After an impressive dual-meet season with a 4-0 record, the team looks to continue their undefeated status.

Get Colorized

This past Thursday night, a large portion of the junior class attended “Get Colorized,” an evening of spiritual recollection and Eucharistic adoration. The night commenced with Build-Your-Own-Burgers followed by talks from Mr. Peter Carriero ‘96 and Bro. Ryszard Decowski, S.M. ‘77. The theme of the night was learning how to deal effectively with change and unexpected events in one’s life, an important lesson as juniors begin the college application process.

Senior Blood Drive

Last Friday, the Class of 2019 had the fulfilling opportunity to donate blood with the help of the New York Blood Center. Their contributions were impressive, totaling 82 pints of blood, essential to satisfying the growing demand for blood in the tri-state area. Read more about the event here.
