January 7, 2016
Sunday, January 31-February 6, 2016 is National Catholic Schools Week and the theme is Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service. The theme for this annual celebration of Catholic education reflects who we are and what our mission is at Holy Trinity Mountainside Campus. We are a faith based school, a community dedicated to providing the best education for the children. They are taught about God, and how to live through prayer and the daily practice of our faith through service to the community.
The tradition of Catholic education is strong at Holy Trinity, and we will be celebrating our 100 year anniversary in 2016. The faith and academic excellence provided at Holy Trinity is the foundation for the children’s success in school and in life as they become strong, well educated, Catholic citizens. The support and partnership of the parishes, families and faculty provide a unique environment that allows the children to be nurtured and to thrive in the true tradition of excellence in Catholic education.
The Catholic Schools Week committee has been working this fall to plan a very special celebration as we enter our centennial year. We ask that you join us during the week as a volunteer and as a witness to this dynamic community; come to our Mass at one of our parishes, have your child wear their spirit wear or school colors on Monday and PJs on Wednesday for the service project. Please come and join us in the festivities of Grandparents/ Special Persons Day on Friday. The packet has all the information you need and be sure to ask if you need more information.
I am privileged to celebrate Catholic Schools Week with you and your families and I appreciate the many hours you give to make it all possible.
