Dear Celtic Families and Friends,

We’re excited to announce that we are participating in #GivingTuesday, or the #iGiveCatholic Campaign, our nation’s first Catholic day of giving! This year it will be on November 28th from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Your generous support will make a meaningful difference in our mission of educating the Christian Leaders of Tomorrow.

We have chosen to participate in iGiveCatholic this year specifically to fill an unexpected need born from recent events. Due to the natural disasters that have affected our state, the foundations that historically support our school with grants will be focusing their aid on those areas most affected by these disasters. While we support these foundations in their efforts to bring aid to those most in need, this has created a gap in our own Tuition Assistance program. We are therefore participating in iGiveCatholic to ask our community to help us fill this unexpected gap.

On November 28, 2017 (#iGiveCatholic Giving Day), your $25 gift will allow us to provide Tuition Assistance to those students who remain most in need of our support. Every gift received on #iGiveCatholic giving day will go directly towards filling the gap left by disaster relief priorities. By visiting iGiveCatholic.org, the online giving website for #iGiveCatholic, you can make a difference with your gift to our school.

Starting November 10th, you can pledge your gift to our school by going to https://igivecatholic.org/designee/holy-trinity-catholic-high-school-temple-tx-1. Pledges will be activated on November 28, 2017.

Follow us on Facebook so you can share in the excitement of our Catholic day of giving and remember to give Catholic on #GivingTuesday, November 28.

Every gift matters!

Yours in Christ,

Isabelle Brogan

Director of Advancement and Admissions

Food Drive

Beginning Monday, November 6, 2017, Student Council will be holding the annual food drive competition between the classes. We are asking all the students to participate in the annual "Food for Families" food drive.

Please see flyer below for complete details about what each class is being asked to bring. Last year we collected 1,771 pounds of food for an average of about 19.25 pounds per student. Let's see if we can beat last year's collection amount.

Annual Fund Appeal

As we begin each school year filled with hope and determination to make it the best it can be. It is with the same degree of hope and determination that we open our Father Charles Davis Annual Fund Appeal, a vital part of our school’s continued success.

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.


Yours in Christ,

Blake Evans,

Save the Date: Celebrating Catholic Schools Week Awards Ceremony

The Office of Catholic Schools will hold its 2018 Celebrating Catholic Schools Dinner and Awards Ceremony on January 27, 2018, to recognize our Catholic schools and honor those who serve and support our schools. The purpose of this event is to recognize those individuals whose dedication enables schools to accomplish their missions and good works.

I am pleased to announce that this year’s honorees for Holy Trinity Catholic High School are Dr.and Mrs. Gene Terry. The Terrys have been involved with Holy Trinity CHS since it was founded in 1997. Dr. Terry has served on the board of trustees for over 20 years, and Mrs. Terry served as principal at Holy Trinity CHS for 6 years. They have given countless hours of time and financial resources to the school over the past twenty years. Their active involvement has helped us thrive through tough economic times. Their generosity and time given to the school are unmatched and greatly appreciated.

If you would like to join us in honoring the Terrys for their dedication to Catholic Education, please call the school and make your reservation (254-771-0787) and go to the following link to purchase your tickets: https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=3e3169

The event will take place at 6:00 p.m. at the Hyatt at Town Lake in Austin.

As a kickoff to National Catholic Schools Week, the 10th Annual "Honor Roll" Awards

Dinner will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2018 featuring America's Next Top Model turned Role Model, Leah Darrow.

This annual semi-formal dinner honors the “unsung” heroes at each of our 22 Catholic schools and raises much-needed funds for Catholic school families who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford a Catholic education for their child. Over $900,000 has been returned to schools to increase accessibility to Catholic education for so many families.

We are so appreciative of the generosity!!

Support Catholic Education in Central Texas and join us on January 27th!
