Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM) is a period for the duration of month of May for recognizing the contributions and influence of Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. During APAHM, communities celebrate the achievements and contributions of Asian and Pacific Americans with community festivals, government-sponsored activities, and educational activities for students. 

Some notable Asian/Pacific Americans are listed below.
1.  Allan Feliciano. Allan is of Pacific Islander descent. He is a Trinity parishioner who served his country honorably as a U.S. Navy Commander until retiring several years ago and then continuing his career with a Navy contractor. Allan and his wife, Holly, reside in Stafford County along with their two children, Collin and Ellen.

2.  U.S. Representative Marilyn Strickland. Congressman Strickland proudly represents Washington State’s 10th Congressional District. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Strickland is the first African-American to represent Washington State at the federal level and the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress in its 230-year history.

Amirah Ahmed, of Fredericksburg Muslim Youth, the local Muslim youth group, is looking to begin a Youth Interfaith Committee for the Fredericksburg faith community that will allow youth from all faiths to grow an interfaith community to facilitate important discussions for unity. Panel events, monthly meetings, and programs will be held virtually until it is safe to meet in person. The goal is to uplift youth of faith and to help youth better understand their differences and similarities. Parents, if your youth is interested in being Trinity’s representative to the Youth Interfaith Committee, please have them contact Sam Burton at sburton@rinity-fredericksburg.org for an application. A representative and an alternate will be chosen from those Trinity youth who apply.
