COLORADO SPRINGS. Sydney Burtwistle’s 17th birthday was a memorable one; that day she landed in Rome for her first trip overseas. Two days later, she and her family were scheduled to go to the Vatican where they would meet Pope Francis. While exciting, the trip was bittersweet for Sydney and her family, who were invited to the Vatican so the youngest member of the Burtwistle family, Olivia, could be blessed by the Pope. Olivia was diagnosed with Juvenile Batten Disease in 2011, just two months shy of her eighth birthday.

COLORADO SPRINGS. In the span of life, the four years spent in high school can seem small. Yet the impact that those four years can have on a life is far from insignificant. Each October St. Mary’s High School recognizes former high school athletes for their contributions on the field by inducting new members into its Athletic Hall of Fame and new teams into the Exemplary Sports Team Enshrinement. And each year, the inductees note the positive impact that their high school experiences had on their lives.

COLORADO SPRINGS. Living out the Catholic faith means working to make the world a better place. That goal aligned perfectly with the Future City competition, which one St. Mary’s High School student participated in all three years of middle school. Not only did the competition teach Alex Baburnic, now a sophomore at St. Mary’s, to look for physical ways to change the world, but it gave him the confidence that he could succeed in doing just that.
