As with other events that have already been postponed, and out of an abundance of caution, Brother Leonard Conway, Prep’s President, and Patrick J. McLaughlin, Prep’s Principal, have asked that we postpone the Annual Spring Reunion and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd. The health and well-being of the St. Francis Prep community, including all our alumni, their family members and friends are of paramount importance as our nation, region and the world confronts the COVID-19 virus.

We are looking to re-schedule this event in the Fall (possibly in October) and will update everyone about this in the days ahead. The Prep will apply existing reservations toward our re-scheduled event. (If you would like us to refund any amount sent for the event, please contact the Office of Development

In the meantime we hope and pray for the health and safety of everyone here at home and abroad. And, we look forward to the time when we will gather and celebrate our reunion and our 2020 Hall of Fame Inductees and Honorary Alumnus:

  • Peter Corritori ’59
  • LeeAnn Canavan-Black ’79,
  • Brother Owen Justinian Sadlier O.S.F ’62, 
  • William Skody (Honorary Alumnus)

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support for St. Francis Prep during this difficult time.

Yours in St. Francis,

Bro. Robert Kent, O.S.F.

Dear Member of the Class of 1950,

I am writing to all the members of St. Francis Prep’s Class of 1950 in the hope that this 70th Anniversary celebration of your graduation on May 2nd is a memorable one indeed. Each member of the Class of 1950 is invited as our guest in honor of your 70th Anniversary. Your own Golden Terrier ticket is Free.  Additional tickets are $60 per person if reserved in advance and $70 if you pay at the door.

Your reunion celebration will begin in the auditorium at 6:00 P.M. with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Immediately following liturgy, Peter Corritori ’59, LeeAnn Canavan-Black ’79, Brother Owen Justinian Sadlier O.S.F ’62, will be inducted into the St. Francis Prep Alumni Hall of Fame & William Skody will be inducted as an Honorary Alumnus. The Alumni Spring Reunion and Hall of Fame induction at the Prep will be highlighted by the presentation of Golden Terrier Society Medals to all members of your Class of 1950. The evening continues with dinner and your Class Reunion at 7:30 P.M. in the library.

Please click on the "register" button OR call Kim Perinuzzi at 718-423-8810 ext. 268.

Here’s another thought: Please help the Prep by giving whatever you can to foster the school’s mission to provide an outstanding, Catholic education in the Franciscan tradition for students from all walks of life. With this in mind, I am hoping that the members of the Class of 1950 will make a special 70th Anniversary gift to establish the  Class ’50 Fund at St. Francis Prep. This fund will be used to help needy students in the future.

So would you consider making a gift of $5, $10, or even $20 for each of the 70 years since your graduation? This would make a wonderful tribute and would also set a positive example for other 70th Anniversary classes in the future.  Whatever you can give will be appreciated and will be included as part of your 70th Anniversary class gift. Thank you very much for your consideration.


What happens if you cannot attend?  By request, I will gladly send a medal to any member of the class who cannot attend on May 2nd. However, you must request one by phone, email or letter --whichever is most convenient for you. Medals will be sent after the Reunion celebration.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

I look forward to being with all of you on Saturday, May 2, 2020.
