You've Got Cardinal Timothy Dolan

Cardinal Dolan discussing Holy Week.

Spirituality in Your Daily Life

A very nice interview of Father James Martin discussing spirituality in your daily life.

Shocking the Audience with "The Prayer"

Simon, the other judges, and the entire audience laughed as this boy and his friend came on stage. But then those laughs quickly turned to applause and tears when Jonathan and Charlotte started to sing.

Its gone viral with 6 million hits.

Virtual Stations of the Cross

This is a very cool way to present the traditional devotion in a virtual way to help you reflect on the mystery of Jesus’ death and what it still means to us today.

Down to the Wire: A Freshman Event

The Commercial: 

Click the play button on the lower left hand corner to start the commerical.

The Information:
1) The Freshmen Division we will be hosting “Down to the Wire: A Freshman Event” on Wednesday April 18th from 6pm – 8pm.

2) The aim of this event is to provide the freshmen with an evening of community and spiritual renewal that will reenergize and refocus them for the 3rd Trimester - the final stretch of the year.

3) The event is free of charge and all students are welcome and encouraged to attend.  In fact, it would be a tremendous show of camaraderie to have the entire class of 2015 in attendance.

4) The event officially begins with dinner at 6pm in wrestling room of the AAC.  Student can (and should) attend their afterschool clubs and sports.

5) Students without an afterschool club or sport, or with clubs or sports that end early, have an opportunity to support their fellow classmates as the Freshmen Lacrosse teams takes on St. Anthony’s at 4:00pm on Ott Field.  A tremendous fan turn out would be a great sign of class spirit.

6) Students should sign-up for “Down to the Wire” with their freshman religion teacher.  After they sign-up, Mr. Foley or Mr. Dolce will contact them to receive their “Down to the Wire” bracelet.  This bracelet will serve as their meal ticket for the event’s dinner.

7) As Chaminade Men, we honor our commitments.  If a student sign-ups and then is unable to attend, they must speak with Mr. Foley or Mr. Dolce.

**Students can be picked up at 8pm in the AAC Parking Lot**

Happy St. Joseph's Day

A beloved, but sometimes forgotten Saint.  His life of humble service to God can certainly be an inspiration.

Check out this great video:

Put St. Patrick Back in St. Patrick's Day!

Saturday, March 17th, is Saint Patrick’s Day; one of two Catholic Saints whose feast day appear on all secular calendars (St. Valentine is the other).  In Ireland, celebrations of St. Patrick’s life date back over a thousand years.  The Church officially recognized March 17th as St. Patrick’s feast day in the early 1600s.

The St. Patrick's Day custom came to America in 1737, with the city of Boston hosting the first public celebration.  However, New York City claims that Boston’s celebration did not count because it lacked a parade; New York hosted the first St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 1762 (have those two cities ever liked each other).

Over time, St. Patrick’s Day has become less about the man and more about a celebration of Irish culture with people wearing green, displaying shamrocks, and eating cornbeef.

This St. Patrick’s Day let’s stop for a minute and remember what we are celebrating on March 17th – a man, a priest, a missionary – St. Patrick.

Here is a link to an article about why we should Put St. Patrick Back In St. Patrick's Day!

For Mr. Foley’s class, there is a short reflection at the end; it is due Tuesday, March 20th
