Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Faith is at the heart of a Catholic education. It is the primary goal of HTS to form students in faith that they may come to know and love Christ. Catholic Identity is integral to every aspect of our school and not simply an addition or supplement. Our Catholic identity is expressed in the daily experiences and interaction of students, faculty, staff, and administrators. It permeates the spirit and climate of our school. It is through daily prayer, prayer services, school liturgies and the sacraments, morals, values, social interactions, and service to others in which the Holy Trinity Catholic School expresses our identity and reflects Jesus’ message of love. We are committed to share the faith with your child and serve as role models but as parents you must do the same for you are the primary educators of the faith.

You have chosen to educate your child in a Catholic school. As a parent you need to lead by example – actions speak louder than words. Here are some ways you can be a role model for your child.

  • Take your child to mass and receive the sacraments regularly.
  • Pray together as a family.
  • Serve others as Jesus did.
  • Demonstrate forgiveness, kindness and understanding.
  • Resolve conflict peacefully.
  • Demonstrate on going learning of the scripture and church beliefs.

“What good is the warmth of summer without the chill of winter.” 

John Steinbeck

Happy New Year and welcome back to all our families. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a restful holiday break. I look forward to getting back to our regular school routine and starting the New Year off with a bang. As we approach the end of the 1st semester I want to say thank you for all you do for your child’s education. As a faculty and staff we appreciate that the children are prepared and ready to learn each day.

Prayer: A new year brings a new resolve for improving our lives and others. One way in which we can do this is to pray together as a family. Prayer is the foundation of the Catholic home and is one of the best ways to help your family thrive. We are living in a time which is full of trials and obstacles that can sometimes lead us to question faith.

When you pray together as a family, each member learns what it means to be intimate with God. It is a time they are communicating with God and it should be taken very seriously. While there is deep theological meaning in prayer, it doesn’t have to be complicated and difficult. It’s something anyone can do anywhere at any time. Teach your children that prayers do not have to be long and formal. When you are together, offer up short, spontaneous, conversational prayers. Make generous use of words like please and thank you. Do everything you can to help your children love Jesus. Cultivate an awareness of God’s presence in the details of everyday life.
