Senior Baby Pictures for Yearbook

Attn: Senior Parents

It has become a tradition since the 1998 Hearthstone yearbook to offer senior parents a section to place a baby picture of your son with a personal message. This year we have 10 pages set aside for that purpose and will take submissions until our deadline on Fri., March 1, or until we fill the pages. If you wish to reserve a spot in the section, please use the online form to upload a photo of your son and include a short message.

Campus Ministry - Black History Month

Each week of February, the Prep Campus Ministry team will highlight one important black Catholic figure in honor of Black History Month. This week, we're spotlighting Fr. Augustus Tolton (1854-1897), who conquered almost insurmountable odds and is now regarded as the very first black Roman Catholic priest in the United States. Fr. Tolton is on the road to canonization as a saint in the Catholic Church. His story is one of carving out one's humanity as a man and as a priest in an atmosphere of racial volatility. Learn more with video and resources.
