What Can I Expect?

It’s good that you’re here! If you’re new to the parish, to the Catholic faith or if you’re just stopping by this website out of curiosity, welcome! Can’t wait 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 a Sunday or weekday Mass on YouTube? This will provide a good introduction to what to expect at Mass. 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 feel free to connect with us directly to find out what a good next step might be. Please visit this page for Mass times.

Where should I go when I arrive?

Our parking lot has entrances on both Sackville Drive and Beaver Bank Road (the Beaver Bank Road entrance has a gate that is closed throughout the week). There is one main entrance to the church, upon entering the double doors, you’ll arrive in the foyer but can see the main sanctuary on the right hand side. There are hand sanitizer dispensers in the foyer and all are welcome to use them. We also have a section of seats reserved for social distancing.

What can I expect at Mass?

Holy Trinity is a Catholic parish, so if you have been to Mass before you will recognize the liturgy and prayers. Here are a few pieces of information that may be helpful: 

  1. Both contemporary-style worship music (similar to songs we might hear on the radio) as well as traditional hymns are sung at Holy Trinity. We spend time singing and praising God. All are welcome to join in joyfully, participate quietly or simply experience it reflectively.
  2. The words of the songs and prayer responses will be on the screen for your convenience.
  3. After the final blessing we pray the St Michael Prayer (which will be displayed on our screens for convenience).  
  4. Sunday Mass is usually about 60 minutes long and our clergy give challenging and inspiring homilies each week. Homilies from past Sunday Masses can be found 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

All of us are on a journey and we are all in different spots on that journey. The new Holy Trinity Discipleship Pathway was recently introduced and this pathway encourages all of us to take a next step on our faith journey:

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