Augustine Jalomo, contemporary music minister of Holy Trinity, says “Navidad Latinoamericana is a celebration of the diversity that exists within our Latino culture. Although some would like to categorize in a very general "Hispanic" or "Latino" stroke, we are from Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, Colombia, etc, each celebrating the birth of Christ in a unique style.  Our parish is proud to be hosting this energetic and culturally diverse event.”
