May, The Month of Mary

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.


A message from our Pastor…

Hey y’all, Fr Reynold here…

Just passing along some good news. His Excellency, Bishop Vann, called to inform me that I’ll be here as Pastor of Holy Trinity for another year starting July 1st, 2018. Also, we will be getting another Priest to serve as Parochial Vicar. Hooray! As soon as I have more details about our new Parochial Vicar I’ll let you know. Let’s keep praying for each other and our parish.

– Fr Reynold
