Scholarly success: Xavier Nelson, a graduating eighth grader at Our Lady of Lourdes School, Richmond, has been named the winner of the Debbie Robson Merit Scholarship which covers four years of high school tuition at The Steward School.
An OLL student since the fourth grade, Xavier noted that what OLL “has taught me in and out of the classroom, is to put God before anything else. God has helped me through so many challenging and hard times during my career at Lourdes, but it was because of him that I got through it all. We’ve prayed the rosary, gone to Mass and have had very meaningful religion classes.”
Invested: The Richmond Region of the Order of Malta hosted the Solemn Liturgy of Investment of John McCulla into the Order of Malta on Saturday, March 13, at St. Bridget, Richmond. Bishop Barry C. Knestout presided, assisted by Msgr. William H. Carr and Father Stefan Migac. Gregory J. Granitto and Louise D. Hartz conducted the convocation.
