Oye, oye, OYYA

The Philadelphia Archdiocese's Office of Youth and Young Adults and Our Lady of Fatima in Bensalem sponsored a soccer tournament July 25. Parish teams from St. John Bosco, Visitation B.V.M., St. Veronica, Divine Mercy, Our Lady of Fatima and Annunciation B.V.M. all participated. One of the three Fatima teams was the victor. Read a full account of the tournament in English in the Aug. 6 issue of the Catholic Standard & Times, and the Spanish-language version of the article in the Aug. 20 issue.

Kudos to María Reyes of OYYA and the folks at Our Lady of Fatima for a well-attended, first-time event, and to Catholic Standard & Times photographer Sarah Webb for providing the great stills from which I put together the video.

By the way, the music is by Colombian group, Bomba Estéreo, who released their U.S. debut album in June.


  1.'re becoming quite the sportswriter! Are you applying for an analyst position for ESPN next? :) Great to see this tournament getting covering!

  2. Awesome! Bravo to team Fatima!
