In Memoriam

 

 

We try our best to recognize the passing of all of our graduates and friends. When an alumnus dies, the Alumni & Communications Director sends a special letter to each of his classmates to share the news.

As it is very difficult to track the passing of those living outside of Central Ohio, we kindly ask for the help of families and friends s to keep us informed. Please help us by sending notifications to Louis J. Fabro '83, Director of Alumni Affairs & Communications, by e-mail ([email protected]) or voicemail (380-209-2233).

 

 Alma Mater - Verse #3                                              Patronal Hymn- Verse #3    

When student days are o’er                                          O Saint Charles, true guide to heaven,

And classes meet no more.                                           Unto death our patron be.

When life has called the score:                                    When the clouds grow dark at even’

Prosper or fail;   Still in the twilight gray,                 And God’s way we fail to see,

As ages pass away, Lift we our hearts to say;            Lift the weak, inspire the weary,

Saint Charles, hail!                                                Bring us home to Christ with thee.                                           

                                                     

 

Requiescat in Pace
