BLESSED TRINITY CELEBRATES 50 YEARS

  Blessed Trinity Catholic Church parishoners and guests celebrated 50 years in Frankenmuth with a special Mass and picnic Sunday. Saginaw Diocese Bishop Joseph Cistone, left, was the homilist, joined by Father Robert Byrne, Pastor Reed Swanson from the United Methodist Church and former Blessed Trinity Priest Father Fred Kawka. In this first half-century of its history, Blessed Trinity parishoners  have built two sanctuaries, a fellowship  hall, an education  wing with six classrooms  and a parish cemetery. This community has celebrated 992 baptisms (the highest in a single year was 32 in 2016), 1,503 Confirmations (the highest was 195 in 1995), 1,282 First Communions  (the highest was 51 in 2004), 338 funerals  (the highest was 19 in 2011) and 441 weddings (the  highest was 16 in 2011 and 2014) during their years in Frankenmuth. Father Byrne has served Blessed Trinity since July 1, 2008. His predecessor, Father Kawka, served the congregation from 1995 until his retirement in 2008.                                (News photo)
