Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp Provides a Spiritual Boost

Can you take another “feel good” sports story today? I hope so!

Please take a few moments and watch this Catholic News Service video on the wonderful partnership between the Pittsburgh Steelers football organization and St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. In the piece, you’ll hear two priests speak to the role that the campus and it’s spiritual environment plays in welcoming the team each year for annual training camp. It’s also great to hear one of the coaches, himself a former player, speak to the motivation and peace provided by attending morning prayer each day of camp.

Watch and share!

A question for you: Are you ready for some football?

    I hate the Steelers! Now how can I hate them after that? 😉

    We lived for 11 years in and around Pittsburgh while my wife worked at St. Vincent. The annual ritual made it clear what the real religion of the region is. (The cathedral is known as Heinz Field.)
