Healing Mass: On Wednesday, May 25th at 7pm Fr. Ben St. Croix will celebrate a special healing Mass here at Holy Trinity. Please come and praise God with us and receive the graces and healing God wants to give you. Prayer teams will be available after Mass.
Seeking Smiles: Being welcoming is important for the life of our Parish. We have started to welcome back new and old parishioners alike and are now looking for people to welcome with a smile all those who come to celebrate with us on the weekends. We are seeking people with gifts of warmth, kindness and support to join this ministry. The job is to welcome everyone who walks through our door with a non-judgemental smiling face- yes, even smile with your mask! If you are able to arrive 30 minutes before Mass time and smile and wave- we need you! Please reach out to Kate Pinto through the parish office if this is something you can help us with!
Priest Updates: On the final weekend of May (the 28th/29th) we will celebrate the Feast of the Ascension and it will be Fr. Ben St. Croix’s final weekend serving here. There will be a small reception in the church foyer following the Masses that weekend. It’s been wonderful to have Fr. Ben here with us and we will keep him in our prayers as he returns to his ministry with the Companions of the Cross in Ontario. Fr. Bryan is returning to the parish on June 1st and will resume his role as pastor just before the Feast of Pentecost (June 5th).
