On a warm, beautiful fall afternoon, seminarians and priests came together on October 14 for the first annual Priests vs. Seminarians soccer match.
Seminarians Deacon Jared Holzhuter (Diocese of Madison) and Fadie Gorgies (Chaldean Eparchy of St. Thomas the Apostle) led the Sacred Heart team to victory on and off the field. Deacon Holzhuter, who has played soccer for most of his life, tended goal for the seminarians during the first half of the game, and he co-coached the team from the sidelines during the second half. When asked what was the key to the seminarians' success, Deacon Holzhuter replied jokingly, The priests were old and tired.
Recently ordained Sacred Heart alumnus Fr. Dominic Macioce organized the match with the seminarians, bringing with him fifteen priests to compete against Sacred Heart. Despite coming up short in the first annual game, Father Macioce stated, I'm glad we could come together and compete with each other. Hopefully we can make it a yearly event.
