FEAST OF ALL SOULS 11/1

November is the time the Catholic community is especially mindful of our beloved dead. Our faith assures us that the bond of joy and love we shared in life does not end with death.

 

As an expression of our faith, and in gratitude for the community that is Gloucester Catholic, we will soon ask our faculty, staff and students to list those whom they would like to remember during this month so that we can place these names near the altar in the Dominican chapel to be remembered in our Masses, prayers and devotions. We invite you to send any names you would like to be included in the same Masses, prayers and devotions during November. Please complete the attached form link send your intentions to pramos@gchsrams.org for inclusion in our remembrance.

Thank you.

In addition she earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Widener University in May 2017, and is excited to take on her new post as a head coach.

“I have found a new love for the sport and have been able to guide student athletes on and off the field,” said Glassman. “I feel that my background in lacrosse and physical therapy will allow me to train the students to be hard-working, dedicated and winning student athletes. I will add the perfect dynamic to this team!

Trish McNutt Green Inducted Into Camden County Sports Hall of Fame

Trish GreenTrish McNutt Green, a 1982 GCHS graduate who has been part of seven state championship girls basketball teams as both a player and coach, was inducted into the Camden County Sports Hall of Fame on Thursday, October 25, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill.

Trish played for Gloucester Catholic from 1978 to 1982. She was the starting point guard on two Group I state championship teams. Driven to make her teams succeed, Trish was an exceptional leader and demonstrated unselfish play at all times. Although she had very talented players around her, her style of play made them better. Players such as Mary Klinewski, Michele Jensen and Lisa Angelotti all enjoyed enhanced careers due to the point guard skills that Trish possessed.

Trish was known for her scoring but for her amazing court vision that enabled her to feed passes to teammates for wide-open layups and jump shots. She could score when called upon — she was the leading scorer in her final game in winning the 1982 Group I state championship against Morris Catholic.

The Courier-Post named Trish as the South Jersey Player of the year for the 1981/1982 season. She accepted a scholarship to Fresno State University due to her excellent play and accomplishments at the high school level. Unfortunately, her college career ended too soon with a devastating knee injury.

Trish is also the most successful girl’s basketball coach in South Jersey history. As head coach, she won five state championships at Haddonfield Memorial High School – 1993, 1994, 1997, 1998, and 1999. No other girls coach in SJ history has won five state championships.
