Following words of wisdom and nostalgia from Trinity teacher Mr. John Baldwin and senior Dallas Jenkins at the Baccalaureate Mass, the Class of 2018 received a blessing from the faculty and waited for the next day’s excitement to commence.

Trinity Chaplain Rev. Dave Zettel ’58 celebrated the Mass, accompanied by Rev. Mr. Brandon DeToma ’00 and Mrs. Holly McGuire.

Trinity’s 62 annual commencement, held at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall on May 20, included final lessons for the seniors from Honor Alumnus Glenn R. Blincoe, DMD ’73, Peace Medal Recipient Karina Barillas, Trinity President Dr. Rob Mullen and Trinity Principal Mr. Dan Zoeller. Dr. Mullen conferred diplomas to the 282 graduates and spoke of their school record-setting ACT scores and scholarships.

The Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D., Archbishop of Louisville, also delivered closing advice to the graduates, who shortly thereafter celebrated by tossing programs into the air.
