June 2019 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.

RESUMING FALL 2018!
Atrium open house / orientation for parents, Thursday, September 6, at 4pm at the Parish Center.
Atrium time for children begins weekly on September 13 (Thursdays 4-5:30pm at the Parish Center)
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.

For more information or questions about registering for our atrium, please contact Children's Catechist Lisa McCowen.
HEALTH & SAFETY OF OUR CHILDREN
In addition to our deep commitment to the spiritual formation of children, we are committed to their safety. We require all adults working with children and youth up to age 18 to undergo a background check, submit references, attend a safety and sexual abuse prevention training every 2 years. You can find our Policy for Supervised Individuals and Registered Sex Offenders here, and we require any such persons to self-report with this form.
We also value the health of our children. You can read our Children’s Health & Safety Policy here.
