The Play's the Thing


The Louverture Cleary Drama Club, under direction from Second-Year Volunteer, Kristin Soukup, presented an original Kreyòl rendition of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost for the community on Friday.

Principal Marjorie Mombrun (LCS '07, pictured left) made a cameo appearance to deliver a moral on the importance of education.

Last week closed with shouts of uproarious laughter, suspense and a moral on the enduring value of education in Louverture Cleary's second performance of Love's Labour's Lost.

Former Volunteer Emily Marquet ('11-'13) debuted the play in the early years of the LCS drama program. This fall, the students felt it was time to undertake the Bard's classic once again. Led by second-year Volunteer Kristin Soukup, the students were largely responsible for the stage management and direction. It was very well-received.

Community Update: Beton and Basketball

Students, staff and Volunteers rallied around the concrete [beton] mixer once again this week to help our local boss mason, Pasteur Meus, and the LCS maintenance team to resurface the front basketball court. The court, fondly known as "The Moon" in recent years due to its many craters, was due for the facelift-- and just in time for basketball season. 

Nick Junior Joseph (Philo/U.S. 13th grade student) reported on the team's prospects under Volunteer Coach Haluga in the fall edition of the Louverture Cleary student newspaper:
The good news for this year's team is that they held onto their base. We are of course speaking of [students] Wallin, Maed, Sebastien, Kolson and Ernst. Volunteer Coach Haluga, former captain of her own high school team, is ready to lead the team to victory and was pleased to see many students try out. Her objectives for this year are clear: to prepare the team for a win against [LCS rival] St. Louis Gonzague. The team is ready to give their all.

Happy Anniversary, Deacon Moynihan!

Today is the thirteenth anniversary of Deacon Patrick Moynihan's ordination to the permanent diaconate. Deacon Moynihan's servant ministry to the Church has long been bound up in service to The Haitian Project, its charism and its community.
