Trinity School at River Ridge in Eagan is one of just three schools in the nation run by People of Praise, the small religious community that includes U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

Trinity School at River Ridge stands on the outskirts of Eagan, one of just three schools in the nation launched by People of Praise, the little-known religious community that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett has been part of since childhood.

The modern campus also is headquarters for the People of Praise regional office, coordinating local activities including summer camps, worship events, boys and girls clubs and senior citizen programs. Many members also work or volunteer at "missions" in Indiana and Louisiana.

As the Senate prepares to confirm Barrett, national media have seized upon her involvement in People of Praise in her hometown of South Bend, Ind. But Minnesota is home to the largest branch in the nation of People of Praise, launched in the 1980s. More than 440 of its 1,700 members live in the Twin Cities.
