Trinity Opens its Doors to Ukrainian Refugees

by Judy Maggio, ATX Good News

AUSTIN, Texas — A beautiful partnership has blossomed that’s benefitting Ukrainian children in Austin. Leaders at Trinity Episcopal School discovered dozens of Ukrainian students, ranging from 2 to 16 years old, were looking for a place to hold classes. So they opened their hearts and their school to the refugees. Now, every Sunday, around 60 Ukrainian students have a special place to learn.

One of the school administrators found out about the need for classroom space through the Liberty Ukraine Foundation. She saw this as a wonderful way to show their support and love for their neighbors in need. Bethani Emery, Trinity’s Associate Director of Admissions, says, “Trinity is a private school with a public purpose; we embrace opportunities to partner with our wider communities and, as Christ commands, we are to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

If this partnership speaks to you and you're interested in helping out, please email Bethani Emery, Associate Director of Admission and Enrollment at Trinity.
