Bishop blesses championship rings
Bishop Joseph M. Siegel blesses the rings that members of the Reitz Memorial High School boys soccer team and staff will receive to commemorate the Tigers’ 2020 ISHAA Class 2A state championship. Reitz Memorial shut out Fort Wayne Canterbury, 3-0, on Oct. 30, 2020, to win its second straight state title — and fourth in the past five seasons. Congratulations Tigers!

Local media photograph and shoot video of Good Shepherd School students on Feb. 5 as the youngsters load some of the 3,300 items they collected the week of Feb. 1 to benefit the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry in Evansville. Principal Kristen Girten tells The Message that students also collected more than $3,400 in cash donations to benefit the SVdP food pantry. The school holds an annual competition among grades to collect food and donations for the pantry. This year, Girten and the staff scheduled the competition to coincide with the national observance of Catholic Schools Week. One grade annually wins the competition; and this year, for the first time, the title went to the “Class of 2021” – the eighth grade. Congratulations!
