Holy Trinity Parish is excited to begin scheduling gift bearers and families for pew clean up for our weekend masses. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Hiedi Touney, Parish Life Director, 515-955-6077 or via e-mail at [email protected]
Gift Bearers: Typically three people carry the gifts (host, wine and treasure) forward to the priest during the offertory. When you arrive at the church prior to mass please inform an usher that you are present. When the offertory hymn begins please go to the back of the church where you will find the gifts. Once the priest begins walking to the bottom step of the sanctuary begin processing forward. Once you have given the gifts to the priest please make a profound bow (bow from the waist).
Pew Clean up includes: picking up and throwing away any garbage, placing personal items left behind in the lost and found, place kneelers in the up position and place missalettes and hymnals orderly in their holders (CC= missalette behind and hymnal in front SH = missalettes in holders, horizontally, and books stacked in the center of the pews).
