Annual Links of Friendship Program

One of our yearly Christmas Traditions at Holy Trinity is to provide a gift for those who are less fortunate than we are.  In that spirit, we distribute request cards for those that live in Cumberland County and for Boys & Girls Haven.  The request cards are available in the cafeteria this weekend. The process is pretty simple, pick a card, shop, wrap and return to Church. Once again we are asking you to be generous for those less fortunate, keeping in mind that these are " wish list " items, not a mandatory purchase. Wrapped presents with the card attached can be returned beginning the weekend of November 21st. All presents must be in no later than December 5th, so they can be delivered in a timely fashion. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Letter From John

Parishioners & Youth of Holy Trinity,

I will be stepping down as youth minister at Holy Trinity at the end of January.  I wish to announce now, in order to give Holy Trinity sufficient time to find my replacement prior to my departure.

My wife, Natalie, and I are both originally from Northern Kentucky, where our families currently reside, and we want to have greater flexibility to visit with them, as we hope to begin a family over the next few years.  I’ll be seeking a position using my background in Mechanical Engineering; which will, God willing, be able to provide us with the means to do so.

Holy Trinity has been wonderful to Natalie and me.  The staff, parishioners and youth whom I’ve worked with have treated us like family; we are so very grateful.  I’m forever grateful to the countless parents and adult volunteers who’ve made youth ministry what it is today by helping with the various programs and events. 

To the youth of the parish, I have been blessed to work with each and every one of you.  Your vibrant energy, genuine faith, and willingness to be the voice of youth within the parish inspire me in my own faith.  I look forward to spending these final months with all of you as we continue to build up a community of faith within youth ministry and the parish of Holy Trinity. I have no doubt with our wonderful youth, leadership and volunteers, youth ministry at Holy Trinity will continue to be the vibrant ministry it has always been!

Year of Mercy

Year of Mercy

In Rome, on December 8th, Pope Francis will inaugurate the Year of Mercy by opening the Holy Door at St. Peter Basilica. Here at Holy Trinity we are establishing a holy door, as well. Our door will be the central doors of the portico entrance of the main parking lot. These doors will be sealed after the Masses on December 6. We will then inaugurate the Year of Mercy by blessing and processing through these doors at Masses on the weekend of December 12/13.

Holy doors have been used in the Church since the 15th century as a symbol and ritual expression of our conversion in and through Jesus Christ. Individuals are invited to pass through the door in order to leave the past behind and cross the threshold from sin to grace, from darkness to light. It is especially appropriate for holy doors to be located within a church, since the church is our spiritual home and the place where the sacraments and so many other sacred moments in life take place.
