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 1985,

I am writing to all the members of St. Francis Prep’s Class of 1985 in the hope that this 35th Anniversary celebration of your graduation on May 2nd is a memorable one indeed. Each member of the Class of 1985 is invited in honor of your 35th Anniversary. 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.

At 7:30 P.M. the Class of 1985 reunion festivities will begin with cocktails and dinner downstairs in the Cafeteria.

Click here to register online 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 1985 will make a special 35th Anniversary gift to establish the ’85 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 35 years since your graduation? This would make a wonderful tribute and would also set a positive example for other 35th Anniversary classes in the future.  Whatever you can give will be appreciated and will be included as part of your 35th Anniversary class gift. Thank you very much for your consideration.


Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 15, 2020.


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



Brother Robert Kent, O.S.F., Alumni Director
