“Summertime is always the best of what might be.”
It is hard to believe how quickly the school year has passed and come to an end. I would like to thank you for your faith, trust, and commitment to the mission of Holy Trinity Catholic School. It is your belief in the Catholic education values that help us to sustain our school. I respect the sacrifices each family makes to send their child to HTS, and we will continue to put your child first in everything we do! This was a very busy year and you, as partners in education, played a great role in making it a success!
It has been a lot of fun working with your child(ren) this year. As parents you should be extremely proud of your children as they have grown so much spiritually, academically and socially. Each year that goes by makes me realize how fortunate I am to be the Principal of Holy Trinity Catholic School. It is a special place with amazing kids, supportive parents and a staff that puts the needs of children first.
Please be sure to take time as a family to talk, play, and pray together. During the summer, please encourage your children to continue reading, learning and questioning. Time at the park, in the backyard, or at the beach can be a great place to get lost in a book or let the imagination run wild. Have your child keep a summer journal to practice their writing skills and record memories. Providing a little educational time will help ensure a smooth transition in the fall.READ MORE

"The Blessed Mother Mary spent nearly every day of her life just like millions of other women who look after their families, raising their children, and taking care of their houses. Mary sanctifies the ordinary, everyday things like looking after those in need, and visiting
The Queen of Heaven is so revered for her relationship with Christ and her love and guidance of her earthly children. The Catholic Church has dedicated the month of May in her honor. Plan time to say the rosary as a family, and pray a novena, but the best way to honor the Blessed Mother is to honor, love and worship her Son.
"Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever."
I want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of our Holy Trinity Mothers and Grandmothers! Enjoy your special day.READ MORE

Lent concludes with the Holy Triduum, which is one liturgical observance spread over three days.
Holy Thursday (April 13) celebrates the day when Christ instituted the Eucharist, anticipating the events of Good Friday, but only after he had washed the feet of his disciples, demonstrating that a life of service, not domination, is the hallmark of those called to "feed His sheep" (John 21:17).
Good Friday is when Jesus is crucified. It is called "good," because Christ offers his body and blood on the cross to make things right again between humanity and God in light of our sinfulness. He dies to redeem us all. He is the perfect sacrifice which brings salvation to the whole world. He is placed in a tomb, which is sealed with a heavy stone, demonstrating that he had indeed died, so that God's power could be clearly recognized by those who believe.
Holy Saturday/Easter begins with the service of light, beginning with the lighting of the fire, symbolizing the light that Christ brings to us all. Those seeking full communion or entrance into the Catholic Church receive full initiation through Baptism, Confirmation, and reception of the Eucharist.
Our children have begun their Lenten journey at school by receiving ashes, attending Reconciliation, Stations of the Cross, Lenten Retreat, and participating in the Seder Meal. The Lenten journey is almost complete; please help them to continue on this journey by attending the Holy Week services on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. Easter is a time of great joy in the Church as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and His victory over death.
