The Paul VI Boys's Lacrosse Community is involved with many different community outreach programs. Our mission at Paul VI, both on the field of play and in our daily lives, can best be summerized by our principal Ms. Colwell. Her comment sums up our operation, both on and off the field, and reminds us what we are all called to do.
“At Paul VI Catholic High School, we believe that service to one is service to God. Operation Warrior Outreach is a program being spearheaded by the Boys’ lacrosse team and coach, but all our students trust in the words of the patron of our school, St. Frances de Sales, who said “It is our works and not our words that give testimony to who we are.” When we serve, we give honor to God; and what better way to honor those who serve us by finding ways in which to make their lives a little more comfortable as they go about protecting all we hold dear.”
Operation Warrrior Outreach
Operation Warrior Outreach was initially inspired by the Adopt-A-Solider Platoon program and guided by head coach Bob Waters, Patrick Zanelotti, Paul VI Campus Ministry (Father Kelly and Joyce Krolicki) and Paul VI Boys' Lacrosse Association to reach out to our Combat Warriors with care packages. Our purp
ose and goal is to support our troops who are in harm's way every day. Lacrosse is truly America's first game and was played among Native American warriors. While our student athletes face tough athletic competition on the fields of friendly strife, we remember our combat troops do battle every day on unforgiving fields. Our care packages and prayers are a small token of appreciation for our soldiers' honor, dedication, service, and patriotism.
To commemorate our project and its ongoing success we have designed a T-shirt for our sponsors. T-Shirts will be on sale at every home game. Look for the lacrosse courtesy table at the entrance to the stadium for more information and to purchase a T-Shirt. Also, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
