Join us Tuesday, February 3, at John's Pizza on Sussex Street for the return of the Alumni Spirituality Committee's Theology on Tap series! Our special guest will be Mike Gomez, '91, a former Prep English teacher and baseball coach, former principal of Saint Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia, and now the principal of Cristo Rey School in Philadelphia. We'll be discussing "The Gospels of Springsteen, 144 Grand and Luke: From Growing Up to the Promised Land."
Wednesday marked the sunset of an era at Grand & Warren, as the English department's resident Prep Legend, Dr. Rich Kennedy, taught the final class period in a career that has spanned 48 years over six decades. After teaching a part-time schedule since 2012, "Doc" is set to embark upon a well-deserved retirement.
This week, Prep is participating in No Name-Calling Week, a national event that seeks to celebrate kindness and promote respect for all, by challenging the labels that make it too easy to insult, dismiss, and even dehumanize members of our communities.
Parents, come and experience Ignatian Spirituality for a weekend with some of Prep’s Adult Ministry Team! Take a break from the challenges of parenting, work, and daily life, as you take the time to learn how to look for God in all that you do. It’s your opportunity to experience some of Emmaus and Kairos for yourself!
Thursday marked an early milestone in the journey of Prep's Class of 2019, as decision letters were mailed to some 600 applicants, who hope to take the next step toward Grand & Warren. Click through to learn more about the applicant pool!
