The Physical Education department is represented by St. Sebastian. St. Sebastian was the son of a wealthy Roman family and was born in Narbonne, Gaul. He was educated in Milan and became a soldier in Rome, and a captain of the guard. He converted other soldiers and a governor, and boosted the spirits of two Christian captives who were awaiting their own martyrdom, in the time that he served as a soldier. Eventually, the Emperor came to hear of Saint Sebastian’s faith in Jesus and ordered him to be tied to as post and slain by arrows. Saint Sebastian was left for dead, his body horribly pierced and bleeding, but by virtue of his physical stamina and God’s will, he did not die. Saint Sebastian is the patron saint of all athletes, soldiers and police because of his physical endurance and his energetic way of spreading and defending the Faith. All kinds of people look to St. Sebastian in hopes of attaining like strength and endurance. His feast day is January 20th.
