for those we are committed to serve and protect - our children.
Individuals who have not yet completed the background check and VIRTUS training process are welcome to request a complete background packet at the parish offices, or ask your ministry director/coordinator.
Visit VIRTUS Online for training session information and registration (see your Virtus background packet for instructions).

Our Mission: The mission of WAY is to promote the spiritual well being of children and youth and to provide spiritual formation and moral support for women who are called to work in a variety of ministries dedicated to this end, whether as mothers, teachers and catechists, youth ministers, social workers or as relatives, godparents and friends. W.A.Y. recognizes that such women have their own particular spiritual needs and therefore seek to foster a helpful pattern of personal and communal spiritual practice as well as a philosophy of Christian formation that will be especially helpful in work with children and youth.
Our Meetings: We meet two Wednesdays a month at Holy Trinity, no commitment necessary.
