Holy Trinity Parish is pleased to welcome fellow parishioner, David Lopez, as the parish's Director of Parish Life and Evangelization.
David supports the priests, the Holy Trinity staff, and fellow parishioners in promoting stewardship as a way of life at our parish. He works to ensure that all offerings of time (in worship), talent (in ministry) and treasure (financial support of the parish to build God's Kingdom) are effectively recruited and managed by proactively organizing, staffing, and managing our stewardship outreach.
"When we came to Holy Trinity in July of 2003 and attended our first Mass, we knew that Holy Trinity was a special community of faith," said David. "Unlike any other church we had attended, we immediately felt welcome. On that Wednesday morning nearly two years ago when I first came for Mass, as she handed me a hymnal, parishioner Monica Getchel greeted me with a big 'Hello' and 'Welcome to Holy Trinity!' In the true spirit of stewardship, Monica embodied the hospitality that made us instantly feel a part of this vibrant community."
Additionally, David serves as administrator of the parish and oversees all parish ministries. "My role is to help our staff and our parish stewards be the best ambassadors for Christ that they can be," David said.
David's job focuses on helping parishioners make the best use of the gifts with which God has blessed them. "Getting people involved and committed is what's key," said David. "People want to be asked, and people want to feel like the contributions they are making are important and appreciated."
David and Kathy have three grown sons, Nick, Andrew and Greg. They live in Carmichael, right down the street from Jesuit High School. He is a graduate of Stanford University with a double major in communication and political science and previously worked in government at the state and federal levels.
