St. John Berchmans Hosts 12th Annual Religion Scholars Bowl
St. John Berchmans Catholic School hosted the 12th annual Religion Scholars Bowl during Catholic Schools Week this year. The competition, began by former principal Mrs. Jo Cazes, traditionally allows Catholic students from around the diocese and the state of Louisiana to compete against grade level teams, testing their knowledge of religious teachings and our Catholic faith. In the past, Religion Scholars Bowl has brought together students and scholars from St. Joseph School, St. Mary School in Natchitoches, Our Lady of Fatima, Jesus the Good Shepherd, and St. Frederick High School as they shared their knowledge with love and fellowship. This year SJB held the Religion Scholars Bowl, but on a smaller family level with St. John Berchmans students participating and competing grade against grade. Our fifth grade team wowed the school and our special guests, judges Sr Carol Shively and Sr Ann Middlebrooks. With a perfect score, sixth grade placed second, and eighth grade took third. Congratulations to all SJB participants and to our religion teachers who pass along our cherished Catholic faith!
