Fortnight for Freedom Contest
5/29/2014

The Fortnight for Freedom contest is open to all students in K through 12 and supports the USCCB's national initiative, "Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve", occurring June 21 through July 4, 2014. Catholics throughout the Nation are encouraged to engage in prayer, study, and peaceful public action to remind ourselves and others about the importance of religious liberty and the freedom to serve the poor and vulnerable in accord with the Church's teaching. The goal of the contest is to encourage young Catholics and their families to discuss how the threats to religious liberty hinder the freedom to serve the poor and reflect on this understanding through the creation of original artwork and video. Please note, the poster contest is open to Kindergarten through 5th grade and the video contest is open to 6th through 12th grade. The deadline for submission has been extended to June 16. If you have any questions, please contact Samantha Hall (Samantha.Hall@archbalt.org).

Mission Trip Prayer Partners
4/24/2014

If the prayer of one man avails much, just think about what the prayers of two or more people will accomplish”. We are looking for members of the Spalding community (students, parents, faculty/staff) to sign up as prayer partners for the students and moderators going on the summer mission trips. A prayer partner would be assigned a specific student or moderator to pray for the duration of the mission trip(s). Trip dates are June 15th – 20th for Habitat for Humanity; July 13th – 19th for Haiti; July 28th – August 2nd for Camden. If you would like to be a prayer partner, please email Mrs. Sharon Dols at dolss@archbishopspalding.org with the specific trip you would like to help with. Volunteering as a prayer partner is a beautiful and easy opportunity to be involved with our mission experiences. 

Congratulations Ronan O'Shea '15!
4/10/2014

Congratulations to Ronan O'Shea '15!  Ronan received the President’s Volunteer Service Award at a ceremony held on April 3, 2014. The Award is signed by President Obama and was presented to Ronan by the Director of the Veterans Affairs Maryland Health Care System.

The Award acknowledges Ronan’s internship with the Department of Veterans Affairs research program during the Summer of 2013.Ronan was engaged in a research study involving the development and clinical testing of an impedance-controlled modular ankle robot (“anklebot”) invented by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The goal of the VA/MIT collaboration is to improve walking and balance functions in patients (veterans and family members) who have suffered a stroke.

The following link features the study – Ronan is visible in the opening segment, running the software that controls the robot.
