Messenger Staff Report.
Bishop Roger Foys blessed and dedicated, Oct. 4, the Bishop Brossart High School Mustang Athletic Complex (MAC). The complex is the realization of a $5.2 million project that includes an athletic stadium, a building with locker rooms, concessions, an athletic training room and offices and parking. The field features a synthetic turf that will allow the stadium to be used year round.
The MAC is Bishop Brossart High School’s outdoor athletic facility and will also provide the local community with more venue options for athletics and other events. The complex can be used for concerts, receptions, class reunions, retreats and other social and spiritual gatherings for the local community.
“All can say is it is about time. You’ve been working on this a long time,” said Bishop Foys at the dedication. “I know it was a dream and sometimes it was a nightmare but it has all came out well. That’s because of faith — faith in God, faith in each other, faith in our students and faith in the future.”
The dedication was held Friday afternoon during the school day. Father Gerald Reinersman, pastoral administrator, gave the invocation. Daniel Ridder, principal, and Michael Clines, superintendent of Catholic Schools, addressed the crowd. All of the BBHS students attended giving Bishop Foys an opportunity to speak directly to the students.
“Remember that all of this is for you,” he told the students. “In choosing Bishop Brossart High School your parents have chosen one of the 9 Catholic high schools in our school system. These facilities will enhance your education and will also enhance in its own way the transmission of the faith. What you see today is an act of faith and for that all of us need to thank God.”
