Traveling Crucifix resuming

On Independence Day 2021

Holy Trinity will begin resuming the Travelling Crucifix

      It is no secret that we are losing priests at a pace much faster than newly ordained men are entering the priesthood.  It seems the devil is winning the battle.

Our PRAYER is needed NOW.

Prayers supporting the increase of vocation of men who are discerning a call to the priesthood in service to our Lord.  Please consider inviting Christ into your home for at least one weekend this year to pray for vocations with your whole  family.

Have You Been an “Inactive” Catholic?

 

 

 

~ Statistically, not an insignificant number of you who attend (in-person or live-stream) our Easter Mass celebrations are “inactive” Catholics.  I earnestly appeal to you with four messages: thank you for joining us at Mass, where we strive to give fitting thanksgiving to Jesus Christ, the Lord of the Universe, for rising from the tomb after His agonizing suffering and death for our sins; please seriously consider going to the sacrament of Confession (offered seven times/week between our two parishes . . . or by appointment with me or any Catholic priest) and also returning to Holy Mass every Sunday and Holy Day for you to return/remain to a “state of grace” and know the joy and peace that the world cannot give, but that Jesus can . . . and does; we are an incomplete community of believers in Jesus Christ whenever you are not with us; and, we pray for you every single weekend!

St Michael the Archangel,

defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and the snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host; by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits, who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen. 

Thank you for your support!

Many of our financial commitments--for example, payroll, utilities, regular maintenance and upkeep-continued throughout the COVID 19 pandemic, and we are grateful for your support in such a difficult time. In order to keep our parishes operational now, and to preserve their long-term viability, please continue your thoughtful and generous financial support to the best of your capabilities. Your support helps to coordinate, organize, and schedule time, people and resources in an effort to offer a variety of programs and services that not only educate, inform and enhance, but bring Spiritual fulfillment and unity with our parishioners through the Mass, Ministries, classes, studies and various events. This can only be accomplished by you offering your financial support of the mission of the Church as one of it's Precepts.
