PRAYER FOR GENEROSITY
by ST. IGNATIUS
Teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as you deserve. To give and not to count the cost, To fight and not to heed the wounds, To toil and not to seek for rest, To labor and not to seek reward, Save that of knowing that I do your will. AMEN
Tithing symbolizes and helps express our commitment to Christ and the Church.
Reminder for everyone who have made pledges to the Diocesan Fund and ADA campaigns on behalf of MHT, please continue to send your pledge fulfillments directly to the address indicated on the Statement you are receiving.
These pledge fulfillments need not pass through the Parish collection baskets.
Thank you for all the help and kind assistance that you continue to give back.
Next week, our parish will take up a second collection for St. Vincent de Paul. Funds from this collection provide financial support to the needy in our community and help give food to the hungry. Please bring your envelopes next week and give generously to St. Vincent de Paul.

Those responsible for the spiritual and material goods of the Church are entrusted with the stewardship of others’ gifts, and are ultimately responsible to the Lord. As a faithful steward, the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Jose is committed to maintaining the highest standards of conduct and ethics. The mission of the Church requires no less.
To this end, the Diocese of San Jose has partnered with EthicsPoint to provide a confidential method to hear suggestions, concerns or reports of financial misconduct. The EthicsPoint Hotline (1-888- 325-7863) allows parishioners, volunteers, employees, vendors and others to make confidential reports regarding the mismanagement of parish or school property, cash and all other assets. Reportable are also issues of apparent disregard of policies pertaining to the proper management of these assets. Suspected unethical behavior by employees, volunteers, staff, trustees, officers, directors, agents or contractors of the Diocese should also be made to EthicsPoint. All reports may be made anonymously.
It is the hope of the Diocese that EthicsPoint will assist in the protection of all who interact with the parishes, schools, chancery and other diocesan agencies.
EthicsPoint accepts reports of financial misconduct through its website or its Hotline: 1 - 888-325-7863. A complete report will be made to diocesan leadership, so that leadership may review and provide feedback and resolution for the issues that are reported.
Please direct any questions that you may have about EthicsPoint or reporting concerns to Teresa Conville, Diocesan Compliance and Parish Financial Services Director at 408- 983-0241 or email@example.com. All reports may be made anonymously.

In these troubling times, we see more and more families and homeless in need of help. We find it difficult to see children living in home environments without the basic necessities that some people take for granted or homeless men and women living in squalled conditions. Your continued support enabled us to help those less fortunate by giving our needy families and homeless people of our communities back their dignity and respect.
As of July 31, 2017, the parishioners of Most Holy Trinity Church have helped St. Vincent de Paul-Most Holy Trinity Conference in providing variety assistance to 621 family members in the amount of $47,607. In addition, our faithful volunteers worked tirelessly to prepare food for more than 2,300 families and homeless people monthly from Most Holy Trinity food pantry. Again, this would not be possible without your donations and the sharing of your time and talents.
We would like to thank each one of you for your kind generosity.
