Dear Parishioners

-

We have distributed the Rice Bowl to each of our Faith Formation students. We do have some extra Rice Bowls for you to take home with you. We ask that you enter into the Season of Lent by saying extra prayers, abstaining from certain foods or things (in consultation with the compassionate regulations of the Church and your care giver), and participating in almsgiving – giving money to the poor.
The Rice Bowl provides you that opportunity to give alms to the poor by putting some money in the Rice Bowl throughout Lent and then returning it to the Church on Wednesday, April 3.
Extra prayer, abstaining from good things so that we can give alms to the poor is a way to show our love for Jesus who suffered and died on the Cross to enrich us with his divine life of grace. Lent is a time to follow Jesus Christ more closely within his Church, so that we can reach out to people and help them know God‟s love and compassion for them. Hopefully, they will then want to become a member or more active member of our Catholic Church and bring Jesus‟ love and compassion to others.
Peace in Christ,
Fr. Thomas McCabe

Part-time Maintenance/Custodial Job Opening

-

Part-time Maintenance/Custodial Job Opening at Holy Trinity: Brett Hayward worked at this position for a year before moving. The Finance Council reached consensus that the position be filled. Those who are at least 21 years of age with a MN Driver’s License can call me to apply. I prefer that this person be a practicing Catholic or at least respectful of the Catholic faith as all employees of the Catholic Church cannot be a counter witness to the Catholic faith. The expectation is to work up to 6 hours/week, $15-$17/hr. depending on experience. The person must be able to shovel snow before Mass, Faith Formation classes and other events; cut lawn and care for our relatively new riding mower and do some custodial work when needed at each church. Call Fr. McCabe at 651-923-4472 by April 25 if you are interested and can provide references. The required “Essential Three” (background check, Code of Conduct and VIRTUS training) will also need to be completed.
