Dear Parish Family of Holy Trinity,

This week we begin our Vacation Bible School Program with over 400 participants and leaders who are having a fun time while learning important faith lessons. Please keep them in your prayers and enjoy this video of the activities of Day 1.

Thank you to the families who responded to our request for volunteers last week. However, we are still in need of volunteers . Please consider volunteering for Faith Formation Ministry, Children's Liturgy of the Word Ministry, or our Gala Committee.
This past weekend, in the Gospel, we heard the question: Who is my neighbor? The Safe Families for Children Ministry is answering this question as they are two hosting two families who are in need. We hope that you can also respond to this week’s Gospel by taking action and supporting the Safe Families for Children’s request for support listed below.

Holy Trinity is an expression of the love you have for God and His mission to spread the Gospel. Holy Trinity's success relies in your participation and involvement in the forms of Time, Talent and Treasure. We can only be as vibrant as your actual participation and sharing of your gifts. So let’s continue on the road to become the vibrant parish we are meant to be.
 
We look forward to seeing you this weekend!
 
On behalf of Fr. Reynold, Fr. John, Deacon Randy, Deacon Joe and our Staff, have a blessed week!
 
In Christ,
 
Alonso Rosado
Director of Development
STEWARDSHIP OF TIME
Meditation for the Week

Take a few minutes this week to meditate on this coming weekend’s readings.

  • When has God revealed Himself to you?
  • Have you ever noticed God working in your life in a tangible way?
  • While we strive for Salvation, what is it that keeps you from resting in the Lord and contemplating God's Grace? (Are you anxious or worried about many thing?)

STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE
Holy Trinity urgently needs of your financial generosity. Holy Trinity has two areas that require financial support from all our families: Sunday Offering and Capital Campaign.
 
Sunday Offering helps pay for the operation of Holy Trinity (faith formation programs, music program, utilities, pastor and staff salaries, etc.). Our average Sunday offering is $360 per year per family, compared to the average of $600 from surrounding parishes. The yearly average gift per family to break even with Holy Trinity’s expenses is $800 per year.
 
Click here to make a gift to the Sunday Offering and enter your gift amount in the box labeled "Donation". To help cover Holy Trinity's operational expenses, we pray you can help with a gift of $20 - $25 weekly; or $80 - $100 monthly; or $960 - $1,200 annually.
 
Capital Campaign helps pay for the loans that helped us build the church. We still need to raise $4 million to completely payoff our loans.

Click here to make a gift to the Capital Campaign and enter an amount in the "Capital Campaign" box.
 
Thank you and may the Lord bless your generosity one hundredfold!
