Each year, hundreds of alumni, friends and family members gather at this event which includes a touching liturgy that honors the memories of all members of the Prep community who passed away over the last twelve months. Alumni organizers read each name as family members process down the center aisle of the auditorium and place candles at the altar in remembrance of their loved one.
Following Mass, attendees will move into the gymnasium for the "Raising of Memorial Banners” as another tribute to members of the St. Francis Prep Terrier athletic tradition who have passed away.
