For Trenton Catholic Academy senior Angie Labissiere, attending The Catholic University of America, Washington, and receiving the Most Reverend David M. O’Connell Service Scholarship is a dream come true.

“I truly feel privileged to be chosen as the winner of the Bishop O’Connell Service Scholarship. Being able to attend college is a dream that I’ve always longed for,” the Hamilton school student said. 

“The fact that this scholarship is solely based on service means so much to me because service is a major part of my life. I owe all my blessings to the different service projects I have been a part of; they all played a huge part in breaking me out of my comfort zone and shaping me into the person I am today.”

St. John Vianney centerfielder celebrates 100th career hit

Watching Lindsey Baron tear into a pitch and send it screaming through an outfield gap or charging a ball and gunning a strike to home plate to nail a stunned runner by 10 feet, one could never imagine her performing on a stage not too long ago.

The Torch youth ministry group in St. Dominic Parish has been putting in a tremendous amount of community service over the past months. From coat drives and pasta dinners to letter-writing campaigns and helping the homeless, there seems to be no task too small for the Brick parish’s teens.

“I am thankful that I am able to participate in all of these service opportunities,” said Jeffrey Frankenburg, a 13-year-old youth ministry member. “I know that I am very lucky to have what I have, and I like that I can give back while having fun with my friends.”
