“Christ the King and Advent”
The Solemnity of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, powerfully proclaims one thing: Jesus
Christ has already won.
The fact that this solemnity comes at the end of the liturgical year is significant. Throughout the
past liturgical year, we have experienced whatever life has thrown at us. All of the ups and
downs, all of the consolations and desolations, all of the troubles and joys, we have grown in
experience. Some of us may have made resolutions, either during Advent or Lent or even for the
whole liturgical year. We may have determined to dedicate more time and effort to our faith,
whether that be spending more time in prayer or learning about the Faith. Taking a look on the
previous year, we can see the ways in which we have grown and maybe the ways in which we
have failed. We can be happy about the previous year or disgruntled. No matter where we are or
what has happened this past liturgical year, Jesus Christ has already won.
Jesus Christ has already won. What exactly does that mean? It is the proclamation that God has
ordered all things for good. It proclaims that there is hope. We have hope that every moment of
our life—past, present, and future—can be redeemed. That is to say, every moment can be used
for the good by God. Hence, the “spiritual act”’ that we make on this solemnity is to hand
everything over to God. We give this past year to him and allow his kingship to redeem
absolutely everything.
Here is another significant liturgical coincidence. Advent comes right after the Solemnity of
Christ the King. We “start over”, beginning immediately with four weeks of preparing for the
coming of the Lord. Hence, we have two “spiritual acts”. At the end of the liturgical year, we
give everything over to God. Immediately afterwards, we heartfully ask for him to come into our
lives. We give God everything, creating space in our lives, and we invite God in. We echo that
ancient Christian prayer, Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20). Thy Kingdom
Come, Thy Will be done!
In Christ,

addition, 25% of the funds we collect remain in our diocese to fund
local antipoverty projects. Please prayerfully consider how you can

how much you love them. Statistics show the number one reason
students get involved is because they are invited. Let‘s make sure
your student gets that invitation to attend their campus ministry
today! To send a package: go to

Making Disciples Since 1883
Dear Holy Trinity Parishioners,
On Monday of this week, I informed our teachers and school families that our principal, Mr. Tony Biese,
is taking a position at a different school effective January 1, 2022 and will be resigning his position at
Holy Trinity at that time. I am grateful for the work that Tony has done since taking the position of Holy
Trinity principal in the summer of 2020. He is a good man and passionate about Catholic education.
During his time at Holy Trinity he facilitated many of the good changes that we made in the past year. He
and his family will be greatly missed by our parish and school community.
I am working with staff, our trustees, the diocese, and with our school advisory committee to make a plan
for the administration of our school until the end of the school year. Most likely this will involve
appointing an interim principal who will serve until we are able to hire a new principal, which would
probably happen in the summer of 2022. I hope to make an announcement regarding the short-term
leadership of our administration during the first week of December.
Because of the lack of clarity about who is going to be leading us in the “short-term” and the “unknown”
that this brings, I have decided to postpone the school community meeting scheduled for November
22 until early December, in the hopes to be able to present a plan for moving forward at or before the
rescheduled meeting. Please stay tuned for a date and time.
I am grateful for the support of our diocesan Director of Catholic Schools, Michelle (Williams) Kramer,
an alumna of Holy Trinity, who spent the day yesterday at Holy Trinity meeting with teachers and staff.
She has a special love for our school and will be a very valuable resource for us during this time of
transition.
One of the frequent questions asked is what happens to the direction of our school once Mr. Biese leaves.
Will our curriculum change in the middle of the year? Are we going to eliminate daily Mass (four days
per week) for our students? This week I have reiterated to our teachers that our school is going in the right
direction. While we always need to be making improvements on what we are doing, we will not be
reversing course in the middle of the year.
In the past couple days our community has been abuzz with various rumors that included the possible
closure of our school next month. This claim has absolutely no basis in reality and is completely false. It’s
also been claimed that Mr. Biese was pressured to resign by me or by the diocese. This is also completely
false. As much as we may be saddened by the departure of such a great family from our parish and school
community, we need to respect everyone’s right to make the decisions they feel are necessary for their
good and the good of their family.
I ask that you do all that you can to avoid starting or spreading rumors. As questions arise, please reach
out to me or others in the school office who can answer your questions.
At this point, I would ask everyone to trust the process and trust that God’s plan for Holy Trinity is bigger
than ours. No one human being is going to be the savior of Holy Trinity School. God is going to use the
different people that He sends to our school to build it up in different ways, and I trust that He will
provide the right people to move us forward. We will continue to strive to be the best school in our area
and give our students such good Christian and academic formation that everyone will want to be a part of
what is happening at Holy Trinity. Right now, let’s move forward with unity and charity.
God has a good plan for our future. Let us keep our eyes and hearts fixed on Him. St. Joseph, pray for us!
In Christ,
