Crusader Stories

Mr. Gray smiles holding his advisory's turkeys

Our CTK "families" celebrated Thanksgiving "turkey style" with a household turkey wrangling competition. Advisories searched all over campus for their hidden turkeys connected as a team by ropes. House of Regalis emerged as the winners thanks to the first place finish by Mrs. Stemper's advisory. Some advisories also enjoyed Thanksgiving feasts with turkey and all the fixings!

Three student hold Marian images

Following our all-school Mass on Friday, a collection of Marian images was blessed by Chaplain Father Huber. The project is the work of the Sorority of Mary club and the result of an initiative to have Marian images in each CTK classroom. Senior Elyse Pugh noted that the "images will help students be mindful of our Blessed Mother's help in asking her son Jesus for His intercession." The Sorority of Mary club allows CTK students the opportunity to grow as a person and to focus on the wonders of our Catholic faith. 

The images include nine different Marian apparitions: Our Lady of Akita (Japan), Our Lady of Kibeho (Rwanda), Our Lady of Knock (Ireland), Our Lady of La Salette (France), Our Lady of La Vang (Vietnam), Our Lady of Fatima (Portugal), Our Lady of Guadalupe (Mexico), Our Lady of Lourdes (France), and Mystical Rose (Italy). 

The project was funded through donations to Silver & Blue through the Annual Fund.
