Bishop joins students to dedicate new flagpoles

STAMFORD—Bishop Frank J. Caggiano will join with the students, faculty and staff of Stamford’s Trinity Catholic High School, along with students from The Catholic Academy of Stamford, grades 6-8 on Thursday, March 28  at 10 am. The bishop will dedicate newly-erected flagpoles and flags that will fly over the campus’ newly-renovated facilities.

The ceremonies will include a unique program that includes both patriotic and spiritual elements. The school will mark the event with a color guard, the singing of the national anthem and blessings as the flags representing the United States, the Vatican/Papal flag and state of Connecticut are raised for the first time.

The event is open to the community to join with the Trinity family in the dedication.

Trinity has recently completed a third phase of construction which brought new classrooms, offices, a guidance wing and media center to the facility’s campus. The renovations were dedicated by the Bishop this past January 30 in an event webcast on Facebook Live.

The campus, which includes The Catholic Academy of Stamford Upper School (grades 6-8), Bishop’s residence and The Seminary of St. John Fisher will be the center of Catholic identity in Lower Fairfield County in the years to come.
