Monsignor Dunn Annual Meeting

The last all-school Mass with grades 1-12 was celebrated last Thursday in honor of Monsignor Edward Dunn.  Having challenged the students back in September to memorize the wording on the elementary cornerstone, Father Jeremy asked during his homily if anyone could recite it and one young gentleman nailed it.  Every student and staff member was also given a St. Peter holy card and together they recited the prayer.

The Monsignor Dunn Foundation also held their Annual Dunn Foundation Meeting Lunch at noon with a special presentation by Bill Johnson on the stained-glass windows of the church and the efforts in process to preserve them.  Following lunch, Father Hite blessed a lilac tree that was later planted in memory of Monsignor Dunn. Father Jeremy and Mr. Wasiniak helped with the planting, along with Regina’s Kids. Sister Bernard Marie and Sister Paula were on hand, as well as three high school representatives to the Monsignor Dunn Board.

Thanks to Mr. Bob Vaccaro and Austin Smith who helped prepare the site for planting.  Special thanks also to Todd Tuttle Landscaping for providing the tree.

Thank you to Mrs. Chengelis for some of these photos.

Academic Challenge

The rebroadcast of the April Academic Challenge match against Mt. Gilead will air on Wednesday, July 22, and Sunday, July 26, 8:30 p.m.  It was a very close match and although they lost (14-12), the guys did a nice job according to moderator, Mrs. Maryanne Chengelis.  Thank you to moderators Mr. Steve Bernath and Mrs. Maryanne Chengelis and to the students who represented St. Peter’s High School during this school year’s competitions.

Go Spartans!

Thank you to Mrs. Chengelis for these photos and for the information.

World Fair Trade Day

SPHS students involved in Regina’s Kids distributed dark and milk chocolate candies to celebrate this past Saturday, May 9, World Fair Trade Day.  Thank you, ladies, for this nice treat and for the reminder to purchase fair trade goods.

“The World Fair Trade Day is an initiative of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) that takes place on the second Saturday of May of each year. It is an inclusive worldwide festival of events celebrating Fair Trade as a tangible contribution to the fight against poverty and exploitation, climate change and the economic crisis that has the greatest impact on the world’s most vulnerable populations. The global crisis confirms the need for a fair and sustainable economy locally and globally. Trade must benefit the most vulnerable and deliver sustainable livelihoods by developing opportunities for small and disadvantaged producers. Millions of producers and traders, businesses and policy makers, supporting organizations and volunteers have contributed to the substantial growth of Fair Trade globally.”  (World Fair Trade Organization)
