It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion, which is a source of grace. Spiritual Communion is an ardent desire to receive Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament and lovingly embrace him at a time or in circumstances when one cannot receive Him in sacramental Communion. The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily. Spiritual Communion Prayer My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, Come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there And unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
Greetings to you all. Let me thank those of you who have been generous and concerned regarding the weekly church envelope. Your thoughtfulness and generosity is greatly appreciated. Secondly, I ask for your assistance as we further sacrifice, to help us in maintaining the resources of the parish. You may choose to mail in or drop off your weekly church contribution to the rectory, or join in the electronic online giving known as WESHARE. This will aid the parish in maintaining its resources. Please frequent the parish website at holytrinitypoughkeepsie.com. Also, many people still have not signed-up for FLOCKNOTE. Please spread the word to the parishioners sign-up and or for those who do not know about the website, please tell them to go on and keep up with parish news. The weekly bulletin is available on the website too. Sign ups for FLOCKNOTE and WESHARE are on the website. Thank you for continued generosity and support in these difficult times. We are together when we pray even in our private prayers. My blessings and thanks go out to you all, Fr. Mizzi-Gili
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Our parish was founded in the year 1921 and will be celebrating a Centennial Anniversary in the year 2021. Centennial Committee parish members; Deacon Shaun Boyce, Mike Bozyczko, Kimberly Bubb, Dora Carbone, Loretta Freire, Salena Gray, Warren Grunbok, Andrew Heaton, Betty Lane, John Lentz, Josephine Libroso, Judianne Middlebrook, Tim Middlebrook, Gary Privratsky and Eoin Wrafter, are currently making preparations for this historic milestone event. We are asking you for your support to be a part of the collectible Centennial Program booklet, by sharing copies of your memorable snapshots of special events that you and your families have attended here at Holy Trinity Church. Since our parish's inception on June 15th, 1921, many weddings, baptisms, First Holy Communions, Confirmations, school graduations, CYO sporting events, concerts, spring festivals, pancake suppers, parish picnics and appreciation dinners have set off a good number of flashbulbs. We are only asking that your snapshots be either brought to the Church Rectory during office hours, where Diana will scan them, or you can email your scanned .jpg (j‐peg) or .pdf formatted images to firstname.lastname@example.org. Along with each snapshot or image submitted, please include a caption describing the event and year. Names are optional. All images with captions will be entered into the Centennial Program in chronological order. Our Centennial Committee member, Choir member and Chef extraordinaire, Loretta Freire, is collecting your favorite meal and dessert recipes for the Holy Trinity Parishioner's Commemorative Cookbook. You can email your recipes to Loretta (email@example.com). The Centennial Committee is also planning the Centennial “Kickoff” Dinner, to be held on September 20, 2020. This event will be a memorable fun‐filled evening of dancing to a live band. Tickets will have to be purchased for this event. Check the weekly bulletin for more event dates leading up to the Culmination Mass at which His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, will be in attendance here at Holy Trinity Church on Sunday, June 13th, 2021. Thank you.
