The Rec season is due to begin the 1st weekend in December. While teams have been formed, they are being reviewed for any necessary adjustments. Coaches were asked NOT to discuss or notify players regarding their teams, but we know some information has been leaked. There is NO guarantee of teams at this point so all should wait for the official release of teams and schedules.

A message from our CYO Director Mary Anne Pagnani:
St Catharine’s CYO is excited to begin the 2014-15 basketball season with our brand new floor. In case you missed the midsummer activities, All-Boro Flooring of the Bronx removed and replaced the original floor and refinished the stage floor during August. Many thanks to Philip Traynor of West Nyack and his crew for their excellent workmanship, Dom Marangi & Marangi Disposal for their generosity, and Mary McLaughlin and Dave Dinan for their guidance in seeing this project through to the end. The parish will now have the full benefit of a new floor for years to come which was fully paid for by the CYO but which has now left us with a major hole in our yearly budget. We will be holding various fundraisers throughout the coming months and we ask for your generosity in supporting this major ministry for our children. Our CYO & REC programs currently provide a healthy outlet for over 200 kids a season as well as being a major supporter of St Catharine’s parish as a whole.

Our CYO Prayer
Lord, let all gathered here today know, that we do so in Your name. Allow us to understand the meaning of our participation in this CYO activity. Make us aware of our responsibilities to all concerned, so we may grow and develop in the full reality of Christian formation. Grant us a personal acceptance of the dignity of all individuals. Above all, let us in all things demonstrate the true spirit of the "generous winner" and the "gracious loser". AMEN.
