Congratulations to our 4th and 5th grade Book Bee teams who competed this past Saturday. While they were small, they were mighty. As teams of just 4 students each, they competed against teams made up of 10 - 12 students each. Both teams were ranked in the top 3 after the 1st round. At the end of the 2nd round, the 4th grade team was awarded 2nd Place Overall. Congratulations to these great readers!

A note from Love the Hungry, the organization with which our parish partnered in December to pack bagged meals: The remainder of the food Holy Trinity's group packaged at Love the Hungry left the warehouse on Friday and is on its way to Ukraine! The other part of the packaged food was sent to Eastern, KY at Christmas to help those affected by floods. Thank you again for helping those who hunger, and for being His hands and feet.
