Pandas swing for par on new varsity team

By

Staff reporter

WILMINGTON – The traditional spring sports offerings for high school girls include softball, track and field, soccer, lacrosse and tennis. At Padua Academy, the available options have gone beyond the ordinary, and the Wilmington school has added a few sports not common in a high school setting. One of those is golf, which is in its second year as a varsity sport. (The school also added tennis this year.)

The golf team was a club for two years before becoming a varsity sport last season, senior Taylor Ohlinger said. The Pandas went 3-3-1 in their inaugural year and started the 2012 season with a 3-2 win over Cumberland Regional High School of New Jersey.

Dover couple, tested in military and on home front, become Catholic

By

Staff reporter

DOVER – Years of spiritual seeking ended at the Easter vigil April 7 at Holy Cross Church as Michel and Lisa Kasday entered the Catholic Church. For the Camden-Wyoming couple, it wasn’t really that simple. In their lives, few things are.

Like many couples in this part of Kent County, the Kasdays are a military family. Mike, 40, is a staff sergeant and an engine mechanic at Dover Air Force Base, and his wife is studying nursing at Delaware Technical Community College. They have dealt with deployments and work schedules that are anything but 9-to-5.

By

Staff reporter

 DOVER – All the elements required for a baptism were in place at Holy Cross Church on April 4, the Wednesday before Easter. There was the adorable baby, Payton Amelia Garnsey, in her white dress; two beaming parents and big sister; and godparents and other family.

Also in the church, seated next to the baptismal font, were 16 pre-kindergarten students, classmates of Reagan Garnsey, whose sister was the guest of honor. They were there because Reagan’s parents, Angela and Brian, wanted the class and its teacher, Patricia Wegemer, to share in their special day.

A pilgrim’s report from Catholic Youth Ministry’s cross walk

By

Special to The Dialog

 WILMINGTON — On March 31, a cold and rainy Saturday, I joined 900 other young people for a three-mile walk, carrying the Pilgrimage Cross through the streets of Wilmington.  The third annual diocesan We Walk by Faith Pilgrimage, sponsored by Catholic Youth Ministry, was an opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to our faith and to remember Jesus’ journey through the streets of Jerusalem.

When we began our journey at St. Thomas the Apostle Church, Bishop Malooly reminded us of the three practices he encourages us to live out each day: to pray every day, serve others, and smile. Bishop Malooly told us that as we walked, we could show others how important our faith was as we demonstrated these practices.

Bishop Malooly: HHS health care mandates threaten religious freedom

By

Special to The Dialog

SMYRNA – Bishop Malooly is calling for Catholics to speak out against a federal mandate that, despite a narrowly written exemption for religious institutions, would require many Catholic institutions to provide insurance coverage for contraceptives and sterilizations.

The health care reform act’s guidelines by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services “threaten religious freedom and our rights more than ever,” he told about 40 people at a Mass for the Unborn at St. Polycarp Church March 26. Catholic colleges and hospitals, and other institutions, would not be covered by the religious exemption. “We need to respond and to act.”
