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 Friday afternoon to be sent to your email address on file.

First Week Down!

We have had a great start to the school year! Our girls cross country team finished 1st at their meet last Friday and yesterday, our girls' volleyball team is playing very well, and football looked really good through their first two scrimmages. Throughout the week we celebrated all school Mass, had adoration, family prayer, and had a liturgy of the word service. Forensics is getting geared up, and most of the school clubs have had meetings this week to plan the school year out. Classes are in full swing, and we are ready for a great school year! Please keep the school in your prayers as we venture on. If you have any questions about anything please let us know.


In Christ,

Blake Evans

Principal

A Note from Mr. Mosmeyer

Each year, I half-jokingly make sure the students know that my birthday is Sept. 1. I tell them I want Starbucks cards and G-2 Pens! And, the students and parents have always been generous to me at my birthday and to all of us at Christmas, etc. However, the events of this weekend have made me reflect on my annual, rather selfish, coffee fund-raiser.


As many of you know, I have strong family ties to the Coastal Bend area, the area hit by Hurricane Harvey this weekend. I have relatives in Ingleside and Portland. I was born in Corpus Christi and grew up in Victoria. My mother still lives in Victoria, and she purchased a vacation/retirement home in Holiday Beach, just north of Rockport. At this time, though I know my mother and other family members are safe, I do not know if their homes are. I do know that most businesses and homes have severe damage.


So, here's what I want for my birthday. I want to help a Catholic school in that area. I will be taking up a collection for Sacred Heart Catholic School in Rockport. The school and church are located in the heart of the area that you may have seen on the news. It is highly likely that both the school and church took some damage.


I will be contacting Kathy Barnes, the principal of Sacred Heart, and Fr. Ray Yrias, the pastor, to find out how they weathered the storm. If, by some miracle, they came through unscathed, I will make sure that our donations go to some organization that can put them to good use to help the Rockport area get back on its feet.


I certainly have appreciated the generosity of students and parents over the years on my birthday. I hope that you will consider giving again, but this time, I would greatly appreciate you joining me in this effort to help a community that is close to my heart.


If you have any questions, please e-mail me at cmosmeyer@holytrinitychs.org.

Sweet Monday!!!

Free sweets are passed out to the students and employees during lunch for all of their hard work and dedication to the school with leftovers placed in the teacher's lounge unless otherwise noted. If you can provide 2 dozen of some type of sweet treat, please email me at kiyeonglandon@gmail.com so that we have an idea of how much is being brought. The students love fruits and healthy snacks as well!


Please drop off the sweets at the front office on the morning of Monday, August 28th.

Please put your name on your treats so that we can give proper thanks and keep track of the parent volunteer hours.

School Pictures

School Pictures on Thursday, August 31st. Wear Mass uniform both Thursday and Friday. The photographer has asked that students wear sweaters/jackets if the student has the uniform jacket or sweater.


Senior makeups for portraits will also be the same day.

EIM training

Ethics and Integrity Ministry (EIM) In an effort to protect our children, the Diocese of Austin mandates that all individuals who have contact with our children must be in compliance with the Ethics and Integrity in Ministry Policy, which equips each of us with the tools and knowledge to protect our children from possible abuse and perpetrators. All parents MUST complete this process to volunteer at the school.


Registration is required through the Diocesan. In order to register for an EIM Workshop, you must first complete the volunteer application, “eAppsDB”. Once you have attended the workshop please submit a copy of the certificate to the school office. This workshop is for new parents and those who are in need of the refresher course.

Students Enjoy the Solar Eclipse on Monday

Thank you to the Barkis family for providing the glasses!
