Slovak Christmas carols part of Holy Trinity tradition
The choir at Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church at 370 South St. in Pottstown will be singing a selection of Slovak Christmas carols before and during both the 5 PM Christmas Eve Mass and the 10 AM Christmas Day Mass.
Holy Trinity was my mom’s church when she first moved to Pottstown in the 8th grade. She and her parents came to Pottstown from Mt. Carmel when her father got a job with Bethlehem Steel; her mom made children’s clothing in a factory across E. Third Street from St. Al’s.
Growing up, I remember occasionally attending Mass at Holy Trinity – maybe on Christmas Eve, now that I think about it. Like many Eastern European and Russian Orthodox churches, Holy Trinity has a much more ornate interior than that at St. Al’s, our home parish. I was in awe of it as a kid and look forward to feeling that awe again tonight.
Wishing all Positively Pottstown readers a blessed Christmas!
