Today we celebrate the feast day of one of our school’s patron saints – Saint Maria Goretti. “Maria may have had trouble with catechism, but she had no trouble with faith. God’s will was holiness, decency, respect for one’s body, absolute obedience, total trust. In a complex world, her faith was simple: It is a privilege to be loved by God, and to love him—at any cost.” If you wish to learn more about the life of Saint Maria Goretti consider reading the Saint Spotlight put together by our Campus Minter, Father Dalton. Link in bio. Saint Maria Goretti, pray for us.
SNG’s furry mascot, Duke, hopes that everyone continues to enjoy their 4th of July weekend. New and exciting events are coming in the Advancement Office, so stay tuned for all the fun details! Consider making a donation to SNG at any time. Donation link in bio. Saints Rule!!!
Ss. Neumann Goretti is pleased to announce that Patrick Devenney, a 2018 graduate of Immaculata University, has been named the school’s new Athletic Director. ⠀ ⠀ Mr. Devenney, for the past year, has been a member of the school’s faculty teaching Health/PE and Kinesiology as well as serving as the junior varsity head baseball coach. He quickly established himself with students, parents, and staff during a challenging year in the midst of the pandemic as a respected faculty member and coach with an admirable work ethic and academics-first mindset. Prior to his joining Ss. Neumann Goretti, he was on the faculty of West Catholic Preparatory High School, where he also was the head baseball coach. ⠀ ⠀ “It truly is an honor and a privilege to steward the next chapter of Ss. Neumann Goretti athletics, and I am extremely grateful to the leadership team for their belief in me and our shared vision for the future,” Mr. Devenney said. “As someone who has admired the athletic program for quite some time, I am excited to join the team and anxious to get started!” Mr. Devenney will formally begin his new role on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021. ⠀ ⠀ The hire comes just 14 days after long-time SNG athletic director, Charlie Szydlik, retired on June 18th, 2021, after almost 21 years of service to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Catholic schools as a football coach and athletic director. We thank him in particular for his service as Athletic Director at Ss. Neumann Goretti during a time of growth for our school community. His sharing of his experience and wisdom were extremely valuable assets to our community during his tenure. We wish Mr. Szydlik, his wife, and his family the very best in his retirement. ⠀ ⠀ Please join us in offering prayerful best wishes and welcoming Mr. Devenney to his new role. ⠀ ⠀ To read the full announcement and to learn more about Mr. Devenney click the link in our bio.
