Spirit, Service, Leadership…
At Holy Trinity we are committed to helping our students realize that a Holy Cross education is not simply measured by a grade, but by the quality of one’s character and one’s commitment to justice. The Campus Ministry department fulfills this commitment by offering an array of opportunities for spiritual growth, Christian service, and leadership.
Annual class-level retreats seek to strengthen class unity through team building exercises, group activities, and prayer. Monthly all school masses deepen our school spirit while commemorating significant cultural and religious holidays. Additionally, our student chapel hosts weekly mass, prayer services, and other small group events to help students enrich their hearts as well as their minds.
Holy Trinity's new Christian Service Learning (CSL) program provides our students the opportunity to do meaningful service work and reflect on that experience in the light of their faith. Through the CSL program, our students are challenged to become agents of change extending their education beyond the classroom as they develop both “the competence to see and the courage to act.” Through service, reflection, dialogue, and prayer HT students learn the value of servant leadership, and develop a strong sense of social responsibility rooted in the values of the Brothers and the Gospel vision of Jesus Christ.

Building upon the Holy Cross Values of integrity and family, Campus Ministry also coordinates service and social outreach projects both within our school as well as the wider Chicagoland area. Blood drives, food drives, and charity fundraisers enable students to serve within the school. Volunteering in local outreach programs allows students and staff to extend our spirit of service beyond the classroom and into the community. The Campus Ministry department strives to promote the growth of Holy Cross Values in our all of our students empowering them to become mature, well rounded, and socially responsible people of faith.
