The St. Mary’s High School volleyball team hosted a series of volleyball camps last week, which included three sessions with girls and boys in the fifth through 12th grades. The camp partnered with Divine Redeemer's Food Pantry this year for our Food Pantry Challenge! For every pantry item campers brought in, their name was entered to win one of two volleyballs! One winner of the winners, pictured here, is Rachel Limb, an eighth grader at Divine Redeemer and sister to current SMHS student Jacob Limb. The partnership was a beautiful way to connect the cultures of the two schools. Philanthropy is a central value that connects all schools in the Catholic school systems and has roots reaching into the athletic programs. It is who we are. #SMHSGirlsVolleyball #SMHSInspiredByFaith #SMHSUnitedByCommunity

It was an unconventional graduation. But on June 13—three months to the day after distancing learning was announced—the class of 2020 gathered at The Grace Center to celebrate commencement. The last minute approval of parents and guardians being able to attend just added to the joy everyone felt for the seniors. To see all of the photos from the day, check out Diane Torrence's album at dianetorrence.smugmug.com/SMHS-Class-of-2020/Graduation/ Thanks, Diane, for documenting this special, yet unconventional day! #HeartofSMHS #SMHSPirates2020 #FAITHfullyProvidingKNOWLEDGEtoOurCOMMUNITY #SMHSUnitedByCommunity

We will work with you.
“If you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory” (Col. 3:1-4) #SMHSInspiredByFaith #SMHSUnitedByCommunity (Artwork: Lydia Yi '20)
