Trinity takes seriously its responsibility to proclaim the message of Jesus, especially as it pertains to our relationship with others
“As a community of faith, the Archdiocese of Louisville has a special duty to proclaim the Gospel message about the dignity and equality of all. We are also called to exercise leadership in the struggle against racism and all other forms of injustice.”
Archbishop Thomas C. Kelly O.P. H’01 November 1989
“Racism is not merely one sin among many: it is a radical evil that divides the human family and denies the new creation of a redeemed world. To struggle against it demands an equally radical transformation in our own minds and hearts as well as in the structure of our society.”
Bishop’s Pastoral Letter on Racism
Trinity hears the clear message promulgated by our leaders and enjoins all in its community to shred all forms of racial discrimination and injustice. Even though societal conditions persist, which sadly, allow racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination to continue, Trinity does not condone such behavior or attitudes. Trinity’s faculty and staff should serve as role models in word and deed, adhering to the standards set forth in the policy and those to which are all bound in relation to the Christian mission of this school. “
