Legendary Carroll Football Coach Joe McNichol passes away
A message from Carroll president Francis E. Fox, '77:

It is with a very heavy heart that I share with you the news that former Carroll Football Coach Joe McNichol passed away this past Saturday, Nov. 17.

Joe was known as the “Father of Carroll football,” and was one of the original staff members of the boy’s school hired by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
He was head coach from 1969-1976, compiling a record of 48-37-2 in eight seasons, including two City Championships (1971 team pictured below).  Joe held many roles including faculty member, Athletic Director, Student Moderator and Business Manager.  

We were blessed to have Joe with us for a last tour at Carroll from 2014 through this past September. What a gift to our community these last years have been.  

None of these positions was as important as Joe’s role as a leader of young men and a coach on and off the field. His positive impact and influence, the lessons he taught countless young men over the years at Carroll continue to influence many. What an incredible legacy! I was proud to call Joe my friend and the real challenge for me and for each of us is to carry on, in our own way, the rich legacy Joe McNichol left us. Joe loved Carroll and we could honor him in no greater way.  

Rest in peace, Coach.

Fall Show
Archbishop Carroll Theatre Society presents:  Godspell , a musical written by Steven Shwartz ( Wicked, Pippin ) and primarily follows the Gospel of Matthew. We are shown the parables and teachings of Jesus Christ ( Alex Brown ), his love and compassion for community and his acceptance of all men and women through immense empathy.

This fall production has focused heavily on building community. Each song in the first act will be regarded as an organic building of community. There are four possible lead soloists for these songs, and the actors themselves will not know who is leading until the moment their name is called. Our actors are preparing for a truly ensemble piece, and what's more exciting is that each of the four performances will be utterly unique in its creation.

Godspell  runs November 29, 30 and December 1 at 7:00 p.m., and December 2 at 2:00 p.m. Single tickets are $15 at the door, and packs of tickets are available online and through the Student Affairs Office in Rm. 219 until Thursday at 2:30. Four packs of tickets are $55; packs of six are $75. To purchase presale ticket packs - please visit Room 219 or click  HERE . Students of Archbishop Carroll are free of charge with a valid student ID.

Godspell  at Archbishop Carroll will truly be unlike anything you've ever seen in high school theatre. Come experience the community. Come experience the passion. Come sing about love.
