Lenten Mission Online

Thank you to all who partook in our Lenten Mission! If you missed it, it’s not too late to watch the recordings to help unburden your hearts and prepare for the Triduum: Night 1Night 2Night 3

Help Welcome Our Guests

We anticipate many guests coming to Holy Trinity this week, especially for the Good Friday 3pm service and Easter Sunday at the 11:15am. Kent Building Supplies provides us with extra parking options across the street that may be used (at our own risk). If possible, consider gifting your parking spot at Holy Trinity by parking at Kent to allow closer parking for someone new, someone with reduced mobility, or families with young children. Thanks to all the helping hands who will make our celebration of the Triduum so special!

Holy Week & Easter

  • RCIA – Let’s Pray: This year we have three adults journeying through the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) process and preparing for their reception into full communion with the Church at our Easter Vigil! Please join us in praying for all involved with our RCIA process; catechumen, candidates, sponsors and facilitators, that they would come to know Jesus more personally and be filled with the Holy Spirit!
  • Triduum: What is the Triduum? If you are new or unfamiliar with what the Triduum is click here for a helpful video explanation!

  • Friday April 7: Divine Mercy Novena starts.
  • Friday April 7: Good Friday Family/Children’s Stations of the Cross Service – 10am. This service is open to all, but is particularly geared towards youth and young families. Come journey with Christ through the Way of the Cross and take time to venerate the Cross during the service.   While coming to the Stations Service does not fulfill or replace attendance at the Good Friday liturgy, it is a powerful way to remember the love and Passion of the Lord!

  • Friday April 7: Stations of the Cross – 7pm.
