At many levels Blessed Trinity connects with the seniors in our community. Through performances, prayer and companionship, our students get a chance to interact with their elders. The seniors and students alike have the opportunity to develop new skills, gain a sense of purpose and have a chance to connect with someone outside their social circle or network. Valentine’s Day songs, pen pal letters, games and joint craft projects bring the young and young at heart, together.
These interactions happen on campus through our parish senior groups, luncheons and masses. Blessed Trinity Tigers also go out to visit, perform and connect with seniors at their residences at The Pines Senior Living and Yorkshire of Edina. These connections are essential in connecting our school to our broader community as well as connecting generations to one another. Not all our students have grandparents to call on for support and not all our seniors have young people in their lives. Bringing these two groups together helps bridge that gap and can have a lasting impact on all involved.
