IMPORTANT UPDATE #1 – June 6, 2021 

During the upcoming months we will begin the process of transitioning to be part of the “Family of Parishes” with the Polish Community & Ingersoll church, Sacred Heart. The activation date of our “family” is expected to be July 2022.  We know that many of you have questions about what this announcement means and what will be happening in the following months. So today, we begin with Part #1 of a series of Q&A that will explain what you can    expect. 

  

WHAT IS A FAMILY OF PARISHES? 

A Family of Parishes is a grouping of parishes lead by one single pastoral team (pastor, associate pastor, deacons, pastoral & youth ministers, etc.) sharing resources to advance the mission of our Church. Our grouping will include Holy Trinity, Holy Cross & Sacred Heart in Ingersoll. 

  

WHO WILL BE OUR PRIESTS? 

Fr. Dariusz will remain our Parish Administrator and will be assisted by Fr. Raj. Our priests will continue to be responsible for all three parishes, so they will regularly rotate between parishes, similar to what has been happening since February. 

The process of becoming a “Family of Parishes” will take several months & that is why we are beginning the process and explaining the basics now. This process is going to be both exciting and challenging. In the coming months, the staffs will begin making ministry connections and sharing ideas. A Transition Team will be formed. As we work through this process, there will be many opportunities for you to provide input and receive information. 

May the Holy Spirit guide us along the way! 

IMPORTANT UPDATE #2 – June 13, 2021

Further to our 1st update in last week's bulletin of becoming a “Family of Parishes” (Holy Trinity Parish & Holy Cross of Woodstock & Sacred Heart, Ingersoll), our staff’s next steps will be to gather in prayer on a bi-weekly basis with the focused intention of a successful transition into our “Family of Parishes” that is scheduled to be implemented next July 2022.  

We will gather on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month beginning June 25, 20211. We will begin with our regularly scheduled Mass at 9:30 am followed by a time of Adoration/Rosary.  

We invite you to join us in prayer if you are able. We will be livestreaming the Mass and Adoration for those who cannot join in person. We know and trust that through prayer God will guide us each step of the way to a successful transition into our “Family of Parishes.” 

May the Holy Spirit guide us along the way!
