    The mission of Roncalli High School is to educate in the Catholic traditions of spiritual growth, life-long service, and academic excellence.

    Manitowoc, Wisconsin

  • Our school was named after Angelo Giuseppe

    Roncalli in 1965, shortly after his death in 1963. Roncalli,

    in his time called Good Pope John, is remembered most

    for convening the Second Vatican Council, from 1962

    1965. The world was in a time of war, specifically the

    cold war between the U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A. The

    Vatican felt that the world needed a pope that would

    keep quiet and wouldnt cause much trouble, but

    Roncalli drastically changed the Church in his time as

    pope. His hope was that the Second Vatican Council

    would be the beginning of a new Pentecost for the


    The Catholic Church became more involved in the

    political and justice issues of the world. The celebration

    of mass was drastically changed, from a priest speaking

    Latin with his back to the congregation to a priest

    speaking the common language of the people while

    facing his congregation.

    The Catholic Church became much more united

    with itself and other faiths of the world. Pope John

    XXIII helped change what was a traditional Church into

    a modern and involved Church. His work in Catholicism

    and his love of youth in the world is what led the people

    who established Roncalli High School to name our

    school after him.

    St. John XXIII

    The Life of the Good Pope Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations but about your unfulfilled

    potential. Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.

  • Roncalli High School celebrated Pope John XXIIIs canonization

    with a bit of fun and a bit of prayer. Throughout the week, religion

    classes were based on learning about Roncallis life. On the Friday

    before the canonization, there was a prayer service and a presentation

    for Pope John XXIII. Lunch was Italian with chicken parmesan as

    the main course and Italian ice as a treat for the students and faculty.

    On the Saturday before the canonization, Roncalli held the

    annual Pierside Auction and dedicated it to St. John XXIII. Roncalli

    High School continues to honor St. John XXIII at the end of every

    prayer by saying the words that will forever be etched in our minds

    and our hearts: St. John Baptist de LaSalle, pray for us. St. Francis,

    pray for us. St. John XXIII, pray for us.

    All students received a special St. John XXIII

    medal to celebrate his canonization.

  • This years season didnt happen over night. It was years in the making.

    By Ben and Lizzie Wichlacz

  • CoaCh Ruxs notes:

    There are never enough words to describe the

    excitement that a state tournament appearance

    brings to the team and community. Every team that

    makes it to Madison needs to overcome some type of

    adversity, and this team was no exception. We lost

    two key players in Sam Scheer and Alex Deets prior to

    the season with football injuries which changed the

    entire team dynamic. When you consider how many

    players had to change positions and roles in a short

    period of time, it makes you appreciate the resilience

    this group displayed. To end your season in the Kohl

    Center is an accomplishment few teams get to


    Our team motto this year was, It's not about

    you. The players understood that to achieve great

    things and overcome the adversity we experienced,

    we were going to need to have a team-first attitude.

    That attitude was solely responsible for the success

    this team experienced.

    Thanks to all the coaches and players for their years of hard work and dedication!

    I am not an active person except for dancing, soccer and shopping. My favorite time of a day is lunch time, and I become so happy when my mom tells me its time for dinner. Roncalli is the place I found everything I wanted, which is close friends, great family, and new experiences.
