Lord God, Holy Lover of my soul, when you come into my soul, all that is within me will rejoice. You are my glory and the exultation of my heart. You are my hope and refuge in the day of my trouble. Set me free from all evil passions, and heal my heart of all inordinate affections, cure and cleanse me within, that I may be made fit to love, courageous to suffer, steady to persevere. Nothing is sweeter than love, nothing more courageous, nothing fuller nor better in heaven and earth; because love is born of God, and cannot rest but in God, above all created things. Let me love you more than myself, and love myself except for you, and in you all that truly love you, as the law of love commands, shining out from yourself.

A Note from Mrs. Longden

One time of the week that everyone in our school looks forward to is the days when we have our school Mass. This is a relaxing time in our week when the entire school comes together for worship. The students enjoy their participation in the Mass, and they especially like it when their class is in charge of the Mass.

Catholic schools get at least an hour of complete focus on our faith as part of the regular school week. At Holy Trinity, our Mass times are a priority. We invite everyone to join us for this prayerful experience each week. Those school parents who are not Catholic are always welcome to join us. The children sit up front with their teachers, and all others can sit in the back. Participate as you are comfortable and as appropriate.

Welcome Father Patrick

Students and staff made a special sign to welcome Father Patrick to Holy Trinity School!

It is a blessing having Father Patrick here working with us at HTS!



Father Patrick has picked a theme for this year for our school.


The vision is to inspire a movement of Catholics across the United States who are healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist - and who are then sent out on mission "for the life of the world".

We are in the year of Eucharistic Revival—this means we are being called to revive our faith in Jesus in the Eucharist. The word revive means “to restore to life or consciousness.” If we have let our love, our trust and hope in Jesus grow cold, or worse yet, lukewarm, He is now calling us to run back to Him with everything we have. He wants our mistakes, our doubts, our fears and shortcomings. If we don’t give them to Him, how can He make something even greater out of those things, out of us and our lives? How can we become saints if we don’t fully trust in the One we are hoping to spend eternity with?

Let’s ask a simpler question—do we have a relationship with Him? Yes! Because each person has a relationship with God, our Creator, whether they participate in it or not. And of course God allows you to enter into that freely, because He doesn’t want to force anyone to love Him—He is too much of a gentleman for that. But what does your relationship with Him look like?

Hello families,

The basketball season will be here before we know it! School and Parish boys and girls in 5th-8th grade are invited to play Wildcat basketball this upcoming season. We will be hosting a parent meeting Sept 25th at 6pm at the HTS Cafe. Whether your child is for sure playing, or you are still deciding, we hope you’re able to come to the meeting. Coaches and athletic directors will be there to answer questions.

Below are the forms needed in order to participate in Wildcat Athletics. They must be completed in their entirety before the season starts, so we encourage you to please complete them and bring them to the meeting, so it's one less thing to think about later.
