Mary the Mother of God2Parisioners at Holy Trinity walked in procession to the statute of Mary, placed flowers at her feet, and crowned her before mass on May 5, 2019.  A "May Crowning" is a traditional  Catholic ritual that occurs in the month of May.  Catholics have a special devotion to Mary, and we venerate her because she is the Mother of God. By praying to and honoring Mary in a special way, we are led to love her and to imitate her many virtues, especially her total commitment to God's work.

See a short video below of photos from the crowning. 

cornerstoneMissionCleaningSuppliesDisplayHoly Trinity Parish’s own Ms. Brenna, who is working on her Venture Scouts Summit Award, started a project at Holy Trinity to provide cleaning supplies for residents of a local homeless shelter. 

During the month of February 2019, Holy Trinity Parish teamed with St Timothy’s Service Ministry to support Cornerstone’s Embry Rucker Homeless Shelter with cleaning supplies to keep their living spaces and personal items clean. The Embry Rucker Community Shelter (ERCS) is a 70-bed residential shelter in Reston that provides healthy, safe, emergency housing for families and single men and womeconerstonelogon. 

 They are dedicated to helping their clients overcome the circumstances that led to their homelessness, and facilitate their transistion to stable housing.  


Facets Sign CRDuring the month of December 2018, Holy Trinity parishioners collected hats, scarfs, and gloves to donate to needy families in Fairfax County.  The donations were taken to Facets: Opening Doors for People in Need.  Facets is a nonprofit organization that helps parents and their children, and individuals, who suffer the effects of poverty in Fairfax County.  When parishioners dropped off  the items, the staff at Facets were very appreciative and informed them that the items would be distributed that very night.

The Reverend Martha Tolen became the pastor of Holy Trinity Parish on December 2, 2018, taking over for Father Joe Reynolds who retired.  Prior to becoming pastor, Mother Martha served as the associate pastor since 2014.  Mother Martha was originally a parishioner at the St. Charles of Brazil parish in Linthicum, Maryland.  She was ordained to the deaconate in 2012 and to the priesthood in 2013. Before coming to Holy Trinity she served as a priest at St. Charles parish and ran a nursing home ministry. Mother Martha was instrumental in the relocation of Holy Trinity in the summer of 2018 and the parishioners look forward to working with her in the new location and "nesting" with St. Timothy Episcopal church.
