Holy Trinity Catholic Church
Welcome To Our Parish

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:
The Pharisees were very confident and full of false pride in today's Gospel. They were looking to trap Jesus and make him an enemy of Caesar. Jesus does not fall for this trap though. He sees the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. They are not genuinely concerned about what is right or wrong, they simply want to make Jesus look bad to others because they are insecure and threatened by Jesus. Our world is full of traps for a Christian. We are constantly being attacked for our moral teachings and what we stand for. The devil will try and make evil look good and pleasurable. We must be on guard just as Jesus was against evil. Let us be people of prayer everyday so that we can be ready when Satan tries to deceive us.
Today is World Mission Sunday. There are envelopes in the pews today. This money goes to help our brothers and sister most in need. It also helps spread the Gospel of Christ throughout the world. May God bless your generosity. If God has blessed us let us give thanks to him by helping those most in need.
It is hard to believe that All Souls Day is only two weeks away. During the month of November we Catholics are reminded in a special way to pray for our brothers and sisters that have died before us. If you wish to enroll your deceased in the masses that will be said for the All Soul's Novena, the envelopes can be found in the pews and Church as well. You can also come to the parish office. The suggested donation is $10.00 per person. You can turn in your envelope in the Sunday Collection or bring it by the parish office. May we also trust in God's mercy for us. Just as Jesus rose from the dead, may we trust that all of the dead may be reunited with Our Heavenly Father one day in heaven. Let us in a special way pray for all the souls in purgatory.
As the business of life takes over I just want to thank you for all that you do for Holy Trinity Parish. Your commitment and love for this parish is inspiring to see. May Jesus Christ continue to be the center of our parish and may we trust in his plan for us as a parish family. Please pray for your priests and deacon. Be assured our our prayers for you.

In Christ,
Fr. Ricardo
