Our teams have hosted fundraisers, led service based project, and attend Kairos.
Our goal is to teach our student-athletes to serve and to prepare them for life, including making a positive impact on our community beyond graduation. We believe it is important to recognize that our Catholic identity permeates throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
