WELCOME TO OUR PARISH !! 


We value your presence, as we are not solitary wayfarers on our journey to God.  Rather we see Christ in one another and we value our relationship with one another in our parish and throughout the world for we are brothers and sisters in Christ.  


We value our union with our Holy Father, the Pope, which guarantees our union with one another in the Catholic Church today, and with our fellow believers of every age.  We see the Catholic Church, founded and sustained by Christ, as “the Reign of Christ already present in mystery.”            (Catechism #763)


We invite you to become a part of our parish family.  


May the Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit bless you!

THE SOLEMN SEASON OF LENT

On Ash Wednesday, March 1, we begin the Solemn Season of Lent. Our Lenten Journey is a time when we take a serious look at our faith life and determine how we might grow stronger in faith and more aware of the presence of Jesus within ourselves and others. Lent is a forty-day liturgical season that initiates the most sacred part of the Christian year. 

Lent is a time of conversion, a turning back to God, the Church and the Sacraments. A time of grace, given to all of us once again by Almighty God. In the words from the Prophet Joel in the reading for the Ash Wednesday Liturgy, “This is the acceptable time, this is the time of salvation”. This is the acceptable time to think seriously of where does God fit into my life, if He fits at all? A time of renewing our faith commitment and receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation (confession).

As we begin this Solemn Lenten Journey, we invite you to join us as we walk through the days of Lent, Holy Week and celebrate Christ’s Resurrection on Easter.

LENTEN REGULATIONS FOR 2017

  • ASH WEDNESDAY, March 1st and GOOD FRIDAY, April 14th:  These are days of Fast AND Abstinence.
  • DAYS OF FAST—There is a limit of one full meal on these days for all between the ages of 18 and 59 inclusive, for those who are not ill.
  • DAYS OF ABSTINENCE – All the Fridays of Lent. All who have reached their 14th year are bound to abstain totally from meat on the Fridays of Lent.
  • EASTER DUTY OBLIGATION – For those who have received their First Holy Communion, Catholics are bound by the obligation of receiving Holy Communion at least once a year. This precept should be fulfilled during the Easter Season. Catholics are also bound to confess serious (mortal) sins at least once a year, but this is not limited to the Lenten/Easter Season.

"God's mercy can make even the driest land become a garden, can restore life to dry bones (cf. Ez 37:1-14). ... Let us be renewed by God's mercy, let us be loved by Jesus, let us enable the power of his love to transform our lives too; and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish."
 

Message from Father Walsh
The Solemnity of Mary, Holy Mother of God - Sunday, January 01, 2017

       I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who remembered me this Christmas with a gift or a special prayer. I would also like to thank everyone who gave a Christmas gift to the parish. In addition, I am very grateful to all of you who support our parish on a weekly basis and to those of you who have donated to the parish capital campaign, “Preserving our Church for Future Generations.” In addition to your financial support, I would also like to thank all of you who give of your time and talent, volunteering for the parish bazaar or for one of the parish committees. Above all, I would like to thank Almighty God for the gift of our parish, our Catholic Church and our faith in Jesus Christ. May 2017 be filled with even more of God’s graces and blessings for each member of our parish family

We will have a Lenten retreat, entitled “Awaken Our Hearts” March 4th-8th, conducted by Faith on Fire Missions.  I am looking for interested parishioners to help me host this  retreat.  There are scores of details that will have to be attended to in order to have a successful mission.  If you are able to help me, I invite you to a retreat committee meeting to be held December 6th, this Tuesday, at 7:00p.m., in the Father Gene Room.  Come and find out how you can help us.

 

 
1st Sunday of Advent - Sunday, November 27, 2016

Every October, parishes in the Archdiocese of Hartford count the number of people who attend Mass and receive Holy Communion at the Sunday (and Saturday vigil) Masses.  This past October, the average number of people who   attended Mass at Most Holy Trinity on the weekend was 1507.  This is a decrease of 118 people, or 7 % from 2015.  The decrease was even more marked for the English Masses, from 1160 to 1015, or 13%.  This year was the second year in a row that we have seen a reduction in the Mass  attendance.

The only Mass that saw an increase was the 12:00 Spanish Mass which increased from 465 to 492 or 6%.  The 4:00p.m. Mass decreased from 308 to 272, or 12%.  The 7:30a.m. Mass saw the biggest drop in terms of percentage (16%), from 196 to 165.  The attendance at the 9:00a.m. Mass went from 301 to 269, decreasing by 11%.  Finally, the 10:30a.m. Mass also decreased from 353 to 308, or 13%.

 

 
Christ the King - Sunday, November 20, 2016

I would like to thank everyone who attended our Oktoberfest Dinner on October 22nd.   I especially would like to thank Michael Guidone for cooking the meal, John and Jo-Ann Arcangelo for providing the wine and bear, and Denis Bonito for providing the musical entertainment for the evening, as well as all the volunteers who provided the desserts and sold tickets, set up, served the meal, and cleaned up afterwards.

We made $1,450 in advanced ticket sales and donations, another $420 was realized from tickets sold at the door, and $230 was made from the 50/50 raffle, giving us a total income of $2,100.  The food cost $946.08, leaving us a total profit of $1,153.92.
