Faith Bowl Winners
Fifteen schools participated in the Faith Challenge Bowl held on Friday, April 29, 2016 at St. Pius X High School. This is a competition to highlight our students’ knowledge of the Catholic Faith. Teams of three students from each school competed in the Intermediate Division (grades 3-5) and Middle School Division (grades 6-8). The competition was full of excitement and all participants amazed us with the extent of their knowledge. Our faith is celebrated as a gift to be known and shared freely.
Congratulations to our very own Joli Tavenner and Arritt siblings, Nathan and Natalie, for winning 3rd place at the archdiocesan Faith Bowl Challenge! They competed against the 14 other schools in the Archdiocese and gave our little school a big presence at this event. We couldn't be more proud!
Distinguished Disciple - Nathan Ariatt
May 9, 2016
Annually, the Archdiocese of Santa Fe annually hosts the Distinguished Disciple Dinner at the Hotel Albuquerque. Nathan Ariatt was selected as our distinguished disciple..
This year’s awards took place on May 6, 2016. Students, teachers, and volunteers alike were nominated by their school communities as examples of Christ-like character. The Archdiocese recognized 31 individuals from 16 schools who emanate genuinely distinguished disciple-hood. Awardees regularly reach out to those who are less fortunate, volunteer for projects to help the school and larger community, are compassionate and caring to all, and live out Catholic faith on a daily basis.
According to this definition, Distinguished Disciples:
1) Make a conscious choice to be followers of Christ
2) Live that choice through actions regardless of the cost to themselves
3) Treat all they have - both talents and possessions - as blessings to be shared with others
4) Build the kingdom of God though their example of joyful generosity and sacrifice
