The 2021-2022 Great Read Tip-Off Awakens with “Canyon Dreams”

Our Crusaders were introduced to our exciting 2021-2022 Great Read in their religion classes today...

"Good Morning… today is the introduction and ‘tip-off’ to this year's Great Read, Canyon Dreams. Canyon Dreams tells the moving story of a Navajo high school basketball team, its members struggling with the everyday challenges of high school, adolescence, and family, and the great and unique obstacles facing Native Americans living on reservations.

Today in your religion classes, you will be introduced to our Great Read and receive your book and reading schedule.  You will also be introduced to the Brothers of the Sacred Heart Mission in Klagetoh, AZ, St. Anne’s Mission,  which is located on the Navajo reservation.  Over the next several weeks as we read our Great Read, we will learn more and make real-life connections with our mission in Klagetoh.  Every Friday, our morning prayer will focus on a faculty or staff member's experience during their time spent on the mission.  We hope you enjoy our Great Read, Canyon Dreams."

-Mr. Gerald Ursin III '07 in his introduction of Canyon Dreams.

Today, our Crusaders were introduced to our exciting 2022 Great Read, Michael Powell's "Canyon Dreams," in their religion classes. Crusaders will draw connections between this book and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart mission in Klagetoh, Arizona. Over the next five Fridays, our Crusaders will also tie in their coursework to this year's Great Read in classes across the curriculum.
