    Catholic Athletes for Christ (CAC) President Founder Ray McKenna addressed the John Carroll Society‘s Younger Members reception on September 19 in Arlington, Va.  His presentation was titled, “Winning with Christ: Putting Jesus at the Center of Sports and Life”.  The John Carroll Society is an organization of Catholic professionals united in their desire for an ever deepening and enriching knowledge of their Faith and in service to the Archbishop of Washington.

    McKenna spoke on the founding of CAC and the importance of maintaining Jesus at the center of all we do in sports and in life. He specifically encouraged all Catholics to: (1) stay strongly rooted in prayer; 2) attend Mass often and receive the Sacraments frequently; 3) read Holy Scripture and spiritual books; and 4) maintain a strong Marian devotion including praying the Rosary daily.

    For the last four years, CAC has hosted the John Carroll Society at a Washington Nationals baseball game.  This year, Nationals relief pitcher Ryan Madson and Nationals Vice President and Assistant General Manager for Finance Ted Towne shared stories and recounted the importance of their Catholic faith in their lives.
