Light a Candle for the Cure - Easter Vigil
Thank you to all who have supported the “Candle for a Cure” campaign thus far. The campaign will continue until such time we are able to return to the church.
A special opportunity exists to light a candle for the cure during Holy Week—in particular the Easter Vigil. Because the church goes “dark” on Holy Thursday night through Holy Saturday (to signify Our Lord Jesus entering into his Passion and Death), we are hoping that at the Easter Vigil—the highest of Masses in which we celebrate the Resurrection—that Father Rafal can light every candle in the church. The candles will all be white and gold. There is an added intention option on the Light a Candle for Cure site to specifically request an Easter Vigil candle, so please go to this link (also found on our website) and select the intention “Light an Easter Vigil Candle.” *There are a total of 304 available candles. A list of those who light Easter candles will be on the altar for the duration of the Easter week Masses and remembered at each Mass from the Easter Vigil until April 19th.
In response to the current COVID-19 situation, the Holy Trinity Parish Office will be closed until at least Thursday, April 30. NO parish meetings, activities or groups will be on the parish campus during this time. After that date, we will consider whether additional action is necessary as we go forward.
As of March 19, Daily and Sunday Masses in the Diocese of Joliet have been suspended until further notice.
As of Saturday, March 21 at 5pm, the Sacred Heart Chapel of Eucharistic Adoration will be closed.
Confessions, Sacraments (and funerals) have also been canceled as of Saturday, March 21 until at least April 30.
(Please call the Parish Office emergency line if you are in need of a priest for Last Rites, etc.)
The Religious Education Office will also be closed but can be reached via email or phone message at 630-968-5978 with any questions or concerns.
Please email staff or leave a message at their extention [(630) 968-1366] to be answered as soon as possible or email the parish at firstname.lastname@example.org with any business. Additionally, please utilize the Drop Box next to the main Parish Office doors to drop any documents or payments. The box will be checked at least once a week.
Father Rafal Wasilewski, C.R., along with our entire parish staff encourage everyone to intensify in their efforts at prayer, fasting and almsgiving at this time. And, to pray for deliverance and protection against the coronavirus, and an end to this epidemic. Let us ask the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Health of the Sick, to intercede for us at this time.
