 We've made great strides with our weekly offering here at Holy Trinity the last few weeks.  We need to make sure we continue to try to keep our collection around $8,000 each week.  During this trying time with the Corona virus, please remember you can still mail your weekly offering to the Parish Office, drop off to the Parish Office (there is a mail slot at the Drex Avenue Parish Door), or sign up to give through Electronic Giving.  If you need help signing up with Electronic Giving, call the Parish Office.  THANK YOU to those who have stepped up and given more than their normal weekly offering to help keep the collection up during this time with so few attending Mass.  We still need everyone's continued help to keep the parish viable.  If the parish can sustain an average of $8,000 a week, anything over that will go towards having a savings to take care of anything that might come up in the parish outside of regular operating costs.  Once again, thank you to all who continue to support Holy Trinity Parish.

The Lenten season begins with Ash Wednesday is a day of abstinence from meat and also a day of fast, that is, limited to a single full meal.  The Fridays of Lent are also days of abstinence from meat.  The law of abstinence is intended for all Catholics 14 years and older; while fasting is intended for those between the ages of 18 and 59.  The teaching of the Church is that failure to observe an individual day of penance is not considered seriously wrong.  However, the obligation to observe some form of penance is a serious one and should not be ignored.  People  should be encouraged to do more rather than less.  Fast and abstinence on the days prescribe should be considered a minimum response to the Lords’ call to penance and conversion.

WHAT IS

BEACONS OF LIGHT

Beacons of Light is a multiyear process of pastoral planning for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Rooted in prayer, groupings of parishes will come together as one faith community. These new “Families of Parishes” will be stronger together, focused more on mission than on maintenance. In the Families of Parishes, we will grow closer to God, follow Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit and radiate Christ in our lives.

1. Eucharist: The Mass is the source and summit of the whole Christian life. Accordingly, the Eucharist is the essential moment for building up and strengthening the parish community, along with the sacraments and other celebrations of the paschal mystery — the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

2.  Church: Each of us is called to actively participate as a member of a parish, the Universal Church and our local Church, led by our archbishop. Parishes continually deepen the bonds of communion with other parishes.

3.  Leadership: Pastors, in collaboration with parochial vicars, deacons and lay ministers, according to their proper roles and charisms, share responsibility for pastoral leadership. The spiritual, physical and mental health and ongoing support of ordained and lay leaders is vital for Families of Parishes.

4.  Stewardship: Families of Parishes are communities of grateful disciples. Recognizing God’s gifts, they use their talents, skills and resources to build up the Church and live as Christ’s body in the world.

5.  Evangelization: As centers of missionary outreach, Families of Parishes find new ways to foster discipleship among all the baptized. Schools, religious education, faith formation and indeed the domestic Church itself are centers of this essential work.

6.  Love in Action: Families of Parishes will be communities of charity and justice, serving those most in need and working to change systems that oppress and marginalize. www.catholicaoc.org/beacons
