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 ministry.
