Coach Porianda enjoys a moment with the boys he coached and wishes them luck in the playoffs.
Our beloved science teacher and assistant football coach Steve Porianda passed from this life on Thursday, Jan. 10. Coach Porianda worked at NDP from 2004 to 2017. He was a mentor and inspiration to his students and colleagues. His impact on the field and in the classroom was profound and lasting. In his final months, he was able to watch his beloved Saints compete in the AIA state playoffs. The seniors in the class of 2019 were the final class of players coached by Porianda.
It is with great faith that we believe Coach Porianda will rise with Christ and hear those precious words "Well done, my good and faithful servant."
Memorial mass for Coach Porianda will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at St. Jerome Catholic Church, 10815 N. 35th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ.
