As the 2013 school year began, Bishop Kevin J. Farrell made a surprise visit to two Irving schools: Holy Family of Nazareth and St. Luke.
With a backdrop of architectural renderings on easels and with St. Mary of Carmel Catholic School kindergarteners singing “I’ve Got Joy Down in My Heart,” developers and community volunteers announced plans Oct. 3 for Los Arboles de Santa María, a mixed-use development centered around the West Dallas school.
Whoops, hollers, and cheers echoed across campus as students, faculty and families gathered inside Christ the King’s Community Center. While the annual homecoming game pep rally always draws quite a crowd, this year’s celebration on Sept. 26 focused on something bigger – Athletic Director and Coach Michael Higgs. His dedication to Christ the King Catholic School has lasted a quarter of a century.
