Alumni Association Hosts Annual Prayer Breakfast

Catholic High School hosted its annual Alumni Prayer and Fellowship Breakfast on Saturday, January 31, 2009, from 8:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. in the CHS Union. Guests included CHS alumni, wives, guests, local brothers who are members of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and members of the Catholic High faculty and staff.

This year’s speaker was Brother Francis David, SC, provincial of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and past president and principal of Catholic High School.

The chairman for this year’s event was Michael Acaldo, a member of the Alumni Association Board of Directors. Acaldo was assisted by David Beach, President of the Alumni Board of Directors, and fellow alumni board members Ben Brown, Blane Clark, Mark Emonet, Matthew Graham, Ken Litz, Sam Losavio, Scott Ritter, Eddie Samson, Adam Serrano, Glen Randow, Director of Alumni Relations and Barbara Camp, Alumni Events Coordinator.

‘The prayer breakfast is an awesome gathering of alumni and friends of Catholic High School. This gives us all an opportunity to come together spiritually to pray for the continued success of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and Catholic High School in their mission of excellence. It’s hard to believe that Brother Francis has been away from Catholic High School for several years now, and what a fantastic gift it is to all of us to have him back,’ commented Acaldo.

Breakfast was provided by Craig Harrington of Harrington’s Caf_ located at 329 Florida Street in downtown Baton Rouge.
