Father Joe Reynolds retired as pastor of Holy Trinity Parish on December 1, 2018.   Fr. Joe was ordained to the priesthood in the Roman Church in 1969.  He served as a Roman Catholic priest in several parishes in the Boston, New York, and Philadelphia areas. On October 3, 1998, he was incardinated into the priesthood of the Catholic Apostolic Church of North America (CACINA).  He served in the CACINA parish of St. Francis in Peabody, MA, then was semi-retired due to health reasons.  He became associate pastor of Holy Trinity in 2012 and pastor in 2014.  He will continue as the chancellor of CACINA, a position he has held for 15 years.

To celebrate his retirement, on November 25, 2018, Holy Trinity parishioners joined friends, clergy, and bishops at mass to honor Fr. Joe for his years of service as pastor of Holy Trinity. Nora Biddle from St. Charles parish in Linthicum, Maryland, provided the beautiful piano accompaniment and Joe Biddle, also from St. Charles, lead the congregation in song.  Afterward a reception was held in his honor.  Guests shared stories and sentiments about Fr. Joe and their deep appreciation for all that he has done for Holy Trinity.  Fr. Joe thanked everyone for the loving and supportive CACINA Catholic community that has embraced him so completely.
