Dear Friends,

I hope this message finds you and your family well. Our entire Xaverian family is in our thoughts and prayers each day as we navigate these uncharted waters.
Together we are faced with a global uncertainty – the length and extent of which is unknown. When we originally postponed the Spring Spectacular to May 15th, we were hoping that day-to-day life would have returned to normal by then.  At this point, that is unclear.  
While we are extremely hopeful that by May 15th, life will be back to normal, the uncertainty remains.  It is with much thought and great disappointment that I announce that we will cancel the Spectacular this year. I must thank our parents who have worked tirelessly on this event to make it a success. Our co-chairs, Christina Conti P '21 '24, Dominique D’Onofrio P '21 '24, and Christina Greco P '18 '22, along with our coordinators – Lynn Anderson P '22, Christine Banker P '21, Christina Duval P '21, Fran Gillen P '09 '12 '15, Carolyn Guglielmo P '21, Tressa Kabbez P '20 '24, Liz Mezzacappa P '20 '21, and Jennifer Vann P '20 are to be applauded.  Xaverian cannot raise the necessary finances without their help and the help of countless others who came to wrap the gifts and prepare for the event. This year’s Spectacular was set to be the best one yet.
On behalf of President Alesi, I want to thank all of you for your support, your donations and your participation.   Our Spring Spectacular committee has worked so hard on this, our largest annual event, that we do not want their efforts to go in vain.  In its place, we will be holding an on-line virtual raffle party which we will begin to roll out in a few weeks. Stay tuned for future emails and posts on our website at for more information about our upcoming raffles.  
In the meantime, we will reimburse all admissions and advance raffle package sales.  This process will take some time. it is our hope to be expeditious as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Siobhan Galligan P ’18 ’23 ’27 at Please know that the Clipper Bus/Tuition Raffle and the Super 50/50 will still be held. Both winners will be announced on June 25th.
On behalf of the entire Advancement office, thank you again for your support of this event and of Xaverian.  
We look forward to the day when we can return to 7100 Shore Road and celebrate as one community. Until then, please know that we are so very grateful for your support of Xaverian.
Prayers for your safety and health of your family.
