Sports items help Father Meany make his point during a homily and promote Catholic Schools Week.

At Sunday mass on Jan. 12, Father Michael Meany of St. John Brebeuf (SJB), Niles, used a football signed by Chicago Bears Lineman Kyle Long #75 and a Blackhawks jersey (Patrick Kane #88) to illustrate a point in his homily about hard work and personal achievement.


The football will be a door prize during Catholic School’s Week which starts with a school Open House on Jan. 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The week’s events include a presentation on Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. by Bears family member Patrick McCaskey on what a Catholic education has meant to his famous family.  

 

Pictured here checking out the sports items are, l to r, Kevin England, Allie England, Christopher England, Daniel England, Christopher Gittings, Meany, Michael Curtis and Christina Curtis.
