What Can I Expect?

We’re so glad you’re here! If you’re new to the parish, to the Catholic faith or if you’re just stopping by our website out of curiosity, welcome! We’d love to meet you. On this page, you can find answers to some questions you might have about what you can expect to find at Holy Trinity Parish. 

What should I do first?

Why not check out one of our Masses here on our YouTube channel? This will give you an idea about what takes place here on Sundays. Or maybe you’re interested in exploring what it means to be Christian? If that’s the case, Alpha would be a great place to start– or you can connect with us directly to find out what a good next step might be. If you’re interested in joining us for Mass in-person, visit this page to sign up to attend on a weekend. This helpful video outlines our current COVID-19 safety measures. 

Where should I go when I arrive?

Once you’ve signed up to attend Mass and received your email confirmation, you will be met by one of our parking lot ministers out on the lot. They will have a few basic COVID-19 screening questions for you and then they will point you in the direction of the front door. Volunteers will meet you there to check off your name, take your temperature and usher you to a designated seat in the church. The words of the songs and prayer responses will be on the screen for your convenience.

What can I expect at Mass?

We’re Catholic, so if you have been to Mass before you will recognize the liturgy and prayers. However, we do things a bit differently than you may be used to at a Catholic Mass. 

  1. We use both contemporary worship music (songs you might hear on the radio) as well as traditional hymns. You’ll notice we spend time singing and praising God. You’re welcome to join in joyfully, participate quietly or simply experience it reflectively.
  2. After the final blessing we pray the St Michael Prayer (which will be displayed on our screens for your convenience).  
  3. Sunday Mass is usually about 60 minutes long and our clergy give challenging and inspiring homilies each week. If you’d like to get a sense of the powerful preaching you will hear at Holy Trinity, you can listen to homilies from past Sunday Masses HERE.

I don’t think I’m ready to go to Mass. Is there something else I could attend?

Absolutely! If you have any questions about life and Christianity, Alpha is for you! You can check out Alpha HERE

If you want to check out a mass without physically attending join us on Livestream at 9am AST Sunday Morning. 

Anything else I need to know?

Everyone is welcome! No matter what you believe or where you have come from, we’d love for you to join us. We’re here for you! If you have any questions before your visit you can contact us HERE
