MD Saints vs OLMC Templars

This year the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Templars made the trip from Ontario, Canada to take on the Mater Dei Saints in our annual tournament. Matching head to head in chess, ping-pong, soccer, volleyball and other competitions, the OLCMA Templars were able to pull off the win this year, taking away the coveted "Vas Honorabile cup"...until next year!

The cup, named for that title of the Blessed Virgin Mary taken from her Litany ("Vessel of Honor" ), is a good reminder of what unites us: the love and service of Our Lord and the Lady whom both schools call their patroness. The sung Mass on Laetare Sunday, chanted and served by boys from both schools together, reinforced that union.
