The great 2017 earthquake of Dover was really more hype than headline.

Father James Lentini, pastor of Holy Cross parish in Dover, said the most memorable aspect of the Dec. 1 temblor was his phone lighting up from concerned friends who heard the news that a shaker measured at magnitude 4.1 and was centered just outside of Dover. Read more »

Young people discover how church ‘relates to your life’ at national conference

Ania Zdunek seems like someone who would recognize God’s presence about her in her everyday life, since she attends a private Catholic high school.

But the Archmere Academy senior from St. Mary Magdalen Parish in Wilmington realized that she did not always see God as part of her everyday life when she attended the National Catholic Youth Conference last week in Indianapolis. “Sometimes it’s hard to acknowledge God in everyday life,” she said.

For diocese’s 150th anniversary, Father Thomas Peterman releases updated book on its priests

WILMINGTON — Seventeen years ago, when the Diocese of Wilmington was celebrating Jubilee 2000, Father Thomas Peterman wrote a book, “Catholic Priests of the Diocese of Wilmington,” to memorialize the service of the men who had served its parishes, schools and other ministries.

A lot has happened since that book was released, and since the diocese will mark 150 years in 2018, an update seemed to be in order. Father Peterman has been working on it for about four years.

It will be available next week. Read more »

Wallace scores twice, McCloskey preserves lead as Sals take soccer crown

Dialog reporter

SMYRNA – Salesianum’s soccer team posed in the net, eight fingers extended to signify the school’s eighth consecutive state championship. But this was the first time this group of seniors had allowed the opponent to score in the final, and it took a herculean effort from goalkeeper Emmett McCloskey to preserve a 2-1 victory over Appoquinimink on Nov. 18 at Smyrna High School.

Bryce Wallace was the offensive hero for Sallies, scoring twice in his final high school game. That includes the title-clincher in the 57th minute, where Ethan Lupichuk took a pass from Drew Blackwell deep into the corner to the left of the Appo goal and sent a cross into the crease in front of Jaguars keeper Jason Sommer. Wallace came streaking up the middle of the box and slid, knocking the ball into the net. Read more »

Ursuline’s steady progress past few seasons indicated return to volleyball mountaintop

Dialog reporter

NEWARK – Ursuline’s 2017 state volleyball championship is the school’s first since 2009, but for coach Sue Heiss and her players – in particular the seniors – it means so much more. Taylor Wright and Sam Davis were on the varsity squad as freshmen in 2014, a campaign remembered more for the fact that the Raiders missed the state tournament than the team’s improvement upon 2013’s win total by four matches.

The Raiders’ 8-7 mark in 2014 was not enough to get them into the final 16-team state tournament. The seeds had been planted, however, for this year’s championship, which the school earned on Nov. 13 with a five-set nail-biter over Catholic Conference rival Padua at the Bob Carpenter Center.
