Parish to Honor Judy Casassa on Oct 16, 2022

Judy Casassa

On Sunday, October 16, we will honor the late Judy Casassa and give thanks for her years of stewardship at Blessed Trinity, most notably “her efforts in obtaining and administering a $300,000 plus grant from the State of New York, enabling us to undertake needed restoration of exterior areas of our…Landmark Church.” In addition to the Mass intention, Father Bob will dedicate a memorial to Judy in the east side garden and new signage recognizing the State’s funding contribution. The tribute to Judy will continue at a reception in St. Charles Hall following the 10am Mass.

with a “Rosary on the Green,”

Although it is not a Holy Day of Obligation this year, we will honor Our Blessed Lady on the Feast of her Assumption into heaven with a public recitation of the Rosary. Please bring a lawn chair and join us at 4PM near the statue of Our Lady on the west side of the church. In the event of rain, we will gather in church. We will serve light refreshments following the service. This event is open to all, so please invite someone to join us in prayer.

Sunday, December 19 at 2 PM – Advent Service of Lessons & Carols

On Sunday, December 19, 2021 at 2pm, the St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum returns for an Advent Service of Lessons and Carols. Works by Byrd, Handl-Gallus, Hassler, Praetorius, Rheinberger, Victoria and others will be performed. Lessons and Carols is a service of scripture readings and sung responses that tell the story of salvation from Genesis to Revelation. It takes you on a journey through time that begins in the Garden of Eden with the fall of man, and leads up to the coming of a Savior. The journey does not end with the coming of Christmas, however. It is an ongoing journey that continues every day of our lives until Christ comes again in glory. Join us for this beautiful preparation to welcome Jesus into our hearts! The St. John Paul II Schola Cantorum is an “a cappella” choir dedicated to preserving, promoting and performing sacred choral works from the great treasury of music of the Catholic Church. Their repertoire ranges from Gregorian Chant to masterpieces of sacred polyphony from the Middle Ages to modern times. For more information, follow them on Facebook @JP2Schola.

Decorating for Christmas

We’ll be “decking the halls” – not to mention the nave, transept and Sanctuary on Monday evening, December 20, beginning at 6:30. Plan now to stop and lend a hand. It will make your Christmas experience at Blessed Trinity even more meaningful. Please enter by the ramp side door.
