Virtues

We all want our children to develop passion and purpose in their lives. We want them to experience success in meaningful work and we want them to develop positive, loving relationships. The Catholic faith provides a timeless vehicle for cultivating these things: virtue. Holy Trinity utilizes the Education in Virtue curriculum developed by Sister John Dominic Rasmussen, OP and the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. With this curriculum, students are taught what different virtues look like, sound like, how they are defined and how they might be cultivated by students at different grade levels. They are provided with saints, prayers and Scripture stories to help illuminate virtues like affability, generosity, humility, perseverance, magnanimity and gratitude. Students learn to celebrate their own growth in virtue and to affirm the virtues they recognize in others.
