On November 1st, just after a year of fundraising, St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School’s home court was officially opened and blessed by Bishop John Noonan. The entire school community along with the Morning Star students gathered by the new basketball court located behind St. Charles. Students erupted in cheers as former Orlando Magic players Bo Outlaw and Nick Anderson, along with “Stuff” led them in free throws, jump shots, and cheers.
“Recreation is not just for fun, it also helps children grow in their relationship with God and each other,” said Principal Nathan Nadeau. Up until the construction of the new court, St. Charles and Morning Star students were sharing facilities at Bishop Moore Catholic High School. “God has blessed up with the ability to play and be a part of sports,” Nadeau continued. “Without a doubt, Jesus played games as a child with his friends. Our children should be taught that our faith comes with us when we are on the court or field or competing, not hidden under a bushel. Our faith should always be visible, especially when competing in sports, for all to see and to glorify God.”
