Portugal Day Parade

The parade begins at 11 a.m. at the Activity-Athletic Center and continues east on Jericho Turnpike, then south on Roslyn Road.

The End Of The Beginning…

Last Sunday, the 374 members of the class of 2018 received their diplomas during their commencement exercises at the LIU Post campus.

John Paul Lynch (pictured) was awarded the prestigious Chaminade Man of the Year Award for his dedication to the community – including his volunteering as a catechist for PREP, writing for Tarmac, playing on the basketball and volleyball teams, and assisting patients and staff at a local hospital. Read more about the awards won by members of the class of 2018 here.

Fresh Off The Presses…
