NDCL community celebrates opening Mass
Thanks to the space provided by Lion Stadium and the wonders of live-streaming technology, the entire NDCL community continued an important annual tradition by celebrating opening Mass for the 2020-2021 school year on September 8, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Chaplain Father Jim Caddy led NDCL in prayer.
Director of Student Leadership Mr. Ben Lozar relied on his experience as a geometry teacher to create a seating-grid formation on the field that physically distanced our 675 in-person students and all faculty and staff members. Assistant Admissions Director Mr. Quinn Malone managed the live video feed of the Mass for our 35 live-streaming learners and any other persons who wished to join us.
Following the Mass, senior Kelly McGraw addressed the student body. Kelly is this year’s Student Activity Board President.
“We have to remember to make as many memories as possible and enjoy the small things that happen every day because we are only in high school once,” Kelly told the students.
“I am so glad we are all able to be here to celebrate Mass, and I have high hopes for what this school year will bring,” she continued. “It is important to remember the power of our community against the challenges we are forced to face and to all work together to roar with the spirit and make this year the best it can possibly be.”
