Make sure to register for THIRST 2019!

  • THIRST 2019 is quickly approaching, October 26-27, at the Bismarck Event Center.  This diocesan sponsored event gives families an awesome opportunity to hear from nationally known Catholic speakers; spend time with Christ in Eucharistic Adoration; as well as opportunities throughout the weekend for Holy Mass and the Sacrament of Confession.
  • In Conjunction with THIRST 2019 is the Diocesan Youth Conference - Saturday, October 26.  Featured speakers include Fr. Leo Patalinghug and our own Bishop David D. Kagan.  The youth conference, like THIRST, is free of charge, but registration is appreciated so that youth conference participants can be offered lunch.
  • For the prekindergarten through grade 5, Cat Chat will again be at THIRST!  Helping the Catholic faith come alive for children, Cat Chat features the Montpetit family from Canada. 
  • One of the highlights of THIRST 2019 is sure to be "Cooking for the Kingdom: A Clerical Culinary Showdown." Check out this article in the Dakota Catholic Action for more details!  Teams include: Fr. Jordan Dosch + Fr. Josh Waltz, Fr. Keith Streifel + Fr. Thomas Grafsgaard, and Fr. Bill Ruelle + Fr. Gregory Crane.

Trinity Elementary Reminders

  • Students must arrive to school by 8:15 a.m. at TEE and TEN, and 8:05 a.m. at TEW or they will be marked tardy.
  • If students wear a shirt under their uniform shirt, please ensure that it matches the color of our uniforms if it is visible.  Thank you, parents! 
  • As we get further into the fall, we are also noticing children coming to school sick. Parents, please keep your child home if they are sick or have fevers. Rest and fluids are important in getting rid of illness and we do not want to “share” un-necessary germs with our fellow classmates. Children must be fever-free for 24 hours before they can return to school.
