Statement on the Passing of Sr. Dorothy Payne, President of Trenton Catholic Academy, from Mayor Kelly Yaede

On behalf of the entire Hamilton Township community, I would like to express our collective thoughts and prayers for the family, friends and loved ones of Sr. Dorothy, as well as her fellow Sisters of Saint Joseph and the entire Trenton Catholic Academy community.

For decades, Trenton Catholic Academy – previously known as McCorristin Catholic High School and Saint Anthony’s High School – has been an important part of our community, here in Hamilton Township.  Thanks to this institution, generations of Hamiltonians and area residents were educated inside its doors and grew both personally and spiritually.

Sr. Dorothy’s leadership role at Trenton Catholic was important in terms of her service and dedication to students that were educated there during her tenure, as well as in terms of continuing the legacy of the high school that Monsignor Michael McCorristin spearheaded in the early 1960’s.  She was a tireless advocate for what she believed was in the best interests of her students, their school and its future.

While I recognize the sadness felt by the Trenton Catholic Academy community, may they take solace in the fact that Sr. Dorothy is now with God, who she faithfully served during her life, and that, now, Trenton Catholic has another tireless advocate for their school in heaven.
