WELCOME TO HOLY TRINITY CATHOLIC CHURCH

As a parish founded by St. John Neumann and dedicated to the Holy Trinity, we worship the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the celebration of the Liturgy. Through Word and Sacrament, we are then given the strength to go forth to live out our faith in our daily lives, bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to all we encounter.

  • Fr. Stephen Kelley, Pastor
  • Sr. Anna Cosgrave, OSF –  Pastoral Assistant
  • Melissa Horn, Office Administrator
  • Deacon Jim Doyle, Permanent Deacon, retired

Many of Fr. Kelley’s homilies are available via his blog.

News about re-opening the church…

Clipart church open house, Picture #450472 clipart church open house

As announced recently by local news outlets, Lancaster County will move to the YELLOW phase of reopening, on June 5.

Our church will be open for public Mass beginning, wonderfully, on our parish feast day of Holy Trinity Sunday, June 7,
beginning with the Saturday evening Mass, and the two regularly scheduled Sunday Masses. Instructions and information will be published and available next week.

As you probably know, our neighboring parishes in York County will be opening earlier. It is requested that the faithful of Lancaster County NOT travel to York to attend church there, as this creates an unexpected situation for those churches, who are carefully planning their re-opening based on their own parish information and preparations. Thank you for your patience, your kindness, your faithfulness, and your cooperation.

God bless you!

7. Pray the Holy Rosary – Marian Messages

The Holy Father, Pope Francis, issued a letter on the Holy Rosary this morning.
It can be found in its entirety in a variety of languages HERE.
In the letter, the Holy Father urges us to “rediscover the beauty of praying the Rosary at home.”
Pastors are asked to invite their parishioners to pray the Rosary at home as a family during the month of May
with the particular intentions of uniting us further as a spiritual family and overcoming the current pandemic.
The Holy Father offers two prayers that may be used to conclude the Rosary during this time.

A brief list of resources for the Holy Rosary (you may know of others):

A simple guide from the Knights of Columbus: A Guide to Praying the Rosary
Apostolic Letter of Pope St John Paul II on the Rosary:  The Rosary of the Virgin Mary
From St John Paul II Society: Meditations for Praying the Rosary
From Archbishop Fulton Sheen: Meditations on the Mysteries of the Rosary

Please pray for those who are ill, those who are vulnerable, and those who have died.
And let us pray that the LORD may inspire those in medical research
to heal those who are ill, and to prevent the spread of the virus.

Holy Trinity Church, Saint Peter’s Church, and Our Lady of the Angels School
are not part of the bankruptcy process of the Diocese.
All donations given to the parish or school
benefit the parish or school.

The diocesan offices and ministries will continue to operate
and support the needs of parishes, the faithful, and needy
while the Diocese financially restructures.

Please join us in prayer for victims of abuse, particularly those who suffered abuse
by clergy, employees, and volunteers in the Church’s ministry.

Please pray also for those who have been scandalized by the abuse crisis,
particularly those who suffer a crisis of faith in God, in Christ, in the Church,
or left the Church and the reception of the Holy Sacraments.

Please pray also for Bishop Gainer and the administration of the diocese,
as they seek to provide support and justice to the victims,

as well as providing for the ministry of the Diocese of Harrisburg to the faithful and needy.
