Delone Catholic Plays in Its Third Straight District 3 Final

Weather many times gets little attention when determining a football game, but on a rainy, raw night at J.T. Flaherty Field at Delone Catholic High School in McSherrystown, the sloppy conditions gave both top-seeded Delone Catholic and Steel High fits all night in the 1A District 3 championship.
It marked the third year in a row that the Squires have made the finals coming up a whisker short in 2018 to York Catholic and then to Upper Dauphin last year. And it was Steel High who came out sluggish, turning the football over twice early which led to an early Squire touchdown. Delone Catholic had a chance to put the Rollers in a deep hole after a second turnover gave Delone a short field. But the Rollers got a key defensive stop and drove the field to knot the score at 7-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Vatican Secretariat of State Provides Context of Pope Francis Civil Union Remark

The Vatican’s Secretary of State has asked papal representatives to share with bishops some clarifications regarding comments on civil unions made by Pope Francis in a recently released documentary, according to the apostolic nuncio to Mexico.

The clarifications explain that the pope’s comments do not pertain to Catholic doctrine regarding the nature of marriage as a union between one man and one woman, but to provisions of civil law.
