Ways to Promote a Safe Environment for Worship at Holy Trinity
The following is a list of things that will be the norm until the pandemic is over.
*Mass will be celebrated in our Gymnasium. Doors open 30 minutes before each Mass.
*There is limited seating, for proper ‘Social Distancing”.
*Bishop Larry has suspended the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. However, it would be nice if everyone who wanted to attend Mass could go once a week. Since we have limited seating choose one of the Masses listed below to attend. You don't need to reserve a seat for a weekday Mass.
* You will need to either go on our Website or call the Parish Office at 396-0551 to reserve a seat. This is necessary so that we can provide seating for everyone at any given Mass. Our Gym holds more people, with the 6-foot distancing requirement, then our church building. You can reserve single seats, or family seating which is two seats together, for up to 8 people in your group.
NO SEATS CAN BE MOVED. This is on the ‘Honor System” so only reserve what you need.
*Everyone must wear a mask...bring your own, and your hands will be sanitized at the door. Both are necessary to attend Mass.
*Everyone will remain seated during the entire Mass.
*No Restrooms will be available.
*There will be no choir or singing….to lessen airborne particles.
*All parish information is on the Website…there is no printed Bulletin.
*Communion will be brought to you at your seat. Remain seated for receiving Communion.
*Once Mass is finished, everyone will be directed to the exit, where Ushers will cheerfully accept your Collection donations. Please, no congregating, go straight to your car, and exit the property. Church will be sanitized between Masses.
NOTE: If you are not feeling well, please do not come to church. I understand, God surely understands, and that’s why Bishop Larry has suspended the ‘Obligation’ requirement. Please be safe and know that if you are here or remain home, that you are always remembered in our prayers.
MASS SCHEDULE (Starting May 30)
Sundays: 8:00 am and 10:30am

WELCOME TO HOLY TRINITY CATHOLIC CHURCH!
When something is great we should want to be part of it. And, when we discover its greatness, we should want to share it. That’s how I feel about our parish of Holy Trinity...it’s a great place to pray, a wonderful community to celebrate with, and a source of encouragement for everyone. That’s why I want to thank those of you who are part of our vibrant faith community. I also want to to welcome visitors and those who may have been away from us for whatever reason. There’s a place for every one of you in our parish. So, welcome or welcome back!
One way that I personally try to stay connected, with many of you, is through my daily scripture reflections. I use the free media app called: MyParish app, that you can obtain either through Google Play or Apple I-Tunes...and it’s free. I try to share some aspect of the scriptures that we can apply to our everyday lives. Try connecting and you’ll be connected to the Word of God...it’s absolutely free and the only obligation is that you be open to God’s Word touching your life.
If you are new to our parish, or are searching for a great Catholic community, I’d like to encourage you to join us by registering On-line or by filling out a registration form that’s available at the church entrance. Also, please free to contact me directly at 808-396-0551, if there is anything that I might be able to do for you. I look forward to meeting and praying with each of you. Holy Trinity parish is a great meeting place for Catholics who want to live the Gospel, share the joy of knowing Jesus, and desire to join others in proclaiming Gods goodness to others.
“Peace and all good things”
