Dear Trinity Alumni and Friends:
Greetings from Most Holy Trinity! You may have heard that an effort is being made to
revitalize the Trinity Alumni Association. During the past two years a number of people have
volunteered their time to help with this effort.

safeguarded in an office in the school building that once housed both the
elementary and high schools.
3.Efforts have been made to update the data base of Alumni
We are very pleased to announce that Miss Hannah Bruchman, a highly motivated high school
senior and accomplished Girl Scout, has recently volunteered her time to help us with the Trinity
Alumni effort. This project will help her to complete her Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest
honor a Girl Scout can achieve. Hannah will gather information about our alumni members,
update our data base, post accurate and up-to-date information on the Alumni pages of the
Trinity web site, and help us to plan for a Springtime Alumni Homecoming scheduled for
Saturday, April 5, 2008. Please see the note that Hannah has attached to this letter.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you will be able to join us in April of 2008.
Very Truly Yours,
Fr. Timothy P. Dore, OFM Conv.

Dear Most Holy Trinity Alum,
My name is Hannah Bruchman, and I am currently working with Fr. Timothy to create an
online database of past Trinity elementary and high school students and graduates. This project
will help me complete my Girl Scout Gold Award. With the new and updated database, Trinity
can help to keep its alumni informed about alumni gatherings, such as class reunions, as well as
upcoming events at Most Holy Trinity. An event that we would like you to plan to attend is the
Spring Alumni Homecoming to take place at Trinity on Saturday, April 5, 2008. It will include a
Mass to be celebrated in the church at 10:00 AM followed by a luncheon in the school gym. It
would be so wonderful if many of the Trinity Alumni could be present on that day.
According to the mission statement of The Trinity Alumni Association, it was
“established to nurture and perpetuate good fellowship among its alumni, . . . hopes to keep its
alumni connected to each other and to guard and cherish the wonderful memories at Trinity,” as
well as “to encourage and to continue the special bond that our members have with Most Holy
Trinity Church.” I am so happy that I have the opportunity, as part of my Girl Scout Gold
Award, to help with this wonderful effort.
My first task as part of this project is to complete this mailing that you have received.
The second is to compile the information that you supply to me by using the enclosed return
form and envelope (thanks for supplying a stamp on the return envelope). You may also choose
to send us your information by using our Alumni Association email address
(email@example.com). Once I have received everyone’s information, I will
be able to move on to the third task which will be to update all of the Alumni records kept at
Trinity. I will then be in touch with you again as I help to organize the Spring Alumni
Homecoming at Trinity.
Thank you so much for your part in revitalizing the Trinity Alumni Association, and
thank you for your help as I work on this project in order to complete my Girl Scout Gold
The Trinity Alumni Association is an organization of alumni, faculty, staff, family and friends of Most Holy Trinity
Elementary and High Schools. The Trinity Alumni Association proposes to help its members in their efforts to renew, rekindle and
maintain the contacts made over the long history of the schools through newsletters, special events, reunions, updated web pages on
the Trinity web site, and a safeguarded archives. Most Holy Trinity Elementary School was founded in 1851. The Sisters of St.
Dominic began teaching there in 1853. The elementary school had been in constant operation by religious and lay teachers since from
the time it opened until the day it closed in June of 2005. The Society of Mary (the Marianists) began teaching in the boys’ division
in 1904. Most Holy Trinity High School was operated and staffed by the Marianists with diocesan priests and lay faculty from 1915
until it closed in June of 1972. A special word of thanks must be given to Joe Manzo, HS '60, who labored to establish and build
the Trinity Alumni Association. With eternal gratitude and thanks!
Please help us to update our records.
No membership dues or donations are being sought at this time.
