At Holy Trinity Parish the Worship step on the Discipleship Pathway is an important part of the  Vision and Mission of our community. Listed below are some key things that fall into the Worship step on the pathway:

Mass

The Mass is the central and most important liturgical celebration in the Roman Catholic Church. It is a memorial of the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ which he instituted at the Last Supper.  At the Mass Catholics believe that bread and wine are transformed into the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

The Mass consists of two main parts: the Liturgy of the Word, where Scripture is proclaimed and explained, and the Liturgy of the Eucharist, where the consecration of bread and wine takes place.

Around the world Mass is celebrated daily but most people attend on the weekend because Sunday is considered the Lord’s Day. At Holy Trinity Parish you can see our regular weekly and weekend Mass times by clicking HERE


Sacraments

The sacraments are an outward sign of inward grace instituted by Christ to help individuals grow in holiness. They are presented through sacred rituals. There are seven sacraments in the Catholic Church, including Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation (Confession), Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.

The sacraments  are divided into three categories of initiation into the Church (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist), healing (Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick), or service (Holy Orders, Matrimony).


Adoration

Eucharistic adoration is a practice where the consecrated host is exposed for prayer and worship. It is a time for Catholics to be in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, believing that Christ is truly present in the consecrated host.

Adoration provides an opportunity for personal prayer, reflection, and contemplation in the presence of the Eucharist. It is often associated with an attitude of reverence and awe.

At Holy Trinity Parish, adoration takes place on Wednesday and Friday mornings immediately following daily Mass.


Praise and Worship Events

Praise and Worship Nights are events focused on communal worship through music, prayer, and sometimes charismatic expressions of faith. They often involve contemporary Christian music, singing, and an atmosphere of joyful praise.

These events aim to foster a sense of community, spiritual renewal, and a deeper connection with God through expressive worship. 

At Holy Trinity Parish Praise and Worship Events are announced in our ebullition called HTP Connection. You can sign up to receive this right to your inbox by clicking HERE.
