To My Holy Trinity Family:
This Wednesday August 15th is a Holy Day
of Obligation as we celebrate The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary. All Catholics are required to go to mass that day. We will have four masses for you to choose from. There will be a Vigil Mass on Tuesday August 14th at 7pm. On Wednesday August 15th we will have three masses at 8:00am, 5:00pm and 7:00pm. We hope to see you there!
Holy Trinity School will be having a reunion for all graduates Labor Day Weekend on Sunday September 2nd. All are invited to attend the 5pm mass and gather after mass for a potluck. Whether it has been three years or thirty years, all are invited to attend. Come by and visit your alma mater!
This Friday the Holy Trinity School Faculty and Staff will be gathering for their annual retreat to kick off the new school year. I will be leading the retreat, so I ask that you keep me in your prayers. We will once again have two teachers for the next two years from the University of Notre Dame. They are part of the ACE Program where they send out graduate students working on their teaching credential and MA, to come and teach at a catholic school for two years. This will be our 3rd year working with the University of Notre Dame. They will be in 4th and 7th grade. May God Bless all of our faculty and staff!
The people in this weekend Gospel quite frankly though that Jesus was a little bit “crazy.” They could not believe what
he was saying, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” They knew Jesus and his family and to them he was just an “ordinary guy” from the neighborhood. We can all be blinded by familiarity.
Sometimes those closest to us are doing great things, but we fail to acknowledge it because we are blinded by complacency. Mass is nothing to be bored about! When we receive Jesus in the most Holy
Eucharist, there is nothing ordinary about this action. We are receiving Jesus, may our hearts be overcome with joy! Jesus is in our midst, let us always show him the respect and honor that is due!
As we receive
Jesus this weekend,
may we truly become
more Christ like to
each other! See you at
mass for the Holy
Day of Obligation!
