Take Action to Ensure Fairness for Catholic Schools in State Budget

Lawmakers have begun their work on the 2018-19 State Budget and several very important program areas are at stake for Catholic schools.  Please click here to read these important issues and to make your voice heard.

PrintCatholic Schools Week is right around the corner!

Please join us for this special week as we celebrate the importance of Catholic education. This year, we will be focusing on celebrating….celebrating community, teachers, faith and students.  We will be dressing a little differently each day and coming together to celebrate each other here at TCS and those in Massena.

We invite you to join us for some of our events (please click here for the full schedule, including times/dates):  Pancake Breakfast, Monday Morning Opening Prayer Rally, Ash Wednesday Noon Mass, and our Spaghetti Dinner.  See below for breakfast/dinner times and prices.  Please note, both events will be held in the TCS Dining Hall and take-outs are available for both meals!

“Soup”er Bowl Ends Soon

Our “Soup”er is in full gear and ending soon. Our students have been working together to help the needy in our community, and as a result, our St. Vincent de Paul Society and Neighborhood Center will have nicely-stocked shelves to feed our Massena neighbors.souper-bowl  The TCS “Soup”er Bowl is a wonderful way we teach our students at Trinity Catholic School what it means to give back. As a small reward, our students work together to “earn” treats as we strive towards our goal. So far, we have earned a JEAN DAY and a TREAT from the Cafeteria.  If we reach our goal of 2018 items, students will receive a movie day, complete with popcorn!  As always, though, this is a win-win situation for TCS students and the hungry of Massena!


Congratulations to our Winter Raffle Winners – Jay McDonald won $10,000 and Lorraine Bero won a trip for 4 to the Dominican Republic!    We thank EVERYONE who sold or bought tickets, with special thanks to Meredith Austin, Kerri Baillargeon, and Emily Currier for the countless hours they spent planning and counting tickets and money!
