2019 Tournament registration is open!




To the online home for C.O.R.E. – Celebrate Our Religious Enthusiastically!
CORE is a group of lay-volunteers dedicated to supporting our priests, seminarians and consecrated religious. These are people who have answered a call to service.

Service to us.

The purpose of CORE is to say “thank you” and to support them in their vocations any way we can.  For this, we need your prayerful and financial help.
Thank you in advance!
