Father/Son Mass & Breakfast Goes into Recordbooks
The 2015 edition of the Father/Son Mass & Breakfast is in the books… the record books to be more specific!
Shattering previous attendance figures, more than 335 current students, alumni, prospective students, uncles, grandparents and fathers gathered at St. Charles to celebrate last Saturday (March 28th).View a link to the event’s photo album on the school’s Facebook page at:
Now in its eighth year, the event provides Carolian fathers, uncles, and grandfathers to celebrate their St. Charles experience and introduce young sons and grandsons to the school. This fraternal program also serves as a wonderful way for current students and their fathers to celebrate the great opportunity and camaraderie that St. Charles provides. And just as importantly, the Father/Son is also a warm way to welcome incoming freshmen into the St. Charles Family and gives interested 6th, 7th or 8th graders additional insight into what the school is all about.
The event began at 9:30 a.m. with Mass celebrated by Fr. Bill Arnold ’70 (pastor of Holy Spirit parish) in Mother of Mercy Chapel assisted by Deacon Marion Smithberger ’72. Sr. Margaret Hoffman, OSF served as our cantor and Gabe Lawson ’15 was our organist. This was followed by a complimentary buffet breakfast (prepared by Bosc + Brie) in the Robert C. Walter Student Commons. We were proud to have 1983 alumnus and current parent, Daniel Sullivan, speak to the assembled group about his role as Executive Director of the Memorial Tournament, working with the legendary Jack Nicklaus, the state of the PGA Tour, sportsmanship and the importance of hard work in achieving your goals in life.
Our thanks again to everyone who attended and helped make this event one of the most anticipated on the yearly calendar!
