Holy Trinity Altar Rosary Society
The Altar Rosary Society of Holy Trinity Church meets
monthly September - November and March – May on the third
Tuesday of the month at 1 pm in the Bishop’s Study. (We do not
meet in the winter and summer months.) Our meetings are
informal. We gather in the Chapel Mary to pray the Rosary, then
begin our meeting with refreshments and casual visiting. The
minutes of the last meeting are read, the treasurer’s report is given
and old business is reviewed. We discuss ways to support the
parish with suggestions and guidance from Father Scardella, our pastor.
Our Altar Rosary membership is a small but active group.
We host receptions for First Communion, Confirmation,
and other parish events. Our latest project is the implementation
of Trivia Night quarterly which has been a roaring success and fun
for all who attend. In the Christmas season we volunteer to man
the Salvation Army kettle at Price Chopper and donate to Unity
Acres, Catholic Charities and others.
In the past, the Altar Rosary donated flags placed at the
entrance of the Church.We purchased special Altar cloths for the altars
and new palls for the chalices. Other donations included new light
fixtures for the entrance ways and the purchase of
student and teacher editions of Faith Formation books. We gave a
$500 scholarship toward a student tuition at Trinity Catholic
School in Oswego, purchased a bookcase for the Chapel Mary,
and bought new outfits for the Infant of Prague. We were happy
to donate money for new standing vases for the main altar area
along with new liners for existing vases. Most recently we
purchased 22 new albs for the altar servers.
Another important way our membership helps the parish is
volunteering to clean the altar areas in the main Church and Chapel
Mary. Those who are able to help work in pairs once every 3-4 weeks.
We hope to increase our membership and welcome both men
and women of the parish as new members at anytime. Come join
us! We are a small group with big goals…but we need to grow.
Our strength is in our dedication. Please consider us for your parish
