We Are The New Trinity, Part II

Forty years ago, the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Third Order of St. Francis gave permission to Sr. Catherine Britton to transform Marymount High School into a new school to be called Trinity High School. It was going to be a Catholic, co-educational school and transformations of various types had to begin to launch this brave step into the future. Besides a few needed physical renovations to the school to adapt to the young men in our midst, new sports, new clubs, new activities and new traditions began.

Those of us who were "Mounties" had mixed emotions about the change; it was not going to be "the Mount" anymore. In 1970, I came back to teach at my high school before the change occurred. I was involved in the decision-making and planning for the new school and it was difficult. I loved Marymount, but times dictated a change was needed, and so Trinity was born. Over the next 40 years of my career, I loved Trinity and its students as much as I loved "the Mount" and its students. Times change and we adapt.

As you read in part one of "We Are The New Trinity", even Trinity has transformed to meet the needs of our community. Trinity Alums of the 80s and 90s probably feel the same as I did when Marymount changed. However, our memories, friendships, and school spirit lives on within us. We are Trinity Today within the building with today's students, but we are also St. Joseph Academy, Marymount High School, and Trinity High School in our hearts and spirit. Over the years it has been great to see children of alumni attend Trinity and become a part of that spirit. It has also been fun to see parent-alums return on the other side of the desk at parent-teacher conferences! It has been wonderful to work with alums of both Marymount and Trinity who have taken on the role of educators within our school. (And all of these scenarios have made me feel a little old!)

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with some wonderful educators and staff members. These people, past and present, have had an immense presence in the lives of Trinity students, educating, leading, coaching, ministering, praying and advising. They deserve our profound thanks for their dedication and service. In photo gallery below are some of the members of the Trinity faculty, staff and administration that leads our student body today. I'm sure our alums remember those who led them in the past as our current students will remember these in their future. God's blessings to them all!

We salute our Catholic schools as we celebrate Catholic Schools Week (January 26-February 2). I urge you to celebrate your THS teachers, staff members and administrators in particular. Years ago for Teacher Appreciation Day, Dr. Patrick Riley surprised the faculty and staff with letters/cards written by alums to the Trinity personnel who had influenced their lives. It had a profound impact of the staff at that time. I am not suggesting that undertaking again, but I am urging you to remember your teachers and staff with a prayer of thanksgiving during this Catholic Schools Week, whether you are a current or past member of the Marymount-Trinity Family. Lastly, I ask you to consider making a donation to the school mission in honor/memory of those who have impacted your life through our annual appeal. Know that your generosity is very much appreciated.
