Parish Oratorical Festival held on February 11th

Our parish's St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival was held Sunday, February 11th, and those in attendance were treated to a dozen outstanding, insightful speeches by our youth.

The winners at the parish level will represent Holy Trinity at the 2018 Metropolis SJCOF, to be held the weekend of March 9-11, 2018. The Metropolis festival will be hosted by St. Anna parish in Cottonwood Heights, Utah. Winners at the Metropolis level move on to compete at the Archdiocese SJCOF, which will be hosted by the Metropolis of Chicago and the Parish of St. John the Baptist in Des Plaines, IL, on June 8-10, 2018.

Congratulations to the participants in this year's Oratorical Festival!
