Good St. Joseph

Yesterday the Church celebrated the Solemnity of St. Joseph, the husband of Mary.  St. Joseph is the patron saint of the Diocese of Manchester and the namesake of our first predecessor high school, St. Joseph High School for Boys.  I also have a strong devotion to St. Joseph as I was having a hard time finding a job after I graduated from college and I came across a prayer to St. Joseph for employment. I prayed the prayer for a few days and I got a job later that week.

To mark the day, we came together as a school community for Mass.  The celebrant of the Mass was Bishop John McCormack, the bishop emeritus of Manchester.  Bishop McCormack was a good friend to Trinity High School during his tenure as bishop and we are always happy to have him back on occasion to pray with us.  At the end of Mass, he granted the students a dress down day for today, something they always appreciate.  There was one already scheduled for today (a paid one to benefit NHS) so we will mark his dress down day next Friday.

Mr. Mailloux '72 and the Champion Cheer Team and their trophy!
Following Mass, our athletic director Mr. Polak recognized the winter athletes and teams who had major accomplishments during the winter sports season, including our cheer team who won the Division III championship!  Congratulations to all the athletes for representing us so well this season.
