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.
We invite parishioners who have experience in landscaping, construction, engineering, computer, maintenance, and planning to join us in this important ministry. If the mission and the responsibilities interest you, please contact those listed below. Thank you.

This year's gifts will be provided to family children 18 years and younger. You may donate clothes, toys or gift cards. Gift cards should be in increments of $25.00. If someone donates more than one gift card, we ask that you do not exceed a total value of $100.00.
Men's Homeless Shelter will open on January 2, 2018 and end the morning of April 9th. Most Holy Trinity is partnering with St. Francis of Assisi to shelter 15 homeless men's. St. Francis of Assisi will begin the sheltering and the sheltering will end at Most Holy Trinity. The shelter will open at 7:00 PM and 7:00 AM. MHT will begin sheltering on January 8th. We are looking for volunteers to help at the shelter. We need volunteers to help with evening set-up, food preparation and severing, clean-up, and evening monitoring from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM. We have overnight monitor covered. If you are unable to volunteer your services and wish to help, we are accepting donation to help pay for the overnight monitoring services and other needed items such as sock, shirts, pants, plates, bowls, utensils, coffee cups, drinking cups, and napkins.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. All reports may be made anonymously.
