Dear Celtic Families,

We are excited to announce the start of our 2018-2019 Father Charles Davis Annual Appeal. Our Annual Appeal is a vital part of our school’s continued success and we rely on the generosity and support of all our families and friends to ensure that Holy Trinity Catholic High School continues to be a beacon of light to all of our students.

Our Annual Appeal is named after Fr. Charles Davis, the beloved Pastor who helped establish our school. In celebration of his mission, we are committed to achieving 100% participation from our school community in this year’s Annual Appeal. Gifts to the Fr. Charles Davis Annual Appeal support our Tuition Assistance program. No gift is too small because every gift helps a student! The Annual Appeal allows us to make sure no one is denied a Catholic education due to financial need.

Gifts to our Annual Appeal can be made by a one-time gift or by a pledge paid monthly. Your Annual Appeal letter will be arriving soon in the mail. However, gifts can be made online by clicking on the link below. We humbly ask that you consider supporting our school and help us achieve our 100% family participation rate.

Please join us in keeping Holy Trinity Catholic High School strong by making your gift to the Father Charles Davis Annual Fund Appeal.

Fr. Charlie was a man who made you feel like you were the only person in the room. Please enjoy this reflection from Mrs. Donna Reilly recounting the first time she meet Fr. Charlie.
We are excited to announce that Holy Trinity Catholic High School is hosting a small business vendor Christmas Bazaar on Sunday, December 2nd, from 10am to 4pm. Come do your Christmas shopping and support our local small businesses! Silent Auction ~ Arts and Crafts ~ Concessions. For more information or if you would like to be a vendor, contact HolyTrintiyFestivals@gmail.com or visit our website: www.holytrinitychs.org/christmas-bazaar

All non-perishable food items must be brought to Holy Trinity Catholic High School beginning Monday, November 5, through Thursday, November 15. All food collected will be delivered on Friday, November 16, to the Temple Mall.

We are asking that students bring food items according to the following breakdown:

If you have any questions about the food drive, please contact Mrs. Sanders.

Blessings for all you do help feed the hungry.

EIM training

Ethics and Integrity Ministry (EIM) In an effort to protect our children, the Diocese of Austin mandates that all individuals who have contact with our children must be in compliance with the Ethics and Integrity in Ministry Policy, which equips each of us with the tools and knowledge to protect our children from possible abuse and perpetrators. All parents MUST complete this process to volunteer at the school.

Registration is required through the Diocesan. In order to register for an EIM Workshop, you must first complete the volunteer application, “eAppsDB”. Once you have attended the workshop please submit a copy of the certificate to the school office. This workshop is for new parents and those who are in need of the refresher course.
