Video highlights good-natured basketball game between priests, students

The God Squad II, a basketball team made up of priests from across the Diocese, recently took on students from Saint John Vianney High School, Holmdel, for a friendly game of hoops to help foster vocations.

The game was caught on video by the diocesan Department of Multimedia Production.

“My game preparations … there’s some prayers involved,” Father Alberto Gamalo, parochial vicar in St. Gregory the Great, Hamilton Square, says with a smile in the video.

“Our secret weapon will be Dean Gaudio under the boards. At six foot two, that’s going to be hard to beat,” jokes Father Michael Wallack, diocesan director of vocations. Father Gaudio is pastor in St. Elizabeth Parish, Avon-by-the-Sea.

The idea for the game was to have the students interact with priests in a different way other than when they see them during school Masses or in their home parishes, Father Wallack said.
