Figure skating is a sport that requires passion and dedication. Practices continue all year round without a real off-season. A number of figure skaters attend Lourdes High School, including Ella Daniels, Estelle Huskins, Victoria Kulack, Brigid Hugo, Madelaine Hugo, and Tina Farnberg. They compete throughout the year and at the annual Rochester Figure Skating Club ice show in April.
When most people think of Lourdes High School, they don’t immediately think of theater, but inside the spectacular Lourdes’ auditorium, parents, students and faculty come to watch a story unfold on the stage. Lourdes has many opportunities for student thespians, including the fall play, the one-act play, the spring musical, and an acting and stagecraft class. The most recent show was the fall play, The Perfect Idiot.
The Rochester John Marshall/Lourdes Hockey Team has begun its final year together after the announcement last spring that the two schools would split at the end of the 2016-2017 season to form their own, separate teams. For the past three seasons, the JML team has won first place in its Big Nine Conference, and the girls on the team want to make it four in a row before they turn to potentially battling each other for their own claims to the title.
Close your eyes, but keep your heart and mind open. Place your hand over your heart and feel the slow, steady beats of blood pumping through your veins. You are alive. And you are God’s.
Every other year, students and faculty of Lourdes High School embark on an eight day pilgrimage to the cities of Rome and Assisi. Assisi, better known as the hometown of Saint Francis of Assisi, is a historically preserved town nestled in the central area of the Italian peninsula. Students will visit multiple sites, such as the San Damiano Church, that are significant to the lives of Saint Francis and Saint Clare. However, it is not simply a vacation. Prayer and self-reflection are the main focal points for the time away. Hours of preparation and study are essential for getting the most out of this once in a lifetime experience.
Chris Merrigan is the newest member of the Social Studies Department. He teaches World History, United States History, and AP United States History. “I see history as the story that connects all of us as people,” Merrigan said.

Over the course of their careers, many athletes will experience a sprain, strain, knee injury, shin splint, fracture, or dislocation, according to Myers Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center. Fortunately, there has been a 21 percent increase in the number of athletic trainers available to treat these injuries. Minnesota has one of the highest employment rates of athletic trainers in America, and one of the highest concentrations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

One specific highlight included beating rival Kasson twice, both at home and away.
2016 has seen the deaths of many celebrities and important figures of the 20th century, such as Nancy Reagan and Senator John Glenn. None, however, were as prominent as Fidel Castro, the famous, or perhaps infamous, totalitarian leader of Cuba for almost five decades.
