Dispensation on St. Patrick’s Day
This year, the celebration of the Feast of St. Patrick — March 17, 2017 — falls on the Friday of the Second Week of Lent. After due consideration of a number of requests, Cardinal Tobin dispenses the people of the Archdiocese of Newark from the obligation to abstain from meat on Friday, March 17, 2017. He reminds Catholics who avail themselves of this dispensation that the Church highly encourages you to substitute some other act of penance, such as special prayer, acts of piety or works of charity on March 17th.

Interior Renovations of the Church

The interior of the church has not been painted in over 25 years.  With the causes of water damage now addressed, we are ready to paint.  The pews also need repair and refinishing and the floor tiles beneath the pews need to be replaced.  If you would like to make a donation towards this project to beautify Holy Trinity Church, please make a donation through PayPal by clicking on the Donate button to the right or sending a donation directly to the parish. We also offer Memorial Plaques for the pews for a donation of $2000 or more and in the Mother of the Americas Shrine for gifts of $1000 or more.  Please inquire by speaking to Patti at 201-343-5170.  We hope to begin renovations as early as next summer.
