A Fitting Tribute to Eileen Doherty


Congratulations to everyone that worked so hard to put together the Eileen Doherty Volleyball Tournament.  It was a huge undertaking that took many, many hours of work by a large number of people.  The tournament included boys and girls teams from 5th grade through 8th grade.  All teams had a good time.  What a wonderful way to start the 2015 volleyball season.  As a result, over $9000 was raised to start the Eileen Doherty Scholarship fund that will go to a graduating 8th grader going on to Catholic High School.

This prayer was heard at the tournament and we offer it to all the volleyball teams to use before their matches.


Gentle Father, we thank You for the gifts and talents You have given us.

We ask You to help us use them today as we play these volleyball games.

Guide our hands, our feet and our mouths that we may show good sportsmanship and kindness to all.

And let us take the skills we are learning here with us as we go forth

to SET a good example,

to PASS on to others Your love,

and to SERVE You in all we do.

and watch over all those who have been touched by Eileen's life. 

We ask this through your Son, Jesus Christ.  Amen
