DECEMBER 12-15, 2019


In 1991, our community suffered the tragic loss of three young lives.  One of the youths, Kate Conlon, was a graduate of St. Raymond School and her family were longtime parishioners.  Kate was a talented athlete who participated in basketball, volleyball, cheerleading and intramural sports.  A group of Kate’s friends and neighbors wanted to do something to remember her love of athletics, and thus the Annual Kate Conlon Christmas Tournament was created.  In 2018, its 27th year, the Kate Conlon Tournament hosted 22, 8th grade girls teams over four days.
