The EC fall athletes returned to practice last week. As a part of the Catholic High School League, faith is essential to all aspects of the students’ lives, including athletics. On August 15, the athletes celebrated the Feast of the Assumption, a holy day of obligation, with a Mass celebrated by Fr. Thomas Salazar, LC and Fr. Brian Hoelzen, LC. Many of the families were also in attendance. Fr. Thomas welcomed the athletes back in his homily and motivated them to give their all, recognizing that rewards come in all different ways. The Feast of the Assumption celebrates Our Lady’s heavenly reward for her saintly life on earth.
