Exciting Announcement

We are excited to announce a significant development for Holy Trinity Parish School. Over the last few years, a strategic plan was created for Holy Trinity Parish School that will guide us for the next three years. Through discussions with stakeholders, including parents, parishioners, faculty/staff, PTA, and School Advisory Council, four aspirations were developed. Aspiration 4, “to design and develop facilities that expand our capacity to engage more students”, guided us to explore the feasibility of a performing art center for our students. As a result, Holy Trinity is in the final stages of completing a 10 year lease agreement to take over operations for what is currently known as the Clifton Center. We will start hosting school performances and shows beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. While the auditorium is full of character and charm, we know that a lot of work is needed to modernize the facility, including stage floor refurbishing. Additionally, light, sound, and a track/rigging system will need to be purchased.  

Because the facility was once a school, there are several classrooms available for use. We are currently in the feasibility study phase to determine if Holy Trinity can operate a specialized school for students with specific learning differences. This school would allow children from across the Archdiocese to benefit from specialized instruction while continuing their faith formation in a Catholic School. We see a wonderful opportunity to fulfill our strategic plan aspiration “to enhance our educational experience through more personal engagement of each student and through the implementation of innovative and diverse course offerings.”

A coffee and conversation will be held in the AFR on Wednesday, May 3rd after mass from 9:00 am-10:00 am.  All parents and parishioners are welcome to attend and dialogue with members of the school and parish administration regarding this new development for Holy Trinity.
