Mater Dei Catholic School in Lansdale will host a pep rally on Friday, Feb. 12 to show support for more than 50 faculty members, parents and students who will participate in Sea Isle City’s Annual Polar Bear Plunge the following day.
Diane McCaughan, principal of Mater Dei, will lead the group as they plunge into the frigid Atlantic Ocean.
The pep rally will feature the Mater Dei pep squad, cheerleaders, guest acts, polar bear mascots and many of the plungers who are raising funds for the tuition assistance program of the school.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
