October 15 Champions of Faith Benefit Dinner. WOW! I was so impressed with Galen’s strong faith, character and commitment. It was fascinating to hear about his personal journey and I am proud of the role CYO had in his formation.
I encourage you to tune into Mater Dei on April 30 at approximately 7:10 am to hear Galen’s radio interview. You will be inspired to hear his message, and, I pray, motivated to attend our dinner. Come and join Galen and our amazing CYO and Camp Howard supporters and me☺ for a night of faith, inspiration and fun. By attending, you can give every child an opportunity to grow and experience the power of living life through Christian principles. I appreciate your confidence in the work we do at CYO and Camp Howard!

St. Therese came out to the early lead. In the second quarter, the Madeleine went ahead and continued to build a lead and didn’t stop.
The Madeleine team played in the championships the last 3 years and came in second. This year, their fourth year, they won the championship! Congratulations to both teams for having made it to the big dance!
With 2:41 left in the second quarter, All Saints tied the score 16 – 16.
After trailing most of the third quarter, St. John Fisher brings it within one in the final quarter with 3:53 left to play.
With 26 seconds left in the game, St. John Fisher’s Lilly tied the game at 36-36 with a swisher from 12’ out. Lilly fouled out shortly after giving All Saints’ Shannon two charity tries with 1.6 seconds left on the clock. She missed both shots taking the game into a 2:00 overtime.
All Saints 32, Shannon, got the tip, took a shot, missed it, followed up and scored 2.
St. John Fisher lost the ball on their possession to a travel but rebounded from All Saints failing to score. All Saints turned the ball over to St. John fisher with 50 seconds left. St. John Fisher’s Cayton sunk a 3 pointer to go ahead by one with 28 seconds on the clock!
With 5.3 seconds on the clock, the ball went to St. John Fisher. The Cardinals were able to hold off All Saints for 5 seconds to win the game.
One of the best games in the tournament, both teams kept it very close and exciting.
CYO wishes the young women the very best as they move on to high school next year!
