Letter from the President
Dear Parents and Guardians,

Recently, leaders from different Dominican schools across the country have been getting together (virtually, of course) to talk. Specifically, one discussion focused on what it means to have a Dominican education. Each leader was contemplative about the commonalities and the differences in each of our schools. One member of the group challenged: Does your community know your mission statement?

This made me reflective. When I was hired I requested that each teaching space post a copy of the mission statement clearly visible for students and faculty alike. You may not realize that each meeting of the Board of Directors opens with prayer, and then a recitation of the Trinity Mission Statement. But it had been a while since I truly considered the words in that statement. I reread it today - and already I am seeing and reading things that had never stood out to me before. So today I want to share my own personal thoughts on our mission statement. After all, it is our mission that makes Trinity High School so special. Read more.
Congratulations to the cast & crew of Trinity's "OFF LIMITS" Production
Congratulations to the Trinity Fine and Performing Arts students and faculty on their ingenuity and creativity with their fantastic performance of "Off-Limits." From Chicago to Legally Blonde, to A Chorus Line and Wicked, 40 Trinity students put their spin on some of the gems of the musical theater world. The event was held on Trinity's outdoor campus "Ravinia style."
We are proud to announce that we will be hosting ONE Baccalaureate Mass for graduates and 2 guests each on Wednesday, May 26th at 10 am. The mass will take place in the Sister Michelle Germanson Athletic Facility and families will be seated in socially distanced pods during the liturgy.  

Graduates are asked to wear their Herff Jones issued White Cap and Gown, as well as white shoes during the liturgy. Caps and gowns will be distributed to graduates the week of May 24th during graduation practice.

Capacity for the SMG Athletic Facility has been established in collaboration with Village officials using the guidelines established by the IDPH for Phase 4 indoor seated spectator events. In the event that we have extra tickets available for the Baccalaureate Mass, we will conduct a lottery. If you would like your graduate's name added to the lottery for a chance to receive an extra ticket to the Mass, please indicate your interest in the form below.  

The Baccalaureate Mass is NOT a mandatory senior event for graduates, all are invited to participate and attend but not required. The Mass will be live-streamed on our YouTube Channel for friends and family unable to attend.

If your graduate and 1-2 guests would like to attend, please RSVP on this form by noon on Wednesday, April 28th. If we have not met or exceeded the 300 person capacity by noon on Wednesday, April 28th with submitted RSVPs, then we will conduct a lottery to disperse the remaining tickets to interested families.
