A note from the Director fo Alumni at SFDH! We need your help. We are trying to implement an alumni support system which begins with the implementation of Class Ambassadors for all graduating classes of SFDH! We are searching for those people willing to help. ROLE: Class Ambassadors will help strengthen alumni connections by meaningfully engaging classmates with one another and with the St. Francis DeSales High School community. Ambassador roles will include class communication via email and social media, seeking classmates to organize events, and encouraging and supporting the St. Francis DeSales agenda of faith, family, and tradition. The Alumni Director and the Alumni Board and Council will be your point of contact for seeking contact information, strategy, and planning. We will support you in your efforts to help drive activity and engagement. Our goal is to have 100% of our classes represented in the very near future! Please consider offering your time and service. Comment below if you would be willing to do so for your class! Thank you so much and have a great week!

Woman dies after wrong-way crash on I-670

By Theodore Decker
The Columbus Dispatch • Wednesday February 11, 2015 3:00 PM
Comments: 0 0 0 66
The elderly woman who was killed after driving the wrong way on I-670 last night had dementia and was being sought by Gahanna police when the crash occurred.

Virginia White, 80, had been deemed a “high-risk missing person” by police in Gahanna earlier in the evening, but officers had not been able to locate her. The description of White’s 2004 Buick Regal also had been displayed on some of the Ohio Department of Transportation sign boards before the crash occurred.

“Gahanna had been looking for her since I believe about 5 o’clock,” said Sgt. Brooke Wilson, supervisor of the Columbus police Accident-Investigation Unit.

He said detectives have not yet determined where White got on the freeway and how long she had been driving in the wrong direction.

White died at 1:42 a.m. today at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, where she was taken following the 8:24 p.m. crash in the westbound lanes of I-670 at I-71.

Police said White was driving east in the westbound lanes when she collided with a Ford Taurus driven west by Hannah Miller, 21. The impact sent Miller’s car spinning into a westbound Kia minivan driven by Christopher Harden, 48.

Miller also was taken to Grant, where she remains in critical condition.

Harden and his two passengers, Anna Harden, 12, and Sidney Tackett, 13, were not injured.

The crash remains under investigation.

[01/20/15]   Please keep in your prayers the family of Joseph Ciminello who has recently passed into Gods loving arms. Obit in Columbus dispatch. His children were graduates of St. Francis DeSales H.S.

[01/01/15]   To each and everyone Happy New Year! God bless you and your families in 2015! Buon Anno!

[12/07/14]   December 7th. Let us not forget Pearl Harbor. God bless all of our soldiers.

[12/06/14]   Happy holidays to everyone! Don't forget to donate to the church you attend and also to Desales High School ( if you can)...give accordingly to the holiday spirit!

[11/20/14]   Please remember in your prayers the family of Costa Andronis, who passed away today. His family owns Golden Donuts and diner who, in the passed, donated donuts to the school for teacher appreciation day. Rest in peace faithful servant. God bless you and your family Eleni and Costa.

On Saturday, a pair of St. Francis DeSales Athletic programs continued their success in 2014. The Boys Soccer team defeated previously unbeaten Dover 4-2 to win a Division-II Regional championship. The program, led by Domenic Romanelli '83, won its 14th Regional title, which ranks them second all-time in Ohio history for most State Tournament appearances.

The Girls Volleyball team won a Division-I Regional championship by defeating Dublin Coffman in straight games, 3-0. The win marks the seventh State Tournament berth for DeSales, who captured their third straight Regional title.

The Stallion Football team has qualified for the 2014 OHSAA State Playoffs and will open-up postseason play at Dover on Friday. DeSales (8-2) will face Dover for just the second time in school history, with the last meeting occurring 14 years ago today, as the Stallions rallied from an early deficit to defeat the Tornadoes 30-10 in a Division-II Regional Quarterfinal at Alumni Stadium. All-time, DeSales is 48-19 in the postseason and will make its 23rd OHSAA playoff appearance on Friday.

Follow the example of Saint Bernard and repeat those well-known words of his: "What is your mission in this life? What does God want from you?" Then abandon yourself totally to His Divine Will. Let Him carry out His plan in you. Let Him dispose of you as He wishes without any reserve whatever! Have a sincere devotion to the holy virgin and to your guardian angel. Finally, remind yourself that, as a superior, you need more humility to command than to obey! Be careful not to be too meticulous in all that you have to do. Only have the right intention to act for the love of God and for His honor and glory! Keep strictly to this resolution; never desire to do anything that is not for God or which could be viewed with displeasure by Him. (Letters 40; O. XXVI, p. 344)

In the presence of our queen assumed into Heaven, we profoundly vow our heart that she may flood it with the "dew of Hermon," distilled from the holy fullness of grace. How sublime is the perfection of this love in comparison to all of us! Oh, how I have desired that amid the immensity of our miseries she will find and bring the olive branch of holy love. In purity, in gentleness and in prayer, may she carry it as a sign of peace to our dear Jesus! Long live Jesus, long live Mary! (Letters 1230; O. XVII, p. 271)
