Father Fonti Takes His Spiritual Sons To A Ballgame

Slide thumbnail

In celebration for his 25th Anniversary as a priest, Father Fonti created a unique experience for our school community at Citi Field. Our daily Mass was held in Citi Field’s auditorium, which overlooks the Jackie Robinson Rotunda.

At Mass Father Fonti shared the blessings he has received these past 25 years as a spiritual father. He shared his vocation story, which began in his home and branched out into his high school years at Cathedral Prep. After our celebration of the Eucharist, Father Fonti was presented with an official NYC Street sign, customized by freshman, Markus Kotnik’s Family. After we prayed, our community enjoyed a lunch prepared by Mama’s of Corona.

Even though the home team lost, the day was a “homerun”! We would like to thank Father Fonti for his 25 years of dedicated service and for treating the school community to a once in a lifetime experience.
