With two Prep on the Road gatherings coming up later this month, you don't need to agonize over how way leads to way as Robert Frost once did. Whether you choose to join us in Bayonne on January 21 or at Xavier High School in Manhattan on January 26, you can share in the Mass with Fr. Azzarto and fellow members of the Prep community, make new friends, and catch up with old ones!
Since 2008, Prep's Grand Gala has contributed more than $3.2 million to Prep's financial assistance program. This spring, we'll be celebrating the 10th Gala right here in Jersey City, returning to the Westin Jersey City Newport for the first time since 2013. We'll also offer a special 80th birthday salute to Fr. Jim Keenan, S.J., and welcome honorary co-chairs Seton Ahearn, P'01 and Fr. Bob Reiser, S.J. It promises to be the brightest night of the year, and now through February 1, you can get your tickets at our 2008 price of $144 per person!
When you get your 2017 calendar (we like to wait until January when they're half price!) be sure to mark the dates for Prep's annual series of alumni gatherings in Florida, February 21-23! We'll be making four stops, in Bonita Springs, Venice (Sarasota), Hallandale Beach (Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami), and West Palm Beach. The Hallandale Beach reception will also feature a special guest appearance by Prep Legend Ms. Ana Garcia.
Save the date for opening night of Prep Dramatics' winter play, Is He Dead?, a comedy originally written by Mark Twain in 1898 and revised by David Ives for its 2007 Broadway debut. Following the play in O'Keefe Commons (showtime is 8 p.m.), the annual Dramatics Homecoming will bring together Prep actors and stage crew, past and present!
In case you missed last Sunday's Christmas Concert, here's your chance to see Prep's student musicians in action, filling O'Keefe Commons with the sounds of Christmas!
