Brother Barry Landry, SC Says Farewell to CHS

To Serve as Assistant Principal at St. Stanislaus

Brother Barry’s greatest contribution to CHS has been

his spiritual leadership for our community. At almost

every school liturgy for the last seven years, he has shared

that touches students and faculty alike. In doing so, he

has repeatedly reminded us that CHS is a holy place, and

that the daily challenges, successes and even failures we

experience are all part of God’s providential plan for us.

Catholic High School has been and will continue to be

blessed by Brother Barry’s service here.”

Brother Barry has set an example as a spiritual leader

during my three years at Catholic High and continues

to be the supportive, unifying symbol of our school


David John LaPlante ’12

Gene Tullier, CHS President

Brother Barry has many

gifts and talents that he has

shared with the Catholic

High community – his

dry sense of humor, his

intelligence, his leadership

abilities, the list goes on.

Of all the things Brother

Barry brought to us, most

care and concern for his


Ralph Stephens, Class of 1973

Hebrews 12:11 ’No discipline seems pleasant at the time,

but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of

righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.’

When we read this passage, it reminds us of the task that

Brother Barry had to lead the young men of CHS in the

spirit of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. We think without a

doubt he succeeded and, as a result, he will be missed.”

Mitch Billings Retires After 38 Years of Service

“Mitch was the kind of

teacher who told life-stories that

connected to the English lesson he was

teaching. For example, his brilliance was

into a discussion of ’Old Man and the Sea’

in such a way that you didn’t realize you

were being taught literature.

When I returned to teach at CHS in the

early 1980s, he became not only my

mentor but also my dear friend. He was

one of those people who, when he spoke,

everyone listened to in faculty meetings.

He also taught me an appreciation of the

order the house wine’ for example.

Jay Harmon ’78

“Mitch has taught generations of

students what it means to be a Catholic

High man. In the words of one recent

student, ‘He makes you want to do

your homework.’ One of the greatest

compliments I have heard is the

disappointment of former students that

their sons will not have the same teaching

and guidance that they themselves had as

students of Mitch. But every good story has

its conclusion, as any good writer knows.

So in the words of Robert Browning ‘Grow

old with me! The best is yet to be.’

Peace be with you, my friend
