On October 13th, the 99th anniversary of the great miracle of the sun in Fatima, Portugal, a beautiful statue of Our Lady of Fatima was blessed and placed in a hand-carved niche in the 8th grade hallway. The statue was presented to the Academy by the Class of 2015 as their class gift. The Class had chosen this title of Our Lady for themselves during their years at the Academy. At the conclusion of Benediction, the Litany of Loretto was intoned and the entire Academy processed by torchlight to the place of the blessing. A decade of the Rosary was said for the members of the donating Class.fatima2016
On the first day of the month dedicated to the Holy Rosary, the Academy headed to Saint Mary of the Woods in Terre Haute, IN for a pilgrimage. Stopping at the shrine to Our Lady of Fatima (Joyful), the cemetery for the Sisters of Providence (Sorrowful) and the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes (Glorious), the entire 15 decades were prayed. The short walks in silence between locales provided moments of meditation and reflection on the beautiful grounds.
For the 4th time in 12 years, the Lions of La Salette have captured the cross country championship at the North Vermillion Invitational. The team was led by seniors Patrick Martin and the Roth twins, James and Matthew. The Lions placed first with 43 points, defeating the champion of the last two years, Seeger High School of Indiana, who scored 52. The other varsity runners, in order of finish, were freshman Daniel Crouse and seniors Jacob McDonough, Anthony Halligan, and Jake Schwendeman.
Please keep us in your prayers as we set out on this wonderful voyage of formation—forming boys into Catholic gentlemen!
