Daily Mass, Weekday Mass is celebrated at 9:00 a.m. Monday through Saturday; at 6:30 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and at 6:30 P.M. on Wednesday. Parishioners are invited to come to Mass during the week in addition to the Sunday liturgy. Other parishes also offer weekday Mass times. If Holy Trinity’s weekday Mass schedule doesn’t fit your schedule, try to find a weekday Mass near your work or school.
Evangelization is reaching out to others, sharing your faith and inviting them to come to Mass with you, become involved in the parish, or simply pray for self and others. Everyone can evangelize; it is not up to clergy alone.
