As most people know already, the Archdiocese of New York has determined that Most Holy Trinity Parish will close at the end of July of this year. We are especially saddened that our beautiful Church will also be closed. The final Sunday Mass in the Church will be July 26th, 2015, but Fr. Antony will continue to say weekday Mass as usual in the Friary until Friday, July 31st. Until then we will continue to celebrate all of our traditional activities and celebrations including the Holy Week Liturgy and the blessing of Easter food. As of now, no one knows what the plans are for the Church building, newly-restored pipe organ, Stations of the Cross, Statues, Rectory, windows, Baldachin, etc. We will keep everyone informed via this website and Facebook pages.
During 2015, Most Holy Trinity Parish will be celebrating its 120th anniversary. On Trinity Sunday, May 31, 2015 we will be holding a Mass of Thanksgiving at 3 PM with a buffet supper to follow in the parish hall at 5 PM. We are honored that the Rev. Emil Tomaskovic, S. A., has agreed to be the Principal Celebrant and homilist for this occasion. Fr. Emil is the a Former Minister General of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement and is also a parish son. We are in the process of finalizing the details and will have some information available mid-February. Information will be posted both on this website and Facebook pages. We WILL have a limit on the number of people for the dinner so please keep an eye out for details and make your plans as soon as possible.
Take a look at the picture of the magnificent interior of Most Holy Trinity Church at the top of the page. The traditional church design by default makes it a very large space to heat. We all know how gas and oil prices have risen over the past years. BY FAR the biggest expense for the parish is supplying heat during services in the cold weather. If you are a parishioner please try to be generous with your heating envelope donations. If you're a friend of MHT and can afford to make a donation to the heating fund it would be greatly appreciated. If you donate by check please be sure to write 'heating fund' in the memo line of the check.

Beginning Sunday, January 15th, 2012. Mass will be at 9:30 AM ONLY. The Saturday Vigil Mass remains at 5:00 PM.
About Most Holy Trinity
We are also fortunate to have
the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal as our neighbors. In addition to
conducting our Mission,
they participate in many of our parish works. We collect non-perishable foods
for their personal use and for the use of the patrons of the Casa Juan Diego
and their Food Pantry.
Please join us for Sunday celebration and see how you can
be a part of our “family.”
