Holy Trinity Social Concerns: Love Your Neighbor Project

From now until the end of August, we will be helping to feed 129 kids 2 meals a day. These meals are assembled and delivered every Sunday to these children in the Nitro area. We are collecting canned goods, e.g. ravioli, spaghetti-os, beefaroni, etc., and boxes of macaroni and cheese. Please put your donations in the red wagon or black bucket in the gathering space.

These will be picked up on Saturdays so they can be packed and delivered on Sundays.

Living Faith Meditation Booklets
The Living Faith Meditation booklets for July-August-September are on the counted in the Gathering Space. A donation of $2 is suggested.

Thank You

A special "THANK YOU" to Father Prakash for all you have done to help St. Patrick's during the brief time we spent together. May God Bless You in all your future endeavors.

​​Thank You Father Prakash

Our Tri-Parish Farewell Gathering for Father Prakash will be on Saturday, June 16 in Holy Trinity Hall after the 5:00 p.m. Mass.

You are the image and likeness of God. But with you the morning awakens with the call to rise not for you, but always for others. God forever bless you, walk and carry you when your feet are weary, bring peace and joy to your heart. For though your life is never for you, it is Christ's and he delights in you. We will miss you Fr. Prakash. Though you weren't here for long, we thank you for taking care of our Tri-Parish Community!

Holy Trinity SALT Meal/Schwan's Cares Fundraising Campaign

Please remember to place your orders for Schwan's. This will directly benefit social concerns. We have earned an extra $100 already, let's see if we can get one more bonus! Only $71 away from it. Remember you can purchase $25 gift cards from there also.

​​​​​Mass Intention

If you would like to request a Mass Intention, you can fill out a Mass Intention envelope at the church or you can create an envelope with the following information: who the Mass Intention is for and whether the person is living or deceased, the date you are requesting, your name and a telephone number where you can be reached during the day, and the amount you are offering. You may drop your Mass Intention envelope in the collection basket or sent it to the office. If the date you request is unavailable, your intention will be scheduled for the next open date available unless you request otherwise.


In accordance with the guidelines from the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston. Mass stipends are deposited in a separate checking account. If you are writing a check, please make it payable to your respective church. The current suggested level of giving is $20 for a weekend Mass or $10 for a daily Mass. Any offering, however, is most welcome, and if you do not have funds to offer, you are encouraged to still request your Mass Intention.


Prayer List for the Sick & Homebound
As you know, we keep a list on the church bulletin of people who are sick and homebound. Please remember these people in your prayers and let us know if you have a special prayer request. Also, please let us know when we need to remove someone from the list.

Hearing Assistance Available
If you would like some hearing assistance during Mass, contact the church office.
