Social Active Adult Ministry
S.A.A.M. is a social group comprised of single or married adult men and women who wish to participate in an evening of fellowship and interact with other 21+ aged adults of any religion, race, or ethnic background from our parish and community. The hope is that attendees will experience the openness of the parish and witness God’s work in action through their fun and faithful fellowship gatherings. These gatherings are in the form of a monthly social Saturday consisting of activities such as music, guest speakers, games, snacks, potluck, and drinks.
People by nature are social beings. With that in mind, S.A.A.M., led by Candy Hertsch and Vicky Sokolowski, was organized to reach out to those over 21-ers in the community and surrounding parishes who may be feeling isolated on a Saturday evening. S.A.A.M. provides a forum where attendees may meet and mingle in an atmosphere that is warm and friendly so that all can engage and participate in conversation over food and drink.
Meeting Dates/Location: Leaders meet at least once a month. Monthly socials take place on the second Saturday of each month in the parish hall.

Councils, Associations and Committees
Mission Statement: The Parish Finance Council assists the pastor in the administration of parish temporal matters. The Finance Council works closely with the pastor, who is accountable to the Archbishop for the administration and stewardship of the temporal goods of the parish. The pastor, according to Canon Law, has among his responsibilities, the responsibility for parish financial and temporal management. The Parish Finance Council is a consultative body that assists the pastor in meeting these obligations. While the Parish Finance Council does not have decision-making authority, consultation is at the heart of the decision-making process – sharing information, listening, contributing to the discussion, and promoting consensus. The Parish Finance Council is about the life of a community of faith and, as such, its members belong to the parish. The pastor may use his discretion in the selection of qualified members from the parish community.

Alfaro, the Finance Council members currently are: Carolina Valdes-Denis, Felix Carrillo, Jose Amaro, Alicia Santibanez, Willie Cueto and Alex Sanchez The group meets once a month in the parish office conference room to discuss all financial matters pertaining to the administration of the temporal matters of Blessed Trinity Church and Blessed Trinity School.

The mission of the Stewardship Committee is to help parishioners realize that all are called upon by God to be good stewards of the gifts He has given us, by placing those gifts at His service through our time, our talent, and our treasure. The desire, as a parish community, to move towards a culture of stewardship is a commitment to creating a vibrant parish life through a more welcoming environment, active ministries, and other activities.
The Stewardship Committee consists of a group of parishioners appointed by the pastor. With Maria Puyada leading, the group meets periodically to discuss, plan, and prepare a timeline leading up to stewardship month.
