There is a lot of tournament action this week involving atholic school teams and here are the schedule and results for those teams this week.

The girls lacrosse semifinal games were held Tuesday night, but both Catholic schools that had advanced that far went down to defeat. Five-time defending state champion and top seed Cape Henlopen defeated Ursuline, 23-3, while Archmere fell to Charter, 15-11. The Auks’ season ended at 14-3, and seniors Amanda Olsen and Kate Payne ended their careers by scoring five goals each against the Force.

Charter and Cape meet Thursday night at 7 at Dover.

The first round of the boys lacrosse tournament began on Tuesday. Salesianum, the top seed, easily dispatched Delaware Military Academy, 15-1. The Sals host the winner of Wednesday night’s matchup between Tower Hill and Sussex Tech. The second-round game will be Saturday.

St. Mark’s advanced to the second round with a 23-2 rout of Indian River. The Spartans, seeded third, next play Saturday against 11th-seeded Middletown, who upset sixth-seeded Delmar on Tuesday.

Archmere, which is seeded seventh, opens tournament play Wednesday at home vs. Caravel at 4 p.m. The Auks are 11-4 but are coming off a 9-8 loss to Delmar. Caravel is also 11-4. Admission is $5. Should the Auks advance, they will meet the winner of the Cape Henlopen-Brandywine game, also scheduled for Wednesday.

Division II girls soccer moves into the second round on Wednesday as No. 1 Archmere plays Delmarva Christian at 5:30 p.m. at Caravel Academy. The Auks, who had a first-round bye, were 14-1 in the regular season, including a 7-0 shutout of Delmarva Christian on April 5.

Padua, the second seed in Division I, opens tournament play Thursday vs. Newark at 5:30 p.m. at Caravel. The Pandas finished the regular season 13-1-1, while the Yellow Jackets are 10-3-2.

The baseball brackets will not be completed until the regular season ends on Wednesday. Pairings will be announced Thursday. Three Catholic schools – St. Mark’s, Salesianum and Archmere – are expected to make the tourney, with first-round games scheduled for Saturday.

Finally, the softball regular season ended Tuesday, and tournament pairings should be out Wednesday or Thursday. Padua should be in the field, but other Catholic schools are on the bubble. The postseason begins Saturday.

Can’t find an ancestor’s grave? Catholic Cemeteries launches an app to lead you to final resting places

WILMINGTON — So, you’ve finally decided to knock that genealogy project off the to-do list, and one of your first stops is Cathedral Cemetery off Lancaster Pike in Wilmington, where two generations of your family are buried.

You’ve packed a notebook and pen, charged the laptop and have plenty of room on your cell phone for photographs. But it’s been a while since you’ve visited the cemetery, the office is closed for the weekend and you have to find the graves on your own. Instead of a nice start on the family tree, you spent 90 percent of your time walking up and down rows of headstones looking for a grandfather or aunt.

Well, thanks to Catholic Cemeteries of the Diocese of Wilmington, those days are in the past. The organization has launched an app for smartphones and tablet computers that makes it easy not only to find a grave, but also to create a digital memorial for the deceased. It is another way to help the people served by Catholic Cemeteries, which operates Cathedral, All Saints and Gate of Heaven in Sussex County. Read more »

Wilmington pastor will also lead Ministry for Black Catholics office

By

Dialog Editor

 

Little more than a year after his arrival in the Diocese of Wilmington, Franciscan Father Paul M. Williams, pastor of St. Joseph Parish in Wilmington, has been named director of Ministry for Black Catholics.

Bishop Malooly named Father Williams to the post on May 5, four months after the death of Preston Taylor, who ran the office for five years.

Father Williams admits he was “kind of reluctant at first to take the job because of the very fact I am new to the diocese. What made me decide to take it was I do have experience.” Read more »

Deacon Ed Lynch exudes energy and good humor. It’s an approach to life that’s evident through his 73 years of education; marriage of more than 50 years to Aline D’Iorio, and their raising of three children — Edmund, Teresa and Leslie; 49 years as a lawyer; 27 years as an ordained deacon; and his avocations as a marathon runner and third-degree black belt karate competitor.

Family, career and church is the order of commitment the church expects from its deacons, and it’s a path Lynch is happy to follow. Read more »
