Saint of the Day:  Saint Lorenzo Ruiz and Companions. Saint Lorenzo Ruiz, the first canonized Filipino martyr, became a witness to the faith almost by accident.

Celebrating 70 Years of School History: Did you know that the tennis courts out front weren’t the first ones built on school property? In 1954 two courts were located on the parking lot directly behind the (now Koetter) gymnasium in October 1954. It consisted of 220 feet of chain-link fencing around a space that doubled as an outdoor volleyball court. The courts remained for less than a decade as the space was needed for parking – and eventually site of the Larkin Center.

But that’s the kind of thing that Jesus did. https://www.franciscanmedia.org/saint-of-the-day/saint-matthew
