Dear Trinity Families and Friends,
Beginning in December, our school Chapel services guided students, staff, and families to anticipate the Christmas holiday by including the themes of preparation and reflection. Near the beginning of each Tuesday and Thursday Chapel (in the season called Advent), a student came forward to light a candle on the Advent Wreath, and the congregation sang “Light One Candle” by Natalie Sleeth. Candles are lit in increasing numbers with each week, so they serve as a way to mark the passing of time as the holiday grows nearer. As always, parents, grandparents, and Trinity Church friends are welcome and encouraged to attend Chapel. The School worship schedule is posted on the school website under the School Life Tab.
School dismisses for Christmas Break at Noon on Thursday, December 20, the same day as the Beginning School traditional holiday Musicale (9:00 AM) and the K-8 combined Festival of Lessons and Carols (10:30 AM). Both of these events will be held in the historic sanctuary of Trinity Episcopal Church.
The student choir under the direction of Laura Hyatt represents Trinity and brings holiday cheer to our great city, including local banks, Saengerfest, the Galvez Tree Lighting ceremony, the local Rotary, and the Meridian Retirement community. I thank them for representing Trinity and giving their time to our community to brighten up others.
On behalf of the Trinity Episcopal School community, I wish you all a blessed and joyous holiday season! We will return to school on Monday, January 7th, 2019.
With warm regards,
Mark Ravelli / Head of School
