Traveling to Conshohocken normally would mean a road trip for Pope John Paul II High School, but the Royersford-based Catholic school traveled across Montgomery County for its Sept. 28 home game against Phoenixville High School.
The alumni of the “legacy” schools that over time consolidated and became Pope John Paul II in 2010, including St. Matthew, Archbishop Kennedy, Bishop Kenrick and Kennedy-Kenrick High Schools, were invited to the Conshohocken “A” Field where home games of the former schools had been played. The flags of all the legacy schools were displayed along with the PJP flag as old friends renewed acquaintances and swapped stories of their playing days.
PJP improved to 6-0 on the season with a come-from-behind touchdown in overtime to beat Phoenixville. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
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.
