The Spring 2014 issue of Prep Magazine is now available for online viewing at spprep.org/PrepMag . Discover the diverse communities that send students to Prep each day, and celebrate 20 years of the McGovern Tournament. Please note that the inclusion of Angelo Scianni, '10 in the "Vita Mutatur Non Tollitur" listing is incorrect. The Angelo Scianni of Bayonne who passed away last fall is actually the grandfather of Angelo, '10 and Ralph, '13.
In your prayers, please remember the soul of Fr. Edward "Ned" Coughlin, S.J., who passed away recently at the age of 69 following a brief illness. Fr. Coughlin's nearly-52-year ministry as a Jesuit brought him to Grand & Warren three different times: 1969-71, 1975-81 and 1982-84. During that second stint, he left perhaps his greatest mark on Saint Peter's Prep as he developed the Emmaus retreat program, leading Emmaus I in the fall of 1977.
