Holy Trinity Holds Mass On The Grass

As is tradition, the entire Holy Trinity community recently celebrated the Mass of the Holy Spirit, which is held the first Thursday of the school year. The mass is celebrated to seek the guidance and wisdom of the Holy Spirit in the coming year. Since it is held outside on the football field, it has been dubbed “Mass on the Grass.”

“The entire community looks forward to this great tradition and it is always noted how solemn and respectful everyone in attendance is,” observed Ann-Marie Hoher, the school’s music ministry director.  “Even the neighbors and those driving by joined; either by coming out of their homes, stopping on the roadside or beeping their horns in support of the school.”

With over 1300 strong in the bleachers, and a 150 voice choir on the field, the mass was a great way to start the school year. This year, the liturgy had an extra special touch, as the students and faculty were able to sit on the new bleachers that were installed over the summer.  The bleachers will be officially dedicated during the school’s Homecoming celebration on Saturday, Oct. 19.
