SATURDAY MASS: BACK ROW RESERVED
for congregation members who are unable to physically
make it to the altar for communion.
Eucharistic Ministers will bring communion to people in the back row,
which will be reserved for those who find it difficult to stand and wait in line.
For those of you who are able bodied, please refrain from sitting in the reserved row.
Thank you for your cooperation.
currently has no onsite Spiritual Care employee, there is no notification at this time of Catholic patients to the Catholic Hospital Chaplain (Fr. Thomas). This means that if you know of someone in the hospital who would like to receive Holy Communion or even a prayerful visit, it is imperative that you let your parish office know. They will then contact Father Thomas, the Catholic Hospital Chaplain for visits and he will further communicate to the outreach Eucharistic volunteers. For the past few months we have been notified of very few Catholic patients in the hospital and we would like to make sure patients don't miss the opportunity of Holy Communion at a time when they may need it the most.
ARMATUS ONLINE TRAINING
has now begun for ALL of our volunteers.
By now those of you who volunteer at Trinity Catholic, should have received an email with a link to begin your online training, this is in line with the Bishop’s letter in June (posted on the TC Bulletin Board), our deadline for course completion is October so please check your email boxes and let the office know if you have not yet received your email, or if you need it to be re-sent. Our new Parish Responsible Minister is Leo Chapelle, who will be monitoring your progress through the website portal, please contact the office if you have any questions.
MOST HOLY ROSARY
The month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the fact that the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on October 7th. It was instituted to honour the Blessed Virgin Mary in gratitude for the protection that she gives the Church in answer to the praying of the Rosary by the faithful. In this month of October, let us consider this beautiful prayer of the Rosary as a means that we too can use in order to draw closer to Jesus and Mary by meditating on the great mysteries of our salvation.
I encourage you to pray the rosary everyday with your family for the church and peace of the world.
God bless, Fr. Jozef.
