Holy Trinity Catholic Church

Holy Trinity is a smaller, neighborhood parish in Atwater Village, Los Angeles, California. The parish was established in 1925. Our church building seats about 350 people, and has retained many traditional styles that make Catholic churches distinctive and reflect our parishioners' intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and His Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.

We serve Catholics and the community at large by offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass daily, operating the parish school, and involving our parishioners in many ministries and apostolates. We hope this site will help to familiarize you with our community and those who serve you.

From the Pastor

To My Holy Trinity Family,

            Words can not express how grateful I am for the wonderful Welcome Potluck that you gave last Sunday. Your hospitality and kindness has deeply moved and touched me. I thank you for embracing me. I truly feel blessed to be assigned at Holy Trinity. I promise to work as hard as I can for all of you. I will be here as long as God wants me. May God’s will be done. Thank You again.

            This Sunday we celebrate Catechetical Sunday. We are blessed with wonderful catechists in our Religious Education Program. Our teachers at Holy Trinity School are a dedicated group. Please pray for our wonderful teachers that are helping form our young people.  May God continue to guide Lito Reyes our DRE and Alice Martinez our principal.

            Thank you for your generosity to Holy Trinity Parish. I know that you all have financial obligations of your own, and I greatly appreciate all that you give to Holy Trinity. Stewardship is part of being a follower of Christ. We need to all reflect on this question, “Do I show my gratitude to God for all that he has given me by giving of my time, talent, and treasure?” We all have something to give God. Let us show our thanks to God by giving what we can to glorify His name.

            Our Gospel this Sunday is one of my favorites. We often compare ourselves to others. We get annoyed when people at work are not living up to our expectations. Our Gospel tells us in a loving way, “Worry about yourself.” We get so worked up over other peoples actions at times. We are all made different with various gifts. The reality of life is that there will always be others that do not carry their weight at home or in the work force. We may feel cheated or taken advantage of. But God knows all. Lets make our reward in heaven and not here on earth. And remember to PRAY PRAY PRAY. It is through prayer alone that we can make it through the day.

In Christ,

Fr Ricardo
