The Friday before last, Phlash popped by FOA's Marquard Center, where teens from Holy Trinity High School were painting the center's grounds as well as cleaning the daytime shelter's kitchen.
Following is a P.S. from John Malloy of Holy Trinity, who sent in some facts about the school, which recently celebrated its 100th anniversary.
P.S. In case you are not familiar with us, here is some information about Holy Trinity:
Holy Trinity was founded by the Brothers of Holy Cross in 1910 to educate the children of Polish immigrants who settled on the near-north side of Chicago. Today, in keeping with the spiritual tradition of the Brothers of Holy Cross and the educational framework of their founder, Blessed Fr. Basil Moreau, C.S.C., we continue to educate youth from across the city, recognizing the unique spirit of all students and challenging them to realize their potential.
