CC Feast Day

On September 14th, we celebrate the feast day of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, also known as the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross. This feast celebrates the triumph of the Cross of Christ as a symbol of redemption and salvation for Christians. This is significant to us at HTP because our Priests are members of The Companions of the Cross and this feast day plays an important role in their community. Come join us for a special mass where all the Companions of the Cross and their Lay Associates will gather to celebrate together. The Mass will be at 7pm at Holy Trinity Parish (4 Beaver Bank Road). All are welcome!

RCIA

RCIA or the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process designed for adults who are seeking to become full members of the Catholic faith. Inquirers in the RCIA process are joined by catechists, sponsors, and the parish community as they embark on a journey of preparation, instruction, and formation which leads to the reception of the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. The RCIA process is not only for those who haven’t been baptized. RCIA also serves individuals who were baptized Catholic but have not completed their initiation through the sacraments of the Eucharist and/or Confirmation as well as individuals who were baptized in other Christian traditions but are now seeking to fully join the Catholic Church. If you or someone you know has a desire to explore joining the fullness of the Catholic Church, now is your time to reach out and start the process! Contact faithformation@holytrinityns.ca for more details.
