Basketball is one of many sports at Holy Trinity. It is definitely one of the most popular sports, too. Sports connect us to our Catholic faith in many ways. For example, basketball is a team sport. In basketball you win as a team and lose as a team. I play basketball, and it wouldn’t be as fun without a team. Your teammates cheer you on when you make a basket and support you when you make a mistake. That sounds a lot like our faith. Our faith teaches us to help others, not give up, and play fairly.
The Jesuit tradition that we believe focuses on reflection, examining our day or the preparing for the day to come. After a basketball game, we reflect on our mistakes, but more importantly we reflect on how we can improve: “In the day that I called, you answered me. You encouraged me with strength in my soul.” -Psalm 138:3
