Friday Night Lights - Honoring Brendan Moyna

(l to r) Kevin, Kealy '14, Katheen '88, Kacey '19, Brendan  and Kristian '16

“A good tree, that is, a good heart as well as a soul
on fire with charity can do nothing
but good and holy works.” - St. Angela Merici

Friday, October 15, 2021 - 6:30 - 9:30 pm

at the home of Chris and Rick Trizano P'11'17




Everyone and everything that Brendan Moyna touched was made so much better, and The Ursuline School community was no exception. A person of deep faith and boundless energy, Brendan’s motto was “we got this.” His spirit was infectious! Brendan inspired hundreds of Ursuline student-athletes through his volunteer coaching of the Lacrosse teams. He was instrumental in building up the Lacrosse program, but more importantly, Brendan built up the young women in his care. Any former player will tell you that anyone who experiences a mentor like Brendan Moyna is truly blessed. The proud husband of an alumna and the devoted father of three alumnae, Brendan was “all in” for Ursuline and left a spectacular legacy at the school, upon which we are proud to build.

The Ursuline School community will honor the life of Brendan Moyna P '14 '16 '19 at a special fundraising event at the home of Christina and Rick Trizano P '11 '17 on Friday, October 15. In a nod to Brendan’s all-time favorite show, the event will be themed “Friday Night Lights.” The funds raised will support Ursuline’s Innovation Campaign - specifically, the fantastic new bookstore located near the entrance to the school that will bear his name. The Brendan J. Moyna Bookstore is already a hot spot for students and seems a fitting tribute to a man who regularly sported TUS gear! 

Please join us as we pay tribute to a very special man.
