Cardinal Pacelli students Ben Habel, Sadie Langer, Christine Moore, and William Heidelberg attended the Purcell Marian Leadership Conference which was held April 23, 2015. This Conference is open to students from Catholic grade schools in and around Cincinnati, who are identified for demonstrating outstanding leadership qualities.
Now in its ninth year, the Conference shapes young leaders through team building and small group activities. A concurrent program for parents is held on campus during the Conference, and features guest speakers who share powerful insights into cultivating leadership in young people.
Take Part in a Mount Lookout Tradition
Many in the east side community kick-off their summers by attending JuneFest, a Mount Lookout tradition that has taken place on the first Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of June since the 1970s. Our Lord Christ the King Church and Cardinal Pacelli School host arguably one of the best parish festivals in the city. The event, known as “JuneFest,” is fully planned and operated by parish and school volunteers and is a significant source of revenue for the parish.
Mark your calendars to attend the festival June 5th, 6th, and 7th. As is the tradition, Friday night is for adults only (over 21) and will feature the band Naked Karate Girls, a gambling tent, and fellowship. Saturday and Sunday will be filled with carnival rides and games, food for every kid at heart, a silent auction, gambling (this is a Catholic festival, after all), and our major raffle drawing.
There will be three new events added to JuneFest this year. RunFest, a 5K running event powered by Fleet Feet will be held Saturday, May 30th beginning at 8:30am. HoopsFest, a 3-on-3 basketball competition for adults, and CanFest, a 3-dimensional canned food construction competition will be added to the festivities on June 6th. As if that were not enough, an authentic Italian dinner will be served Sunday evening, June 7th. These additional offerings help to round out the traditional church festival, attracting a broader age group from not only the parish itself, but also the residents of the Cincinnati community.

Our PTO is pleased to award a $500 community service scholarship to an 8th grade student who will be attending a Catholic school next year. Deadline to apply is May 15th and the winner will be announced at the 8th grade awards ceremony on May 27th. This award will be based primarily on how the student reflects on the impact of their volunteer experience on themselves, as well as, the population they served. That quantity of volunteering is not as important as the students reflection. Click here for an application: Pope Francis Scholarship 2015
Pictured here is the student who was awarded this scholarship in 2014. She now attends school at Ursuline Academy.
