Students, teachers and staff of Holy Trinity Catholic School
in Morrisville celebrated the start of the new school year on Friday, Sept. 8 under the theme, “Holy Trinity School: To Space and Beyond.” The day began with Mass celebrated by the Holy Trinity Parish’s pastor, Father John Eckert. The school grounds were decorated with a fun space theme, students received themed treats and class pictures were taken in “outer space.” Students and guests were entertained by the popular “Rock Roots” group which teaches the history of American pop music through a live, educational presentation.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
