Liturgical Directives
In addition to practicing good hygiene, the Archbishop has set forth directives for the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy and for flu prevention.
Here at Holy Trinity, we are making the following changes:
• The Holy Water fonts will remain empty.
• The distribution of the Precious Blood for the faithful is suspended.
• Holy Communion will only be distributed in the hand.
• The exchange of the sign of peace is to be offered without any physical contact. Bowing is suggested.

Remember to turn your clocks ahead Saturday night.

Remember your compassion, O Lord,
and your merciful love, for they are from of old.
Let not your enemies exult over us.
Redeem us, O God of Israel, from all our distress.
Cf. Psalm 25 (24): 6,2, 22
