CYO

“Sports are not merely the exercise of muscles, but the school of moral values and of training in courage, in perseverance, and in overcoming laziness and carelessness. There is no doubt that these values are of the greatest interest for the formation of a personality which considers sports not an end in itself but as a means to total and harmonious physical, moral and social development.”
(The late Saint John Paul II’s words on Nov. 24, 1984, to Olympians who had participated in the Los Angeles Games)


CYO
St. Stan’s CYO is now a joint CYO Program called Mater Dei CYO.
This Mater Dei CYO Program is chartered by and participates in Region 20 of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s CYO Program.  This is a joint CYO Program that consists of St. Maria Goretti, St. Rose of Lima, and St. Stanislaus CYO parishes and is open to all parish youth registered at their respective parish (in order to participate in CYO the student must attend a catholic school or their parish’s PREP program).  This organization acts as a joint CYO Program of the three parishes, whose goal is to foster faith-based activities for the youth of the member parishes through the five facets of CYO: Spiritual, Service, Cultural, Social, and Athletic Activities.  The ultimate goal is to enrich the youth of the member parishes, promote the continuing formation of their faith, and support their faith journey by employing these five tenets.


Fall 2022 Sports Registration will be opening soon.  Fall Sports include Soccer – Grades K-8; Girls Volleyball – Grades 5-8; Cross Country—Grades K-8;  and NEW this fall,  a High School Corn Hole League.  Details will be available soon as we are moving to a new registration platform this year.   Check this webpage and the bulletin often and follow us on Instagram @mater_dei_pa_cyo for future announcements.  Got questions?  Email Joe Campbell @ joecampbell22@verizon.net.
