Testimonial Class of 2022

“We want to thank you all for the wonderful family BBQ. The entire staff at Cathedral made last night a great starting experience for all the incoming boys and their families. My husband and I were very delighted. I must add, the gym- time, and some bball after the BBQ was awesome! As you noticed, JohnAnthony could not wait to get into his Cathedral shirt, he even wore it today to school.  He is so happy:) I sensed the connection between the boys.  Ultimately, aside from a strong education, we just want JohnAnthony to be in the best possible setting.  Last night helps confirm that we chose the right school. I see Cathedral as a brotherhood-school, which is the environment we want as a family for JohnAnthony.” – Mrs. Holly VanWallendael

On Thursday, February 15th, our Cathedral Fathers, Frs. Fonti, Lee, & Bethge, hosted an evening for our Cathedral Dads, some of whom are “Crusaders” themselves.

Celebrating the gift of fatherhood, our Fathers and Dads shared a meal together, listened to a conference on masculine spirituality given by Dr. Phil Franco, and ended the evening watching the Ranger/Islander game.

History of New York Walking Tour of Brooklyn

On December 15, 2017, Mr. Sammarco ’10 led his History of New York City class on a walking tour through parts of Brooklyn to visit the battlefield and memorials of the Battle of Brooklyn, which took place on August 27, 1776. On the walk, they discussed battle tactics used during the event on Lookout Hill in Prospect Park, with a talk led by, alumnus, Col. Peter Sammarco, ’74. They also visited the Maryland 400 Memorial to discuss the bravery and sacrifice that those troops gave to save the Continental Army. They continued to walk along the Battle Pass, where one of the main parts of the Battle took place on that day in August, 1776. In addition to visiting the battle sites, they stopped at St. Joseph‘s Co-Cathedral where the rector, Msgr. Kieran Harrington, ‘89 gave them a tour of the cathedral. They ended their day of walking at 555 Washington Avenue, where it all began…Brooklyn Cathedral (1914-1985). The Seniors learned a lot about their own local history and braved the elements to learn from two fellow alumni!

[layerslider id=”57″]

The houses of Cathedral Prep School and Seminary, Cathedral House of Formation (Douglaston), and Saint Joseph’s Seminary (Dunwoodie) met in Douglaston on November 1st for All Saints’ Day.

Cathedral Prep would like to thank Bishop DiMarzio, Bishop Chappetto, Monsignor Vicarri(Rector of Saint Joseph’s), Father Sears (Rector of Douglaston) , Father Suckiel (Vocations Director) and the facultys’ of the seminary institutions, for a great visit!
