"Everyone Needs a Friend!"
Dear Archbishop Carroll,

The Archbishop Carroll and Saint Katherine Day School Communities firmly believe that to be true - "Everyone Needs a Friend!"  Both schools participate in the Best Buddies Program, an international organization that pairs students with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities, for a one to one friendship. We are proud that Archbishop Carroll was the first high school to sponsor a Best Buddies Chapter in PA.  The Best Buddies Club led by Carroll student officers Tyler Conboy, Clare Stoyell-Mulholland, Maria Montanez, Ken Zhang, Kelly Jacquez, Owen McMenamin, Erin McCole, Grace Toland, Chris Anderson and Caitlin Gallagher is an active club here at Carroll today. 

Tuesday was our Best Buddies Assembly that kicked off Best Buddies Week.  The theme of the assembly was  “Don’t Diss Abilities,”  and as Maria Montanez, a student officer, reminded us “ we are all blessed with special and unique abilities that shapes who we are.”  Furthermore, some of the Archbishop Carroll students involved in Best Buddies spoke of their experiences on Tuesday. They shared heartfelt stories and testimonials on why the Best Buddies program is so important to them. A Carroll International student, Ken Zhang, spoke about how the program has changed him. As he put it, “If you remember me from last year, I was standing at this exact same spot.  It may be the same spot, but it is not the same me.” Ken went on to explain how being involved in Best Buddies impacted his life and allowed him to see individuals, all individuals as people with talents and abilities. He and his buddy, Dion, get together to go to the movies or out to eat on a regular basis. It is clear to anyone that sees them together that they have developed a true friendship.

Ryan, a student from Saint Katherine Day School  asked to speak to the student body.  He introduced himself and spoke about how much he enjoys going to school at ACHS. Watching him stand before a huge crowd of students was a profound experience for not only Ryan, but for all who know him. Knowing he felt accepted enough to speak was truly heartwarming.  Being accepted by ACHS and SKDS allowed Ryan to flourish as a student and a friend.  

Caitlin Gallagher, a Carroll best buddy stated spoke to the student also. Caitlin stated, “I do Best Buddies because my friend Mike is not defined by disabilities; we are a lot more alike than different.” As Caitlin eloquently states, “I do Best Buddies because when we advocate for and include people with disabilities, everyone stands to gain.  And everyone needs a buddy!”  Both schools greatly benefit from participation in this organization.  As Caitlin reminded us on Tuesday, “It is never too late to join Best Buddies and to be the change you want to see in the world.”  

As we continue Best Buddies week, we remember that God has blessed all of us with many differing abilities and how lucky we are to be in a community where all those gifts are celebrated in such a positive way! We pledge to continue to treat all members of our special ACHS and SKDS communities with respect and to always celebrate not only what makes us different but also the many things we have in common!

Thank you,

Ms Bridget Mscisz and Mrs. Rosemary Faris 
SKDS Teachers and Best Buddy moderators

Archbishop Carroll is now LiveStreaming

Today, for the first time, Archbishop Carroll LiveStreamed our Ash Wednesday mass. This is going to be the first of many events that Carroll will LiveStream. In order to do so, we will be using the platform provided by YouTube.

Beginning our LiveStreaming endeavor with our community of prayer felt appropriate, but we don't only plan to LiveStream Masses. Our hope is to present our community to you in many ways - assemblies, pep rallies, band and choral performances, athletic events and our Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises.

Our hope is to eventually embed the YouTube video stream into a page of our website. In order to do so, according to YouTube's user guide, we need to garner more subscribers to our YouTube Page.

Please take a moment and follow the link below. Once you are on our page, click subscribe - and you're done!

Want to contribute to The Patriot Post?
We are always on the lookout for a story or photo that celebrates and highlights Archbishop Carroll and our community. If you want to submit material for the next edition of The Patriot Post, please email photos@jcarroll.org.

We look forward to seeing our vibrant community in action!
