The Legacy Project - Part I - Our Mission

Part I of a series of videos focusing on Cardinal Gibbons athletics' mission, program culture, and legacy-building initiatives. What will be your legacy? For it to be an enduring one, it should not, and cannot be a legacy focused solely on winning or personal triumph. Our program is about more than winning championships. It’s about love...it’s about how well we’ve used the talents and gifts that we have been blessed to receive. It’s our mission.

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.
