Sacramental Prep Update

This past Sunday we celebrated some major milestones in the faith journey of those seeking to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation this spring! At the 9 a.m. Mass we celebrated the Rites of Acceptance and Welcome for those currently in RCIA, receiving them as catechumens and candidates for these sacraments of initiation! At the 11:15 a.m. Mass, we received the Enrolment and Inscription promises of our youth involved in preparations for First Communion and Confirmation, and heard their profession of faith and desire to receive these sacraments. Please keep in prayer all of those who are journeying to these sacraments this year!
Additionally, if you would like more information on RCIA or our parish’s Sacramental Formation for Youth, or you would like to join the journey and assist those preparing to receive these sacraments, please contact Alex Craven at faithformation@holytrinityns.ca or by calling 782-253-0198

2024 Donation/Giving Envelopes

Just a reminder to pick up your 2024 envelopes if you have not already done so. They are in the church foyer in front of the chapel and will be there for the next few weeks. We have reached out and contacted or left messages (or tried to!) with everyone who left their name on the list who wanted envelopes, and if you’ve spoken to someone about that, your envelopes will be labelled and on the table with the others in the foyer. If you wish to receive envelopes, please contact Stephen at the Parish Office (902-865-2112 ext. 110) or by email at stephen@holytrinityns.ca. If you would like more information or explore other ways of giving (online, e-transfer, automatic withdrawal, etc.), please also contact Stephen or click HERE
