BIRTHDAY WISHES go out to Mr. John (Bucky) Buchanan, Mack Atencia ’21, Ben Gilligan ‘22 and to all BRONCOS who celebrate a birthday today. ♪Happy Birthday to you


CONGRATULATIONS to Brophy’s varsity basketball team on their triple-overtime win last night against #3 Perry!  Down 4 points with 46 seconds to play in regulation, the Broncos battled back to force overtime on 3 straight driving layups by senior Marques White, including the last one with 1.4 seconds left to play.  Brophy trailed by five midways through the second OT but again battled back to tie it at 64 and send it to a third OT thanks to a big three-point play by junior Joe Feeney and 2 free throws by Marques White.  With the score tied and the clock winding down in the 3rd OT, White drove to the basket and kicked it out to senior Ethan Smith who hit a game-winning 3 from the corner with 1.3 seconds left on the clock – WHEW, INTENSE!!  The team would like to thank all of the Brophy basketball fans who came out and cheered them on last night – the crowd’s energy gave the team a huge lift throughout the game.  Next home game is Tuesday, January 15th against Chandler.

Freshman 49-55 and JV 44-58 came up short last night, but they will be ready for Basha on Friday and Chandler on the 15th.

BST SKETCH COMEDY SHOW – Hey Broncos, do you enjoy laughing? Crying? Crying because you’re laughing so hard? Then Brophy Student Theatre’s The Bronco Room, an SNL-style sketch comedy show, could be the show for you. Take a stroll into Brophy’s Black box this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 7 p.m. for a night of jokes, jokes, and guess what? More jokes. Best of all, admission is just a can of food at the door, so it won’t seem like you’re paying actual money, and you’ll feel like a good person, because all that food is going to charity. It’s a win-win for everybody at BST’s The Bronco Room.

We invite you to join us at the performance of Tolton: From Slave to Priest, an original one-man live drama performed by actor Jim Coleman and produced by Saint Luke Productions. This professional production will be presented at Brophy College Preparatory on Tuesday, January 15, 7 p.m., Black Box Theater; coordinated by Dr. Matthew Whitaker and Brophy’s Office of Equity and Inclusion.  In Tolton, audiences encounter firsthand the life and message of Fr. Augustus Tolton, the first African American Catholic priest. Born a slave, ordained a priest in Rome, and sent to minister in Chicago, Fr. Tolton faced prejudice throughout his life. However, he also saw that the Catholic Church was the antidote to the discrimination he experienced. “It was the priests of the Church who taught me to pray and to forgive my persecutors,” he said. “We should welcome all people into the Church, not send them away.”  Fr. Tolton’s compelling story of courage and reconciliation resonates deeply with modern American audiences. Bishop Joseph Perry of Chicago, postulator for Fr. Tolton’s canonization cause, is calling Tolton a production that will “inspire a new era of peace, hope, and forgiveness in America.”  Tolton: From Slave to Priest is a perfect opportunity for our communities to come together. We are very fortunate to have this caliber of theater at our parish, and I hope that you will join us for this inspiring event. If you have any questions or would like a flyer or poster to help promote this event, please contact Dr. Matthew Whitaker, Ph.D., Director, Office of Equity and Inclusion  Admission: Free-Will Offering  TRAILER – Video URL  75 minutes / Recommended for ages 10 & up.
