Sports as a Ministry

Cardinal Gibbons provides meaningful participation opportunities for all students, with offerings ranging from recreational intramurals to championship-caliber competition for college-bound athletes. At all levels, we strive to make athletics a formational experience for students and parents. Our program is about more than winning championships. Our success is measured by how well our programs further the mission of our school and how we choose to use the talents and gifts that we have been blessed to receive.
