Easter Retreat!

On the last day before the Easter holiday, students and faculty participated in our annual Easter Retreat Day.  We began with a very special prayer service reenacting Jesus washing the feet of His disciples.  Eleven students and one teacher represented the twelve disciples.  It was a humbling and prayerful experience that brought many emotions to the surface for all involved.  We were thankful to have the parents who joined us as well as Father Mike who gave us a wonderful homily.  We then had a morning filled with Easter egg hunts, Stations of the Cross, holiday videos, song, and even dance with our little ones!

As we begin the homestretch of the school year, we are ready for the good weather and the activities that brings, as well as focusing on our school work with the goal of ending the school year on a high note. We are celebrating our amazing office staff on Administrative Professional Day as well as our dedicated and loving school nurse on Nurse’s Day.  Some of our students will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation or Communion over the next few weeks and we pray that their hearts, minds, and souls are ready for these very special sacraments.  May God bless them – now and always!

Surprise visit from our local NYC fire department, Ladder Company 170!

On October 4th, Our Lady of Trust Catholic Academy got ready for fire prevention week 2016 with a surprise visit from our local NYC fire department, Ladder Company 170. Our younger students, from Pre K-3 through grade 2 were lucky enough to experience up close the special work our FDNY members do on a daily basis.
Each of these classes had the opportunity to join our local heroes on the fire trucks, observe the inside of the trucks, see the equipment first hand, sit in the ‘driver’s seat’, and even hold and use the fire hose!
Ladder Company 170 was so generous to share their time with us. I believe that our children will hold on to this memory for the rest of their lives. We are truly thankful! It was an amazing experience for everyone!
