The Mission of Holy Trinity Catholic High School
Holy Trinity Catholic High School seeks to form the Christian Leaders of Tomorrow; we strive to develop the intellect, educate the heart, and form the character of each student by giving witness to Gospel values.
At Holy Trinity Catholic High School we believe communication between the school and community is crucial to making our students successful. This Weekly Bulletin will detail any announcements and events that are taking place the upcoming week. Please look for this bulletin every Monday morning to be sent to your email address on file.
We are excited to announce that at our 2018 Celtic Gala, the Class Baskets were bid on for an amazing $940. The basket that earned the highest bid was the Senior Basket (Superbowl theme). Therefore the Senior Class has won a dress down day complete with Wings and Pizza and a surprise treat. The date is TBD.
A special thanks to all the families who contributed so generously to the class baskets:
Ann Marie Boone
To all the parents who worked so hard on this project, you are greatly appreciated!!
An extra special thanks to Kiyeon Glandon and Violet Martinez for setting up the baskets at the Gala, and to Patty Mottram, Diane Boore, Sarah Linz, Corey Gokingco, and Rosanna Brown, for their tireless work in coordinating the creation of the basket. And finally, we thank Joanna Laxton and Sue Fetherman who gifted Holy Trinity with their ceaseless efforts, generous time, and incredible talents to bring us such a splendid and successful Gala. Thank you everyone! Go Celtics!
Senior Class News:

Dear Celtic Families and Friends,
We are hosting our annual OPEN HOUSE on Sunday, February 25th, from 12:30 to 2:30. All families and friends are welcome to attend and help share information Holy Trinity and meet prospective families.
The best advertisement for our school is Word-of-Mouth. We are asking each family to spread the word about our great school and invite friends who are curious about Holy Trinity to attend our Open House.
If you have a business or are part of a workplace or an organization that would allow one of our flyers to be posted, please let us know and we will send flyers home with your child. We also have 4x6 postcards that can be handed out or placed on a counter for distribution. We would be happy to provide you with either based on the nature of the business where they can be displayed.
Thank you so much for everything you do to support and help grow our great school!
Spirit Day at Wings Pizza N Things
On Wednesday, February 21, Holy Trinity will be hosting a Spirit Day at Wings Pizza N Things. The Dent family will be donating a portion of the profits after expenses for sales for the day, which includes dine in and carry out. Please plan to attend so that we can have a successful fundraiser!
Dear Holy Trinity Students and Parents,
During Lent, we focus on prayer, fasting and alms giving.
At the Lent retreat on Wednesday, February 28th, we are asking all students to bring in items from the attached list to benefit Helping Hands Ministry of Belton.
Helping Hands is an outreach to children and adults who need assistance.
The list that the ministry sent says summer food, however, the most pressing need at this time is for children who need food during spring break. These children are in situations where all of their needs are not met when school is not in session.
Please look at the attached list and have your students bring them to the Lent retreat. If you want to bring them ahead of time, please bring them to the Theology room and we will take them to the retreat.
An administrator at Helping Hands is going to make a presentation on the ministry during the retreat and we will have the items there to give to her.
Thank you for your generosity.
We are looking to update a few of our nonfiction offerings by acquiring books published later than 2000. Used in good shape is absolutely fine.
** a set of encyclopedias published later than 2002. (We have World Book 2002)
** nonfiction books, like reference or college texts published 2000 or later in the sciences, economics, maths, advertising, journalism....
** how to, craft, repair books appropriate to high school: how to play guitar, woodworking, found art, seasonal art, sewing, event planning, quinceaneras, car repair, and maintenance,
**Nonfiction sports books, male and female, training, inspirational, biographical...**nonfiction informational books about other countries
Annual Fund Appeal
For more than 20 years, Holy Trinity Catholic High School has educated hundreds of young people, preparing them to be people of Faith and productive citizens. To remain a competitive, faith-based, college preparatory school we rely on our community of parents, grandparents, Board members, faculty, staff, alumni, former parents, and friends for their support.
To celebrate our 20 years, we are committed to achieving 100% participation from our school community. Gifts to the Fr. Charles Davis Annual Appeal support our Tuition Assistance program. No gift is too small, because every gift helps a student! We have set our tuition so that we can remain affordable to our families, but tuition revenue covers only a portion of what it costs to educate students at Holy Trinity. The annual appeal helps keep our school affordable to families while allowing us to make sure no one is denied a Catholic education due to financial need.
At Holy Trinity we are challenged to continue our mission to educate the Christian Leaders of Tomorrow. We firmly believe that we can and will meet this challenge, but we need your help to be successful! Please join us in keeping Holy Trinity Catholic High School strong by making your gift to the Father Charles Davis Annual Fund Appeal.
