Ministries and Organizations

We are the Catholic Community of Most Holy Trinity. Our stewardship of time and talent provides opportunities for spiritual and personal growth.  We are called to serve God through each other, by caring for those within our community and beyond by creating an environment that promotes Christian faith and growth.

Listed below is a brief overview of the various ministries or affiliated organizations present in our parish, as well as the regular opportunities for spiritual activity offered here.

Liturgy Ministries: 

 

Altar Servers

Training is provided to youths ages 11-14 who are committed to serving and participating in the Eucharistic celebration of the Mass.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

As a trained minister of Communion, you are called on to serve the Body of Christ to the Church. Like all ministries, this is a great honor and a great responsibility.

Hospitality Ministers/Ushers

Bringing honor and glory to God by providing a warm spirit of Christian friendliness to all, we are needed at all Masses to greet, distribute worship aids, and assist with the collection.

Hospitality-Special Events

Several times a year, we offer our time and resources to provide refreshments for various parish celebrations.

Ministry of Care

Our trained volunteers take Holy Communion weekly to the sick and homebound, as well as to those in nursing homes and retirement centers; they visit patients at John C. Lincoln Hospital daily, minister to bereaved families at the time of death; and offer a grief support group and a caregiver support group.

Ministers of the Word (Lectors)

When you answer the call to proclaim the Bible readings to the assembled faith community, you enter into a deeper relationship with the Word of God as revealed in Sacred Scripture.  You take upon yourself the duty and privilege of bringing the printed word to life.

Sacrament Preparation: 

 

Rite Christian Initiation of Adults (RICA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which interested  persons gradually become members of the Catholic Church.  Sponsors are always needed to be a companion for those on the journey leading to the Easter Sacraments.

Baptismal Preparation

Classes are held to prepare parents and godparents.

Religious Education/Catechists

Through dedicated service, we assist families in the faith initiation and formation of children and youth.  We catechize students not enrolled in MHT School, prepare them for the reception of Sacraments, work with parents, provide liturgical celebration   opportunities, & encourage families to take an active part in parish life.  We offer a bi-lingual program for ages kindergarten through 12th grade.

Marriage Preparation

Our team is composed of several couples from both our English and Spanish communities.  We meet with couples wishing to marry in the Catholic Church, and provide classes and guidance through the parish’s preparation process.

Other Ministries and Organizations:

Through Adoration, we do Him the kindness of going to Him in a special way.  We would like to hear form you, whether you can commit to attend for an hour on Fridays in the Church, volunteer to be a substitute, or would just like more information about this uniquely Catholic tradition of prayer.  We also have Adoration Monday-Thursday 3:00-5:00pm in the Youth Center Chapel.

Society of St. Vincent de Paul

We are an international lay organization that seeks, in a spirit of justice and charity, to help those who are suffering. Vincentian spirituality is based on the very real presence of Christ in every person, especially those who have been disenfranchised or marginalized by society.  In addition to assisting people with the basics of daily living (food, rent, utilities, etc.), Vincentians are obligated to cultivate sensitivity to, and eradication of, social injustices that are the root of poverty.

Stewardship Committee

Our responsibility is to lead the stewardship effort at our parish on a year-round basis, which includes overseeing the initial introduction of the stewardship way of life to the parish, and conducting annual renewal efforts.

We have a comprehensive program designed to minister to teens of all faiths from a uniquely Catholic base. We attempt to reach teens on spiritual, educational, emotional and social levels. Teens are encouraged to embark on a journey of faith and relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Contact Samantha Villalobos at the parish office for more information
