Holy Trinity Catholic School -- November 16th, 2023
A Note from Mrs. Longden
We thank you, God, for blessing our school. Holy Trinity Catholic School has always had wonderful teachers and staff members who believe in the mission of Catholic education. We have had terrific families who seek out our school as an extension of their family in teaching the faith. We have had amazing supporters who donate and make sure the school has what it needs to provide for the work to be done. In doing God’s work here on earth, God provides now and has, from the beginning, gifted Holy Trinity with good people.
In this time of thankfulness and realizing our blessings, we thank everyone who is and has been a part of Holy Trinity Catholic School. We thank God above all!
“Live in the Moment.” This is something we constantly hear, and say that we try to follow, but how often do we actually accomplish this? “Never let yourself think that because God has given you many things to do for Him: pressing routine jobs, a life full up with duties and demands of a very practical sort that all these needs separate you from communion with Him. God is always coming to you in the Sacrament of the Present Moment. Meet and receive Him there with gratitude in that sacrament; however unexpected its outward form may be, receive Him in every sight and sound, joy, pain, opportunity and sacrifice.” ~Evelyn Underhill
Take some time this week and reflect on these thoughts:
What is distracting you from the present moment in daily life?
Do you have a favorite way to bring yourself back to the present moment?
What battles are you fighting that God isn’t asking you to fight that are costing your attention?
How is my current relationship with my content and media consumption?
How does the Lord want to reorder my time?
Where in my life do I feel hurried? Am I the source of hurry or is the source external? What specific duties of my vocation am I avoiding or too distracted to fulfill?
Catholic Schools Walk
Thank you to all who came out and enjoyed the food trucks and did the walk with us!
Great fun was had by all!
The money we raise at Holy Trinity will be used for specialized field trips, bussing for field trips, music department risers, and for our library remodel.
