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. Please use the online form to upload a photo of your son and include a short message.

Campus Ministry - Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, Prep Campus Ministry is highlighting important black, Catholic figures. This week, we are spotlighting the Venerable Pierre Toussaint (1766-1853), who was born a slave in Haiti and died a free man in New York City. He was proud of his faith, proud of his culture, and committed to serving others. He is credited by many with being the father of Catholic Charities in New York. Learn more with video and resources.
