Laetare Sunday at Holy Trinity Catholic Church

Following the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at Noon, Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament will take place. Father James Bartoloma of the Diocese of Camden will be the celebrant tomorrow, which is Laetare Sunday. 

On the fourth Sunday of the month it is customary at Holy Trinity to have Benediction. Let us pray in a particular way for God's continued blessing on our apostolate and for a conversion of those hearts which are hardened toward the Extraordinary Form of the Mass.
