DBC Marks Presidents’ Day with “El Presidente Cup”

Chris Johnson No Comments

Monday, February 20, 2012 the Don Bosco Center held a Presidents’ Day soccer tournament. The tournament was held at the Don Bosco Center on the new turf field that was just completed this past fall.

There were six teams with six players each in the tournament. Jessica Morales, director of youth ministry at Sacred Heart Parish in Manassas, brought three players and the rest of the players were from the Don Bosco Center.

It was a great day filled with soccer, fun, and food. Ian Nelson was the expert hot dog cook and Fr. Ramon Dominguez, YA was our professional chicken nugget chef.

Tiffany Lambert and Jonathan Mundell helped referee and Jessica Morales was keeping track of the points for the bracket. We did a bracket in which each team played at least twice.

When teams were off the field they watched the game on the field or went in the Center to get some hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pasta, chips and salsa, cheese and crackers, salad, etc.

Teens play soccer at the DBC's turf field, February 2012.

The last two games were 3rd place vs. 4th place and then 1st place vs. 2nd place. The winning team (David, Jesus, Charlie, Adrian, Santos, and Carlos) took pictures with the “El Presidente Cup” trophy. Then each of the players on the winning team got a brand new soccer ball. All in all it was a great fun-filled day at the Don Bosco Center.

Father Ramon invokes the blessing at the DBC’s Ash Wednesday Mass.

On February 22, 2012 the Don Bosco Center (DBC) held an Ash Wednesday service. We had regular DBC at the start of the day. We helped students with homework from 3 – 4pm and then they played soccer from 4 – 5pm. At about 5:15pm the Ash Wednesday service started. There were between seventy and eighty people who attended. A number of families joined us. Some of the DBC participants and one of the volunteers helped serve and read. It was a great experience to be able to pray with the DBC participants and their families. The silence that fell in the room when Fr. Ramon processed up the aisle of chairs at the DBC was amazing. God was there.
