The Holy Trinity Parish Scholarship is awarded to active parishioners of Holy Trinity Catholic Church who are high school seniors at the time of application and who have served the parish in various capacities, such as Altar Server, Choir Member, Religious Education Teacher or Aide, Greeter, Usher, Eucharistic Minister, Lector, or who have assisted the parish with other activities. The award is also based on the submission of an essay explaining what their Catholic faith means to them, how it has helped them in their life, how they experience God’s love in everyday life, and how they plan to give back to God and to their community.
Every 8:30 a.m. Sunday Mass at Holy Trinity is broadcast on the radio at WDOE 1410AM and 94.9 FM.
