Special Dates to Keep in Mind
This page has been prepared to aid you in your yearly planning. We all have many commitments on our time. My prayer for us is that the Church’s calendar, and the parish’s special events, will bring us together “as Church” even more visibly and further strengthen our community. Please contact me with any questions; the latest information will always be available on our web site, holy-trinity.org. This draft is current as of January 17, 2018. Please especially note information on the center of our 150th celebration on October 20, below.
