Priestly Vocations 2015

Discernment Overnight
October 9-10, 2015
A Discernment Overnight offers a young high school man (Freshman-Junior in high school) a unique opportunity to experience the seminary and learn about the priesthood. We host two Overnights each academic year and you’re encouraged to attend both. There’s no better way to learn about life in the seminary then from a current seminarian! You’ll hear presentations, pray, eat and recreate with them. There is also time for quiet reflection. Take the “leap of faith” and consider and Overnight visit at Sacred Heart Seminary so you can better discern your vocation.

Regional Discernment Groups
Are you a man ages 16-55 who wants to actively discern your vocation as a Catholic priest? Or maybe you are just interested in learning more about the priesthood and meeting people who are working toward the same goal. These Regional Discernment groups will meet bi-monthly for a time of prayer, presentations on discernment, and fellowship. These groups are run by the AOD’s Regional Vocation Promoters. Below are the dates and locations of the groups from our region:
Northeast Region: Holy Trinity Parish, Port Huron (Room 101 in St. Stephen School)
October 4 at 7 pm; December 6 at 7 pm; February 7 at 7pm
RSVP by Friday at Noon before the event.

Photos from National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 4th, Holy Trinity Parish collaborated with five other churches and Literacy and Beyond (which is based at First Congregational) to host NNO 2015 at First Congregational Church. First Congregational, First Presbyterian, Grace Episcopal, St. Martin Lutheran and Our Savior Lutheran all contributed to this Olde Town neighborhood community event which featured food, fun, inflatables, face painting, games, and prizes. Twenty-eight Holy Trinity volunteers were cooking or serving food, calling bingo numbers, donating and distributing prizes, and doing whatever was needed to help out. The husband of one particular volunteer couple (who recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, by the way) was busy spinning records and serving as Master of Ceremony. Thanks to all who came to be part of the celebration.

Seminar With Father Ben Luedtke

Come Join Us! Summer Seminar With
Father Ben Luedtke July 16, 17 & 18, 2015
Holy Family Parish
The Divine Mercy Missionary Center
79780 Main St., Memphis, MI 48041

Ordained in Rome by St. John Paul II, Fr. Luedtke has worked on three continents. He presently serves Mother Teresa’s Missionary Sisters of Charity. Each Missionary sister prays for a special priest, and Fr. Luedtke was Mother Teresa’s “special priest”. Father also works with youth in Hawaii and is a spiritual director to several Carmelite cloistered monasteries. Formerly in theater, Father credits the Blessed Mother with his conversion to priesthood. Fr. Luedtke loves to reconcile souls with God in confession as a means of true healing and interior peace. His enthusiasm for the faith and deep devotion to Jesus and Mary touches the minds and hearts of all who hear him. Father will share the treasurers of our Catholic faith in a dynamic, fun entertaining manner that only Fr. Ben can do.

Enrichment Day for All Those in Liturgical Ministry

From Fr. Brian:

On Saturday, September 12th, we will be offering a wonderful day of enrichment and reflection for all those involved in a liturgical ministry here at Holy Trinity Parish (including Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers, Greeters, Sacristans, Music Ministers, and Art & Environment Ministers). The presenter for this special event will be Fr. Robert Blondell, a long-time pastor of the Archdiocese of Detroit who has done extensive work in the areas of liturgical formation and Hispanic ministry. He is a good friend of mine and we have been in the same prayer group for about 15 years. I am certain that you will enjoy this wonderful day! Please mark your calendar. The day will be held at St. Stephen Church and begin at 9:30 am, concluding around 3:30 pm. In order to have an accurate count for lunch and for other materials, please RSVP by Friday, September 4.
