Interested in Becoming Catholic?
Family Faith Formation
Family Faith Formation is designed to support you, the parents, in your God-given role as the primary educator of your children. This is your right and privilege:
The mission of Family Faith Formation at Holy Trinity Catholic Church is to model our families after the Holy Family, thus creating a Christ-centered home. We honor the parents’ God-given role of raising their children in the Faith and empower them to fulfill this holy privilege and responsibility so that one day we may all partake in the Beatific Vision of the Blessed Trinity.
“The ministry of evangelization carried out by Christian parents is original and irreplaceable… The future of humanity passes by way of the family.”
–Saint John Paul II
Youth & Young Adult Ministry
Holy Trinity Youth Ministries (HTYM) provides a variety of opportunities for middle and high school aged young people to better know, trust, love, and serve our Lord, through regular encounter with Jesus Christ in one another, their parish community, their Church, a vibrant prayer life, those they are called to serve, and particularly the Eucharist.
The Holy Trinity Young Adults (HTYA) have several ministries centered on serving the spiritual, social, and formation needs of young adults, providing opportunities for building community through fellowship, prayer, service, and Christ-centered conversation.

Resources for Growing Your Faith
Safety and Protection of Children Policy and Training
The word VIRTUS derives from Latin and means valor, moral strength, excellence, and worth. In ancient times, virtus denoted a way of life and manner of behavior that always aspired to the highest most positive attributes of human interaction.
With this in mind a program was introduced for adults to support the best manner of behavior for the Safety and Protection of Children by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington’s Office for the Protection of Children and Young People (OPCYP). 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 desire to volunteer with young people, and have not yet completed the background check and VIRTUS training process, are welcomed to request a complete background packet at the parish offices.
Visit VIRTUS Online for training session information and registration (see your Virtus background packet for instructions).
You can also find more information and resources at the diocesan site, here: arlingtondiocese.org/child-protection/
For more information on becoming OPCYP compliant for Holy Trinity – both background-checked and completing the VIRTUS course – please contact Annette by calling 703-753-6700, or by completing the form.
