Passing the Torch: Ascension Thursday Mass

Submitted by mjiran on Wed, 05/16/2018 - 3:15pm

As the Prep community gathered in the courtyard for Ascension Thursday Mass – minus the senior class, who now await their final grades and graduation – the timing could not have been more appropriate. After all, as Fr. Bob O'Hare, S.J., pointed out, the day commemorates a similar transition of leadership in the early Church, from Jesus himself to his disciples, who are left to continue his mission on earth.

Renovations Begin in Mulry Hall

Classes concluded last Friday, May 11, as part of a condensed schedule to allow maximum time for a complete interior renovation of the 105-year-old Mulry Hall. Making full use of the opportunity, crews descended upon the building almost immediately to commence the project. View the pre-renovation photos, and the early stages of the renovation, in our photo gallery!

Spirit Awards for Four Juniors

Following the Ascension Thursday Mass, four Prep Spirit Awards were presented to members of the Class of 2019. These year-end Spirit Awards for juniors have a special significance, as they not only celebrate some of the "unsung heroes" of the Prep community, but are also a sign of a new class of leaders taking a greater role in Prep life. These first four Class of '19 recipients will help to select fellow honorees during the 2018-19 school year.
