The Most Holy Trinity

27 May 2018


In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.




This Eucharist gathers us together so that we may be drawn more deeply into the life of our God, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  We come to drink deeply from the wells of salvation and to give thanks for our life of faith.
