The physical body needs nourishment; therefore we eat. The spiritual body needs nourishment too; therefore we pray, we draw closer to God, and we gather as a community to acknowledge Our Almighty Father, his only Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit - the three persons in the one Holy Trinity.
Indeed, in keeping with its name, Most Holy Trinity Church exists to do exactly that - to be a spiritual community for Catholics in Wallingford to come together, to celebrate the Holy Mass, and to support and encourage one another during life's good and bad times.
We - the priests, deacons, lay ministers and staff of the parish - are here to help you draw closer to Jesus. Whether you are a long-time parishioner, or someone newly seeking out a spiritual home, we want you to feel welcome and comfortable.
Particularly during these tough times we are experiencing due to the Coronavirus, please call upon us in any way, by calling the rectory at 203-269-8791 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Know that Father Gutierrez and I continue to say mass for all of you, for all of Wallingford, and for all those affected and suffering.

June 26, 2022:
My brothers and sisters/Mis hermanos,
Well, I have arrived and not a moment to waste with my Spanish Immersion, and what better way to celebrate my 1-year anniversary as a Priest - today - than experiencing a different culture and Eucharistic Spirituality. In celebrating the 13th Sunday Ordinary time, the people of the community held a Corpus Christi Procession … a 4 hour - YES, a 4-HOUR Eucharistic Procession around this particular section of Antigua. Fireworks are going off, musicians playing their instruments, people chanting and singing, and thousands of people coming to walk this procession with us. The people beforehand laid down pine, flowers, confetti, etc. … in order to create a pathway for the Lord. There were about 20 stations or so inside of people’s houses and on street corners, so beautifully decorated. The people decorated the entire village with yellow and white balloons and streamers, banners and flags, flowers, candles, etc. … bells ringing, fireworks being set off, Incense - Yes there was ALOT used … And all for what? THE EUCHARIST. Everyone - young and old, men and women, thousands of people did this for the Eucharist - Jesus Christ. This expression of Eucharistic devotion was unlike anything I have ever seen before. The people were happy, they were proud to have done all the work they did for what - the Eucharist! They see the Eucharist, not as something they receive once a week, or as just an ordinary piece of bread, but rather as the source and summit, the center of their lives, their village, and the center and the heart of Guatemala.

As of March 1, 2021 Most Holy Trinity and Our Lady of Fatima are linked. Fr. Andres Mendoza, Pastor, assisted by Fr. Eduar Gutierrez and Fr. Matthew Collins, Parochial Vicars.
This linkage will be followed by merger of the two parishes (and a later merger with the Church of the Resurrection.) For the parishioners of all three parishes, this is a major turning point. All have had their own separate parish histories of worship and service and sacrificial support by parishioners.
Now, we are being asked to embrace a new vision as members of one parish across the whole town, and to create a new history together with eventually three campuses. A transition team will be formed to plan the merger of Most Holy Trinity and Our Lady of Fatima, assisted by the pastoral planning department of the Archdiocese.
May God bless the Catholic community of Wallingford!
On January 1, 2022, Most Holy Trinity Parish in Wallingford, will merge with Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Yalesville, in accordance with canons 121 & 515 §2 of the Code of Canon Law. On September 28, 2021, Archbishop Leonard P. Blair issued a decree effecting the merger of the two parishes in Wallingford/Yalesville, Connecticut.
During the weekend of October 9/10, 2021, the decree will be read at all Masses, and its substance will be communicated to all parishioners by means of a notice in the weekend bulletins at the churches, so that parishioners can read it as they enter or exit the churches. It will also be available on the Archdiocese of Hartford website, under the News/Public Notices Section, [https://archdioceseofhartford.org/public-notices/]. Canonical recourse may be made within the peremptory time limit of ten (10) days from the legitimate notification of the decree and in accordance with the norm of law (c. 1734 §2 ).
Reverend Ryan M. Lerner, Chancellor
Archbishop Blair will join Pope Francis‘ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at 12 Noon on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph. All are invited to attend.

Open our eyes to see those in need of love and care.
Open our ears to hear those who cry out in trouble and in need.
Open our hearts to comfort the anxious and the weary.
