Sister Krista von Borstel, executive director of Catholic Youth Organization/Camp Howard, sent a note to CYO coaches, players and parents in advance of Lent.

“On important days such as Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and the entirety of Easter weekend, CYO does not allow sport practices, game participation or other CYO events,” wrote Sister Krista, a Sister of St. Mary of Oregon. “Be sure to encourage team members and families to attend church services at their parish or place of worship. If they do not attend church, invite them to join you!”
