Catholic Schools Week 2016

Tomorrow we kick off our annual celebration of Catholic Schools Week, a week set apart to celebrate our mission as a Catholic school.  As always, we have a series of events to mark this week:

Celebrating our Faith and our Religious - We will close Catholic Schools Week with a special Mass and reception.  We have invited all local men and women religious to join us for Mass as the Church concludes the Year of Religious Life.  Many of these men and women work(ed) in Catholic schools (including Trinity High School) so it is quite fitting we honor them at this Mass.  The reception will follow the Mass.

In addition, the freshman class is composing the daily morning prayers and the sophomores are composing the daily afternoon prayers.
