Lenten Service Project will Benefit Maggie's Place
Posted on 03/11/2019

Trinity is proud to partner with Maggie's Place for our school-wide 2019 Lenten service project. Maggie's Place provides life-changing programs and services for pregnant and parenting women and their children by offering a warm and welcoming community, a safe place to live and learn, and on-going services to help them become self-sufficient. Since the start of the school year, students and faculty have provided various types of service to Maggie's Place, located on the campus of St. Monica Parish in Garfield Heights.

Each week during Lent, families are encouraged to bring in items that can be donated to Maggie's Place and the residents who call it home. Please consider being generous during this holy time of year, knowing that your donations are helping to serve a great cause.
