Athletes from six Catholic high schools assembled Sept. 17 in the Diocesan Chancery, Lawrenceville, for the annual Catholic Athletes for Christ Leadership Day, with the aim of this year’s meeting being to foster new relationships with one another and focus on building the future of CAC in the Diocese of Trenton.

As your Bishop …I pray for you every day,” Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., said in meeting with the students and school faculty members. “The Diocese is proud of you – win or lose.”

The Catholic Athletes for Christ program is designed to encourage young people to make the connection between their Catholic faith and athletics. Bishop O’Connell is a member of the national organization’s episcopal board.

During the event, students met in small groups to meet new people from others schools to get to know one another and were asked their opinions about the CAC program. Students then made their way to Notre Dame High School, located adjacent to the Chancery, to pray a decade of the Rosary in the school’s grotto before eating lunch.
