Pentecost & Trinity Sunday Novena Masses

May the Grace and Peace of the Holy Spirit be with us forever!

Spring is a time of rebirth and hope.  We feel it as the cold of winter finally melts away and the warmth of spring blossoms all around us.  We feel it as we celebrate the glorious mysteries of Easter Sunday, Pentecost and Trinity Sunday.   

The Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity are part of a spiritual family within the Roman Catholic Church.  It was founded to give glory to the Triune God through works of charity and by spreading certain devotions of the Church.  The chief devotions of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity are to the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, the Eucharist, and the Incarnation.  Two of our major feast days are Pentecost and Trinity Sunday.

It is through contemplation of these mysteries that we find the insight and courage to carry out various ministries in the Church.  Our founder, Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge, taught us to have a practical kind of devotion, what he called a “devotional knowledge,” to these and other mysteries.

Bible Study: Acts of the Apostles

Mother Boniface Spirituality Center in Philadelphia is offering a Bible Study on the Acts of the Apostles. This is a five-session program of apostolic formation. The Risen Lord Jesus promised:  "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses" (Acts 1:8). Prepare for Pentecost (May 24) by studying the adventures and trials of Sts. Peter and Paul.  Learn from them how to become "missionary disciples" who confidently bear witness to faith in Jesus Christ.

Calling all Young Adults in the Northeast Philadelphia area!

Are you a young adult in your 20’s and 30’s? Are you a recent college graduate who has come back home to find that there are no young adult groups around you? Are you looking to meet fellow Catholics in the Northeast Philadelphia area while deepening your faith? Are you interested in being part of a brand new Young Adult Ministry? Are you interested in answering your missionary call to serve others, and in the words of Father Thomas Augustine Judge, “Be good, do good, and be a power for good”?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, come for a Young Adult interest meeting at Mother Boniface Spirituality Center. We want to hear your voice and feedback on how we can serve you as well as other young adults in the Northeast Philadelphia area. We will discuss ideas for potential programs, events, mission trips, and activities that promote and enliven the four pillars of our Catholic faith: The Profession of Faith, Liturgy and Sacraments, Life in Christ, and Christian Prayer.

If you are interested in attending the first meeting which will be held on Monday, April 27th at 7:00 p.m., please call us at (267) 350-1835 or email us at csoares@msbt.org. There will be free snacks and drinks for all who attend!
