A message from Mrs. Cuevas:

March is already here!

Spring is in the air...and so is all of the pollen!

I want to remind, encourage and maybe even challenge you to make this the BEST LENT EVER. Our church gives us Lent as a time of renewal and spiritual growth. This is the perfect time to deepen your relationship with our Lord. Ask your children about the 3 pillars of Lent and encourage them to choose one to focus on as a family until Easter.

Registration is going great!

We are very thankful for all of the parents who are on the ball with registration. We currently have 95% of our returning students completely registered, and we have 37 new student applicants waiting to be accepted. Space is becoming limited, so please complete your registration ASAP! We are adding another section of 3rd grade this upcoming year as a result of our growing enrollment. We are only one grade level away from having 2 sections in each grade level.

We are reaching our full capacity very fast, and it is exciting!

We are very thankful for the huge success of Coastal Charm this year and want to again thank everyone that supported, volunteered, sponsored, and attended the event. It was truly an amazing night to see our community come together to support HTCS. Once the final numbers are calculated, we will let everyone know how much we actually raised and how the funds will be allocated. I can not express enough how important this fundraiser is to our school and how much we appreciate our parents, grandparents, and local businesses for all of the support!

I have inserted a copy of next year's School Calendar. More details to come after final approval for the Diocese of Biloxi. Please take a close look at our March school calendar below for the full list of events, and plan to attend at least one event with your children!

Pax et bonum,

Haleigh Cuevas

Defined by USCCB (Unites States Conference of Catholic Bishops):

Lent is a 40 day season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday. It's a period of preparation to celebrate the Lord's Resurrection at Easter. During Lent, we seek the Lord in prayer by reading Sacred Scripture; we serve by giving alms; and we practice self-control through fasting. We are called not only to abstain from luxuries during Lent, but to a true inner conversion of heart as we seek to follow Christ's will more faithfully. We recall the waters of baptism in which we were also baptized into Christ's death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ.

Many know of the tradition of abstaining from meat on Fridays during Lent, but we are also called to practice self-discipline and fast in other ways throughout the season. Contemplate the meaning and origins of the Lenten fasting tradition in this reflection. In addition, the giving of alms is one way to share God's gifts—not only through the distribution of money, but through the sharing of our time and talents. As St. John Chrysostom reminds us: "Not to enable the poor to share in our goods is to steal from them and deprive them of life. The goods we possess are not ours, but theirs." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2446).

In Lent, the baptized are called to renew their baptismal commitment as others prepare to be baptized through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, a period of learning and discernment for individuals who have declared their desire to become Catholics.

Holy Trinity Catholic Elementary School Song


Holy Trinity, Father, Spirit, Son

We come together here as one

To pray, to learn, and to grow

In the loving kindness that you know.

Come with us to work and play together

We are all a part of one big family,

In a school filled with joy, spirit, peace

Our love will grow as you can see.

Repeat Chorus

Sharing God’s love as a community

Each day we work to build a unity

Caring and loving others as we go

Just as Jesus taught us years ago.

Repeat Chorus
