"My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!" Psalm 139:15-17 NIV

STUDENTS TO PERFORM THE MISER
Come check out this year's spring theater production, The Miser, by Molière, April 27-29 and May 4-6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fireside Room. Originally performed in 1668 and adapted many times since, the play portrays an elderly miser, Harpagon, whose single-minded goal is to obtain and horde wealth. His paranoid encounters with others become amusingly exaggerated over the course of the play. For tickets or other information, please call the College bookstore at 708.239.4702.
TO PALOS, WITH LOVE
All alumni and friends are invited to join with students, faculty, and staff members for Trinity's annual day of community service, lovePalos, on Saturday, April 29.

For more information or questions, contact Bryan Carrier, assistant dean of students, at 708.239.4705 or email@example.com.
