Catholic Cup Spotlights our Faith

2017 Catholic CupStudents gathered to test their knowledge of the Catholic faith in All Saints’ 6th Annual Catholic Cup. Winners of their classroom competitions from grades 4-8 advanced to this final round of The Catholic Cup, an academic-style competition.

As the event emcee, Mr. Tessier posed questions related to Catholic theology and teaching while participants provided answer after answer until the group of contestants came down to just two finalists for the championship round of the competition.

Sample questions during the event included:

  • What is the word that means to promote unity among all Christian religions (winning question) … Ecumenism
  • What is the term used to describe the changing of the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ … Transubstantiation
  • Which part of Mass helps us to prepare for worship and includes the Opening Prayer? … Introductory Rites

Congratulations to Abby Yelvington, our 2017 Catholic Cup Winner, and Emma Reynolds, our runner-up.

We would like to congratulate all of our classroom winners for their outstanding participation:

We want to acknowledge the wonderful work of Mrs. Bill and Mr. Tessier who serve as our faculty coordinators, and extend a very special thank you to the members of our 2017 judging panel:

  • Mrs. Parriott
  • Mrs. Sweeney
  • Mrs. Bill
  • Fr. Noah Morey – All Saints Parochial Vicor

This uplifting event provides a wonderful way for all of our students, those directly participating and those watching from the audience, to learn and grow in their faith.

Band Wins Recognition at Music Festival!

Last Friday both the All Saints beginner and advanced bands performed at the High Note Music Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania.  Our advanced band performed extremely well and was awarded “Superior” ratings from both judges.  Our beginner band, performing for the first time ever at the Festival, earned “Excellent” ratings from the judges and played their best ever. The trip to Hershey was a tremendous success, beginning with a traditional Amish breakfast in Lancaster, followed by the bands’ performances and the remainder of the day spent at Hershey Park.  Congratulations to Mr. Ward, Mr. Sawasky and all of the students on this wonderful achievement!
