New gym at La Salle High School blessed and dedicated

UNION GAP, Wash. -- A brand new gym at La Salle High School is now the Cardinal Francis George Gym. There was a dedication and blessing Wednesday afternoon. Cardinal George played a big role in bringing the high school and the De La Salle Christian Brothers to the Valley.

The gym isn't yet finished but was blessed with holy water. Hundreds of people attended.

"We haven't had a gym, and for us to compete to bring students to come to this very special place, we have to have the facilities that kids want to be a part of," Tim McGree, La Salle High's president, said.

Cardinal George was unable to attend because he is ill, but he plans to visit La Salle High and the gym dedicated to him very soon.
