In the Catholic Church a confraternity is an association of lay people dedicated to faith and good works. The Church invites lay people to form confraternities.
The Confraternity of the Holy Trinity Through Jesus and Mary is devoted to the Holy Trinity. We go to God the way He came to us. The Father sent his Son to take on “the form of a slave” through Mary. Like the three kings, we find Jesus with His mother. From the Cross He gave His mother to us by saying, “Behold thy Mother.” She says to us what she said at Cana, “Do whatever He tells you.”
The one God always was a Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In the fullness of time God the Son became human through Mary. He entered time and united His eternal divine nature to our human nature. The name of this God-Man is Jesus. He sends His Holy Spirit to help us.
Our goal as a confraternity is to bring the spirituality of monks and nuns into the lives of lay people. We choose prayers on this website that help us to do our daily duty. God helps us to take care of our jobs and families while offering those works and prayers to the Trinity in union with Jesus and Mary.
Jesus invites you to take up your cross of duty and suffering, and join your prayers and sacrifices with His sacrifice to help others.
This website is a way to join with the Confraternity of the Holy Trinity Through Jesus and Mary. You become a member by your decision to join us in praying for each other daily, in this life and the next.

Our Lady asked St. Dominic to preach the rosary to save sinners. She gave him 15 mysteries of her Son’s life. Pope St. John Paul II suggested that we add 5 more events from the life of Christ, known as the Luminous Mysteries. He left it up to “the freedom of individuals.” Many Catholics meditate on 5 of Our Lady’s mysteries every day, and add an additional 5 of the pope’s mysteries on Thursdays.
