Fighting Irish Youth Football Needs You!

Posted by on Feb 25, 2015 in School News



Fighting Irish Youth Football needs you!


We know it’s early to begin thinking about football but much needs to happen to prepare for the upcoming 2015 Season.

FIYF is part of the Mid State Youth Football League, and the League has informed us that we are required to field both Junior Varsity (3rd and 4th grades) and Varsity (5th and 6th grades) teams this year or we can no longer participate in the League!

We must let the League know by March 22, 2015 if we are going to have enough players for both teams.  If your son is interested in playing, please complete this form and return to your son’s teacher.  The League allows us to have players that attend Lancaster City Schools on our teams as long as they are registered parishioners of any of the parishes in Lancaster, so spread the word to your friends that do not attend one of our Catholic schools!  As you can imagine, not having a youth program has a negative impact at the high school level.  Please help us keep the Fighting Irish Football spirit alive at the youth level.  If you have questions please feel free to contact

Thanks for your support!

NBC4i Make a Difference Grant

Technology is Elementary!


Please help St. Mary School receive NBC4i’s Make a Difference Grant!  Thanks to the hard work of our own Miss Van Evra, we have put together a “Technology is Elementary” grant application in the small schools category for this year’s competition.

In order to move into semi-finals consideration, we need to get as many votes for St. Mary as we possibly can between now and March 23.  All you have to do is log on to this link, register as a new voter, and then vote once every day until voting concludes! It will only take you one minute each day!

This $10,000 grant will make an incredible difference in providing more LearnPads and Chromebooks for our students. We can do this!

Let’s go IRISH!

Track and Field Assistant Coaches Needed

Posted by on Feb 21, 2015 in School News

Dear St. Mary Community,
Due to a fantastic opportunity of advancement for one of our coaches, we have been left a little short handed going into track and field season, which officially starts March 9th.  We would like to ask if anyone has (or knows someone that has) track & field experience, has graduated high school, and would like to dedicate time to help our young student athletes to please contact us immediately. The preferred candidate must have completed or be willing to complete all of the requirements for a Pupil Activity Permit through ODE, Protecting God’s Children, and CPR certification in a timely manner. This is a one time stipend position and would be a great opportunity/resume builder for any young alumni currently in college interested in a career in coaching or anyone else interested in the growth and development of our young student athletes.
Christina Messerly will still be our head coach, but we would like to add 1 or 2 assistant coaches (if possible) to help her out.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration to help us find the right candidate in this short period of time.
Miss Cale and Mr. Eyerman

Internet Prayer

Almighty and eternal God, who created us in Thy image and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful, especially in the divine person of Thy Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, that, through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and Doctor, during our journeys through the internet we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
