Each of the 13 schools that make up our Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools network celebrate Founder's Week to commemorate the founder of the Xaverian Brothers congregation, Theodore James Ryken. Last Friday (12/1) we celebrated with our Founder's Week prayer service, as we recognized those within our schools that represent the values and ideals of Ryken himself, along with the passion and zeal of our patron saint, Francis Xavier, whose December 3rd feast day we celebrate in conjunction with Founder's Week. This year, we honored our 2017 Ryken award recipient, Deacon Kevin McCormack. Please join us in congratulating Deacon McCormack on this well deserved honor as we celebrate his 30 plus years of service to the students and faculty of Xaverian!
We also celebrated Founder's Week by being blessed to witness our very own Brother Jim Smith, CFX, renew his vows to the Congregation of the Xaverian Brothers. Congratulations, Brother Jim!
