At Trinity, we believe in educating the whole person. This type of education entails not just filling the mind, but the shaping of hearts and souls of students to love that which is good, true, and beautiful. And, all while recognizing that the best object of their love and affection is found in the person of Jesus Christ. In addition to this mindset already being a part of the everyday classroom and co-curricular experience, Trinity emphasizes the school’s Spiritual Life through the following avenues.
School verse for the 2019-20 school year is Proverbs 9:10 - The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
Catechism Question this week
Q31: What do we believe by true faith?
A: We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
Better known as The Apostles’ Creed, this specific question takes us back to a creed that the church has been reciting for centuries! And, it uniquely unites all Christians in stating some of what would be considered as the core or essence of our faith. While all Christians undoubtedly believe (and should believe) more than is stated in this creed, no one can believe less and still be considered a true follower of Christ. It’s important for our students (and us!) to be reminded of this as we recite this together acknowledging what not only unites us collectively today but also what unites us to the historic faith of Christianity past.
Enjoy a beautiful example of praise to our Lord in this brief video of our senior class. On their trip to Italy in 2019, they sang the doxology in the Pazzi cathedral.
Every Monday, the entire school gathers in the hallways to sing the doxology together so this is a familiar praise - but hearing it in a chapel in Italy is a whole new level of beautiful.
