Sacraments and Funerals
Baptisms are celebrated on the third Sunday of the month (pending approval). Baptisms in Spanish are celebrated during the 9am Mass and in English during the 11am Mass. Arrangements must be made in advance and the family must be registered and contributing to the parish of Most Holy Trinity for a least two months prior to the baptism.
Both the parents and godparents must attend one baptismal class. The class are held in the rectory at the Basilica of Ste. Anne, our sister parish.
Both the parents and godparents must attend one baptismal class that will be scheduled once the baptism date is finalized. Baptism must be scheduled 2 months in advance to be able to add participants to the class roster. Classes are only scheduled for those who have booked a baptism with us.
The Catholic Church requires that at least one of the parents be an active, practicing Catholic. The Godparents must be 18 years or older and must have received all the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist). If godparents are a couple living together, they must be married in the Catholic Church. A copy of the marriage certificate is needed for the godparents. The godparents should be a male and a female.

Although it is not a sacrament, Most Holy Trinity Parish encourages every family to share their faith and culture with their daughter in the celebration of her Fifteenth Birthday, her Quince Anos. The Quinceañeras ritual is valuable for the religious message it sends not only to young people, but also to parents, grandparents, godparents and the entire parish in calling them to prayerfully join with youth in making a commitment to God and the Church. A Mass of Thanksgiving is a part of this celebration. Since this day is very important in the young woman’s life, it is never too early to start thinking about the celebration.
Parents wishing to hold their daughter’s quinceanera at Ste. Anne must present her sacramental record showing that she has received the sacraments of baptism, first eucharist and confirmation. Parents of the quinceanera do not need to be Most Holy Trinity parishioners.
Quinceañeras generally can be scheduled to take place at Most Holy Trinity Church on Saturdays at either 1 p.m. or 3 p.m. Please contact Kristen Andree to discuss scheduling at kristen.andree@steannedetroit.
