Linda Mondzelewski, the president of the guild, said the merger made sense for a number of reasons. “Both organizations shared similar missions, both organizations helped each other with projects and events, and there was significant membership overlap.  Our union will make us a much more efficient group.”

Joe Szczerba had a plan when he went to work Sept. 15, said Oblate Father John Fisher. On his way home, he would stop at his brother Ed’s house and finalize where everyone would park two days later at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia, where Ed’s son, Andrew, would play football for Penn State against Temple.

Andrew Szczerba caught two passes that day for the Nittany Lions, but his uncle was not there to see him. In fact, Andrew played with a heavy heart after learning early the morning of Sept. 16 that his uncle, New Castle County Police Lt. Joseph Szczerba, 44, was killed after being stabbed in the neck during an altercation in Penn Acres, a neighborhood in Wilmington Manor. He was treated on the scene by fellow officers and emergency personnel but was pronounced dead after being transported to Christiana Hospital.

Dialog editor

Members of the St. Thomas More Society of the diocese were told Oct. 4 during the Red Mass at St. Ann Church in Wilmington, that religious liberty is under attack in America and they were invited to join with U.S. bishops to proclaim religious freedom for all.

That was the message the society’s lawyers and judicial professionals heard during the homily by Msgr. Ronny Jenkins, general secretary of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Bishop Malooly was the main celebrant of the liturgy that marks the annual start of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term and is named for the red vestments worn by celebrants symbolizing the Holy Spirit.

In fact, when he graduated from Delaware, Gannon held 21 Blue Hens records.

Between 1987 and 2004, he quarterbacked four different teams in the NFL, including an amazing four-year run as the starter for the Oakland Raiders. From 1999-2002, Gannon started all 64 of the team’s games, appearing in the Pro Bowl each season and being named the consensus league most valuable player in 2002. That season ended with a Super Bowl appearance, a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
