Please pray for all our parishioners and their families during these trying times.
Please remember in your prayers Fr. Janusz, Fr. Raju, Fr. Sannella and Fr. Healey as they minister during this COVID-19 crisis.
The second collection next weekend will be shared by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) and the Catholic Commumcation Campaign (CCC).These two organizations communicate the Gospel by promoting works of justice, education and the dignity of human life. Your generous donations will give those in poverty the support they need to make lasting changes and will support our local communications needs, such as Catholic TV programming.
While this collection supports national efforts, a portion of the proceeds are designated for local CCHD grants and parish communication efforts. Envelopes marked "Catholic Campaign for Human Development," may be used for this collection, with the monies being divided between the two organizations listed above.
The 2022 Mass Intentions Book has arrived. Requests for Masses may be made by calling the rectory during Mondav office hours or by stopping in at the rectory during Monday office hours.
Please do your part to keep up the cemetery by bringing home your trash. Fr. Janusz Chmielecki will be celebrating his 35th Anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood on Monday, June 14. Congratulations and thanks may be sent to Fr. Janusz at
St. Joseph Parish
68 William Cardinal O'Connell Way
Boston, Mass 02114.
Fr. Janusz started coming to Holy Trinity Parish many years ago to substitute for Msgr. Kempa while the Monsignor would take his summer vacation. Since the formation ofour Collaborative seven years ago, Fr.Janusz has been celebrating most ofour Polish Masses and helping at Christmas and Easter. We are very grateful to him for his ministering to us. In spite of his duties as a Hospital Chaplain in Boston, he continues to be here for us.
As of May 29, masks are no longer required for vaccinated people in the State of Massachusetts. The State does advise that non-vaccinated people continue to wear masks. Vaccinated people also are no longer required to social distance in our parishes. Those who are fully vaccinated have the choice of wearing a mask or not, social distancing or not. It is understood that different people will be ready to take off their masks and sit near one another at different times. Please respect the decisions of others.
We no longer ask that you use only the pews off the center aisle, but please continue to use only the marked pews so that we can accommodate those who wish to continue to social distance.
The dispensation from the obligation for coming to Sunday Mass has not yet been lifted, and even when it is, if a parishioner is feeling ill they should remain at home.
Congregational singing is allowed. More information on missalettes to come.
Thank you to all who have worked so diligently to keep our church and parishioners safe.
MORE INFORMATION IN THE UPCOMING WEEKS.
What's In Your Heart?
The readings this week show that what is small, hard to see, and even invisible can have vast importance. Whether it's the tender shoot of the cedar tree or the tiny seed of the mustard plant, whatseems slight now will become something mighty. "We walk by faith, not by sight," the Second letter to the Corinthians says; we hope in that what is unseen and in the future will come to pass. The important thing, though, is to realize how the present still matters. How you tend that invisible seed makes a difference, what you do "at home in the body" now has consequences for when you are at home in the Lord, so "aspire to please him" at all times. Think of the little seeds, shoots, and easy-to-miss places in your life here where more attention and cultivation shall bear fruit," as the psalmist says, in the kingdom of God.
