    Tony Knopp Memorial Invitational May 16

                St. Mary’s School will host its 14th annual golf tournament, the Tony Knopp Memorial Invitational, at Lady Bird Johnson Golf Course Saturday May 16. A.J. Loth (pictured left), longtime coach at St. Mary’s High School with the late Tony Knopp, will be on hand to greet the golfers at this year’s event.

                Knopp, who died in 2014, left a legacy at both St. Mary’s School and Fredericksburg High School, having coached and taught at both institutions for over 40 years. Knopp is also remembered as managing the City of Fredericksburg swimming pools beginning in the 1950’s.

                Loth is also a legend at both St. Mary’s High School and Fredericksburg High School. The two coached at both schools and created a winning combination at both schools.

                Knopp began teaching and coaching at then St. Mary’s High School in the early 1950’s. Knopp coached both football and baseball and the football team earned three state titles during his tenure. In 1972, Knopp helped coach football at Fredericksburg High School and resurrected the Billie baseball team. He retired in 1991.

    Join Us for a Cup of Coffee

    The welcoming committee at St. Mary’s invites you to join other parishioners for a cup of coffee between 10 and 11 a.m. each Sunday over the next few months. If you would like to bring along a Catholic-based book to share with friends, that would be great as well. We will begin next weekend. Usually the coffee will be served in the Holy Family Center but listen for announcements prior to Mass as to the location. We hope you will share this hour with us to help welcome the newer members of the parish and also to reaquaint yourselves with some of your long-time friends.
