There are many groups represented within Parish Life that play a part in making Holy Trinity a vibrant, involved and active parish.

In case you missed it...
Faith and begorrah! A fine time was had by all! On that most sacred of all Feast Days, for the unknowing, that would be St. Patrick’s Day, over 200 Holy Trinity parishioners gathered to celebrate. It was brilliant! There was a message from the Ambassador of Ireland, Daniel Mulhall, there was singing, there was dancing…by Fr. Gillespie! There was a quiz, there was laughing…all in all it was, as the Irish are wont to say, it was good Craic. Wish you’d been there? Now you can see what everyone’s talking about below:
Virtual Sunday Coffee and Donuts
We are currently meeting virtually for Coffee & Donuts at 10:30 am each Sunday. Grab a cup of coffee and a donut from your kitchen and join us on Zoom for fellowship.
