Chapel


Holy Trinity High School is privileged to have its own Chapel. The Chapel is the focus of the spiritual character of the school and is used for private prayer and class liturgical celebrations.

The Chapel is located right off the main Atrium, and always open to welcome students for prayer, for reflection or to gather for discussion.


Meaning of the Board’s Spiritual Theme 2016-2018


The new two-year theme represents a natural progression for the Board, as it provides a way for our staff, students and community to dig deeper in the Gospel to make real and meaningful connections. This theme is inspired by the following passage:

Gospel of Luke, 4:14-20

"The spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour."

This passage calls for us to bring the Good News to all learners and their families, and to rediscover and deepen our commitment to the gift of faith in our lives.



Chaplaincy Department

Our school's current Chaplaincy Leader is Jay Williams.

The chaplaincy leader helps to create a community atmosphere of care, concern and compassion. Through the chaplaincy leader, community worship, prayer and social action projects are animated. The chaplaincy leader is a resource for religion teachers and fosters liaisons with local parish communities and the diocese.  The chaplaincy office is located right off the chapel and is a spot for students and staff alike.

Morning prayer, social justice team, class visits to the chapel along with numerous activities planned throughout the year give students an opportunity to share, to learn and to grow in faith. Finally, the chaplaincy leader is involved with students and staff searching for stronger connections to community within our school and in Kanata.  He can be reached at Jay.Williams@ocsb.ca or 613-591-9955.

There is continuous enhancement of parish and diocesan connections at the school that is undertaken to create the best possible milieu for the student’s care and success.  The school council also has a parish representative, who may be a member of either Holy Redeemer Parish or St. Patricks Parish, Fallowfield.

We are also fortunate to celebrate the Eucharist four times a year.  Priests from the Ottawa Roman Catholic Diocese also make themselves available twice a year in order that staff and students may receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
