Growing In Faith Together
Our Sunday school program is called G.I.F.T. and here at Blessed Trinity, it is thriving! If you are anywhere on the grounds on a Sunday morning, after the 8:45am Mass, you can’t help but notice the flurry of activity.
This year there is a total of 300+ students from k-4 on up through 8th grade registered in these classes. As in the name of the program, we are growing in faith together. At the same time the children are in their classes, adults are invited to a Scripture study class. You need not be a parent of a G.I.F.T. child to attend.
After the English speaking children leave, at 11 o’clock the bilingual students arrive for their class. Also, there are bilingual classes at our mission, Guadalupana, on Tuesday nights, for students preparing to make First Communion and Confirmation.
There is even a class for children that wish to become Catholic. Children of catechetical age (over 8 years old); come learn about the Catholic faith. At Easter Vigil Mass, they receive the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation)
We are so blessed to have forty-three dedicated catechists who give so unselfishly of their time and talents. Week after week these wonderful volunteers come and pass on the faith to these precious children.
For further information please call Jenny Burzotta at 352-629-8092, x3207.
Registration for Classes
Classes are held on Sunday morning. You can register at any time at the church office. If your child is receiving a sacrament, for the first time, you must attach a copy of their baptismal certificate with the registration form.
Vacation Bible School
We are inviting our children to participate in Shipwrecked, Rescued By Jesus: Children learn that Jesus rescues! They will begin to deepen their faith by discovering that Jesus cares about them personally and rescues in life’s toughest circumstances. It will be a week full of fun, incredible music, and a relaxing island-getaway setting that all comes together to point kids to Christ! Shipwrecked, Rescued By Jesus is for kids from kindergarten through 5th grade and will run from June 4th through 7th beginning at 8:30 AM and concluding at noon each day.
If you are interested in volunteering you must be over 18 years of age and have cleared fingerprints on file at Blessed Trinity School/Parish. We would love to have you on board! We are also in need of middle school/high school students to assist. This volunteer opportunity can help fulfill graduation requirements.
