Your t-shirt does not have to be from a tournament team – it can be any college.

This Thursday Purple Banana will donate 20% of their sales to the mission trip, so please consider stopping by after school. Then, next Monday there will be a Krispy Kreme donut sale before school in the mall. Any and all support is appreciated!

Quote of the Day
Today’s Words of Wisdom come to us from former first lady, Rosalynn Carter, who once noted, “There is clearly much left to be done, and whatever else we are going to do, we had better get on with it.”
Thanks for your attention. Ametur Cor Jesu!
