First 5 – November 15, 2023

Staffing Updates

At Holy Trinity we have embraced the mission that Jesus has entrusted His Church and expressed it as “to make and equip disciples who joyfully go and invite others to Jesus.” In order to pursue this mission, we have developed a process for making disciples called the Discipleship Pathway. Using this pathway, it is our dream that everyone in our parish, those who are here now and those yet to come, can live their discipleship to the fullest; which is why we are excited to announce some staffing changes as we are now able to staff the Evangelize step of the pathway. Kate Pinto will be our Evangelization Coordinator, while also continuing her role as Grow Together Coordinator. The Serve Coordinator position will now be filled by Catherine Kidson as she hands over many of the operational and mission support responsibilities to Stephen McDonald, who is now officially joining our staff. These changes have been carefully considered to enhance our support for all individuals on their journey along the Discipleship Pathway. We look forward to the positive impact they will bring.
