Sacred Heart Academy sophomore Mary Rose Hitt and freshman Mia Capozzoli were named 2013 Brine National High School All-Americans and were selected to represent the Midwest Region at the 2013 Brine National Lacrosse Classic held in Boyds, Md., June 30 to July 3.
Trinity High School senior Sean Link has achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. He is a member of Troop 477, which is affiliated with St. Aloysius Church in Pewee Valley, Ky.
For his Eagle Scout Service Leadership Project, Link updated the Marian Grotto area behind St. Aloysius’ chapel with a large natural stone patio, sidewalk, steps and a seating area.
He dedicated his project to the Sisters of Mercy, who previously owned the property, named Mount Mercy, and to Mary Pound, a longtime St. Aloysius parishioner and a frequent visitor to the grotto.
St. Aloysius School has begun using the grotto for outdoor classes and religious reflection, but all are welcome to enjoy the spiritual place located in the wooded area behind the school, a news release from the school said.
