NEWARK, NJ -- Two Holy Trinity School Girl Scout Troops were honored at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark during the 2016 Archdiocesan Girl Scout Awards ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 28. 

Troop 40849, first grade Daisy troop, earned the Mother of God Award. This award is recognition that the Catholic Church, through the Newark Archdiocesan CYO Youth and Young Adult Ministries Office, gives to young girls for their participation in a spiritual program.  The program focuses on helping girls become more aware of God’s presence in their daily lives, especially within their homes and communities.

Troop 40713, third grade Brownie troop, received the Family of God Award. This award is given to those girls who participate in a series developed to complement both the catechetical efforts of the parish and families with children in second and third grades. The program focuses on helping children learn about themselves and about God’s love for them, their families, and the world.
