Every year, the Trinity Hall community takes a break from their regular schedules for a day of service. This year, on May 12, students and teachers traveled to 19 locations around Monmouth County for Service Day. After a beautiful Mass dedicated to the true meaning of service and the commissioning of 11 new eucharistic ministers for the 2023-2024 school year, the buses departed for a day of serving others. Many of the locations are organizations Trinity Hall students work with or fundraise for throughout the year.
This year, the groups performed various ministries for each organization. At the Monmouth University Community Garden, Fulfill and Allaire Community Farm, students cultivated gardens by planting, building structures and changing soil. At the Harbor School, Lacadin Network, PrimeTime Center and Rising Treetops, students assisted faculty and participated in a variety of activities with individuals with special needs. Also, groups at the Madonna House, Jersey Shore Dream Center and Jersey Shore Rescue Mission sorted and organized donations. Other groups painted murals and tables, cooked meals, cleaned campsites and thrift stores, washed windows, and more. Service Day 2023 was a fulfilling and meaningful day for both Trinity Hall students and faculty.
