Dear Jesus I believe that You are present in the most blessed sacrament. I love you above all things and desire to receive You into my soul. Since I can not 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 from being separated from You. Amen
On behalf of our parish staff and parishioners,
I welcome you to Holy Trinity & St. Stephen’s parishes.
Holy Trinity Parish is located in Fulton, NY on S. Third Street between Buffalo & Rochester Streets; St. Stephen is on Main Street in Phoenix. Our parish communities pride themselves in being open, welcoming and friendly communities. Our communities are strong in faith, generous in service to the Church and our local communities and willing to assist anyone who is searching for a personal relationship with Jesus.
Our communities offer a myriad of activities for young and old alike. We have Faith Formation Programs for all our elementary aged parishioners; Youth Group that serves our Middle School and High School parishioners and a Discipleship Group for those of our community who have received the Sacrament of Confirmation and wish to be an active part of our community. In both of our parishes, the Altar-Rosary Society is active in providing services and opportunities for fun and service; our Golden Agers serve the seniors of our community with many social activities; and our Adult Education Committees continue to offer programs for the faith-growth of all of our parishes.
We would be most happy if you chose to join us in community and worship. Our weekend schedule is posted on this website and you are most welcome to join us for any or all of our activities. As disciples of the Lord Jesus, we are called to be One Body in Christ. May the Lord Jesus continue to bless you and your loved ones and know that every person is important to us. If we can assist you in any way, please don’t hesitate to call our offices or drop me an email.
Offering you God choicest blessings,
Father Joseph E Scardella, Pastor
