Soup & Stations

Come to Soup & Stations Friday evenings during Lent from 5:45-6:45pm at the IHOM Social Center, then walk to the Church for Stations of the Cross at 7:00pm. 

This is a wonderful Catholic tradition where communities come together to have a light meal of soup (meatless) and bread, then pray the Stations of the Cross.  Stations of the Cross will also be prayed at ICC in New Hartford at 7:00pm. 

If you have any questions please call Roxanne at the Parish Office.

This Lent, “Unlock the Mystery of the Bible!”

If you would like to have a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of your faith, then join your fellow Parishioners on our Lenten Journey as we renew our popular introductory study, “Unlocking the Mysteries of the Bible” beginning 2/25 at Trinita from 6:30 - 8:30pm every other Tuesday. 

The Study consists of 8 engaging half-hour videos by our “Great Adventure” founder, Jeff Cavins, followed by a lively group discussion.    It’s a great and entertaining way to get the ‘big picture’ of the Bible and uncover the story woven throughout in a simplified, easy-to-follow narrative approach that ties the stories together and makes it easy to follow.  In this study you will:

· Simplify the complexity of 73 books and get the “big picture” of the Bible;

· See how our faith is rooted in Scripture;

· See how the Bible reveals God’s loving plan for your life’

· Learn the major people, places and events of Biblical history;

· Deepen your Lenten devotions;

· Help to bring about a profound renewal in our Parishes as we grow in Christ;

· Enjoy yourself.

“Come and See!”

Men’s Retreat   --  Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center

March 6-8, 2020

Our Lady Of Hope Annual Men's Retreat is scheduled for March 6—8, 2020 at Holy Family Retreat Center in West Hartford, CT. The 2020 theme is Our Deepest Longing. We spend our time and energy on the necessities of everyday life, which hold so many things that are beyond our control. But what is it that we are longing for in the deepest way? What is our passion in life? This year at Holy Family, we will explore that deep longing planted in our hearts by God - a longing for peace, for wholeness, and for relationships that give us joy and lift us up. Come away and rest awhile to find and pursue your deepest longing, and by doing so, may you experience how God is longing so deeply for you, too.

Please join your Brothers in Christ for a spirit filled weekend. It begins with a buffet dinner at 6pm on Friday evening. It concludes with a celebration of Sunday Eucharist at 10:45am followed by a hot brunch at noon. It is open to family of retreatants at no cost .

If there is financial need scholarships are available from Holy Family. Contact Walt McManus at 860-489-4787 or Ken Copija at 860-309-8380 or HolyFamilyRetreat.org.
