One Love Foundation Workshops

March 23, 2019| Posted By: dwgadmin| Posted in Student Life

The One Love Foundation was founded in memory of University of Virginia student  Yeardly Love, who was the fatal victim of relationship abuse in 2010. The work of the Foundation is to spread the conversation about relationship abuse, which is reaching epidemic proportions especially among young people. Through educational workshops, like the one experienced by all Curley students on November 20, 2018, the Foundation hopes to raise awareness about the signs and consequences of relationship abuse, whether it be physical, emotional or sexual.

On Tuesday, November 13th, the Curley community was present in the Suehle Auditorium for a Morning Prayer remembering the deceased of our families.

The names were also projected on the screen for all to see. Senior Connor Chaikowsky played his violin meditatively while the community prayed in silence. When all the names were…

A Reflection by Patrick McDonald ’20 For photos, click HERE to go to Curley’s Facebook page.

This is an event held at the University of Maryland, College Park and includes schools and parishes from across Maryland and even from Boston.

As for my experience, I can truly say that my outlook was changed almost immediately. On…

Curley Community Celebrates Ash Wednesday

March 23, 2019| Posted By: dwgadmin| Posted in Student Life

“Repent and Believe the Good News.” February 14th is for Christians the beginning of Lent, which is marked by the reception of ashes on the forehead to proclaim that we are sinners in need of God’s grace. Bishop Denis Madden, Urban Vicar for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, was the principal celebrant and homilist. In his homily, Bishop Madden encouraged all to use the opportunity that Lent provides to do the traditional works of Lent: prayer, fasting and alms…giving. He went further to suggest that as we perform these works, we go beyond our comfort zones, and discover our true selves. The Curley…

March 23, 2019| Posted By: dwgadmin| Posted in Student Life

On Thursday of Catholic Schools Week, the Curley community assembled for Morning Prayer in the Suehle Auditorium. This Morning Prayer, however, was a little different. The Cardinal Shehan School Choir joined us to celebrate Catholic Schools Week and they started by singing “Rise Up,” a song they performed on “Good Morning America” that went viral. Ryan Waskiewicz then offered prayers for students, teachers, administrators and parents of Catholic Schools. The Choir then performed “Blessings in the Air” and got the student body clapping and cha-cha-ing in their places. Fr. Donald concluded the Morning Prayer with a word of thanks and a…

Senior Service Week

Senior Service Week

March 23, 2019| Posted By: dwgadmin| Posted in Student Life

Archbishop Curley High School’s requirement for service is based on the example of St. Francis of Assisi who understood the need to integrate religious belief with everyday living. For St. Francis, serving the poor was nothing less than honoring God in the presence of another person. The MISSION 4 SERVICE program is an opportunity for our students to reach out to others who find themselves in need. While the learning that happens in the classroom is import…ant, we strongly believe in extending that learning experience beyond our school’s walls. All students have a service requirement. Seniors choose a service site and…
