June 2018 Letter to Families here
At Holy Trinity we value the smallest of children as vital and important members of the Kingdom of God. Our ministries to children and their families reflect our deep commitment to them and their spiritual formation.
Sunday Children's Chapel
We are pleased to offer Children's Chapel during the sermon on Sundays. Children start the morning in the worship service with their family, then they are invited to go to Children’s Chapel. The children return to re-join their families for Holy Communion.

SPECIAL GATHERINGS and the ATRIUM
This year (2017-2018) we are not able to offer our weekly atrium with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, but we do have several special gatherings and celebrations planned for children and families throughout the year, some of which will take place in the atrium. We are prayerfully reading, training and preparing to re-open weekly atrium in Fall 2018.
Please join us at the Parish Center (9555 US Hwy 15-501 N., Chapel Hill, 27517)
December 7, Thursday 4:00pm - atrium open for Advent lessons
January 6, Saturday 10:00am - Epiphany celebration
April 14, Saturday, 10:00am - Liturgy of the Light celebration
Saturday, May 19 10:00am - Pentecost celebration and atrium open house
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an approach to the religious formation of children that is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. The atrium is the room that is prepared for the children. It is not a classroom. Instead it is a place of religious experience, community, and worship. Everything in this room is intended to be appropriate to the ages and sizes of children who gather there. The furniture is child-sized to foster moving about freely, working comfortably, using and moving objects. The materials aid the children in their understanding of the teachings of Jesus, worshiping God, and the essential tenets of our faith.
