It's almost time again for what is now an annual tradition—the 'Souls and Goals' soccer match in St. Louis, where the seminary soccer team will play against a team of 'clergy and company'; last year's match was a close game until late in the second half, when the Kenrick-Glennon Seminary Lions took a 2-0 lead and with it, the cup.
The game will be held at St. Dominic High School on Thursday, November 6, with Evening Prayer at 6 p.m. and the game starting at 7 p.m. The game is free to anyone, and concessions will be available. For more info, check out Souls and Goals.org.
I'll be playing in goal again this year (as part of the 'and Company' on the Clergy side), wearing my Vatican-yellow jersey! Someday those priests will get a new goalie... but until that time I'm happy to get a little extra exercise and block some shots!
