May is the ‘Month of Mary’ ~ In the Catholic Church, the month of May is the ‘Month of Mary’.  Throughout the month we will honor Our Blessed Mother at all the Masses with prayers . . . for Her protection, Her intercession, and that She more clearly shows us the way to Her Son, Jesus Christ.

The 2018 Annual Diocesan Appeal

Your support of this year’s Appeal ensures that essential charitable, educational and pastoral ministries of the Diocese of Peoria are continued and carried forward. Thanks to all who made a pledge to the 2018 Annual Diocesan Appeal.  If you wish to use the 2017 average gift for Historic St Patrick as a benchmark for your 2018 ADA pledge, it is $369.00. Our parish is trying to reach 100% participation. If you have not yet made a gift to the ADA, we invite you to do so today. There are pledge cards on the table in the rear of the Church. Every dollar raised over our goal will be kept in the parish! Donations may also be made by signing up for automatic deduction by credit or debit card, by direct debit or online.  May God continue to bless our Diocese and the services and programs provided by the ADA.

Our ADA Goal for 2018 is $51,372;
current pledges total $ 35,939.37 (70%).

Philippians: Life in Christ

Towards the end of his life, under arrest and awaiting trial in Rome, Saint Paul writes a short but powerful letter to the Philippians. The Philippians were not only Paul’s sons and daughters in the Faith but also his partners in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. At the heart of this letter is Paul’s eloquent hymn of Christ’s total gift of self. With his words and the example of his life, Paul exhorts the Philippians to have the mind of Christ, to live a life worthy of the Gospel, and, by God’s grace, to gain Christ.

Tuesday evenings beginning April 17 @ 6.30pm (6 sessions) Contact the Holy Trinity Parish Office for more information or to sign-up (309) 829-2197
