Saint Theresa Catholic School is proud to announce that two of our Eighth-Grade students have placed in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston 2020 Middle School Poetry Fest. Lance Alonte and Patrick Krall will compete against fellow students from across the Archdiocese on April 21, 2020 at St. Francis de Sales Catholic School. The topic for this year’s anthology was the Beatitudes. Participants chose an aspect of the Beatitudes, writing in Western or Eastern form. Lance and Patrick will have the opportunity to read their winning poetry submissions, and the rankings of the winners will be revealed at this celebration. From these rankings, a student poet-laureate will be announced. The judges for the Poetry Fest on April 21st are local, award-winning poets.
Patrick Krall’s entry, “Via Christi,” is a first-person poem in which the speaker encounters St. John the Baptist.
Lance Alonte wrote “Fiat Voluntas Tua.” He recounts Our Blessed Mother’s role in guiding him to discover and fulfill God’s Will.
