OA students embarked on La Posadas pilgrimage

first_imgOldenburg, IN—Students in their Freshman Theology classes had the opportunity to go on “pilgrimage” recently without leaving Oldenburg Academy’s campus. They participated in a simulation based on the Hispanic tradition of La Posadas, a ritual usually enacted in the days leading up to Christmas.  The students silently moved throughout the Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Francis, chanting a simple song as they sought welcome and a “room”.  They were symbolically turned away at every door until they reached the last one where they were invited in to place the baby Jesus in his crib and then enjoy some chips and salsa. Throughout their journey, they were invited by their teacher Emma Lindle to carry the loneliness and isolation of so many in our world today and pray for them.  The Sisters who helped is this staging were S. Noella Poinsette, S. Barb Hileman, S. Laurina Schneider, S. Kate Holohan, Sr. Laure Poeling, S. Agnes Wilhelm, Sr. Ruth Eggering, S. Kathleen Branham and Associate Directors Carolyn  Meyer and Jane Schaefer.last_img read more

Val second in Auteuil contest

first_imgVal De Ferbet finished second for the Willie Mullins team as Ballynagour landed the Grade Two spoils for trainer David Pipe in the Prix la Barka at Auteuil. Tom Scudamore brought the 7-1 winner through to lead after holding a handy position for most of the two-mile-five-and-a-half-furlong contest. Ballynagour, a faller in the Punchestown Gold Cup on his previous start, pulled clear to win by five lengths from Val De Ferbet, who stayed on well from the rear under Ruby Walsh. Mullins’ other runner Gitane Du Berlais weakened out of contention after setting the pace, while the Paul Nicholls-trained Silsol had nothing left in the closing stages. Scudamore was understandably delighted at riding his first winner at the headquarters of French jump racing. He said: “It was a great thrill to come here and to have a winner at Auteuil is wonderful. I’m absolutely thrilled. It was only my second trip over here, so to win a Grade Two is fantastic. “He deserved to win another big race. He just got touched off at Aintree (by Silviniaco Conti in the Betfred Bowl). T hat was frustrating, but he’s more than made up for it. It was a great performance.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Everton boss Roberto Martinez pleased with defensive reinforcements

first_img “It has the same intensity as the Superclasico (River Plate v Boca Juniors) back home,” he said. “The fans make it very intense and when they scream you know you are in a derby. “In Argentina, I played around six or seven derbies so for me I felt normal and it was good. “Premier League football is very physical and the intensity of the game is high. “I have to keep adapting to the Premier League, but I really like it and I’m enjoying my moment and I want to keep playing.” Shorn of three of their regular back four in Seamus Coleman, John Stones and Leighton Baines, the stand-ins have stepped up and did a good job keeping Liverpool quiet in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Goodison Park. Tyias Browning, Brendan Galloway and Ramiro Funes Mori had just 17 minutes of derby experience between them – all belonging to Browning – but they helped extend Everton’s unbeaten run to seven matches in all competitions. Everton manager Roberto Martinez has been impressed with how his inexperienced, makeshift defence has coped in recent weeks. “Tyias performed with defensive arrogance, Brendan brings a smile to your face and Funes Mori and Phil Jagielka looked like a partnership that had been performing for years,” Martinez said. “Phil Jagielka has been the most consistent and best English centre-back in the last 12 months. It is no coincidence anyone around him performs.” Captain Jagielka is the only Toffees defender to play every minute of every match this season. He, too, has been pleased with way the replacements have slotted in during an injury crisis. “We knew with injuries it would be a test for the lads and they tried their hardest,” he told evertontv. “It is all part of their learning curve and fantastic for them. “It is also great for Ramiro getting this game time and learning the English game.” Funes Mori was signed from Argentinian club River Plate late in the transfer window for £9.5million but his display in the derby showed his quality.
