Jacobs worked arduously in the off-season to add muscle to his slight frame.   Look for Jacobs to score high in the state championships. In addition, Mateo Miramontes and Ben Goettl continue to impress the coaches with their rapid improvement and disciplined approach to the sport.  Brophy wrestles Central H.S. and Alhambra Wednesday @ Central.

MASS – Celebration of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 9:40AM, Robson Gym

We will gather to praise God for the grace that prepared Mary’s parents and Mary for their role in salvation history. After all, the holidays are about family.  But, we also honor Mary as the patron saint of the Americas – our Lady of Guadalupe, who appeared to Juan Diego. May we, like him, bring her message of hope to the whole world, but especially to the most vulnerable people among us.  As roses fell from the tilma (cloak) of Juan Diego in the miracle of Guadalupe, let’s pray that we let the stress of the times and distractions of our lives fall to reveal the image of ourselves that blesses those we meet.

 

BIRTHDAY WISHES go out to Sam Bentley ’17, A J Frakes ’18, Comer Wadzeck ’18 and to all other BRONCOS who celebrate a birthday today    Happy Birthday to you

We will gather to praise God for the grace that prepared Mary’s parents and Mary for their role in salvation history. After all, the holidays are about family.  But, we also honor Mary as the patron saint of the Americas – our Lady of Guadalupe, who appeared to Juan Diego. May we, like him, bring her message of hope to the whole world, but especially to the most vulnerable people among us.  As roses fell from the tilma (cloak) of Juan Diego in the miracle of Guadalupe, let’s pray that we let the stress of the times and distractions of our lives fall to reveal the image of ourselves that blesses those we meet.
