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.
Food for thought
Parents' Prayer for their Children
Thank you for the blessing of our children.
Help us to love them as You love them.
Help us to help them grow in holiness so they can be closer to You.
Help us to live as you desire us to live so that we can model for our children what it is to be a true man or woman of God
We ask You for:
The wisdom to counsel them;
The patience to teach them;
The humility to entrust them to your care.
Grant us the grace to desire for our children what you desire for them, trusting that Your Will is the source of their happiness and fulfillment. Whatever vocation you are calling them to: married, religious, or single life, help them to give their hearts joyfully to you.
Please help us to grow as a family in the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love:
A strong faith so that we may lead others to grow closer to you by our example;
Fervent hope in Your victory over sin and death when we are tempted to despair;
Perfect love to to give of ourselves for the good of one another.
Finally, guide us in teaching our children to know and love You and Your Church as the surest path to their eternal home with You.
Mother of Divine Love,
Pray for us.
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 Friday afternoon to be sent to your email address on file.

Ms. Dowling is offering knitting and crochet lessons after school Tuesday through Thursday. We will be meeting in the library from 4-5 pm. If you are curious about the baffling, yet useful art of crochet, or find the creation of beautiful textiles using only sticks and string downright mystifying, drop by! All skill levels are welcome, from beginner to expert. After we’ve learned a few simple techniques, we will be making charity items for donation.
Bring a hook and compatible yarn. If you do not have these items or unsure of what to purchase, these may be borrowed during the meeting.
The Wildflower Guild
The Wildflower Guild is looking for additional Juniors and Sophomore Boys for the Escort program. Sophomore boys will have etiquette, dance lessons and socials. Junior Boys will have socials, dance lessons and escort a Belle to the Wildflower Ball. Participation in this organization looks great on college applications. Any boys interested in joining, please contact me as soon as possible. The season is already underway.
Message From Mrs. Allen:
Our first book promotion of the year will be in conjunction with Hispanic Heritage Month. Read a book from our library on Hispanic culture, literature, history, poetry, geography or even something in your favorite genre, by a Hispanic author to earn an extra dress down day from Mr. Evans and some kind of home baked goodies from Mrs. Allen. Broaden your horizons! You'll be glad you did!
The library is open throughout the day for quick checkouts on the clipboard with a pass from your teacher.
