General Announcements 

Fred Fath, St. Christopher coach for 54 years, to be honored on Aug. 6

Fred Fath, a longtime parishioner and coach at St. Christopher Parish and School in Indianapolis, will be honored posthumously at the parish’s 5:30 p.m. Mass on Aug. 6, and during a dedication ceremony afterward in the school gym.

In recognition of his 54 years of coaching grade school sports at St. Christopher, the basketball court in the parish gym will be named “Fred Fath Court.” His love of basketball inspired many young boys and girls, and came full circle when he coached children of his former players.

Fath died peacefully at home on June 17 after a brief illness. Aug. 6 would have marked his 86th birthday.

A brief presentation will be given at the conclusion of the 5:30 p.m. Mass, and will conclude with a dedication ceremony in the gym. Light refreshments will be served.

All are invited to attend this special event, especially former players.

What Would Pope Francis Do? Author to discuss new book on Aug. 14 at St. Athanasius Church

Author Sean Salai, S.J., will offer a luncheon presentation on his book, What Would Pope Francis Do?, as well as host a book signing, in Dormition Hall at St. Athanasius the Great Byzantine Catholic Church, 1117 Blaine Ave., in Indianapolis, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. on Aug. 14.

What Would Pope Francis Do? is filled with stories of ordinary people as well as saints who have followed the call of Jesus—and Pope Francis—to go to the peripheries with the joy of the Gospel. The book, written by Salai, who is in formation with the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) and will be ordained a transitional deacon this fall and to the priesthood next summer, asks readers to ponder what they have done, are doing for Christ and will do for Christ.

Books will be available for $15. The luncheon and presentation are free, although a freewill offering is appreciated.

For more information, call 317-632-4157.
