Sport and the Catholic Faith

Yesterday Joshua Keeney presented his capstone project, which he entitled "Sport Properly Directed: A Critique of Popular Contemporary Sport from a Roman Catholic Perspective," to an audience of seminary faculty, his fourth-year college peers, and other seminarians.  In his work, he discussed the more negative elements of sport that are often found in contemporary culture and how elements of Aristotle's philosophy and the Catholic tradition can make sport a healthier and more spiritual experience.

Many sports jerseys adorned the stage during Joshua's presentation, and several seminarians wore their own jerseys to the presentation as well.

Mr. Mark Woolman served as the director of Joshua's project.  Sister Gertrude Feick, OSB, served as his reader, and Sister Hilda Kleiman, OSB, served as the English standards reader.
