From the Desk of the Headmaster


I hope you all had a relaxing, uplifting, enjoyable, and peaceful Christmas break. Since the major portion of the Christmas season has now officially ended in the new Church calendar with the Baptism of the Lord celebrated yesterday, we are getting back to business as usual.


A big thank you to Kindergarten Teacher Jennifer Warner and Dean of Students Phil Duncan who spent this past Saturday morning at the Napa Mom’s Preschool and Kindergarten Expo at Los Flores Community Center. Growing enrollment in out Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten program is necessary for growing and maintaining healthy enrollment. This is just one of the many ways we can increase our visibility and market our wonderful product.


You should have received Board President Walt Birdsall’s letter yesterday as an attachment to your e-mail announcing a major development in the school’s more than thirty-six year history. As of Dec. 29th, we made the down payment on the purchase of the property we have been renting from Redwood Community Church since 1995. The rest of the purchase should be completed by Feb 28th contingent upon the sale of the adjacent property at 2033 Redwood Rd. Please continue to pray the St. Joseph Novena so that the sale can proceed as planned after Jan. 17thIt is a truly exciting time to be involved with this great school and I have been honored to be a small part of this monumental step forward.


From the Bookkeeper

From Parents’ Guild President Emily Arend


Attached to this memo please find the hot lunch schedule for the rest of the school year. Additionally, please keep an eye out for a reminder letter from Treasurer Sophia Castañeda who will be notifying parents who still owe money from hot lunches served between August-December of 2016. Thank you and have a great 2017!

Athletics Update! – Coming Soon!


New Kolbe-Trinity Apparel Available!


Our new Kolbe-Trinity spirit wear including the now famous fleece modeled by yours truly, is available for purchase! Not only is the apparel attractive, it’s a great way to advertise this wonderful school. And to encourage more of you to buy it, I have decided to temporarily, until the end of this school year, to allow all students from Grades 7-12 to wear it as a uniform sweater.  To place your order, simply go to Athletic Feat (3367 Solano Ave) located in the Redwood Plaza shopping center. Attached is an order form for you to print out and bring with you when you order.



Fingerprinting for Volunteers

Anybody who wishes to volunteer to earn requisite service hours and assist in whatever capacity next year (athletic coaching, field trips, driving for sporting events, lunch duty, etc.) MUST have been fingerprinted and needed to have this information submitted to the diocese ASAP. Please contact Emily in the office immediately to begin the process if you have not done so.

Prayer Requests


Please pray for Sabine Krygier, co-founder and teacher at Trinity Education Center who is battling late-stage cancer. Please continue to keep Catherine Audrey-Quinn in your prayers.



Ad majorem Dei gloriam!

Mr. Bertolini
