It was an “interesting revelation,” for the 19-year-old politics major at The Catholic University of America, but soon with support from resident ministers (students spiritual advisors in the dorms), seminarians from his Latin class and Capuchin friars, he found his way to the RCIA class on campus and began studying about the Catholic faith.

    All the students at St. Elizabeth Catholic School in Rockville sat cross-legged on the gym floor and stayed completely still waiting for the middle school science teacher and Golden Apple Award winner Elizabeth Orlandi to appear. Then the room erupted with cheers and music as she walked in with principal Vincent Spadoni, through an archway of enthusiastic eighth graders, past golden balloons, and a cake decorated with a golden apple. She continued to the podium where she was congratulated by officials from the school and the archdiocese, and by her husband and, via video-chat, by her waving children.
