Worship – 1st Sunday of each month
Celebration Sunday with our kids
The first Sunday of every month, our children are invited to take part in the Sunday service helping out with a variety of jobs including lectors, ushers and helping Fr John at the altar. Sign up your kids at least a week before the service on the bulletin board in the parish hall. And bring all your kids to the service!
Holy Trinity helps to serve the evening meal at the New Bedford Salvation Army soup kitchen four times a year. It’s not a hard job but very rewarding. The sign up sheet with dates and directions are on the bulletin board at the back of the church. Contact the parish office with any questions.
What our youth is up to
Holy Trinity/Amicable’s youth group has put together a schedule of activities from September through May. They meet twice a month doing community service, fundraising and some stuff just for fun. You can check out the calendar by clicking on “Youth Group Schedule” in the right hand column of this page, under “Of Interest.” New kids are always welcome – as are adult chaperones! Come join us!
It’s time for your pledge cards
Please don’t forget to fill out your pledge cards and drop them in the collection plate or mail it to the parish office as soon as you can. This helps us to make budget plans for the year. Extra pledge cards are available on the ushers’ table at the back of the church.
