LISLE, IL – The Benedictine monks at the abbey that founded the Benet Academy more than 120 years ago have announced that it will be parting ways with the Catholic school in Lisle after the school hired a lacrosse trainer who is part of a same-sex marriage, school officials said on Tuesday.

In a letter sent Tuesday by Benet Academy chancellor Abbott Austin Murphy, the school announced that St. Procopius Abbey had decided after “much deliberation” that it no longer had the resources to govern and supervise the school.

The letter cited “events of the past few months” but did not specifically mention the hiring of Amanda Kammes, who is married to a woman and was hired by the school under pressure last fall. The abbey said recent events have given the monks the opportunity to consider their future relationship with the Benet Academy.

At the time, Murphy said he was “deeply troubled” by Benet’s decision to hire Kammes, which he said “calls into question (the school’s) adherence to doctrines of the Catholic faith. “.

In the letter sent on Tuesday, school officials said new alternatives for school sponsorship will be sought and the abbey will continue its governance role in the meantime.

“The aim is for the Benet Academy to continue to operate with an emphasis on academic excellence and Catholic identity within the Benedictine tradition,” said the letter, which was published by Murphy and the president of the Benet Academy Dennis Flynn.

NBC Chicago reported that St. Procopius Abbey is a major donor to the school and provided at least $ 50,000 to the school during the 2019-2020 school year, the station reported.

School officials are committed to keeping community members and parents informed as they seek new sponsorship for the school following the abbey’s decision.

“Contrary to some reports circulating in the media earlier today, we know of our unwavering commitment to ensuring that the Academy will maintain its Catholic identity, in the Benedictine tradition, for years to come,” said the director of the Stephen Marth school in a statement released Tuesday. . “A committee made up of representatives from the Diocese of Joliet, the American Congregation of Benedictines of Cassines, the Board of Trustees of Benet and the school administration is expected to work together to make this important process a success.

Benet Academy came under fire in September when it canceled an offer to coach Kammes’ women’s lacrosse after she listed his wife as an emergency contact in her onboarding documents. After outcry from students, staff and community members, Benet Academy again offered Kammes the job, which she accepted.

The job offer was made after Benet students and other supporters gathered outside the school to protest Benet’s decision to cancel the original job offer. At the time, the school issued the following statement regarding its decision.

“The Benet Academy respects the dignity of all human beings to follow their conscience and live the life of their choice,” the statement read. “Likewise, as a Catholic school, we employ people whose lives manifest the essential teachings of the Church in order to ensure the education and formation in the faith of the young people entrusted to us.

MOUNTAIN VIEW – Junior Aden Cury, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound goalie / forward, put Santa Cruz High on his broad shoulders for 3 3/4 quarters in the Joe Schram Holiday Basketball Classic Championship on Thursday night. But when he fouled, the Cardinals’ backs were broken.

The Cardinals, the reigning Santa Cruz Coast Athletic League champion and Central Coast Section Division IV runner-up, saw their offer to stun Saint Francis of the mighty West Catholic Athletic League fail, 65-55, in the tournament in front of an energetic, masked crowd.

“We had no place in this game,” said Cury. “They thought they were going to come fuck us up, forgive my language, but I really think we showed what we were doing. I really think if there had been a shot or two a whistle didn’t sound and a whistle sounded, that was our game, honestly.

Cury had 25 points and 10 rebounds when he committed his fifth personal foul with 2:29 left and the Cardinals (9-3) trailing five points, 58-53. The Lancers (8-2) outscored the Cardinals 7-2 over the home stretch, with all seven runs coming from the free throw line.

The game was physical, hotly contested and fluid for most of the first three quarters, but officials used their whistles for the final eight minutes. The Lancers had 21 free throws in the fourth quarter – they made 18 – while the Cardinals shot 5 of 6 from the line in the last stanza.

Santa Cruz had 10 free throws in total compared to 30 for the Lancers.

“I feel like the refs got the upper hand more than they should have, stepped out of their seats, honestly,” Cury said. “That’s what it is, I can’t blame the refs. They scored more than us. It’s like that.”

Cardinals coach Lawan Milhouse said, “If you’ve got a team that’s not from your area, a public school that’s competing with a Catholic school, come on, give them their due. My children have well deserved their due. And I have the impression that the referees took it from them. I’m not gonna lie, I feel like they took it from them.

Santa Cruz got off to a good start and led up to seven points, 11-4, behind a strong defensive rebound and solid ball swing in the first quarter. Kosi Warren-House elicited a loud roar from the crowd as he led the pitch and divided defenders Harlan Banks and Tim Netane for a one-handed traffic jam.

“These last two games have been a battle but that’s what we thrive on,” said Warren-House. “We know we’re not going to win every game by 20. Some games are going to be a chore. Today was just a chore.

But the Lancers’ height advantage was significant as they came back with a bang. They had four shots on a possession in the second quarter, with goaltender Thomas Motil’s 3-pointer tying the score to 17.

The teams traded heads 10 times over the next 10:48.

Cury was a force in the third quarter, when he scored nine points. His last field goal came on a basket and basket as he was a three-man team, prompting him to scream and flex before making his way to the foul line. He missed the free throw, but the Cardinals had a 43-39 lead in the fourth quarter.

“Aden showed on a big stage what kind of a player he is,” said Milhouse. “He showed on a big stage where he is. They were looking for guys to watch him. Not a single one knew how to keep it. And that’s how it is, inside, outside, mid-shift, everywhere. He was a leader tonight. He led and that’s what I want from him. He did a great job tonight.

Cury and Netane, a 6-4 forward, shared a colorful dialogue throughout their search for position at both ends of the pitch.

“I told him he was too small, and-a, look down, a little bit of everything. You have to throw the whole bag in a game like this, ”Cury said.

Netane said: “It was back and forth. He had me a lot in the first half, especially in the third quarter, but I was able to have him, I guess, in the end. It was good to fight with him. It was a fun game.

The players praised each other for its competitive nature.

“It just adds more fuel to the fire, more competition, especially coming from a tough WCAL league,” Netane said. “We’re used to playing harder teams. For them, playing with that chip on their shoulder not only made it harder, but also a better game for us. ”

The Cardinals have managed just three field goals in the last eight minutes, a 3 point from Cury and layups from Langston Burkett and Warren-House. Still, the teams found themselves deadlocked the eighth and final time at 52-all with four minutes to go.

Warren-House scored 11 points, each in a rush worthy of a highlighted cover. Senior guard Matt Burns scored eight points and second-year forward Ben Dotten added six points.

Banks, a 6-3 goaltender, finished with a team-high 16 points for the Lancers. Netane and 6-6 goalkeeper Vince Barringer each scored 13 points and Motil added 10.

Cury finished with 56 points and 44 rebounds in three games, but was snubbed by the all-tournament team. He had 11 points and 20 rebounds, a season-high, in a 37-35 win over Cupertino in Wednesday’s semifinal, and 20 points and 14 rebounds in a 66-40 win over Tamalpais in the first Tuesday round.

” I do not care. Either way, ”Cury said. “I think everyone knows what should have happened, what didn’t happen. It’s perfect.”

Cury was told by a Lancers employee working the clock that he hadn’t won all the tournaments because of his attitude, which infuriated Milhouse enough, that he told Lancers coach Mike Motil that Santa Cruz wouldn’t return to the tournament afterwards. year.

“I am 100% surprised that he did not succeed,” said Milhouse. “But then you tell a teenager that he doesn’t go to every tournament because of his attitude. Why? He was playing basketball. The same as any other kid in America does while he plays, he’s horny, turns his teammates on, leads his team, and you tell him he hasn’t made it to all the tournaments because of his attitude. It shows me how it is here (in Mountain View). And it’s good. Our guys competed and that’s what we want them to do.

Teammates Burns and Warren House received honors in all tournaments.

“We spoke after the game so I think we’ll be fine,” the Lancers coach, an Aroma resident, said of his conversation with Milhouse. “I think we’ll find out. Lawan and I have a long history and a long relationship, so we’ll talk about it.

Edna Karr High School won’t start competing in District 9-5A until next fall.

But the Cougars and some of their future district rivals have already watched each other closely since the decision became official last month.

Karr’s boys’ basketball team played four games against future district rivals during the pre-district schedule. He beat Jesuit and Brother Martin before beating Curtis and Martin again in the Country Day Classic last week.

“At Karr, we don’t run away from any competition,” said men’s basketball coach Taurus Howard, who is also athletic director. “We actually encourage that, so it will be a plus for us. “

District 9-5A – which will continue to include Archbishop Rummel, Holy Cross, and St. Augustine – is commonly referred to as the Catholic League, but the inclusion of a public school such as Karr or a non-Catholic school n is not without precedent. Chalmette, Grace King and others predated the Cougars as non-Catholic schools in the venerable district.

“I am happy and grateful that the Catholic League has accepted us into their program,” Howard said. “It is a testament to the fact that they have a lot of respect for us and that they know Edna Karr is a quality program.

“We play against a few Catholic League teams every year. The only difference is that you will be playing them all now. We are looking to play the competitive, toughest, most disciplined teams and Catholic schools have that. “

Catholic League teams have also called on the Cougars for out-of-district basketball and men’s football competitions.

“It’s going to make us all a little better,” Jesuit coach Chris Jennings said. “I think that’s going to make it a stronger league for sure.”

The LHSAA’s announcement that Karr would move from Class 4A to Division I prompted an immediate backlash when it comes to football, as the Cougars have won five state titles in the state’s second rank over the past years. Last 10 years, including four consecutive (2017-19).

Karr and Curtis have played each of the past three seasons. The Patriots won 42-39 in 2019, and Karr won 36-33 in 2020 and 33-19 in the season just ended.

“We play Curtis every year,” said Howard, who is also the defensive coordinator of Brice Brown’s football team. “We play (long time 9-5A member) at St. Aug every year. We just enjoy playing with good people – trying to deliver the best product when we play. “

Karr’s entry into the Catholic League is the most significant constituency change since Curtis joined the league in 2015.

“We were hoping to bring another dimension to it – that we would bring another competitive program and another competitive school to it. I think we did, ”said Patriots football coach JT Curtis, who is also principal of the school his father founded.

Curtis said there was some concern within the district about the Cougars coming in because “they didn’t think Karr was presenting a full set of sports programming.”

“The Catholic League is known for volleyball and baseball for sure,” Howard said. “It will definitely raise the bar for our baseball and volleyball programs and our coaches and kids understand that. We talked about it.

Curtis has added soccer and expanded his swimming program since joining the Catholic League.

Karr’s basketball schedule hasn’t had the success of his football schedule, but he’s been successful lately, reaching the playoff quarter-finals in 2018 and regional ones in 2017 and 2021. The Cougars have been successful in recent times. a 13-2 record after following their victories over Curtis and Brother. Martin with victories over St. Thomas More and Catholic High to claim the Country Day title.

“They are not far behind in football,” Jennings said.

Karr’s entry into the Catholic League for at least the next two academic years coincides with Archbishop Shaw leaving for Class 4A due to lower enrollment numbers.

“I think I speak for all Catholic coaches when I say we are disappointed to see Archbishop Shaw go,” Brother Martin basketball coach Chris Biehl said, noting that the 13-2 Eagles are one of the district favorites at the start. of the Catholic League game is looming next week.

“Karr comes up with a brand of basketball this year, you have to be totally prepared to play it,” said Biehl, whose Crusaders are 15-0 against everyone except Karr.

“Their athletic department and the school as a whole are highly respected academically and athletically,” Curtis boys basketball coach Bill Lewit said of Karr. “You want teams like this – who share values ​​- to come into your league, and Karr represents all that’s good in the Catholic League. “

MARSHFIELD – Anytime wrestling season rolls around Massachusetts, we can usually identify who will be vying for state titles at the end of it.

As for schools? Typically these tend to be a bit harder to nail down except maybe two. For years now, Central Catholic and St. John’s Prep have been in a class of their own in the wrestling community and hailed as programs to model.

On Thursday the two had the opportunity to meet face to face at Marshfield High School in a meetup, and it was Jack Blizard who scored what turned out to be one of, if not the most, victories. reviews of the evening. The junior beat Central Catholic’s Jack Delaney in the 220-pound fight, as St. John’s Prep foiled a furious comeback attempt to claim a crucial 36-27 victory over the Raiders.

“We knew it was going to be a battle,” said St. John’s Prep coach Manny Costa. “Two of the best teams, year after year. We know they come to fight, we come to fight… We won where we had to win. The guys have kept a low profile in the games we thought we would lose. It’s the difference in the game.

As early as the 113-pound battle, you could tell it would be an intense battle between the two programs, as Alex Schaeublin pinned Bobby Ayotte in Game 1 to give St. John’s Prep an early 6- advantage. 0.

However, Jackie Dehney had an answer for Central Catholic, beating Elias Hajali in the 120-pound game (9-4), helping the Raiders reduce their deficit to 6-3.

St. John’s Prep won four of the following five fights, with pins from Tyler Knox, Adam Schaeublin and Rawson Iwanicki. Ryan DeSouza also recorded a key 12-7 victory in his 160-pound tilt with Jason Belkus during the stretch, and for a brief moment it looked like the Eagles were going to win in a cake, leading 27-9.

Still, for as strong as St. John’s Prep was with its lower weight classes, Central Catholic was just as prepared in the later stages of the game. Nate Blanchette triggered the Raiders with a pin in the 160-pound fight, as he beat Ethan Barnes-Felix to bring him down to a 27-15 affair.

After Central Catholic moved closer to 27-24 after a 195-pound victory by Mike Brown, Blizard came out to the mat, looking at Delaney. After biding his time, Blizard used his height advantage to get into position for the hairpin, which gave St. John’s Prep a 33-24 advantage with two games remaining.

“Because of my length I’m so much better over (my opponent),” said Blizard. “Thanks to that, I was able to keep my legs, to keep control. Just tiring him out, it was definitely my way of winning the game. Put in half, and just pin it. It was my game plan.

Although Luke Giuffrida gave Central Catholic some life with a 6-3 overtime win over Charlie Smith in the 285-pound showdown, they still needed a pin in the final game to tie the game. the score.

Then rookie Braedon Goes sealed things soon after for St. John’s Prep, beating Cole Glynn, 4-0, in the 106-pound battle to wrap up the night’s events.

Costa hopes the Eagles and Raiders can keep their rivalry going for years to come.

“I know our ADs want us to fight, and Jamie (Durkin) and I had been going back and forth trying to get a date,” Costa said. “I thought (Marshfield) might have that date… so I said, ‘Hey, thank their coach. They had a place, so we were able to get things done. It was awesome. ”

JEFFERSON – The parish community of St. Francis of Assisi in Jefferson joined with every parish in our diocese to support and participate in the initial stages of Bishop Donald J. Hying of Madison’s “Go Make Disciples” evangelistic initiative .

The parishioners of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste and Saint-Laurent churches, in addition to the students and staff of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste school, are united in prayer and good works to live and proclaim the Gospel of Christ.

With reverence, devotion and passion, people of all ages united in their common obligation and commitment to accept the Great Commission, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” (Matt. 28: 19-20).

Enter phase 2

As we move into Phase 2 of our “Common Vision for Evangelism,” as proposed by Bishop Hying in March 2020, we look back at the work done in Phase 1 as St. Francis Parish of Assisi highlights events and discipleship in action.

In the words of our bishop: “Even though we are deeply formed in our identity as disciples of Christ, we must share the gospel, inviting others to become disciples through our witness of love and our joyful service. . . Missionary discipleship has recently become the focal point of the organization of the Catholic Church, the prism through which believers discuss evangelism, catechesis, prayer, service and virtue.

It is by taking these words to heart that our parish community is organized and engaged in discussion, planning, prayer, liturgical celebrations and charitable works.

Many groups and individuals continue to participate in our diocesan evangelism and discipleship mission as we enter Phase 2.

Highlighting an area of ​​evangelism and discipleship in the parish of St. Francis of Assisi involves the good works carried out by the parish and the school in the form of responding to the needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ through service projects and prayer gatherings that bring comfort to those who are suffering.

Many events were organized and led by Pastor Bro. Thomas Coyle, religious education staff, and the staff and students of St. John the Baptist School.

Examples of discipleship

As this initiative progresses, we would like to highlight examples of discipleship training from our parish community to show that people of all ages are called to action and can respond in multiple ways.

The recognition of Eddy Rodriguez, a student at Jefferson High School (JHS) is a shining example of youth discipleship.
Eddy was recently honored as one of three seniors chosen by the Jefferson Rotary Club as Rotary students for the month of November.

The winners were selected for their scholarship, positive leadership and service to the community.

Eddy has been involved in athletics, does community service work with the JHS Latino Club, volunteers at the local library and is active in the JHS “BASIC” (Brothers and Sisters in Christ) club, which has just completed his annual Thanksgiving dinner. for the community.

They also plan projects for Advent and Christmas.

In addition to contributing to the high school community, Eddy serves his parish family with the same enthusiasm and commitment.

Director of Religious Education Tiffany Topel says he’s part of the Youth Ministry’s EDGE Core Team.

He assists an adult leader with one of the eighth grade small groups on Wednesday evenings as part of our EDGE program.

This is a Catholic college youth ministry program that provides young people with a safe and fun place to find a strong Catholic community, get their questions about the faith answered, and most importantly, experience of Jesus in a deep and personal way.

EDGE resources deal with the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational and spiritual maturation of college youth.

Eddy has also been on Love Begins Here and our conference at Steubenville High School in the past.
As an inspiring example of his prayer life, Eddy also commits to a holy hour of worship in our Chapel of Perpetual Worship on a regular basis.

Finally, he participates in the realization of various projects while being part of our maintenance staff during the summer months.
After graduating from Jefferson High School in June, Eddy plans to study mechanics at a technical college and continue his work and growth as a follower of Christ.

Bishop Hying reminds us that “Jesus Christ calls all the baptized to proclaim the liberating and saving gospel to others, forming our brothers and sisters in the Catholic faith which we cherish. . . Even though we are deeply formed in our identity as disciples of Christ, we must share the gospel with others, inviting others to become disciples through our witness of love and our joyful service. . . In joy and prayer, I invite each baptized member of our local Church to hear again this call to become disciples and to respond to it with faith and generosity. When we set the sail of our lives on the mighty wind of the Holy Spirit, God will lead us to accomplish the work of Christ as we proclaim, pray, serve, and love in his name.

Parishioners, such as Eddy Rodriguez, not only answered the call to discipleship but showed us how it is done.

Schools supplied by Navy Water Scramble to provide students with water and food https://odessasem.com/schools-supplied-by-navy-water-scramble-to-provide-students-with-water-and-food/ Mon, 20 Dec 2021 10:01:25 +0000 https://odessasem.com/schools-supplied-by-navy-water-scramble-to-provide-students-with-water-and-food/ At a time when the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has already disrupted the normal functioning of schools, the Navy Red Hill water crisis has created additional challenges for some schools.

At a time when the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has already disrupted the normal functioning of schools, the Navy Red Hill water crisis has created additional challenges for some schools.

Crates of bottled water, portable water stations, hand wipes, and late deposits by families who have moved from their contaminated residences are part of the new routine in Department of Education schools. ‘Hawaii on the Navy water supply line.

Seven DOE schools are served by this source, all elementary schools, depending on the department: Red Hill, Nimitz, Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor Kai, Hickam, Mokulele, and Iroquois Point. Together, these schools serve approximately 3,000 students.

At least seven DOE schools are served by the Navy’s water supply line and pay their utilities to Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command. Here, a demonstration in front of the State Capitol. Cory Lum / Civil Beat / 2021

The Navy Public Affairs Office said it also supplied water to private centers such as Holy Family Catholic Academy, Kamaaina Kids, Navy Hale Keiki School, Montessori Center of Pearl Harbor, ASSETS and Iroquois Point Preschool. It also included Aliamanu Elementary and Middle Schools as schools served by the DOE in a list provided to Civil Beat.

The state Department of Health recommends that users of Navy system water avoid using the water for drinking or cooking or for oral hygiene. In schools, that means replacing regular school meals with ready-to-heat pizzas, turning off taps in some places, and receiving numerous donations of bottled water.

“At our school, we didn’t feel anything, but because we are on the base, as soon as it came out on the news, our principal decided to be safe,” said Michele Sasaki, kindergarten teacher. at elementary Hickam.

The school did not use running tap water – even for basic hand washing – except to flush the toilet.

Many of its students who are with military families and live in affected areas have been temporarily relocated to hotels in Waikiki, due to contaminated water in their homes. This means that many parents had to make the long drive from Waikiki to the Pearl Harbor base – up to half an hour or more with traffic – to get their kids to school.

“You will hear them talking about whether they have to leave very early or sometimes families just go to a hotel to shower and stay at home,” Sasaki said. “As a school, we have given grace. If (the students) are late, we understand since they are from Waikiki.

The military had also provided a round-trip shuttle service between some stops in Waikiki and the affected areas, but that stopped on Friday morning.

With schools suspended for two weeks on Monday for winter break, some of the pressure is lifted as schools and staff regroup and try to catch their breath. But it’s unclear how long the no-use water directive will last, or when the state’s health ministry deems it safe to use school water again for drinking and drinking. food preparation.

DOE spokeswoman Nanea Kalani said the facilities branch has been providing clean water to its seven affected schools since December 1 for drinking, hand washing, cooking and food preparation.

“Schools are responsible for monitoring their water consumption and have been asked to conserve water,” she said by email. “Schools let the Department know when they need to reorganize further. “

On December 1, the DOH said a preliminary result of a water sample taken at Red Hill Elementary and analyzed at a University of Hawaii lab found it to contain petroleum product. Yet on December 3, the DOH said water samples taken on November 29 at Nimitz Elementary and Pearl Harbor Elementary tested negative for petroleum.

Despite the negative results, DOH spokesperson Kaitlin Arita-Chang said on Friday: “I want to stress that our no-drink advisory still applies to all users of the water supply system in the city. Navy, including schools “.

The Navy’s water supply line serves approximately 93,000 customers in total, and the water contamination has displaced up to 3,200 families. The complaints began over Thanksgiving weekend as families reported the water smelled of fuel and exhibited symptoms such as rashes, headaches, dizziness and vomiting.

This water distribution system is a vast network encompassing central Oahu and the edges of the Leeward Coast. Reports of health problems have been spread in.

Red Hill’s aging bulk fuel storage facility, the suspected source of contamination, sits just 100 feet above the aquifer that provides about 77% of Oahu’s drinking water.

DOH’s Arita-Chang said her department is working with the United States Navy, Army and Environmental Protection Agency to develop common guidelines for schools to use water. The DOH collects water samples every day and publishes the results as they come back.

Even when the tests are negative, the DOH notes that “sampling only captures contaminant levels at a given time” and it still recommends users not to consume the water.

State Representative Matt LoPresti, whose district includes Ewa Beach where Iroquois Point Elementary School is located, has regularly posted updates on the Kapilina Beach Homes complex, where many families have said they have been sickened. by water, according to KHON2.

“So yes the test results were negative, and yes people have had legitimate health problems after coming into contact with water in their homes. Both can obviously be true, ”LoPresti wrote.

According to SueAnn Thomas, an elementary school teacher at Iroquois Point, Thursday, “there is no smell, shine or evidence that the water is contaminated.” She said the school did not turn off tap water but relied on bottled water and that hot meals were prepared at nearby Campbell High.

“I think it’s important to take these precautions ahead of time,” Thomas said. “If there is a potential danger that could happen to these children at school, they are not in a safe environment. It is important to provide them with bottled water to drink.

“The general chaos of being in a school with hundreds of children – and trying to keep them safe and healthy during the pandemic and the water contaminated situation – it’s good to make a pause and take a step back and really take time for ourselves and our families, ”she added.

Additionally, the Leeward Chapter of the Hawaii State Teachers Association voted last week to call for the Red Hill fuel tank system to be decommissioned and plans to ask the HSTA board of directors to do the same.

“The impact of this fuel leak touches so many of us – at work, at home, at school,” said Julie Reyes Oda, Leeward Chapter President and teacher at Nanakuli High and Intermediate. “Everyone deserves to have clean drinking water, period. We must unite to support safe drinking water for all.

Hawaii Governor David Ige ordered the Navy to empty WWII bulk fuel storage tanks and install a drinking water treatment system, but the Navy said she would fight against this order. A hearing is due to take place on Monday morning.
