Welcome to Holy Trinity Church and Saint Augustine Oratory

    We are a conservative, traditional Roman Catholic Parish which serves the sacramental and spiritual needs of the faithful.

    Our two campuses are one mile apart and include a fully functioning pre-K through 8th grade Catholic Grade School on the Holy Trinity Church campus. Our other campus is home to Saint Augustine Oratory which provides
    Tridentine Masses and Sacraments.

    Our parish is composed of those who attend the English Masses of Pope Paul VI and those who attend the traditional Tridentine Masses of 1962. Currently we provide seven Masses every weekend for the Sunday obligation between our two campuses as well as Masses on weekdays and Holy Days of Obligation.

    All Masses, whether in Latin or English, are done ad orientem at a high altar
    and communion rails are used at all Masses.

    Church Hall is set for live video for overflow

    Dear Parishioners:
    I am pleased to announce that Archbishop Hebda has decreed that Saint Augustine church will be formally designated as an Oratory effective Monday, April 24th, the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Augustine. In reality, Saint Augustine church has been operating as an oratory of the Parish of Holy Trinity since 2010, when the two parishes of Holy Trinity and Saint Augustine were first merged. This formalizes that reality under canon law. We do not anticipate any changes to Mass schedules, sacraments or operations. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Parish Office. Please continue to keep the Archbishop and our Parish in your prayers.
    Father Echert

I accomplished my graduate studies in Sacred Scripture at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome and the Ecole Biblique, Jerusalem.
