Sacraments and Funerals
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. The parents will be asked to take a baptismal prep class. Please contact the parish office for more information and to make arrangements.

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. Quinceañeras generally can be scheduled to take place at Most Holy Trinity Church on Saturdays at either 12 noon or 2 p.m. Please contact the parish office for more information and to discuss scheduling at 313-965-4450.
