Take Action Against Christian Persecution

Take Action Against Christian Persecution

Maddie Marcucci '19, Faith Editor

Persecuted Christians often feel alone and afraid because of the terror they experience and the lack of believers in their country to lean on for support. However, here are some actions that you can take to provide encouragement and light for those in despair: You can take a few moments to write a letter to children who were victims of a church bombing in Indonesia in 2016. Children were playing in a park outside the church while their parents were in a church service when the park got bombed. Alvaro, Trinity, and Anita are in need of our encouragement.  Be sure to also look up helpful p...

Montrose Fall Sports Banquet: Filled with Rousing Cheers For All

Sophie Kocho '20, Staff Writer

M O N T R O S E. Picture it spelled out in enormous silvery, shiny balloons across the A&A stage. This was the spectacular sight that Montrosians encountered upon entering the A&A for the Fall 2017 Sports Banquet. Our wonderful new Athletic Director, Julie Ruggieri, opened the ceremonies with a lovely speech commemorating the fall sports teams. Ms. Ruggieri applauded the determination, passion, and integrity that all the teams exemplified this season.

Open Letter to Montrosians: Making Connections — Key to Human Dignity

'What could be better than dying?’ I thought, concerned with what she was planning to reveal next. She continued, explaining that her mom went into a coma for 11 years due to too much anesthesia before a C-section to deliver Melinda's 15th sibling.

Fall Holidays: From Encountering the Dark in Halloween to Raising the Light of Gratitude in Thanksgiving

Fall Holidays: From Encountering the Dark in Halloween to Raising the Light of Gratitude in Thanksgiving

Grace Alyea '18, Contributing Writer

Halloween and Thanksgiving are the biggest holidays of the fall season. Halloween always comes with the re-showing of iconic horror movies and the opportunity to become something or someone else for the night. Thanksgiving causes arts and craft stores to explode with make-your-own cornucopias, and comes with its own parade.

All Hallows Eve merged with the Celtic holiday Samhain; the church renamed this holida...

The Secret History of Coffee

The Secret History of Coffee

Gabby Landry '18, Co-Editor-in-Chief

Coffee’s strength and tanginess pair well with its propensity to bring people together in meaningful conversations shared “over coffee.”  When we partake in this social ritual, we become part of a story that traces its roots from Asia to America.  I had the chance to learn about more at a “College Tea” at Yale University on November 15th.  During College Teas, distinguished visitors come and speak to students about their fields of work and research in a relaxed setting.  At this Tea, Yale’s Branford College welcomed journalist Abdul-Rehman Malik to share the “Secret History of ...
