It is with the deepest sorrow and sadness that we share with you that Cathedral Preparatory School and Seminary mourns the loss of one of our own students and family members, Freshman Markus Kotnik.  Markus passed away unexpectedly last night, and the entire Cathedral Prep community is in deep sadness over this news.

Cathedral Prep, the administration, board, faculty, staff, student body, and parents all stand firmly in support of the Kotnik family in this difficult time.

A team of grief counselors will be present in school on Monday for any student wishing to meet with one, and we will share further information in the coming days.

The arrangements are as follows:


Monday, May 15, 2017, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at George Werst Funeral Home (71-41 Cooper Ave., Glendale, NY).


Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at 10:30 AM at St. Pancras Church (72-22 68th St., Glendale, NY).

We pray for Markus, the Kotnik family, and trust in our Lord’s Grace, Love, and Guidance as we honor the memory of our brother and friend, Markus Kotnik.
