Masses and Prayer Services
Each day prayers and particular prayer intentions of the school community are said at the beginning and closing of the school day. Staff and students have the opportunity to participate in school Masses and prayer services offered throughout the school year. There are four Masses throughout the year which include an Opening Mass, Advent, Easter, and Closing Mass. During Lent the Blessed Trinity community participates in an Ash Wednesday Service and Stations of the Cross on Holy Thursday.
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Opportunity is provided for students and staff to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Advent and Lent. Before receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation the Chaplaincy Leader visits each class to prepare them and to review an examination of conscience.
Each grade nine and grade twelve student participates in a retreat. The grade nine retreats are held in early September and October. The grade twelve retreat is held in the Spring.
Each first period grade nine class participates in a full day retreat held at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church. The retreat includes prayer and reflection time, chapel orientation, activities focused on getting to know one another, community service hours, and an anti-bullying campaign presented by students in grades 10, 11, and 12. A lunch is provided for students for a nominal fee.
The grade 12 retreat is a full day retreat held off site for all graduating students. The focus of this retreat is to reflect on where one has come from and where God is leading each person in the future. A luncheon gives the students an opportunity for fellowship and to share and reflect on memories of the past four years. Often a guest speaker is invited to talk to the graduating class.
