Mass at HT
All are welcome at Mass here at Holy Trinity Parish. We are proud of our varied and beautiful liturgies. There are many opportunities to get involved in our liturgies. If you are interested in sharing your gifts, check our liturgical ministry page for information on getting involved. We also welcome people of different faiths at our Parish. Feel free to join in our singing and prayer. If you are not of the Catholic faith, you cannot receive Holy Communion. However, if you want a personal blessing, you can approach the priest with your right hand on your left shoulder and your left hand on your right shoulder. This tells the priest that you want a blessing. We look forward to worshiping with you.

Children at Mass
We welcome children to the Liturgy at Holy Trinity. Children do wiggle and make some noise. We view these occasional interruptions as part of family life at Holy Trinity. The following paragraphs give you a guide on how to approach the Mass with your children.
Before coming to Mass, talk with your children about church manners which includes using quiet voices as well as moving quietly and slowly in the church. (i.e. No running) Sit near the front of church so that your children can see and hear. If your child is increasingly noisy or restless, it is probably time to briefly leave the church pew. Feel free to go to the back of church or any of the vestibules. You can still hear Mass form these areas.
Take some time to explore the church when it is empty. The church is open most weekdays from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. You may enter the church using the southwest door. Together, you and your child can discover the many wonderful and interesting parts of the church and feel the history of Holy Trinity. Teach your children some of the easier prayers we use at Mass. Start with The Sign of the Cross, the Our Father, and the Sign of Peace. Teach your child to cross their arms over their chest when proceeding up to the altar in the Communion line. This indicates a desire for a blessing from the Minister of the Eucharist. In this way, young children feel a part of the Eucharist as well.
