On February 13, 2017, members of the Lancaster Catholic community gathered on a blustery day for the official Rossmere Stadium groundbreaking ceremony.
"Thanks to your generosity over a very short period of time, we raised the necessary $4.5 million in less than 10 months to build this stadium for generations of Crusaders to come." ~ Tim Hamer, LCHS President
"We ask God's blessing on the project. We've experienced the win this morning. In the Bible, the wind is a symbol of the spirit, and just as the wind is powerful and forceful this morning, the spirit here is powerful and forceful. The spirit of the school, the students and the faculty is so strong and powerful." ~ Bishop Ronald Gainer
"On a personal note, my son Ben was able to compete on this field as a football player and a track star. I have a lot of great memories on this field, so it's exciting to circle back and be a part of it. I'm also excited for the next generation of student-athletes and how they will excel with the facility that we are about to construct." ~Dale Shenk, Warfel Construction
