Saint Francis Inn

This morning 9 Trinity students and Mr. Sheehan '79 and Mrs. Trachim, both of our math department, headed out to Philadelphia for a week of mercy at Saint Francis Inn in Philadelphia.  We have been doing summer trips to Saint Francis Inn for years and it has become one of the most popular events we run.

I will be heading down early on Wednesday to join up with the group and will drive back with everyone on Saturday.  My flight is at 5:30am and I will arrive at 6:50am, just in time for Mass at 8:30am and to have a full day there.

Please keep these students in your prayers for safe travel and for a wonderful experience showing mercy to the poorest of the poor.  It is quite fitting that they are beginning their trip today on what would ordinarily be the Feast of Saint Clare of Assisi (it being a Sunday, it gets trumped this year), one of the first followers of Francis of Assisi.

The students going to Philadelphia are:

Camden Brown '14
Beatrice Cheung '14
Allison Doherty '14
Shaun Dunphey '14
Griffin Frasier '14
Alex Higgins '14
Joe Lamontagne '14
Michael Toomey '14
Athena Valkanos '14
