The St. Turibius School boys’ soccer team won its third straight CYO boys soccer title May 18, defeating St. Lawrence Martyr of Redondo Beach 3-1, to continue the Warriors’ three-year winning streak (their last defeat was in May 2011).

The Warriors were led by soccer coach and seventh grade teacher RaymondMoreno, who has coached the Warriors since 2005, and eighth graders (and co-captains Rene Diaz and Edwin Ocampo), who have started every game since they were sixth graders. St. Turibius is the parish school of St. Joseph Church, located on Essex Street in downtown Los Angeles.

In the third place game, American Martyrs of Manhattan Beach defeated St. Raymond of Downey, 4-1. Several Catholic high schools hosted the boys’ soccer tournament, including Damien, Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary, St. Pius-St. Matthias Academy, Crespi, St. Paul and La Salle.

‘Digging a well together’

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

Christian de Cherge, the Trappist Abbott who was martyred in Algeria in 1996, was fond of sharing this story: He had a very close Muslim friend, Mohammed, and the two of them used to pray together, even as they remained aware of their differences as Muslim and Christian.  

Aware too that certain schools of thought, both Muslim and Christian, warn against this type of prayer out of a sense that the various faiths are not praying to the same God, the two of them didn’t call their sessions together prayer. Rather they imagined themselves as “digging a well together.”
