Today’s Blessing 
May God make you holy with you feel stalled and stuck and nothing seems to motivate you or move you forward in your journey. In these neutral places may you imagine God coming to rest beside you, grateful for the time to be with you in the idleness. May you take this time to notice where you are and to listen for the voices in your environment or within your heart. And may you experience the wordless presence of God in the quiet places. May the God of Abiding Presence be with you. –Maxine Shonk, OP

A Pilgrimage to Remember

This past June, 140 high school choir members and families from Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids traveled to Italy for the 8th time! They had a profound spiritual and musical experience singing concerts and Masses in Assisi, Florence, Palestrina, and Rome. Highlights included singing in the Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi, St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, singing for a Papal Mass with Pope Francis and singing and collaborating with a local choir at the cathedral in Palestrina. The chaplain of the pilgrimage was Fr. Colin Mulhall. The accompanist was Craig Swatt. The pilgrimage was directed by Deacon Dennis Rybicki. The choirs of Catholic Central HS tour Italy every four years.

A note from Head Coach Mike Slobodnik…..

On July 14th we will host our annual golf outing at Quail Ridge.  Each year we look forward to sharing great memories while looking ahead toward another promising season for the Catholic Central hockey program.  This golf outing is our primary fundraiser for the hockey program each year and your continued support is necessary for its success.  This fundraiser greatly assists in reducing each players’ fees as well as offsetting additional costs incurred throughout the year.  The “big ticket” item for this year will be the purchase of new uniforms for the upcoming season.  Please save the date and we hope to see you all there.  We have a special bond within our Catholic Central community and seeing everyone associated with the program is always a highlight of the summer.  Go Cougars!
