As part of Catholic Schools Week, Holy Rosary Regional Catholic School in Plymouth Meeting honored two Plymouth Township police officers and Plymouth Township Fire Marshall Andy Mount on Jan. 28, 2019, commending them for their contributions to safety and civic education.
The three honorees were surprised by an assembly of students as part of Community Day of Catholic Schools Week, which ran from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2. The “Community Safety Assembly of Gratitude” celebration featured performances of the national anthem as well as “God Bless America,” “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless the U.S.A.” Several students shared their essays on what they think about police officers and firefighters.
In particular, the event lauded Officers Mark Lacy and David Phillips along with Fire Marshall Mount for their diligent efforts to keep Holy Rosary compliant with safety requirements. The officials have provided the school with inspections and have instructed students on safety education, drills, and procedures in the event of a emergency.
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.
