It's a "Clean Sweep" at the Parish Life Conference in Grand Rapids, MI! We brought home the Bible Bowl and the Oratorical Trophies!
Team St. Mary had an incredible performance in Grand Rapids, MI, during the Midwest Diocese Parish Life Conference held from June 24-28, 2015.
On Thursday, St. Mary's Teen team won first place in the Bible Bowl Competition. Congratulations to the members of the team: Marlena Sweiss, Salena Ibrahim, and Matthew Ibrahim. Our team will represent the Midwest Diocese at the National Bible Bowl competition that will take place during the Archdiocesan Convention next month in Boston.
