The annual event provides an opportunity for supporters of St. Mary’s to come together for fun and fellowship while raising money to support current and future Pirates.

COLORADO SPRINGS. In the more than 130-year history of St. Mary’s High School, the Grace Center for Athletics and Community Service has only been serving the Pirate family for the last almost 12 years. But during those years, the Grace Center has played a large and important role, not just in the St. Mary’s community, but in the greater Colorado Springs community. Now this vital part of the community is in need of new turf and track at the stadium.

I just finished attending several Masses and graduations from our Catholic schools, and each was such a gift and gave me hope for the future of our diocese.  The words of the pastors, principals and students let me know we are on the right track.

COLORADO SPRINGS. Not many high school juniors can say that they’ve been a part of their school’s baseball team for more than 10 years. But St. Mary’s High School junior Nick Baca has a hard time remembering a time in his life when St. Mary’s baseball wasn’t a part of it. He started as a bat boy at the age of five and continued in that role until he was 12. When he entered St. Mary’s as a freshman in 2015-2016, he resumed his Pirate baseball career.

COLORADO SPRINGS. As Christians we are called to serve without seeking recognition for that service. As Paul wrote in Philippians, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interest of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:3-5, NIV).
