Trinity Sunday

Trinity Sunday, celebrated after Pentecost, honors a fundamental belief in Catholicism: the Holy Trinity, where God exists as three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This day underscores our inclusion in God's family and His desire for universal unity in love. It's an invitation to embrace God's truth and reflect on the communal nature of the Trinity, seen as Lover, Beloved, and Love. This celebration offers youth ministers, catechists, and parents opportunities to explore and teach this central doctrine, fostering a deeper understanding of God's triune nature and its significance in our faith and community.
