Life Issues Day
Each year, we host about 15 different speakers for Life Issues Day. These speakers come and present on various topics to our students including stress, anxiety, depression, pro-life issues, STDs, faith life, disaster preparedness, suicide prevention, and more. Life Issues Day is scheduled for January 27th, 2017.
Jesus Christ is the reason for our school. Retreats are one of the ways that we provide an opportunity for students to come to know Jesus on a deeper level. Each year that a student attends Trinity, he/she will attend a retreat. Each retreat is different, but over the course of 4 years, these retreats provide each student with an opportunity to experience the presence of Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration, to experience His healing power in the sacrament of Reconciliation, and to enter into a relationship with Him in personal prayer through different activities. The seniors get to attend an overnight retreat which is an amazing opportunity for them to grow together as a class and to really strengthen their faith lives.
Each retreat has a different theme.
FRESHMEN- Welcome to TCHS
The freshmen retreat is a day of class bonding and prayer. Students participate in games, small group discussions, prayer, and more. Students from the senior class lead the retreat and share their personal testimonies to inspire the freshmen. Students are encouraged to consider what they stand for and to get involved at Trinity.
SOPHOMORE- Freedom in Christ
This retreat is lead by the REAP team. The focus of the day is for students to understand that relying on Jesus for their hope and joy is what will make them feel truly free, truly happy. Students have the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation.
JUNIOR- My Catholic Faith
The focus of this retreat is encouraging students to take ownership of their Catholic faith, and to really think about what it means to say, "I'm Catholic." Students are empowered to come together and prepare to be the future leaders of Trinity.
SENIOR- The Body of Christ
The senior retreat is a overnight experience that is required of all students. Students will consider their gifts and talents and how each person can contribute to the greater good of the Church. Students will participate in activities, small group discussions, meals, Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, Reconciliation, and plenty of free time to enjoy each others company.
Campus Ministry Volunteers
We are always in need of students to help with Mass set up, retreats, supply drives, prayer services, and more. Additionally, we need students who are willing to serve in the various roles at Mass including lectors, singers, gift bearers, and servers.

Throughout the school year, we have 2 main school-wide collections. In November, we have a canned food drive to benefit our local food pantry. In December, we collect toys for children whose families are struggling.
Archdiocesan Senior Mass
On September 26th, 2016 all seniors in the Archdiocese of St. Louis attended Mass with Archbishop Carlson at the Cathedral.
Periodically we offer our students opportunities to attend presentations on a variety of topics. Here is a photo from one of our past guest speakers. Faith Otten and Mary Sarafino from The St. Louis Coalition for Life came to educate us about what's really going on with Planned Parenthood and how we can get involved to help peacefully end abortion.
