<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>’ Enduring Mission<br />

When Bishop James J. Hartley founded <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> in 1923, he envisioned a school that would,<br />

among other things, cultivate and nurture vocations to the priesthood. Since then, nearly 300<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> graduates have become priests, including two featured in this issue — Msgr.<br />

Clement Faistl and Fr. Jonathan Wilson.<br />

Msgr. Faistl graduated from <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong> in 1929 and from <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

College-Seminary in 1933. The senior priest in our Diocese, last May he celebrated the 66th<br />

anniversary of his ordination. In this issue’s feature story, Faistl says he came to <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

to receive the best education available. It was only “in the years that followed,” he said, “that<br />

the vocation to the priesthood came to me and others at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.”<br />

While just this past May, 1992 graduate Fr. Jonathan Wilson became our diocese’s newest<br />

priest.<br />

Fr. Wilson comments in this issue that<br />

“at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> there was the feeling of being<br />

part of a tradition that had preceded me and<br />

I was now becoming part of. I was challenged<br />

to be my best and it’s where I was<br />

encouraged to achieve excellence in every<br />

respect.” He excelled in academics, serving<br />

as class vice-president and a youth council<br />

leader. Whether it was the priesthood or<br />

some other career, I’m convinced that Wilson<br />

would have been very successful.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> has a long tradition of<br />

producing both lay and religious leaders who<br />

are dedicated to the Church. Three <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> graduates, for example, have gone on<br />

to be bishops. On the other end of the spectrum, meanwhile, several graduates are deacons and<br />

many alumni serve on parish councils and school boards and on various diocesan agencies.<br />

In founding <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, Bishop Hartley understood that every student who enrolled<br />

wouldn’t want to become a priest, so he sought to give students a complete, thorough, and sound<br />

classical training to succeed in whatever vocation or field they eventually pursued.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> to this day has worked to honor Bishop Hartley’s vision and continues to<br />

produce not only religious leaders, but graduates who have succeeded in politics, business,<br />

entertainment, medicine, athletics, and other endeavors. Inside you can read about some of<br />

them. This edition has features on graduates who’ve followed careers in the broad field of<br />

entertainment, ranging from Bob Shay ’63 and television, to Bernie DeLeo ’79 as a playwright<br />

and actor, to James Babson ’93 on the silver screen, to Joey Jones ’92 and his work in computer<br />

animation. Also in this issue is a feature about Christopher Alvarez-Breckenridge ’01, an<br />

upcoming research scientist.<br />

And in this issue is a spread about <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>’ spacious Memorial Grove in honor of our<br />

graduates and those from the former Aquinas College High <strong>School</strong> — 40 in all — who gave their<br />

lives in service to America. The Memorial was dedicated last spring in a moving ceremony.<br />

We pray that the good Lord will continue to bless our efforts here at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> in our<br />

dedication to teach and nurture the Gospel of Christ and instill that inspiring message of hope<br />

in the minds and lives of our students. It is our fervent hope that our students will become<br />

“men of God” and remain true to the call of being their “brother’s keeper.”<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>

In this half-century old photo, Fr. Faistl is shown in 1951 receiving orders in a makeshift battlefield chapel during the<br />

Korean War. He was one of six Columbus diocesan priests serving in the armed forces at the time and was one of<br />

only two who also had been called after military service in World War II.<br />

Msgr. Faistl: a long life of<br />

remarkable service<br />

Monsignor Clement Faistl has lived<br />

a long life of remarkable service<br />

unlike any other <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

graduate. Or, for that matter, unlike<br />

most graduates of any Catholic school.<br />

As a pastor, he has shepherded many<br />

parishes. As an army chaplain, he comforted<br />

dying soldiers and fortified the<br />

spirit of those in combat during two wars<br />

— World War II and the Korean War.<br />

And, as a missionary, he helped quench<br />

the thirst of people yearning to hear the<br />

inspiring message of Christ.<br />

At age 90, he also happens to be the<br />

oldest living priest in the Columbus<br />

Diocese and the oldest priest-graduate of<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.<br />

Born in Columbus, Faistl lived his<br />

early years on Bulen Avenue just south of<br />

Franklin Park. He’s a graduate of the<br />

former <strong>St</strong>. Joseph Cathedral <strong>School</strong>, which<br />

was located on Broad <strong>St</strong>reet just east of<br />

the Cathedral. While there he was coaxed<br />

by his pastor at Holy Rosary, Fr. James<br />

McCarney, to enroll at the new <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>.<br />

Problem was, Faistl at the time was<br />

still only in seventh grade. “I was skipped<br />

a grade because <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> was just<br />

opening and priests were being asked to<br />

send boys to the seminary at <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>…so Fr. McCarney passed me to<br />

the eighth grade.” Faistl said he accepted<br />

The Distinctive Leader in Catholic Education<br />

the offer because he thought it afforded<br />

him an opportunity to get a better education.<br />

“In the years that followed was<br />

when the vocation to the priesthood came<br />

to me and others at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.”<br />

When construction of the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

school building at 2010 E. Broad <strong>St</strong>. was<br />

completed in the fall of 1925, Faistl began<br />

his high school studies there. He and his<br />

freshmen classmates were joined by the<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> freshman and sophomore<br />

classes that had been taught at the former<br />

Sacred Heart <strong>School</strong> about a mile north of<br />

downtown Columbus while the new high<br />

school building was being constructed.<br />

Faistl’s <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> class holds the distinction<br />

of being the first to spend all four<br />

years in the Broad <strong>St</strong>reet school building.<br />

The <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> students had a pleasant<br />

time with many of the professors —<br />

all priests — Faistl said, although he<br />

found a few to be very stern. “It was quite<br />

an experience for us who just left grade<br />

school to meet these men who were<br />

dedicated to their lives as teachers and<br />

priests.”<br />

Faistl worried about passing some of<br />

his courses because he had skipped a<br />

year’s worth of material to enter high<br />

school early. Msgr. John J. Murphy, his<br />

pastor at Holy Rosary, helped him get<br />

acclimated to <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> and the rigorous<br />

studies there, Faistl said. He was a<br />

“source of great encouragement.” Being a<br />

big guy, Faistl also played football for the<br />

Carolians, as they were called then. And<br />

had a different coach every year.<br />

Faistl made it through his courses<br />

(which included four years of Latin and<br />

two years of Greek in the demanding<br />

college prep curriculum) and graduated<br />

from <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong> in<br />

1929.<br />

He went on to earn a degree four<br />

years later from <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> College-<br />

Seminary, which was housed in the same<br />

building as the prep school. (<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

College suspended operations in 1969.)<br />

Faistl finished his religious studies in<br />

Cincinnati at Mt. <strong>St</strong>. Mary Seminary and<br />

was ordained a priest by Bishop James J.<br />

Hartley on May 6, 1937 in <strong>St</strong>. Joseph<br />

Cathedral.<br />

Out of a family of seven, he and his<br />

younger brother, Francis, became priests<br />

and his sister, Mary, joined a convent.<br />

Francis graduated from <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

<strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong> in 1932, but was<br />

transferred to Colorado as a priest because<br />

Bishop Hartley disliked having<br />

siblings serve as priests in the same<br />

diocese.<br />

In his early years as a priest, Msgr.<br />

Faistl served at <strong>St</strong>. Anthony Hospital in<br />

Columbus, <strong>St</strong>. Vincent Parish in Mt.<br />

Vernon, and <strong>St</strong>. Joseph Parish in<br />

Fairpoint, Ohio, and moved on to associate<br />

pastor of Newark <strong>St</strong>. Francis Parish.<br />

While assigned at <strong>St</strong>. Francis, he<br />

recalled “One day I ended up visiting the<br />

pastor, Father Murphy at Holy Rosary<br />

from where I was ordained. Fr. Murphy<br />

wondered why I was not involved in the<br />

army.” At that time — 1943 — World War<br />

II was growing in size and intensity as the<br />

allies battled to reverse aggression in<br />

Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. The<br />

U.S. military buildup was going full force;<br />

by the end of the war in 1945, more than<br />

16.4 million men and women had served<br />

in the U.S. military.<br />

As a consequence, there was a critical<br />

and growing need for priests, ministers<br />

and rabbis to serve as chaplains. Bishops<br />

across the country, and that included<br />

Bishop Hartley, Faistl said, were “encouraged”<br />

to enlist priests for service to the<br />

armed forces. Hartley, for whom Faistl<br />

once served daily Mass, told Faistl that<br />

“he was being pressured by a higher<br />

authority to send young priests into<br />

service.” So Faistl joined the chaplain<br />

corps.<br />

Faistl was uncertain what lay before<br />

him when he entered the chaplain corps<br />

in June of 1943. “When the bishop sent<br />

me into the service, the United <strong>St</strong>ates at<br />

that time was not militarily involved in<br />

heavy fighting, but the armies were being<br />


Continued from page 3<br />

built up.”<br />

Thanks to concern shown by the same<br />

teachers who were his priestly role<br />

models at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> — he mentioned<br />

among them Dr. Paul J. Glenn and Fr.<br />

Joseph Cousins — Faistl said he received<br />

great support from them. They helped<br />

him cope with the military training that<br />

was necessary and, he said, they encouraged<br />

him with their prayers and letters.<br />

Faistl was assigned to a division with<br />

the 101st Airborne as a regimental chaplain.<br />

On D-Day, June 6, 1944, he was with<br />

the group’s 37th glider regiment as a part<br />

of the invasion forces — the largest<br />

assault in history by sea — that landed at<br />

Normandy, France. That day as<br />

machinegun fire sprayed, grenades<br />

exploded, and artillery shells whistled<br />

overhead around him, and artillery shells<br />

whizzed above his head, Faistl bravely<br />

made his way to the dead and dying to<br />

administer last rites and to console the<br />

wounded and frightened.<br />

Chaplains worked in combat as<br />

ministers for soldiers who faced the<br />

danger of death at any moment. Faistl<br />

recounted in a letter he sent to his parents<br />

how “men appreciate the value of<br />

Mass in their time of danger.” When word<br />

got around about a Mass being celebrated,<br />

men who had not been regular attendees<br />

back in the states came from everywhere<br />

to be a part of the service, he said. In his<br />

letter he expressed his hope that the<br />

soldier’s trust in the power of the Mass<br />

“grows and ripens into a new Catholic<br />

manhood when these men return home.”<br />

It was highly dangerous work for<br />

chaplains to tend to the wounded, care for<br />

the dead, assist in graves registration, and<br />

travel about in combat areas to say Mass.<br />

During World War II, 478 chaplains were<br />

killed, third in the percentage of casualties,<br />

behind the infantry and airmen.<br />

By the very nature of their spiritual<br />

work, chaplains sought to be with the<br />

mortally wounded. Their job was to<br />

perform last rites and offer comfort during<br />

what were terrifying moments for both<br />

the wounded and the chaplains. Chaplains<br />

placed their lives in danger over and<br />

over to be in the trenches, foxholes, and<br />

along the front lines with their men.<br />

Without the luxury of a permanent<br />

tent or local chapel, necessity became the<br />

mother of invention when it came time to<br />

celebrate Mass. An altar often took the<br />

form of an old crate or table or the hood of<br />

a jeep. Open areas exposed soldiers and<br />

priests to enemy gunfire, so barns, tree<br />

groves, abandoned homes, and damaged<br />

businesses were used for religious services.<br />

Six months after the invasion of<br />

4<br />

France, Faistl was with the 101st<br />

at the scene of another epic clash<br />

— the famous Battle of the Bulge.<br />

In a determined bid to stop the<br />

Allied liberating offensive across<br />

Europe, German dictator Adolph<br />

Hitler committed 12 divisions to<br />

capturing the key crossroads city<br />

of Bastogne, Belgium. General<br />

Eisenhower, the commander of all<br />

Allied forces in Europe, sent the<br />

101st Airborne and other American<br />

units to hold the city at all costs.<br />

In December of 1944 Faistl and his<br />

airborne comrades found themselves<br />

surrounded and cut off from<br />

Allied support. They were in<br />

desparate straits.<br />

He recounted the tense situation<br />

10 years later at a reunion of<br />

the 101st Airborne Division Association<br />

in Cleveland. “Only by the<br />

grace of God,” he said, were they<br />

able to beat back repeated attempts by the<br />

German army to take Bastogne. “The big<br />

thing in our favor was that the Germans<br />

somehow overestimated our strength.<br />

They kept probing us instead of hitting us<br />

with a full-scale tank attack.” When the<br />

skies cleared to allow air support and the<br />

arrival of reinforcements, the Allies were<br />

able to break the German siege.<br />

Faistl twice was decorated with the<br />

Bronze <strong>St</strong>ar for “gallantry in action” for<br />

his service in the face of mortal danger.<br />

He also won the rank of captain. With all<br />

humility in the world, Faistl downplays<br />

his role in the war. “I didn’t think of<br />

anything remarkable that I did.”<br />

He returned home to the Columbus<br />

diocese in March 1946 for assignment<br />

from the new bishop — Michael J. Ready.<br />

He was assigned as pastor at Millersburg<br />

<strong>St</strong>. Peter and New Boston <strong>St</strong>. Monica<br />

before the politics of the Cold War came to<br />

an explosive head.<br />

On June 25, 1950, North Korean<br />

forces invaded South Korea pitting, the<br />

Soviet-backed communists against the<br />

U.S. supported South Koreans. Faistl<br />

went back into the army in October of<br />

that year and was assigned as chaplain to<br />

the 82nd Airborne Division at Ft. Bragg<br />

N.C.. There he made more than 10 jumps<br />

as a way to earn the respect of the other<br />

paratroopers in the division.<br />

Faistl was sent to Korea where he<br />

went into combat once again. In a letter<br />

he sent home to his family in August of<br />

1952, he wrote about a trip to the front<br />

line to say Mass. “I went to the 1st battalion<br />

trenches and hunkered down on the<br />

main line of resistance, THE front line<br />

known as the Jamestown line. I never<br />

dreamed this line existed across the<br />

Korean peninsula — a country half way<br />

Airborne “All American”<br />

In July of 1951, Fr. Faistl (far left) and others from the 82 Airborne<br />

Division trained at Ft. Bragg, N.C. for deployment in the Korean<br />

War. In World War II he served as chaplain with the 101st<br />

Airborne’s glider regiment in the D-day invasion and later in the<br />

epic Battle of the Bulge.<br />

around the world from the USA. I fear<br />

the war will not be easy or short.”<br />

For two more years Faistl would<br />

make the hood of a jeep or a wooden<br />

supply crate his altar. Once again he<br />

found himself surrounded by death on a<br />

grisly scale. The “Forgotten War” did not<br />

carry the same moral outcries or stateside<br />

support the soldiers had enjoyed in WWII,<br />

but it was killing Americans regardless.<br />

With the signing of the armistice two<br />

years later in November of 1953, Faistl<br />

was on his way back home again. During<br />

the next 26 years, he served as pastor at<br />

several parishes (<strong>St</strong>. Dominic, Danville <strong>St</strong>.<br />

Luke, and LaRue <strong>St</strong>. Joseph). He served<br />

as a chaplain at Good Shepherd manor,<br />

Grant Hospital, and Our Lady of the<br />

Blessed Sacrament Monastery.<br />

In 1980, at the age of 68, he volunteered<br />

to become a missionary in the<br />

Philippines. He had read that only 13% of<br />

the world’s clergy was serving the Philippines<br />

and South America despite the fact<br />

that 45% of the world’s Catholics lived in<br />

those areas. To help serve the huge<br />

Catholic population in the Philippines,<br />

Faistl journeyed to San Pablo and was<br />

assigned a parish in Laguna. For two<br />

years he said Mass several times a day<br />

and often trekked on foot several miles<br />

over mountains between villages to reach<br />

the people of San Pablo.<br />

Faistl returned to the Columbus<br />

Diocese in 1983 and made his home at the<br />

Vianney residence for several years and<br />

later moved to Christ the King Parish to<br />

live. Faistl was named a monsignor by<br />

Pope John Paul II in October 1995 at the<br />

age of 82. Now 90, alert, and in good<br />

health, he lives at The Villas of <strong>St</strong>.<br />

Therese, his home for nearly two years.<br />

Buckeyes (1994-97)<br />

and ranks fifth on OSU’s career football<br />

rushing list. He earned all-America and<br />

all-Big Ten honors his junior year and<br />

helped lead the Buckeyes to a 20-17<br />

victory over Arizona <strong>St</strong>ate in the 1997<br />

Rose Bowl.<br />

He played on several NFL teams the<br />

next two seasons (1998-99) before joining<br />

the Rhein Fire of the World Football<br />

League. Pearson scored the winning<br />

touchdown in the Rhein Fire’s 13-10<br />

victory over the Scottish Claymores in the<br />

2000 World Bowl.<br />

Booker Brooks, an assistant coach for<br />

the football Cardinals, was Pearson’s<br />

coach on the Rhein Fire team. In a<br />

chance meeting in Columbus Booker<br />

asked Pearson if he was interested in<br />

coaching. That led to a meeting with <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> head coach Jeff Liebert and<br />

Pearson soon was invited to join the<br />

Cardinal staff.<br />

Also joining Liebert’s staff this year<br />

are assistant coaches Kyle Flynn and<br />

Cyrus Haddad ’02.<br />

In The Know Team takes 6th<br />

in National Tournament<br />

The <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> ITK team accomplished<br />

what no other Ohio high school team had<br />

been able to do for nearly 15 years: make<br />

the finals of the Panasonic National<br />

Academic Tournament at Disneyworld in<br />

Orlando, Florida. Fresh off their victory at<br />

the Ohio In the Know state championship,<br />

this exceptional group of five seniors went<br />

on to finish as the sixth-best team in the<br />

nation.<br />

After they started the tournament<br />

with a bruising loss, they rebounded to<br />

handily win the consolation bracket and<br />

qualify for the next round. The <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

underdogs pulled off a surprising upset to<br />

beat former tournament champions<br />

Maryland and Washington D.C. to make<br />

the finals, where they earned their<br />

remarkable sixth-place finish.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> was only one of two state<br />

teams in the finals not using an ‘all-star’<br />

team made up of the best six handpicked<br />

students from their state. This year’s ITK<br />

Varsity team was made up of Tony<br />

Bendinelli, Alex Connor, Alexander Cueto,<br />

James Pease, and Michael Lewandowski.<br />

Bendinelli, Connor, Pease, and<br />

Lewandowski were National Merit Finalist<br />

and Cueto was a National Merit<br />

Commended Scholar.<br />

Dr. Sarah Vandermeer credited team<br />

chemistry as one of the reasons for its<br />

success. She has served as the ITK<br />

adviser for the last eight years and said<br />

she’s never had such an exceptionally<br />

balanced team. “They didn’t have just one<br />

superstar and a supporting cast. This<br />

group was a team, with each one having<br />

an area that they were strong in, whether<br />

that was art, math, science, etc. Their<br />

knowledge overlapped each other’s and<br />

made for a strong unit.”<br />

Mahler and Ritter win<br />

Jack Ryan Award<br />

Two students — Leif Mahler and Adam<br />

Ritter — share the Jack Ryan most<br />

valuable player award for <strong>2003</strong>. Mahler<br />

earlier was voted the Jim O’Neill MVP as<br />

a member of the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> baseball<br />

team. Ritter won the Ken Flaherty MVP<br />

for his performance on the Cardinal<br />

swimming team.<br />

Playing shortstop, Mahler helped lead<br />

the Cardinals to the Div. I central district<br />

finals with his outstanding defensive and<br />

offensive play. He was voted all-Central<br />

Catholic League, all-district, and all-Ohio.<br />

He batted over .500 in the CCL in which<br />

the team went 10-0 and won the league<br />

crown. Mahler hit safely in all but one<br />

game and had a .962 fielding percentage.<br />

He is headed to the Big Ten to play with<br />

the University of Michigan.<br />

In June, Mahler graduated with a 3.9<br />

GPA. He received the President’s Award<br />

for Education in recognition of keeping his<br />

GPA over 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and scored in<br />

the top 15 percent in math or reading on<br />

the ACT or SAT test. A National Honor<br />

Society qualifier, he earned the <strong>St</strong>ate<br />

Board of Education Award of Merit, and<br />

was a National Merit Commended<br />

Scholar.<br />

He also received the Ohio Wesleyan<br />

University Presidential Scholarship, The<br />

Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate University’s Scholar Honors<br />

Program scholarship, and The University<br />

of Michigan Baseball Scholarship. Mahler,<br />

who signed a letter of intent last spring to<br />

award, which includes a $500 check, was set up to<br />

recognize a <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> student who exemplified the<br />

virtues of “being your brother’s keeper” and to<br />

encourage other students to aspire to the same. Woolum<br />

<strong>School</strong> blood drive<br />

sought gift of life<br />

The 14th annual <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> blood drive<br />

last April provided the local Red Cross a<br />

hefty deposit for its local blood bank. It<br />

also sought the gift of life for Msgr. Colby<br />

Grimes in his battle with leukemia.<br />

Thanks to the tireless efforts of school<br />

nurse Betsy Mason and others, the Red<br />

Cross collected a record 151 units of blood,<br />

far surpassing any previous year’s total.<br />

Those who donated at least a pint of blood<br />

were also able to provide blood samples to<br />

be tested for the National Bone Marrow<br />

Registry. An active search had been in<br />

progress to find a bone marrow transplant<br />

candidate who matched Msgr. Grimes’<br />

bone marrow type.<br />

Sadly, Grimes lost his fight against<br />

the disease just 16 days later on Good<br />

Friday. He was the Cardinal soccer team’s<br />

chaplain, as well as a great friend to many<br />

students, staff, and alumni.<br />

Anthony J. Bendinelli (photo above)<br />

received the ‘Highest Accum for Four<br />

Years’ Award at this year’s commencement.<br />

He concluded his senior year with a<br />

4.24 GPA and a long list of impressive<br />

academic achievements. He attained a<br />

perfect 1600 score on his ACTs and was<br />

the only male from Ohio to earn an<br />

invitation to the White House as a Presidential<br />

Scholar. He missed that ceremony<br />

to help his In The Know teammates<br />

compete for a national championship at<br />

the Panasonic National Academic Challenge<br />

at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.<br />

The Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate ITK champions worked<br />

their magic and finished in sixth place.<br />

Bendinelli was named a National<br />

Merit Finalist and voted by his peers as<br />

the secretary of the National Honor<br />

Society. Other honors he received included:<br />

the National Merit Scholarship,<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. Peter Knights of Columbus Scholarship,<br />

as well as scholarships from the<br />

University of Notre Dame, the University<br />

of Dayton, Vanderbilt University, The<br />

Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate University, and Denison<br />

University. But the well-rounded grad also<br />

played football, ran track, and tutored<br />

while in school, and has been working<br />

towards becoming an Eagle Scout. He will<br />

continuing his education by attending the<br />

University of Notre Dame in the fall.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>

New memorial honors ex-students of two<br />

Catholic high schools who died in military service<br />

A<br />

unique memorial honoring<br />

the graduates and former<br />

students of two Columbus<br />

Catholic high schools who died in<br />

military service for America from<br />

World War I to the present has<br />

been created at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong><br />

<strong>School</strong> in partnership with the<br />

alumni association of the former<br />

Aquinas College High <strong>School</strong>.<br />

The “Memorial Grove,” consists<br />

of 40 newly-planted crabapple trees,<br />

one for each of the deceased. A<br />

bronze marker, mounted on a huge<br />

stone at the entrance of the grove,<br />

is engraved with the names of the<br />

fallen — 16 from <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> and 24<br />

from Aquinas, an all-boys school<br />

that ended operations in 1965.<br />

The memorial was dedicated<br />

May 22 with a religious blessing and<br />

military salute. The somber ceremony<br />

was attended by some 150<br />

people, that included family members<br />

of the deceased, former classmates,<br />

friends, and alumni of both<br />

schools, plus the entire <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

student body of nearly 600.<br />

Engraved on the plaque are the<br />

names of 12 former <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

students who died in World War II, two<br />

who died in the Korean War, one in<br />

Vietnam, and one in the “9-1-1” terrorist<br />

attack on the twin towers in New York<br />

City on Sept.11, 200l.<br />

The 24 former Aquinas students<br />

memorialized on the plaque include one<br />

killed in World War I, 16 who died serving<br />

in World War II, two (plus a priest faculty<br />

member) in the Korean War, and four in<br />

Vietnam. The three-ton granite boulder<br />

on which the plaque is mounted was<br />

donated by Tom Coffman, <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

sculptor, Alfred Tibor.<br />

An honor guard from American<br />

Legion Southway Post 144 represented<br />

all military branches and<br />

Msgr. Thomas Bennett, a 1953 graduate<br />

of the former <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> College and<br />

a member of the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Prep<br />

teaching staff for 38 years, blessed<br />

the Memorial Grove. The <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> chorus, directed by Johnny<br />

<strong>St</strong>einer and Doug Montgomery,<br />

performed the alma mater songs of<br />

both schools and provided a musical<br />

tribute.<br />

“Aquinas alumni are touched and<br />

honored,” said Aquinas alumni<br />

secretary Lou Nobile, “that <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> has set aside on its campus<br />

this memorial grove to honor our<br />

Aquinas alumni as well as those of<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> who died in service to<br />

their country. This not only commemorates<br />

Aquinas graduates who<br />

gave their lives for our country, but<br />

helps preserve the memory of<br />

Aquinas College High <strong>School</strong>.<br />

“<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> and Aquinas have long<br />

and rich traditions in Columbus, and<br />

having the names of our fallen<br />

heroes side by side on this beautiful<br />

memorial plaque seems very fitting,<br />

and certainly is heart-warming to all<br />

concerned,” Nobile said.<br />

Aquinas, as is <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, was an<br />

all-boys Catholic school that served<br />

the Columbus and Central Ohio<br />

community for 60 years.<br />

“We’re pleased and honored,” said <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> principal Dominic Cavello, “to join<br />

with Aquinas<br />

representatives in<br />

honoring men<br />

from our two<br />

schools who died<br />

while serving our<br />

country. It is<br />

right and fitting<br />

that we remember<br />

and honor<br />

them for making<br />

the supreme<br />

sacrifice to allow<br />

us to continue<br />

Newest memorial is third<br />

at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

The Memorial Grove developed this<br />

spring for former students who died in<br />

the military is the third one dedicated on<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> campus.<br />

The first memorial was created in<br />

1947 when 12 flowering crabapple trees<br />

were planted along the sidewalk to the<br />

school’s Broad <strong>St</strong>reet entrance to memorialize<br />

the 12 alumni who died in World<br />

War II service.<br />

The late Msgr. Joseph A. Cousins, a<br />

scholarly faculty member who initiated<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> stage productions, and then<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Alumni Association president<br />

Paul Gallo ’36, organized that effort.<br />

The trees were a gift from the school’s<br />

1946 class.<br />

The 1947 ceremony began with a<br />

candlelight procession headed by the <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> choir and a military color guard.<br />

The procession wound its way to Our<br />

Lady of Lourdes Grotto, completed by <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> collegians in 1931, for benediction<br />

of the Blessed Sacrament and<br />

dedication to the Blessed Virgin. Msgr.<br />

Paul J. Glenn, then the school rector,<br />

gave the dedication address.<br />

Disease forced removal of the orginal<br />

memorial trees. With money raised by<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> student council, a new<br />

strand of 14 trees was planted along the<br />

sidewalk in 1994. They memorialized<br />

the 12 WWII dead and two alumni lost<br />

during the Vietnam War. Principal<br />

Dominic J. Cavello, who served in<br />

Vietnam, delivered the keynote address.<br />

Msgr. F. Thomas Gallen ’40, who taught<br />

at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> for a record 48 years,<br />

blessed the trees.<br />

American Legion Southway Post<br />

144, which provided the honor guard and<br />

conducted the military service for this<br />

year’s ceremony, did the same in 1994.<br />

Those memorial trees remained<br />

until the fall of 2002 when extensive<br />

renovation and landscaping work around<br />

the main school building required their<br />

removal.<br />

some competition.”<br />

The two schools competed only<br />

occasionally on the athletic field. <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> played in various Catholic leagues<br />

while Aquinas played in the Columbus<br />

City League. Aquinas was the only nonpublic<br />

school to gain membership in that<br />

league. That was made possible through<br />

the personal intercession of one of the<br />

Wolfe family members (owner-publisher of<br />

The Columbus Dispatch) after Aquinas<br />

was first rejected by the league.<br />

My Friend Bob Ferris<br />

A<br />

s Catholics we have a lot of saints<br />

whose exemplary lives can show<br />

us how to live. However, I think<br />

what we really need is more people like<br />

Bob Ferris. Bob was a tennis player, but<br />

for some reason when I think about his<br />

life I recall something that was once said<br />

about Ben Hogan, the famous golfer: “I<br />

played golf with him once,” this person<br />

recalled, “and he only said two words on<br />

the whole round, but he said them on<br />

every hole, ‘you’re away.’” In the game of<br />

life Bob was never in the rough, he was<br />

always where he was supposed to be.<br />

Bob was a good son, a good brother, a<br />

good husband and a good father. Very few<br />

men can look themselves in the mirror<br />

and say yes to all four of<br />

those questions. Bob was<br />

a graduate of Immaculate<br />

Conception, <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

and Notre Dame. He had<br />

the fine traditions of those<br />

schools written on his face<br />

and on his soul. All three<br />

schools can proudly say<br />

“He was one of ours”. Bob<br />

consistently did his best in<br />

school. His father was a<br />

railroad engineer so Bob<br />

learned to work at an<br />

early age. As a young boy<br />

he worked on survey<br />

crews for civil engineers. Bob Ferris, ’56<br />

I’ve done that kind of work<br />

and I know that the survey chiefs like<br />

workers who do what needs to be done<br />

without being told. Bob was like that.<br />

At the start of Bob’s sophomore year<br />

in college there was an epidemic called<br />

the Asian flu. Bob missed so much school<br />

that he had to drop out of Notre Dame<br />

and come back to Columbus to work.<br />

Unfortunately he suffered a serious back<br />

injury that would be with him for the rest<br />

of his life. I remember visiting him at Mt.<br />

Carmel Hospital the following summer.<br />

He was in traction and said sometimes the<br />

pain was so severe that his eyes felt like<br />

they were going to bulge out of his head.<br />

I had had back pains myself and he was<br />

right. It is on a par with kidney stones.<br />

But Bob did not complain, he just commented<br />

about the pain. It did not stop<br />

Bob from flirting with the nurses and the<br />

pretty ones all seemed to look for excuses<br />

to visit his room. I was kind of jealous<br />

and thought that Bob was able to do that<br />

because he had two pretty sisters. However,<br />

he was able to do it because he was a<br />

nice person and everybody sensed that.<br />

Like me, Bob was not anything special<br />

as an athlete. However, through hard<br />

work he developed into an excellent tennis<br />

player and made the freshmen team at<br />

Notre Dame. In the 70’s he used to visit<br />

me in Chicago and we would play at my<br />

tennis club. I was able to keep up with<br />

him because he had lost a lot because of<br />

his back injury. He should have said<br />

something like, “Rankin, I’d run you off<br />

the court, if I didn’t have a bad back.”<br />

However, Bob only made jokes about the<br />

corset he had to wear.<br />

Because of Bob’s<br />

injury he attended Ohio<br />

<strong>St</strong>ate for a year or two.<br />

He joined a fraternity, a<br />

Catholic one of course.<br />

The church never said that<br />

we should not enjoy life,<br />

have a beer once in a<br />

while and dance with the<br />

girls. However, don’t<br />

change your values. While<br />

at OSU he met his future<br />

wife, Sue Miller, A perfect<br />

match. She must be the<br />

sweetest girl I have ever<br />

met.<br />

Bob was always<br />

proud of his kids. He<br />

pushed them hard to do their best. Bob<br />

wasn’t rich, but he sent his kids to the<br />

best colleges, Holy Cross, Virginia Law<br />

<strong>School</strong>. Two doctors and a lawyer. His<br />

kids were not spoiled either. His son<br />

Bobby worked for several years in Honduras<br />

as a volunteer doctor.<br />

Bob was among the missing in the<br />

WTC terrorist disaster. In his case<br />

missing is the right word. He is missed by<br />

his family, his friends and his work<br />

associates. I will remember him by trying<br />

to live the way he lived. My parents are<br />

deceased and I never had any siblings.<br />

However, in the years that I have remaining,<br />

I will try to be the best possible<br />

husband and best possible father that I<br />

can. That way, someday, maybe I will get<br />

to play tennis again with Bob Ferris.<br />

Please God, if you are going to fix his<br />

back, you have to fix my knees. Otherwise,<br />

he is going to run me right off the<br />

court.<br />

grove. <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> created the memorial<br />

to honor alumni of the two schools who<br />

died in military and other service to<br />

America.<br />

He was working on the 102nd floor of the<br />

south tower when it was struck, and<br />

eventually destroyed, by a hijacked<br />

passenger plane controlled by four suicidal<br />

terrorists.<br />

Even though he always wore his<br />

Notre Dame ring, Ferris for some unexplained<br />

reason went to work that fateful<br />

day without the ring. Sue discovered the<br />

ring among her husband’s belongings on<br />

his nightstand. For some unknown<br />

reason, he had taken the ring off and left<br />

it on the nightstand. She wears the ring<br />

on a chain in his memory.<br />

Memorial Grove<br />

This is a view of the new Memorial Grove, dedicated in May to 40 former students of <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong><br />

<strong>School</strong> and Aquinas College High <strong>School</strong> who died in service to America.<br />

Former Aquinas High had 4,200 graduates<br />

Aquinas College High <strong>School</strong> in Columbus<br />

was operated as an all-boys school<br />

by the Dominican Fathers from 1905 to<br />

1965. Some 4,200 boys graduated from<br />

the school, of which some 2,000 are still<br />

living, according to Aquinas alumni<br />

secretary Lou Nobile.<br />

During most of its nearly 60 school<br />

years, Aquinas was located at Mt.<br />

Vernon and Washington Avenues,<br />

which is now part of the ever-growing<br />

Columbus <strong>St</strong>ate Community College.<br />

As was the case with <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

<strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>, Aquinas held its<br />

first classes in a grade school, <strong>St</strong>.<br />

Patrick, which no longer exists, but is<br />

survived by its thriving parish and<br />

church, <strong>St</strong>. Patrick, at 376 E. Naghten<br />

<strong>St</strong>. near downtown Columbus. (<strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>, founded in 1923, held classes<br />

the first two years at Sacred Heart<br />

grade school, also no longer existing,<br />

but survived by its parish and church.)<br />

Aquinas opened its doors to 62<br />

students in two <strong>St</strong>. Patrick grade school<br />

classrooms on Sept. 12, 1905. Meanwhile,<br />

construction of a building for the<br />

new high school had begun on the site<br />

of the first Roman Catholic cemetery in<br />

Columbus on Mt. Vernon Avenue. It<br />

was ready for use in February, 1906.<br />

Originally named <strong>St</strong>. Patrick’s<br />

College, the new school enjoyed strong<br />

enrollment. Plans were made in 1911 to<br />

enlarge the facilities and to change the<br />

name to Aquinas College, which eventually<br />

became known as Aquinas College<br />

High <strong>School</strong>. (Plans to operate a college<br />

never materialized. A dormitory was built<br />

to board students planning for the Dominican<br />

religious life.)<br />

The last addition, a gymnasium with<br />

an upper floor housing classrooms, was<br />

built in 1925. Excavated dirt for that<br />

structure was used to help build the levee<br />

to protect <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> from potential flood<br />

waters from Alum Creek.<br />

The Aquinas Gym was dedicated by<br />

Bishop James J. Hartley, the founder of<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, on Nov. 1, 1925. Three days<br />

later Bishop Hartley dedicated the newlybuilt<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> College Seminary at<br />

2010 E. Broad <strong>St</strong>., the present main<br />

structure on the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> campus.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> College Seminary operated<br />

in that building from 1931 to 1969.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong> was<br />

moved to the Broad <strong>St</strong>reet building when<br />

it was completed in 1925. The prep school<br />

held classes its first two years, starting in<br />

1923, at Sacred Heart. The prep school<br />

originally was listed as a “department” of<br />

the college seminary.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> grad played on<br />

OSU’s national title grid team<br />

SBy Lou Fabro ’49<br />

t. <strong>Charles</strong> graduate <strong>St</strong>even T. Moore<br />

had a great time at the Fiesta Bowl<br />

in Tempe, Ariz., last January when<br />

the Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate Buckeyes upset the Miami<br />

Hurricanes to win the national college<br />

football championship. He not only saw<br />

the game from close range, but played in<br />

the thrilling overtime battle for the<br />

victorious Buckeyes.<br />

And he’s back this year for his third<br />

campaign with the Buckeye football team.<br />

“It was a blast,” is how he described<br />

his Fiesta Bowl experience. With maybe a<br />

touch of hyperbole, he added: “it was<br />

really great knowing that everyone in the<br />

country was watching us.” It was one of<br />

the most-watched — and most exciting —<br />

college football games of all time. For the<br />

record in case anyone has forgotten, Ohio<br />

<strong>St</strong>ate won the national title game 31-24 in<br />

double overtime to complete a 14-0<br />

season, winningest in school history.<br />

While Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate was a decided<br />

3 <strong>St</strong>. C grads earned<br />

grid letters at OSU<br />

<strong>St</strong>even T. Moore, Class of 2000, who<br />

played on Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate University’s 2002<br />

national championship team, is the<br />

third <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> graduate to earn a<br />

varsity letter playing football for the<br />

OSU Buckeyes.<br />

The other <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> alumni who<br />

lettered for the grid Bucks were Dan<br />

Connor, Class of ’57, and Tom Vargo,<br />

Class of ’62. Both are attorneys.<br />

Connor earned his OSU letter in 1961<br />

and Vargo in 1965. Several other <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> grads played for the Buckeyes<br />

but didn’t earn varsity letters.<br />

Vargo, as like Moore, was an OSU<br />

grid walk-on. Vargo continued his<br />

involvement in football for many years<br />

after college. He was an assistant<br />

football coach at Watterson from 1968<br />

to 1981 and was <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> head<br />

football coach from 1982 to 1987.<br />

His 1983 team was the first Cardinal<br />

squad to qualify for the state high<br />

school playoffs.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> has a football connection<br />

with Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate University that<br />

dates back to 1926 when the Carolians<br />

fielded its first grid team. <strong>Charles</strong> V.<br />

“Flop” Gorrill, who played end for the<br />

Buckeyes in 1923-25, was the first <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> football coach.<br />

14<br />

underdog in the view of bookmakers, and<br />

nearly all sports analysts, soothsayers,<br />

and impartial fans, “we (the Buckeye team<br />

and coaches) always knew we were going<br />

to win,” Moore said. “I just felt we would<br />

win.”<br />

“Our goal was set last summer to go<br />

to the Fiesta Bowl,” Moore recalled. “We<br />

had it marked — Jan. 3, the Fiesta Bowl.<br />

We definitely thought we could win the<br />

national championship. We really worked<br />

hard for it.”<br />

Much credit for Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate’s success in<br />

reaching its ultimate goal of a national<br />

championship, Moore said, goes to the<br />

coaches. Head coach “Jim Tressel is a<br />

very good coach,” he said. “He always<br />

emphasized that we need to work hard to<br />

be a better person, not just a better<br />

player. After a game, he reminds us to<br />

remember who we are; he always emphasized<br />

family, faith, and school academics.”<br />

Moore also is impressed by the work<br />

and commitment of Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate’s assistant<br />

coaches. “They’re so determined — for<br />

example, watching game films for hours.”<br />

But to get to the Fiesta Bowl — let<br />

alone win the national title — the Buckeyes<br />

had to turn in a series of cliff-hanging<br />

victories that left their most dedicated<br />

fans breathless — and non-Buckeye fans<br />

skeptical of Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate’s capability.<br />

Among the close calls, Moore singled<br />

out the Purdue game “as<br />

one of the greatest<br />

thrills.” (Won 10-6 on a<br />

37-yard pass with less<br />

than two minutes left.)<br />

“And so was the Illinois<br />

game (won 23-16 in<br />

overtime).” And the<br />

clincher was the comefrom-behind<br />

14-9 win<br />

over archrival Michigan.<br />

A 2000 graduate of<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, Moore made<br />

the OSU football team as<br />

a walk-on. And that’s a<br />

tale in itself. After all,<br />

how in the heck does a<br />

relative unknown on a<br />

huge campus with 50,000-plus students<br />

win a spot on one of the nation’s bestknown<br />

college football teams? The short<br />

answer is determination and hard work.<br />

<strong>St</strong>even Moore’00 helped the Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate Buckeyes to their<br />

first national football title in 34 years, a perfect 14-0<br />

record, and Big 10 crown.<br />

back for the Cardinals. But a Buckeye<br />

football prospect he wasn’t.<br />

After starting classes at Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate on<br />

a full academic scholarship in the fall of<br />

2000, Moore said “I asked around what I<br />

needed to do to make the football team.” I<br />

was told (by another student) to improve<br />

my speed and build my strength.” Then 5-<br />

10 and 160 pounds — not exactly a football<br />

prospect, particularly at a Big 10 school —<br />

Moore began a rigorous body conditioning<br />

program.<br />

“I worked extremely<br />

hard,” he said. He<br />

improved his speed, built<br />

his strength, and now<br />

tips the scales at 180<br />

pounds. “It was a lot of<br />

work, but worth it,”<br />

Moore said. “It’s highlevel<br />

competition and<br />

great experience.” Moore<br />

waited until the spring<br />

quarter of his freshman<br />

year to try out — and<br />

make — the team.<br />

Last season — his<br />

junior year academically<br />

and second year as an<br />

OSU athlete — Moore<br />

earned a Buckeye letter jacket. He played<br />

cornerback for the Bucks during their<br />

championship season and is listed on the<br />

current <strong>2003</strong> squad in that position.<br />

Among his teammates are Andy<br />

Aaron Diehl ’03 this fall began<br />

work on a degree in jazz studies<br />

at the Julliard <strong>School</strong> in New<br />

York. He was recently invited<br />

onstage to perform with the Lincoln<br />

Center Jazz Orchestra in<br />

Indianapolis and won the first<br />

Hank Marr High <strong>School</strong> Jazz<br />

Competition, sponsored by the<br />

Columbus Jazz Orchestra.<br />

Last spring, when the Columbus<br />

Jazz Youth Orchestra traveled<br />

to New York for the “Essentially<br />

Ellington” competition at Lincoln<br />

Center, Aaron began a musical<br />

relationship with trumpet great<br />

Wynton Marsalis.<br />

“Aaron’s intelligent, has humility,<br />

and a requisite level of soul,<br />

“Marsalis said of Diehl. “And<br />

even more shocking are the<br />

things you can’t teach. It’s very<br />

rare in kids today with the decay<br />

of our culture: he has integrity.”<br />

Commenting further about<br />

Diehl, Marsalis said: “I don’t think<br />

there’s another piano player in<br />

the country who’s in high school<br />

who can play with two hands<br />

on stride piano. There are very<br />

few in the world who can do<br />

that.”<br />

This summer Aaron embarked on<br />

another musical journey: as a<br />

member of the Wynton Marsalis<br />

Septet touring Europe. I spoke<br />

with Aaron in July when the<br />

band was performing in Milan. I<br />

asked him what it was like to<br />

perform with the most influential<br />

jazz performer in the world. “It’s<br />

a very exciting opportunity,”<br />

Aaron responded. “At the same<br />

time it is a harsh, difficult learning<br />

experience.”<br />

Marsalis recently signed with<br />

jazz giant, Blue Note Records,<br />

and Aaron played for producer<br />

and recording executive Bruce<br />

Lundvall. “I’m not in any hurry to<br />

record,” Aaron commented. “I<br />

want to get a lot of stuff together.”<br />

deciding to cease the pursuit<br />

of professional acting, Bob<br />

had leading roles in several off-<br />

Broadway productions and featured<br />

roles with the Three Rivers<br />

Shakespeare Festival in<br />

Pittsburgh, and participated in<br />

developing a play slated for<br />

Broadway. His voiceover work<br />

Ian Hinz ’95 studied playwriting<br />

at Ohio University with <strong>Charles</strong><br />

Smith, the noted author of<br />

Blackstarline, which premiered<br />

at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago.<br />

While at O.U. he performed<br />

with the improv comedy<br />

troupe, Bodhisattva, and taught<br />

introductory acting classes. He<br />

was the production manager for<br />

the Ohio Valley Summer Theatre<br />

three years ago.<br />

Ian worked for the Ensemble<br />

Theater in Cleveland during the<br />

2000-2001 season as production<br />

stage and tour manager and<br />

assistant technical director. He<br />

played Kipple Patrick in Full Moon<br />

by Reynolds Price and The Youth<br />

Chorus leader in <strong>St</strong>eelbound by<br />

Allison Carey. He played the role<br />

of Dr. Anagnos in the <strong>2003</strong> Columbus<br />

Children’s Theatre production<br />

of The Miracle Worker.<br />

This summer he was the clubhouse<br />

manager for the Toledo<br />

Mudhens baseball team.<br />

Meanwhile, Ian is having preliminary<br />

talks with DOBAMA Theater<br />

in Cleveland about a workshop<br />

and possible production of<br />

a piece tentatively titled, The<br />

Sublime, and is evaluating other<br />

options in Columbus and Cleveland.<br />

Jon Skovron ’95 attended<br />

Carnegie Mellon University on an<br />

academic grant. While there,<br />

studied for a summer at the London<br />

<strong>School</strong> of Speech and<br />

Fiction writer Jon Skovron<br />

Drama, during which time he<br />

could be seen nightly as the lead<br />

in a small theater above a pub in<br />

a Neil Simon one-act entitled<br />

Fools. During his final year at<br />

CMU he was named, “Best Supporting<br />

Actor in a Comedy” by<br />

the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for<br />

his portrayal of Costard in<br />

Love’s Labours Lost.<br />

He also played Launcelot-Gobo<br />

in Merchant of Venice, and Bottom<br />

in A Midsummer Night’s<br />

Dream. (“I couldn’t seem to get<br />

away from Shakespeare’s<br />

clowns,” he said.) Ian graduated<br />

from in 1999 from CMU with<br />

a fine arts degree in theatre and<br />

a minor in history.<br />

He has since turned his attention<br />

to writing fiction. He has<br />

been published on Drexel<br />

University’s online journal, in the<br />

literary magazine, Lynx Eye, and<br />

most recently, on the awardwinning<br />

website, Chiaroscuro,<br />

produced by Leisure Books<br />

Press.<br />

Ian now is working for the Tony<br />

Award-winning Roundabout<br />

Theatre Company as a project<br />

coordinator for its production of<br />

Master Harold…and the Boys<br />

starring Danny Glover. He and<br />

his wife, Gretchen, live in Brooklyn<br />

and plan to move in October<br />

to Seattle. Meanwhile, they<br />

were looking forward to the arrival<br />

of their first child.<br />

Tom Mancuso ’62 lives in Los<br />

Angeles where he teaches English<br />

as a second language at<br />

the Art Center College of Design<br />

in Pasadena. He and alumnus<br />

Joey Jones (see below) were<br />

in the same Art Center computer<br />

class two years ago. “I didn’t tell<br />

him what year my class graduated.”<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> had an important role<br />

in forming his imagination, Tom<br />

said, adding: “I have two undergraduate<br />

degrees, one in<br />

English/pre-med and one in fine<br />

arts. I have two masters degrees,<br />

one in fine arts and one<br />

in classical civilizations; I don’t<br />

think any education of mine was<br />

as challenging or as exhilarating<br />

as the education — and the<br />

teachers — of <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.”<br />

Joey Jones ’92 started his professional<br />

life in architecture. He<br />

graduated from The Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate<br />

University in 1997 with a B.S. in<br />

in computer modeling. His<br />

experience in animating simu-<br />

lated walk throughs of his<br />

virtual spaces sparked his<br />

interest in film, and he continued<br />

his studies at Art<br />

Center College of Design<br />

in Pasadena, Calif.<br />

At the Art Center, he completed<br />

his M.S. in 2002<br />

with a thesis on character<br />

animation and film.<br />

While working on his masters<br />

in 2001, he received<br />

a nine-month grant in the<br />

entrepreneurial fellowship<br />

program from the National<br />

Science Foundation to<br />

conduct research on animation<br />

technology developed<br />

at the California Institute<br />

of Technology. The<br />

goal of that grant was to<br />

train scientists and artists<br />

on how to collaborate and<br />

develop ideas for the market<br />

place.<br />

While working on his masters,<br />

Joey co-directed and<br />

produced a short animation<br />

piece titled Little Red<br />

Plane. The short animation,<br />

completed in 2002,<br />

has been screened in<br />

more than 50 film and animation<br />

festivals in 15 different<br />

countries around<br />

the world, including the<br />

Cannes Film Festival as a<br />

part of Kodak’s Emerging<br />

Filmmaker Showcase.<br />

Little Red Plane is slated<br />

to be adapted into a<br />

children’s book next spring<br />

through ibooks publishing<br />

and Simon and Schuster.<br />

As a result of the overwhelming<br />

success of<br />

Little Red Plane, Joey and<br />

three other members of his<br />

crew founded an animation<br />

studio named<br />

Shadedbox Animations.<br />

David Anthony ’02 is developing<br />

his craft in filmmaking<br />

in New York City<br />

at The <strong>School</strong> of Visual<br />

Arts where he’s involved<br />

in numerous student and<br />

professional film projects,<br />

two of which were his<br />

original creations.<br />

After completing his first<br />

year on the dean’s list for<br />

academic performance,<br />

David decided to focus his<br />

talents on the school’s cinematography<br />

program.<br />

Through relationships with<br />

both SVA and New York<br />

University film students, he<br />

has begun to construct<br />

links that will be vital in this<br />

collaborative industry.<br />

With the craft of cinematography,<br />

as well as his<br />

skills of acting and writing,<br />

David plans to construct<br />

an environment in<br />

which he can produce and<br />

shoot his own masterpieces.<br />

I want to thank all of the<br />

men for sharing their experiences<br />

with me.<br />

Please remember that we<br />

all appreciate what you<br />

gave to <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> while<br />

you were here, and we will<br />

continue to follow your<br />

work. I hope other alums<br />

will get in touch with us<br />

and let us know what<br />

they’re doing.<br />

A special note to those of<br />

you who worked with me<br />

in the theater: Thank you<br />

for everything. You made<br />

each day enjoyable and<br />

truly brought joy to my life.<br />

You taught me how to<br />

know the face of right<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> grad spins madcap tale<br />

of ups and downs in entertainment world<br />

By Bernie DeLeo ’79<br />

Bernie DeLeo is trying to<br />

“bag the Hollywood<br />

Lottery.”<br />

18<br />

He cannot flatter,<br />

he, an honest mind<br />

and plain, he must<br />

speak truth!<br />

—King Lear, Act II,<br />

sc.2<br />

I graduated from<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> in 1979.<br />

While there I acted<br />

in six plays — three<br />

of them musicals —<br />

under Doug<br />

Montgomery’s<br />

direction — and got bitten by the bug.<br />

The Acting Bug. It was the only thing I<br />

wanted to do with my life. So I set out for<br />

Catholic University’s legendary drama<br />

department, which produced Jon Voight &<br />

Susan Sarandon, (notable Hollywood film<br />

stars) in Washington D.C. to become an<br />

actor.<br />

I had a ball, regularly pulled down<br />

leads, met the gal who I’d eventually<br />

marry, made forays into the professional<br />

theater community in DC — and wrote<br />

plays on the side to amuse myself when I<br />

wasn’t in a show. After graduating with a<br />

BFA (bachelor of fine arts) in acting<br />

(Worthless Degree #1), I hung around the<br />

nation’s capitol working at two respected<br />

theater companies — and I had two plays<br />

produced. Not bad for a 22-year old…or so<br />

I thought.<br />

Feeling I was ready for bigger and<br />

better, I went to Chicago; a booming<br />

theater town in the mid-80’s and promptly<br />

fell on my face. Didn’t act for a whole<br />

year, got very depressed, wrote more<br />

plays as therapy, and thought maybe the<br />

Good Lord was giving me a sign. I left<br />

acting and hightailed it back East to New<br />

Jersey’s Rutgers University for a masters<br />

in playwriting (Worthless Degree #2). In<br />

my second year of the program, I had a<br />

play move to New York City, win an off-off<br />

Broadway theater festival, got published<br />

and landed an agent. Heady times and I<br />

felt I was on my way. Next stop, Broadway,<br />

right?<br />

Three lean years later of word processing<br />

to pay exorbitant Manhattan rent<br />

with my now-wife, I had a play produced<br />

in 1992 on my old DC stomping grounds<br />

that gained me some national press — but<br />

not in a good way. (Entitled) Illegal<br />

Motion,” about corruption in college<br />

sports, it starred (former) NFL Hall of<br />

Fame Redskins (fullback) John Riggins,<br />

who actually did a decent job. Too bad my<br />

director fumbled the play way behind the<br />

line of scrimmage – but guess who got<br />

tarred and feathered for it in national<br />

papers?<br />

Waking up and seeing the hard road<br />

that theater would be — and with $200 in<br />

the bank and my first child on the way —<br />

I realized it was time to leave the stage<br />

and turn my abilities to actual moneymaking<br />

endeavors, namely TV & film.<br />

Luckily, months later, I hooked up with a<br />

Hollywood agent who just happened to<br />

represent a rising novelist by the name of<br />

John Grisham, right before The Firm<br />

(Grisham’s blockbuster book) exploded —<br />

and suddenly, I was working with a<br />

Player.<br />

Thus began much flying back and<br />

forth to the West Coast (on my dime, of<br />

course) and having meetings with all sorts<br />

of producers, studio executives toadies and<br />

Hollywood hangers-on. It was exciting at<br />

first to an East Coast neophyte; they liked<br />

my work! They said they were fans! But<br />

no one was buying my scripts, and you<br />

quickly learn that flattery is the coin of<br />

the realm in case you hit it big so everyone<br />

you’ve met can suck up to you quickly<br />

to get your next hit. I soon saw the truth<br />

behind Dorothy Parker’s famed observation<br />

about that whole world: “Hollywood is<br />

the only place where you can die from<br />

encouragement.”<br />

In the meantime Child #2 was born. I<br />

got a grunt job at HBO (NY) in the legal<br />

department to make ends meet and try to<br />

get on a career path there, while I read<br />

scripts for a film executive in the evenings.<br />

Somehow, I managed to find time<br />

to write four screenplays and five TV<br />

scripts — which didn’t sell — and I was<br />

thinking of throwing in the towel for good.<br />

I got a break, though, when a classmate<br />

from Catholic (University) got her<br />

own show and hired me on the writing<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>

staff. Life’s Work ran on ABC (television)<br />

during the 1996-97 season, and I commuted<br />

back and forth from NY to L.A. on<br />

weekends. Sound glamorous, being bicoastal?<br />

It ain’t, trust me. Okay, so there<br />

were some cool perks. I worked on the<br />

Disney studio lot, and would regularly see<br />

Tim Allen dining in the commissary and<br />

Ellen DeGeneres hiding in her trailer<br />

from her stalker.<br />

Bonnie Raitt told me I was talented<br />

— I could’ve been hit by a bus right on the<br />

spot and died happy. We worked in the<br />

office across a short plaza from Sally<br />

Field, and it was surreal. It was the most<br />

fun job I’ve ever held — and the most<br />

insane. I’ve never laughed as hard in a<br />

room full of comedy writers, but the hours<br />

were brutal: 10 am to 2 am almost every<br />

single day. Weekends too.<br />

I realized that the studio basically<br />

owns you, and it was good thing my family<br />

stayed in New York — because I’d never<br />

see them. I wondered if this was really<br />

the life for me, but the Fates decided for<br />

me. Our show didn’t come back the next<br />

year and I didn’t get hired for another<br />

show. So much for my sitcom career.<br />

I went back to HBO and had a film<br />

script gathering steam with producers<br />

attached, as well as the Emmy-winning<br />

director of Lonesome Dove. Alas, that<br />

project went down in flames too. With<br />

despair setting in once again, another<br />

lucky break came along. (Sensing a<br />

pattern here in the Entertainment Industry?<br />

Like big highs and low lows? Yes,<br />

“rollercoaster ride” would be a most apt<br />

description.)<br />

In late 1997, I met up with two investment<br />

bankers who wanted to make<br />

independent films — and I talked myself<br />

into a job as their creative head. Our<br />

company, Filbert <strong>St</strong>eps Productions,<br />

proceeded to make our first film, a steaming<br />

cow pie called Forever Fabulous,<br />

starring Jean Smart, Robert Wagner,<br />

Jorja Fox of CSI (Crime Scene Investigation)<br />

and Emily Procter (CSI: Miami and<br />

West Wing).<br />

We didn’t set out to make a flop — but<br />

the two L.A. producers we hired to show<br />

us the ropes turned out to be sharks<br />

(surprise surprise), made a mess, and left<br />

us holding the bag. Welcome to the movie<br />

business. (Should you happen to catch it<br />

on Lifetime Movie Network or you’re<br />

stuck watching it on an American Airlines<br />

flight, I beg your forgiveness.)<br />

God bless our investor who gave us<br />

another shot. We took all the harsh<br />

lessons we learned from the first film and<br />

made a winner on the second round. Two<br />

Family House proceeded to win the<br />

Audience Award at the Sundance Film<br />

Festival in 2000 and put us on the map.<br />

And yes, being at Sundance with a film in<br />

play was just way cool, I have to admit.<br />

The film was released in the fall of 2000<br />

by Lions Gate Films and wound up on a<br />

number of year-end “best film” lists (and<br />

it’s available at most major video stores<br />

and on Amazon.com, he plugged shamelessly).<br />

Yet despite having a critical hit on<br />

our hands, we lost money on that film too.<br />

My partners decided we’d need to make<br />

films with “other people’s money”, not<br />

theirs. Wouldn’t you know it — this new<br />

business plan coincided with the stock<br />

market tanking and the economy’s crash?<br />

— and there was no “other people’s<br />

money” left to fund something as frivolous<br />

as indie films.<br />

We’ve spent the past three years<br />

scrounging for funds, trying to attach<br />

stars to scripts, and it’s been a tough road.<br />

On the side though, a budding Australian<br />

director in Sydney got his hands on a<br />

Bonnie Raitt told me I was<br />

talented — I could’ve<br />

been hit by a bus right on<br />

the spot and died happy.<br />

We worked in the office<br />

across a short plaza from<br />

Sally Field, and it was surreal.<br />

It was the most fun<br />

job I’ve ever held — and<br />

the most insane.<br />

screenplay of mine and loved it. We<br />

partnered up and spent three years<br />

chasing funding which took us to L.A.,<br />

London, and Milan. But after we exhausted<br />

all possibilities, the guy decided to<br />

shoot it mega-cheap with a bank loan —<br />

using his house as collateral. Yes, it’s a<br />

crazy business.<br />

Temporarily Yours, a romantic comedy<br />

and my first filmed script, shot in<br />

Sydney last summer. I was there to coproduce<br />

and take on a small role, and had<br />

the time of my life. I looked around the<br />

set one night, which overlooked Sydney<br />

Harbor under the stars, and thought,<br />

“This is just THE COOLEST DAMN<br />


And that’s the addiction of the entertainment<br />

industry — you get one taste,<br />

and you want it again and again. Despite<br />

unemployment, empty bank accounts, no<br />

security, a bleak-look future, there’s<br />

nothing like being on a stage or movie set<br />

and realizing your dreams. A year later,<br />

the film still isn’t finished — and was<br />

rejected in rough form by a half dozen<br />

major film festivals. The inevitable<br />

comedowns always suck. But you keep<br />

plugging away.<br />

Last year, my wife and I decided it<br />

was time to get out of New York and give<br />

our kids a normal suburban life, and we<br />

moved back to Washington D.C. (where<br />

we had met). We live in suburban Virginia<br />

with our two kids, and couldn’t be<br />

happier in a house with a yard and SPACE<br />

after 16 years in cramped quarters in<br />

Manhattan.<br />

The highs and lows continue daily,<br />

and I constantly think about walking away<br />

to something more stable and lucrative.<br />

But another break comes along, and you<br />

get back on the ride. I continue to write,<br />

although I’m on my fourth set of agents<br />

and getting tired of the runaround you get<br />

as a lowly screenwriter.<br />

I’ve had Danny Aiello, Melanie<br />

Griffith, and Reba McEntire interested in<br />

projects of mine, which all fizzled. I came<br />

close with a script last year that attached<br />

(actor) Pierce Brosnan as the male lead —<br />

but still, the studios said no. That one<br />

really hurt. I’m almost done with Screenplay<br />

#11, and hope this one finally bags<br />

the Hollywood Lottery.<br />

Things have picked up at our little<br />

film company and we just might get to<br />

make another movie after all. If that<br />

doesn’t work out? Well, I’ve three novels<br />

swirling in my head — on to another<br />

challenge. It’s a harrowing yet exhilarating<br />

business I jumped into after my happy<br />

days in the plays at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>. It’s<br />

DEFINITELY not for the faint of heart. If<br />

I could go back in time to my high school<br />

self and tell him to do something more<br />

practical with his life, and spare him much<br />

heartache, despair and penury, I just<br />

might. But High <strong>School</strong> Me would never<br />

listen.<br />

A few things broke this week on the<br />

producing front, and heck, we might just<br />

get to make another movie again. That’s<br />

the hard part about the Biz – constant ups<br />

and down that can whipsaw your emotions<br />

& spirits. WHAT DID YOU GET ME<br />


Bernie DeLeo ’79 has seen and done it<br />

all in the artistic world. I felt that Bernie’s<br />

observations about a life in the arts<br />

reflected what so many of us have gone<br />

through. I know that my venture into<br />

professional theatre was a constant<br />

rollercoaster of emotion, and many of the<br />

men I spoke with reiterate that sentiment.<br />

Bernie, thanks for sharing your life with<br />

us. — Doug Montgomery<br />

Alumni Association<br />

President’s Column<br />

The <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

Alumni Association<br />

is an organization<br />

that depends on<br />

volunteers to help<br />

organize and<br />

conduct events at<br />

alumni functions.<br />

Without your help,<br />

Marion Smithberger ’72<br />

we accomplish a<br />

little less than we<br />

could using your talents and energies.<br />

When asked to volunteer to do something,<br />

the answer often is — in unison —<br />

“I’d love to but I’m so busy...” When we<br />

ask for volunteers from the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

Alumni Association, it’s an opportunity to<br />

renew old friendships, to make some new<br />

ones, and have some fun. Doesn’t that<br />

sound a lot better than “we need you to<br />

organize a golf outing?” It’s important how<br />

we ask.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> alumni are leaders in<br />

almost every field of endeavor. There are<br />

priests, doctors, and leaders in business,<br />

politics, and other endeavors. A strong<br />

alumni association helps you to stay<br />

connected with other graduates and help<br />

one another. We are proud of you, and we<br />

hope that you are proud of us.<br />

Even though we are a fledgling group,<br />

our potential is huge. Our present volunteers<br />

are helping to build what we hope<br />

will some day be one of <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>’ most<br />

significant assets. We want to be around<br />

to help organize alumni events and<br />

maintain the tie through which those<br />

alums can stay connected to the school<br />

and with each other.<br />

Association president-elect Fr. Fred<br />

Loyd ’62 this year began offering Mass on<br />

First Fridays at 7:30 am in Mother of<br />

Mercy Chapel, which is followed by a<br />

friendly session of coffee and goodies. We<br />

welcome all alums and their families, as<br />

well as faculty and students.<br />

This Mass sometimes is a starting<br />

point for other celebrations. A recent one<br />

was when we honored the Bell family for<br />

their Campaign generosity by blessing the<br />

new “Cardinal Circle” monument at the<br />

driveway curve in front of the school’s<br />

main entrance. We also pray for our<br />

alums serving in the armed services and<br />

offer other special petitions. Please join us<br />

if you can but even if you cannot, take a<br />

moment wherever you are at 7:30 on each<br />

Friday to pray with our <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> family.<br />

Looking ahead, a big event is the<br />

homecoming football game against<br />

DeSales on Friday, Sept. 26. The alumni<br />

association will serve as host to a pregame<br />

cookout and post-game pizza party.<br />

Bob Selhorst ’74 makes sure that no on<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>

leaves hungry. (For those of you who have<br />

an aspiring son or grandson who is thinking<br />

about attending <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, this is a<br />

good event to bring them.) Festivities<br />

begin at 6 p.m. The game is at 7:30.<br />

Our Alumni Association is open to all<br />

grads. We welcome you to be a part of it<br />

or pass along any ideas for our group to<br />

consider. We would love to hear from<br />

you. We’re all part of this family, so don’t<br />

linger behind. You are welcome to contact<br />

me at marion@cbalaw.org to join.<br />

‘Open’ course to host<br />

Alumni Outing<br />

You’re invited to ‘First<br />

Friday’ Mass<br />

The <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Alumni Association has<br />

inaugurated a monthly event that feeds<br />

the soul, and, incidentally, the stomach as<br />

well. Mass is held in Mother of Mercy<br />

Chapel at 7:30 a.m. every first Friday, and<br />

is meant to bring together alumni, students,<br />

faculty, and friends. Alumni president<br />

Marion Smithberger ’72 regards first<br />

Friday Mass as a “chance to share the<br />

continuing journey of religious and<br />

spiritual growth in the presence of the <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> community.”<br />

Father Fred Loyd ’62 spearheaded the<br />

idea and has served as celebrant since the<br />

first morning Mass in April. Special<br />

prayers are made on behalf of the many<br />

friends, graduates, and benefactors of <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> who can’t be there in person,<br />

especially those serving in the armed<br />

forces and supporting services. Camaraderie<br />

and a light breakfast follow afterwards<br />

in the Alumni and Development Office’s<br />

conference room. We look forward to<br />

seeing you there!<br />

<strong>St</strong>ill another coaching<br />

award for legendary Jack<br />

Ryan<br />

With more than<br />

350 athletes,<br />

athletic directors,<br />

coaches, and<br />

friends on hand,<br />

former <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

and Hartley head<br />

coach Jack Ryan<br />

was posthumously<br />

awarded the<br />

inaugural High<br />

<strong>School</strong> Coaches<br />

Award by the<br />

Columbus Chapter<br />

of the National Football Foundation and<br />

College Hall of Fame. The award was<br />

given at the group’s annual scholarathlete<br />

awards banquet last February 11.<br />

It’s the latest in a long string of<br />

awards bestowed on legendary Jack Ryan,<br />

one of Central Ohio’s most successful,<br />

beloved — and entertaining — coaches.<br />

“You think about the countless numbers<br />

of people he influenced over the<br />

years, and I think (Jack Ryan) was an easy<br />

choice,” said Larry Larson, a well-known<br />

Columbus sports columnist and radio<br />

personality. It was Larson who recommended<br />

that Ryan should receive the<br />

organization’s first coach’s award.<br />

Chapter president Mark <strong>St</strong>ier, a<br />

linebacker for the 1968 national champion<br />

Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate Buckeyes, said the award will<br />

be presented annually to a former Central<br />

Ohio high school football coach who was<br />

devoted to the betterment of the game<br />

and the young men who competed under<br />

his leadership.<br />

<strong>St</strong>ier said the award recognizes the<br />

beneficial influence a coach can have on<br />

young players, both while playing during a<br />

season, and more importantly afterwards<br />

when applying lessons to leadership,<br />

commitment, teamwork, honor, and<br />

integrity.<br />

Larson, the “dean of high school<br />

sports,” said Ryan was someone all<br />

coaches in all sports admired, respected,<br />

and looked up to. “The fact that he is in<br />

the (high school) football, baseball, and<br />

basketball Hall of Fame speaks for his<br />

coaching; but the fact that he was in<br />

education for 50 years speaks to the other<br />

side of him.”<br />

Jack Ryan began his coaching career<br />

in 1936 as a part-time reserve basketball<br />

coach at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> while working on his<br />

degree at The Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate University. He<br />

was hired full-time in 1938 as the school’s<br />

only lay teacher and head varsity cage<br />

coach. Ryan soon became head coach for<br />

football and baseball, too, and compiled a<br />

Alumni News<br />

Jack Ryan, continued<br />

distinguished record in all three sports<br />

during a 26-year career at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.<br />

He left <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> in 1964, a year<br />

before the school was scheduled to convert<br />

to a seminary prep and discontinue its<br />

regular sports program. Hartley High<br />

hired Ryan as a teacher and head football<br />

and baseball coach. He retired in 1992<br />

and died in 1996.<br />

Ryan was inducted into the National<br />

High <strong>School</strong> Sports Hall of Fame in Palm<br />

Desert, Calif. in 1994.<br />

Summer Reunions<br />

The 60-year class reunion was celebrated<br />

Thursday, July 10. Activities got rolling<br />

with a tour of the renovated campus and<br />

countless discussions on how things<br />

looked“in our days.” Graduates and their<br />

guests then attended Mass in the Mother<br />

their own: Msgr. James Hanley. The<br />

group traveled over to the T.A.T. Restaurant<br />

to meet up with more of their classmates<br />

for a cocktail reception and dinner.<br />

Msgr. Hanley, the reunion’s organizer,<br />

displayed some of his high school memorabilia.<br />

One item was his diploma, which<br />

lists the entire faculty on one side and the<br />

senior class roster on the other. Even six<br />

decades after graduating, some classmates<br />

continue to meet at this restaurant on a<br />

monthly basis! What could be a better<br />

testament to the firm bonds that <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> men form?<br />

school principal Dominic Cavello. That<br />

evening Bob Corna unveiled a conceptual<br />

model for enclosing the school’s rear<br />

courtyard to form a commons and fine<br />

arts center beneath; that really captured<br />

the group’s attention. Bob Walter served<br />

as host for the Saturday night social at his<br />

home; graduates of <strong>St</strong>. Mary’s of the<br />

Springs and Aquinas’ classes of ’63 were<br />

<strong>St</strong>arts as part-timer, rises to Columbus Dispatch sports editor<br />

By Louis V. Fabro ’49<br />

Dispatch sports editor<br />

Ray <strong>St</strong>ein ’77<br />

Urged on by Mark<br />

Naegele, a close friend<br />

and fellow 1977 <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> graduate, Ray<br />

<strong>St</strong>ein applied 23 years<br />

ago for a part-time<br />

Friday night job of<br />

taking phoned-in sports<br />

scores, which Mark was<br />

doing then at The<br />

Columbus Dispatch.<br />

Mark recalled that<br />

Ray wasn’t sure what he<br />

wanted to do at that<br />

time. I told him: “You<br />

would be perfect for this<br />

kind of work. You’re good with details, dealing<br />

with people, and have a good memory.”<br />

Ray applied and was hired as a part-timer.<br />

Today, Ray is sports editor of the Dispatch,<br />

one of the largest metropolitan newspapers in the<br />

United <strong>St</strong>ates. He has a staff of some 35 reporters,<br />

copyeditors, and columnists, plus part-time people<br />

who, as Ray once did, answer the phone from<br />

callers reporting high school sports scores.<br />

“I found my calling,” Ray said about his entry<br />

job. Soon after he began volunteering to cover<br />

various sports events for the newspaper. Meanwhile<br />

he attended The Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate University<br />

where he took several journalism courses.<br />

Eventually becoming a full-time member of the<br />

sports staff, Ray, according to the Dispatch announcement<br />

about his promotion to sports editor,<br />

“quickly worked his way up the ranks.” His assignments<br />

included everything from high school sports<br />

coverage to Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate football. He worked as a<br />

copyeditor and in 1995 was promoted to assistant<br />

sports editor.<br />

Asked about Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate football — which is<br />

typically the No. 1 sports topic, a feverish one, in<br />

Central Ohio — Ray said “it’s the engine that<br />

drives sports in Columbus and around the state.<br />

For that matter, it’s the king of the sports world, at<br />

least, here in Columbus.” He added: “It won’t<br />

change — at least not in my lifetime.”<br />

However, he admitted, “the Central Ohio<br />

sports landscape has changed considerably. We<br />

have a much larger smorgasbord of sports. There<br />

is room for diversity of interests.”<br />

One aspect of being sports editor that appeals<br />

to Ray is dealing with people. “Sports is an opinion<br />

activity,” Ray said, and, of course, there’s no<br />

shortage of opinions among sports fans. “I really<br />

enjoy the interaction with readers.” That would<br />

include the numerous phone inquiries and commentaries<br />

he receives and his weekly Sunday<br />

letters column. “If I can please four out of ten<br />

readers, that’s good,” he said.<br />

Ray is the oldest of four brothers. Others<br />

include Doug, Class of ’78, who heads up the<br />

development department at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, and Tim<br />

and Greg, who attended other high schools. Ray is<br />

married to Rita Price, a Dispatch reporter, and<br />

has two sons, Benjamin, 11, and Tim, 3.<br />

Mark Naegele, who steered Ray to his sports<br />

writing, earned a journalism degree at Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate<br />

in 1982. Thanks to a tip from Ray about a job<br />

opening at the Newark Advocate, Mark was hired<br />

by that newspaper in 1984 and a year later became<br />

sports editor.<br />

He moved on to the Mansfield News Journal<br />

in 1988 and the following year again became sports<br />

editor. Mark joined the Lima Citizen (many<br />

journalists are inclined to move about) in 1992 and<br />

hearing from Ray about an opening at the Dispatch,<br />

he returned to that newspaper the following<br />

year. He’s a copyeditor in that newspaper’s Accent<br />

department.<br />

Alumni Notes<br />

Genetic research<br />

Christopher Alvarez-Breckenridge ’01 studies under the<br />

direction of Dr. Charis Eng, a world-class geneticist who<br />

directs the human cancer genetics program at the<br />

university’s Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and<br />

Richard J. Solove Research Institute. Photo courtesy<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> graduate wins<br />

high acclaim at Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate<br />

Christopher Alvarez-Breckenridge’s<br />

advisor at Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate University refers to<br />

her prize pupil as “extraordinary — one<br />

that comes once in 10 years.” Alvarez-<br />

Breckenridge, a 2001 graduate of <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>, is enrolled in the university’s<br />

honors program and is pursuing degrees<br />

in molecular genetics and in classics.<br />

Earlier this year he was presented the<br />

option of enrolling early in the College of<br />

Medicine’s M.D./Ph.D. program but chose<br />

instead to savor the moment of his undergraduate<br />

experience.<br />

“My plan has been to finish my biology<br />

prerequisites this year and take all<br />

graduate-level molecular genetic classes<br />

to solidify my knowledge that apply to<br />

research,” he said. “I can prepare myself<br />

better for med school by growing my base<br />

of knowledge in genetics. My fourth year<br />

will be focused on classics.” Alvarez-<br />

Breckenridge also joined a fraternity,<br />

Sigma Phi Epsilon, which has exposed him<br />

to a “balanced view” of college life.<br />

Alvarez-Breckenridge expects to reach<br />

senior standing early — sometime this<br />

year — and to graduate in 2005. He plans<br />

to enter medical school, a goal he first set<br />

when in the eighth grade during a family<br />

trip to Lourdes, France. “I felt a calling to<br />

become a doctor,” he said. “I want to make<br />

a significant impact on people’s lives.”<br />

And Alvarez-Breckenridge is preparing<br />

to do just that by working under the<br />

direction of Dr. Charis Eng, a world-class<br />

geneticist who directs the human cancer<br />

genetics program at Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate’s acclaimed<br />

Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital<br />

and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.<br />

Alvarez-Breckenridge was introduced to<br />

Dr. Eng during his junior year at <strong>St</strong>.<br />

30<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> — an introduction made possible<br />

by his mother, Carmen, who was visiting<br />

with an Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate colleague. “In life, you<br />

have multiple mentors,” Alvarez-<br />

Breckenridge said. “I view a lot of my<br />

teachers at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> as mentors and<br />

friends of mine. I turn to them for help<br />

and guidance.” He said his mentor, Dr.<br />

Eng, is always there for support and he<br />

often seeks her advice. “She writes letters<br />

of recommendation for me and speaks on<br />

my behalf in whatever capacity she can,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Christopher is extremely intelligent<br />

and already is showing the signs of some<br />

independent scientific thought,” Dr. Eng<br />

said. “Just as importantly, he is personable<br />

and is a real team player. I predict<br />

that he will climb to the highest echelons<br />

of academia in time, given the proper<br />

mentorship, which I have pledged to him,”<br />

she said.<br />

Crediting his parents, Carmen and<br />

David, for always providing him the best<br />

education possible, Alvarez-Breckenridge<br />

said higher education brought his parents<br />

together. “They met as students at the<br />

Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.”<br />

“My mother,” he added, “emigrated<br />

from Cuba in 1962 and earned her masters<br />

at OSU. She taught liturgical music<br />

at the Pontifical College Josephinum and<br />

for the past 25 years has been employed at<br />

Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate in Hispanic <strong>St</strong>udent Services.<br />

She is also choir director at <strong>St</strong>. Michael<br />

Church in Worthington.<br />

David Breckenridge, Alvarez-<br />

Breckenridge’s father, is a lieutenant<br />

colonel in the U.S. Air Force and a recruiter<br />

for that service. He visits <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> several times a year to talk to<br />

students interested in the Air Force<br />

Academy and careers as an officer. He<br />

previously served as director of admissions<br />

for OSU Newark.<br />

Alvarez-Breckenridge said he first<br />

became interested in genetics through his<br />

advanced placement biology class at <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>. He achieved the highest marks<br />

in his senior class and graduated with a<br />

4.29 GPA. In addition to being named an<br />

advance placement distinguished scholar,<br />

Alvarez-Breckenridge was an officer in<br />

student council and the National Honor<br />

Society and played baseball. He founded<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Science Club under the<br />

direction of <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> science teacher,<br />

Mike Arends, and initiated the Club’s<br />

scholarship fund by donating $500, which<br />

was matched by an anonymous member of<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Advisory Board.<br />

His service at Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate includes<br />

serving as the current president of Mir-<br />

rors, the sophomore honorary society,<br />

which has adopted a service project to<br />

raise money for cancer research at The<br />

James. Alvarez-Breckenridge last year<br />

was inducted into Helix, the honors<br />

society for the biological sciences, and is a<br />

<strong>2003</strong> Goldwater Scholarship nominee. As<br />

her understudy makes progress in the lab<br />

and classroom, Dr. Eng, the OSU cancer<br />

genetics scientist, has taken note of all<br />

these achievements and concludes,<br />

“Christopher is an ideal role model for<br />

all.”<br />

Grad conquers trail<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> graduate Brian Barnhart ’00<br />

successfully finished his solo walk of the<br />

Appalachian Trail Oct. 27, 2002 as his<br />

family and girlfriend cheered his finish.<br />

“Lots of cheers, tears, photos, and half an<br />

apple pie capped my mountain-top celebration,”<br />

he said. Barnhart hiked 2,168 miles<br />

in 122 days from Maine to Georgia.<br />

Brian said that many people have<br />

asked him what was his favorite part of<br />

the trail. “I can think of areas in every<br />

one of the 14 states through which I<br />

walked,” he replied, “and remember views<br />

that can take one’s breath away. I certainly<br />

have a list of places to which I will<br />

return in the future, but the whole trail<br />

itself is amazing. The scenery and the<br />

people I met along the way created an<br />

experience of a lifetime that I would<br />

certainly recommend to others.”<br />

Brian Barnhart ’00 displays a <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> banner on<br />

the Appalachian Trail which he hiked.<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> grad played on OSU’s national title grid team—continued from page 14<br />

Jason Bond, a graduate of Watterson. And one of the assistant<br />

coaches also is a former Central Catholic League athlete. He’s<br />

Luke Fickell, a DeSales graduate and former all-American who<br />

holds the record for the most consecutive starts as a Buckeye<br />

football player.<br />

The son of Sue and John Moore, <strong>St</strong>even has a sister, Jayme,<br />

who’s a 1994 graduate of Hartley High <strong>School</strong>. She earned a<br />

degree at Notre Dame University in biology and business in 1998<br />

and, as an honor student in OSU’s College of Law, earned her<br />

degree last June. She now works for a Columbus law firm.<br />

A graduate of Columbus Academy Grade <strong>School</strong>, Moore said<br />

he decided to enroll at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> because he felt “it was time<br />

for a change.” He added: “<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> prepared me well for<br />

college. I never have any problem keeping up or keeping ahead<br />

(in the classroom) at Ohio <strong>St</strong>ate.”<br />

Moore is majoring in finance and aviation. He’s been a flying<br />

enthusiast since his grade school years. He began flying in the<br />

eighth grade and flying solo when he was 16. He continues to<br />

pilot planes in the early morning hours.<br />

Commenting about his experience as an OSU football player,<br />

Moore said “running out of the tunnel onto the Ohio <strong>St</strong>adium<br />

field before the game is one of the greatest feelings you can<br />

have.” He added: “You really don’t notice the crowd (of 100,000-<br />

plus fans) much except when they get really loud at crucial<br />

times.” And there certainly were plenty of those heart-stopping<br />

occasions during the nerve-racking 2002 season.<br />

Newest priest in diocese recounts road to ordination<br />

J<br />

onathan F. Wilson ’92 became the<br />

Columbus Diocese’s newest priest<br />

last May 31 when he was ordained<br />

in <strong>St</strong>. Joseph Cathedral by Bishop James<br />

A. Griffin. He continues a long line of<br />

nearly 300 priests who graduated from <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong> and/or the<br />

former <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> College.<br />

Commenting about his high school<br />

years, Wilson said: “At <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> there<br />

was the feeling of being part of a tradition<br />

that had preceded me and I was now<br />

becoming part of. I was challenged to be<br />

my best and . . . I was encouraged to<br />

achieve excellence in every respect.”<br />

Wilson did very well academically and<br />

was offered many scholarship awards. He<br />

Lunch guest<br />

Fr. Jonathan Wilson ’92 was the guest speaker at the<br />

Catholic Men’s luncheon in the Cavello Center last May,<br />

three weeks before his ordination.<br />

32<br />

was a member of the National Honor<br />

Society and named a National Merit<br />

Finalist. He was involved with the<br />

Diocesan Youth Council, participated in<br />

athletics all four of his years at <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>, and was elected senior class vicepresident.<br />

“It was pretty obvious that he was<br />

definitely one of the leaders of our class,”<br />

said Michael Harlow ’92, a friend of<br />

Wilson’s at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>. “The question was<br />

where would he apply those leadership<br />

skills?”<br />

At the time, Wilson didn’t know<br />

either. “Looking back to high school,”<br />

Wilson said, “I experienced a struggle to<br />

put Christ first. I’m grateful that during<br />

those times I had . . . positive influences<br />

in my life, so that by the time I left <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> I was seeking to do God’s will in<br />

my life.”<br />

Wilson said he had examples of good<br />

Catholic priests at <strong>St</strong>. Agatha where he<br />

went to grade school. At <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, he<br />

said, “I had the privilege of having two<br />

priests, Fr. Bennett (Thomas M.) and<br />

Monz (Msgr. F.Thomas Gallen ’40), both of<br />

whom witnessed to me another side of the<br />

priesthood that I had not seen growing<br />

up.”<br />

In his customary humble manner,<br />

Gallen expressed surprise at Wilson’s<br />

comments. “Evidently I had more of an<br />

effect on his life than I knew,” he said.<br />

Wilson kept in touch with Gallen during<br />

his years in the seminary. “I always<br />

prayed that he would go into the priesthood,”<br />

Gallen said, “because I thought that<br />

was his intention when he was at <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>.”<br />

The experience in high school of<br />

having two priests who were so very well<br />

respected by his classmates influenced<br />

Wilson’s feelings about the priesthood as a<br />

career choice. “But the culture of the<br />

world,” Wilson admitted, “does not encourage<br />

following a career to the priesthood,<br />

and boys being boys, it wasn’t always easy<br />

at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>,” he said.<br />

Cathedral last May. (Photo courtesy of The Catholic<br />

Times photographer Ken Snow).<br />

But Wilson’s deep faith was evident to<br />

Harlow. “He had an amazing gift,” Harlow<br />

said. He was able to talk openly about his<br />

faith and to speak to other high school<br />

students who were struggling with their<br />

faith.” He discussed his faith not only at<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, but at other schools, too.<br />

As a member of the Diocesan Youth<br />

Council his junior and senior years,<br />

Wilson helped organize youth rallies,<br />

participated in Christian leadership<br />

conferences, and was a youth group leader<br />

on many retreats with students from<br />

around the state.<br />

Wilson credits those experiences for<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>Preparatory</strong> <strong>School</strong>

helping guide him. “One must want to do<br />

God’s will before you can consider a<br />

vocation,” he said. “I experienced in those<br />

moments an invitation from the Lord to<br />

give more of myself, to be more open to<br />

what his will in my life might be.”<br />

His classmates, meanwhile, considered<br />

him their spiritual leader — the most<br />

likely to pursue the priesthood. Wilson,<br />

however, still wasn’t sure the priesthood<br />

was his calling. But he did know he was<br />

called to serve Christ.<br />

Leaving <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, Wilson enrolled<br />

at Franciscan University in <strong>St</strong>eubenville,<br />

Ohio, a Catholic school of 2,000 students.<br />

He didn’t choose the school to become a<br />

priest, Wilson said, but he knew that such<br />

a possibility existed. It seemed to be a<br />

place “where regardless of what vocation<br />

he chose, it was where he could grow his<br />

Catholic faith.”<br />

When he graduated from Franciscan<br />

University in 1996, Wilson was still<br />

undecided on whether to pursue a priestly<br />

vocation. He moved to West Virginia to<br />

help with a carpeting business in which<br />

his father had invested. A short time later<br />

he’d become the outlet manager and<br />

worked in that position for the rest of the<br />

year. Finally, he got the call.<br />

He had been involved in a parish<br />

helping teach high school CCD classes and<br />

working with a youth group he started.<br />

That was when things came together for<br />

him.<br />

“I realized my real love and desire was<br />

to serve the Lord as a priest,” he said.<br />

Going all the way back to high school I<br />

had the belief that God had a will for my<br />

life, and I was seeking to know what that<br />

life was.” And that was as a priest in the<br />

Catholic Church.<br />

Wilson said he had a sense that he<br />

was called to the priesthood as far back as<br />

high school, but it was just a vague sense.<br />

He felt it in college sometimes, but other<br />

times he didn’t. But it was where everything<br />

in his life was pointing.<br />

Deciding to answer the call, Wilson<br />

attended the Pontificia Università della<br />

Santa Croce, in Rome, Italy from 1997 to<br />

1998. He continued his studies at <strong>St</strong>. John<br />

Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver<br />

from fall of 1999 to the spring of 2000. He<br />

went on to the Pontifical College<br />

Josephinum where he graduated summa<br />

cum laude this year from the <strong>School</strong> of<br />

Theology with a masters degree in theology.<br />

Looking back to his graduation at<br />

Franciscan, Wilson noted that among his<br />

group of close friends at that school, eight<br />

eventually became religious sisters and<br />

eight became priests. He noted gleefully<br />

that one of his friends was to be ordained<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> classmate’s illness was heroic<br />

for priest and school<br />

A seminal event for Wilson’s <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

class was the diagnosis of cancer their<br />

classmate Frank Dury received during<br />

their sophomore year. “Frank’s illness<br />

allowed Jonathan to show some of us<br />

where his talents were when it came to<br />

matters of faith,” classmate Michael<br />

Harlow said. “Our class’ experience and<br />

the struggle we went<br />

through while one of our<br />

classmates was slowly dying<br />

was a lot easier to handle<br />

with Jonathan around.”<br />

Wilson and Dury had<br />

attended school together<br />

since they started first<br />

grade at <strong>St</strong>. Agatha. Wilson<br />

led several rosary devotions<br />

during Dury’s battle and<br />

counseled many classmates<br />

throughout his ordeal.<br />

Frank M. Dury<br />

Frank Dury passed away<br />

their junior year and was remembered<br />

at commencement with the presentation<br />

of an honorary diploma and inclusion in<br />

the class graduation picture.<br />

“I had been his classmate for 11<br />

years,” Wilson said. “He gave me a<br />

truly heroic witness of acceptance in his<br />

battle with leukemia.” Despite his<br />

terrible illness and weakened condition,<br />

Dury occasionally attended class and<br />

continued his studies at home.<br />

It was at the end of that battle when<br />

Wilson realized that although learning<br />

was important, there was a family<br />

dimension to the school. It was a community,<br />

and that fact shone through<br />

brightly. The way the faculty and staff<br />

reacted to Dury’s illness, and later to his<br />

death, it was evident to Wilson “that <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> was a special place.”<br />

The scene has been described many<br />

times, but never without evoking teary<br />

eyes and a heavy heart: That day in mid-<br />

April 1991 that Dury left <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> for<br />

the last time. Principal Dominic Cavello<br />

surprised Dury by having the entire<br />

school line the front driveway to honor<br />

him. As he was driven away for treatments<br />

in Minneapolis, Dury was cheered<br />

by his schoolmates as his van slowly<br />

made its way to Broad <strong>St</strong>reet. He was a<br />

true fighter as evidenced by his determination<br />

to beat his illness and his promise<br />

to return to <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>. He was<br />

never able to fulfill that promise, but his<br />

courage in fighting his affliction was,<br />

and remains, an inspiration to all.<br />

Dury’s mother, Joan, was truly<br />

touched by the spectacle. She recalled<br />

the event as more of a salute than a<br />

farewell. “It was an overwhelming feeling<br />

of love and support from the faculty and<br />

students. I’ve never felt so much love,”<br />

she said. Frank Dury passed away on May<br />

24, 1991.<br />

In June, the executive committee of<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> National Honor Society<br />

recommended the Borromean<br />

Chapter of NHS rename its<br />

annual scholarship award The<br />

Francis Michael Dury National<br />

Honor Society Scholarship at<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>. The fund was<br />

established as part of the <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> Endowment in May<br />

1992. The award is given<br />

annually to a student who has<br />

earned a 3.5 GPA. and who<br />

through his character, leadership<br />

and service is working to<br />

better himself and <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>.”<br />

“Looking back, it was a powerful<br />

experience of community,” Wilson said.<br />

“It was evident to me that the teachers<br />

really cared about my friend, Frank, and<br />

his friends and family. And I began to<br />

realize it was much more than just about<br />

learning. I’m grateful for the family<br />

commitment or attitude they (teachers<br />

and staff) had toward the students, especially<br />

the way they helped my friend when<br />

he was sick.”<br />

Wilson feels that the Lord used that<br />

tragedy to call him to be responsible for<br />

his own life, and that each day was not a<br />

given.<br />

A day of fun<br />

With Dominic Cavello’s permission a group of friends<br />

(from left, Josh Hathaway, Andy Halk, Jonathan Wilson,<br />

Frank, and Andy Garabis) skipped school on April 15,<br />

1991. Using the premise of the movie “Ferris Bueller’s<br />

Day Off”, they visited a museum and attended a<br />

Cleveland Indians baseball game on their day of<br />

adventure.<br />


<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> classmate’s illness was heroic for priest and<br />

school—continued from page 33<br />

in <strong>St</strong>. Patrick Cathedral in New York and<br />

another by the Holy Father in Rome. By<br />

comparison his ordination was to be in<br />

downtown Columbus at <strong>St</strong>. Joseph Cathedral.<br />

The day after his ordination, he<br />

celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving at his<br />

home parish of <strong>St</strong>. Agatha. Music for the<br />

ceremony was provided by a choir, a<br />

pianist, harpist, and soprano soloist. “It<br />

was simply gorgeous,” said Msgr. Gallen,<br />

who taught music at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> for many<br />

years. “There must have been 30 priests<br />

and deacons there (to concelebrate) and<br />

the Church was filled.”<br />

Jonathan’s parents, <strong>Charles</strong> and<br />

JoAnn Wilson of Columbus, gave their son<br />

a chalice and ciborium that he used for his<br />

first Mass.<br />

If anyone deserved a great deal of<br />

credit for his priestly vocation, it was his<br />

parents, Wilson said. When he addressed<br />

the Catholic Men’s luncheon in May, a<br />

month before his ordination, he told the<br />

group what a profound impact on his<br />

openness to a vocation his parents made<br />

to him. “They served as models on how to<br />

live out their Catholic faith and helped to<br />

foster in their children the desire to do<br />

God’s will.”<br />

One of Wilson’s classmates, James<br />

DeSapri, said he remembered Wilson’s<br />

family being very spiritual, and that<br />

Jonathan drew a lot from them. Wilson is<br />

grateful that he was spared the expectations<br />

some parents have that their children<br />

attend the right schools and pursue<br />

the right careers. “They gave me the<br />

freedom to pursue God’s will when I had<br />

other options,” he said. “I was free from<br />

that so I could pursue vocations and not<br />

feel bound by material or worldly ambitions.”<br />

DeSapri said that any parish will be<br />

lucky to have Wilson. “When you combine<br />

being outgoing and his positive<br />

motivation, and being patient, you end up<br />

with a really outstanding priest. “I’m sure<br />

his congregation is going to know that<br />

right away,” DeSapri added.<br />

Thanks for the privilege<br />

By George G. Vargo, ’58<br />

Since I entered <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> nearly 50<br />

years ago as a member of the Class of<br />

1958, the school has played an influential<br />

role in my life. <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> has been a<br />

defining experience in my life because of<br />

the special relationships I formed as a<br />

student and continued to experience as<br />

advisory board member and board chair.<br />

One of the more meaningful gifts an<br />

advisory board chairman receives in<br />

return for serving<br />

is the privilege of<br />

meeting many<br />

wonderful young<br />

men and their<br />

families. I also<br />

became much<br />

better acquainted<br />

with the excellent<br />

faculty and staff of<br />

George G. Vargo ’58<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>. I will<br />

never be able to<br />

repay <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> for these friendships. In<br />

a funny kind of way, my service to the<br />

school is one of the best bonuses I ever<br />

received.<br />

I thank my fellow Board members for<br />

serving and loving the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> way. I<br />

worked most of my years with school<br />

principal Dominic Cavello and his outstanding<br />

and caring staff. I can say<br />

without a doubt that <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> is blessed<br />

because of its outstanding administration.<br />

It has been a pleasure to serve <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

under Dominic’s leadership.<br />

The torch has been passed to Jim<br />

Finn, class of<br />

1965, our new<br />

Board chair. Jim<br />

feels deeply about<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> and<br />

the school’s<br />

future. It will be a<br />

pleasure to remain<br />

on the Board and<br />

continue to serve<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.<br />

Happy birthday <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> Prep.<br />

That’s right, the<br />

wonderful school<br />

that was founded in<br />

1923 as a scrawny<br />

newcomer, has<br />

officially become an<br />

octogenarian — a<br />

very fit and robust<br />

Douglas H. <strong>St</strong>ein ’78<br />

octogenarian that<br />

still has the knack<br />

for attracting and producing future leaders.<br />

It’s a true blessing — and delight —<br />

to all of your dedicated supporters that<br />

you turn 80 this September.<br />

What’s truly special about this birthday<br />

celebration is the fact that the school’s<br />

founding tenet of 80 years ago remains<br />

the cornerstone today: attract qualified<br />

boys from all parts of Columbus and<br />

surrounding areas and make it possible —<br />

oftentimes with the financial support of<br />

others — for each and every one of them<br />

to attend. No obstacles. Just opportunities.<br />

This annual process began once again<br />

this August 26 when <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> welcomed<br />

165 freshmen who represent the future<br />

Class of 2007. Wide-eyed, but ready for<br />

challenges, they walk the same hallways<br />

and sit in the same classrooms pretty<br />

much as you, your son, or grandson did.<br />

Some things have changed on the<br />

campus but the curriculum and work ethic<br />

remains constant. It’s wonderful, for<br />

example, when the school principal<br />

himself teaches each and every student in<br />

his freshman year. That way an assessment<br />

can be made in the early stages of<br />

each student’s career at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.<br />

All of us know how much the world<br />

has changed, and all of us can count on <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> preparing the Class of 2007 to<br />

cope with a changing world when it leaves<br />

here four years from now as the 80th<br />

graduating class. But, for the time being,<br />

let’s hope all are exposed to the annual<br />

rite of “re-focusing” which might include<br />

the traditional, “Gentlemen, look out the<br />

window…” advice. Or perhaps the<br />

“Gentlemen, look to your right; now your<br />

left….” or “All of Gaul is divided into three<br />

parts…” Having made it through after<br />

those — and other — sobering reflections<br />

you have what it takes to call yourself a<br />

Carolian.<br />

And so we close with a “Happy 80th<br />

birthday <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.” You are an important<br />

part of my life. How about yours? And<br />

thank you, all loyal Carolians, faculty and<br />

administrators, parents, grandparents and<br />

The Distinctive Leader in Catholic Education<br />

siblings for showing <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> 80 years<br />

of love, devotion and support. With God’s<br />

grace, the sun never sets on the <strong>St</strong>.<br />

A Dramatic Transformation<br />

If it has been more than a year since<br />

you’ve driven past “2010 East Broad,”<br />

please make it a point to stop by and see<br />

the dramatic transformation that has<br />

beautified our campus and highlights the<br />

school’s classic colonnade entrance.<br />

Generous response to our ongoing<br />

Campaign for <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> has made<br />

possible a beautiful new front entryway<br />

and renovated front courtyard. A functional<br />

new semi-circular driveway has<br />

been built and dedicated as “Cardinal<br />

Circle.” Thanks to a special partnership<br />

with friends and colleagues – once rivals,<br />

perhaps – we have a new and attractive<br />

memorial grove of flowering crab apple<br />

trees that memorializes <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

alumni and former students as well as<br />

those from Aquinas College High <strong>School</strong><br />

who made the ultimate sacrifice in service<br />

to the United <strong>St</strong>ates and defense of our<br />

freedom.<br />

Late this summer, ground was broken<br />

in the rear courtyard for a new elevator to<br />

service our students and visitors with<br />

physical limitations. The school also is<br />

well on its way to securing the campaign’s<br />

primary goal of $10 million.<br />

“<strong>St</strong>udent financial aid is the cornerstone<br />

of this capital campaign,” said<br />

Principal Dominic Cavello ’64. “Since July<br />

2001, <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> benefactors have initiated<br />

17 new endowed scholarship funds;<br />

five new endowment funds to support our<br />

great faculty; three endowments to<br />

support technology; an endowment to<br />

support the performing arts; and another<br />

endowment to establish the Borromean<br />

Lecture Series,” he pointed out. Our<br />

intention was to raise $3 million in new<br />

endowments for student financial aid that<br />

will provide an additional $150,000 annually<br />

for need-based scholarships and we<br />

are well on our way to achieving that<br />

goal,” Cavello said.<br />

In total, <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> during this special<br />

campaign has received $9,750,000 in<br />

private support from alumni, parents and<br />

grandparents, faculty and staff, and select<br />

members of the community. Thanks to<br />

these efforts, the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Endowment<br />

and the school’s endowed funds at The<br />

Catholic Foundation have now reached<br />

the $5 million mark.<br />

“All of the campaign’s extraordinary<br />

achievements,” noted Doug <strong>St</strong>ein, director<br />

of development, “would not be possible<br />

without leadership volunteers and the<br />

generous giving of 500 people who are<br />

truly committed to <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.”<br />

<strong>St</strong>ein also credits the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

Advisory Board and Dominic Cavello for<br />

“having the vision to adopt an aggressive<br />

campaign plan, especially in a time of<br />

crisis.” The school’s campaign plan was<br />

adopted three months prior to the tragic<br />

events of Sept. 11, 2001. “Our leaders<br />

could have adjusted the goal prior to the<br />

public launch date, but to their credit they<br />

stayed the course,” <strong>St</strong>ein said.<br />

“The outreach efforts of our campaign<br />

committee members, many of whom are<br />

Advisory Board members, proves that<br />

fund raising at a great school like <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> isn’t limited to one or two people<br />

– it’s everybody’s job. When the campaign<br />

plan was adopted, they made a commitment<br />

to each other and the school. That’s<br />

why <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> has been so successful<br />

and that’s what it takes to be a leader,” he<br />

said.<br />

<strong>St</strong>ein said the school has been blessed<br />

with an “all-star campaign committee,” led<br />

by Bob Walter ’63, Matt Howard ’58, and<br />

Tim Kelley ’76. “What these three have<br />

done has re-defined the way <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

builds partnerships that lead to private<br />

support.”<br />

<strong>St</strong>ein also credits the campaign phase<br />

leaders for helping <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> get close to<br />

reaching its goal. “We’re two or three gifts<br />

away from going over the top. The volunteers<br />

who have gotten us to this point are<br />

Len Iannarino ’58 and Press Southworth<br />

’65, who co-chaired the alumni phase;<br />

Msgr. Paul Enke ’64, chairman of the<br />

clergy phase; and Dan Tarpy and Jim<br />

Lower, co-chairs of the parent phase. “I<br />

cannot begin to impress on our community<br />

how important it was to receive<br />

support from our major gift committee<br />

members and co-chairs. Those of us who<br />

work on this campaign every day recognize<br />

the efforts of people such as Rich<br />

Crabtree ’83, Jim Finn ’65, Chuck<br />

Gerhring ’74, Bob Horner ’79, Tom<br />

Mackessy ’77, Tom O’Leary ’64, Katy<br />

Ryan Paolini, Dr. Pat Rankin ’61, Dr. Dan<br />

Rankin ’53, Jay Ryan ’76, Dr. Tom Ryan<br />

’58, Mike Sullivan ’58 and George Vargo<br />

’58. “<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> will never be able to repay<br />

these individuals,” <strong>St</strong>ein said. “It has<br />

been a great experience working with Lou<br />

Fabro ’49. Lou is an excellent example of<br />

an alumnus who has served this school<br />

with all his heart and soul. His expertise<br />

Tri-Captains<br />

Jack Ryan’s 1963 football captains Jim Wiles (l), Bob<br />

Walter (c), and Bob <strong>Fall</strong>er enjoy their 40-year class<br />

reunion, held at Walter’s home last July. For the special<br />

occasion, Walter wore his original letter sweater from<br />

his days at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.<br />

More than $6,700 was raised recently by<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Class of 1963 to establish<br />

the Class of ’63 Alumni Memorial<br />

Fund. The new scholarship fund, which<br />

honors deceased alumni from the class,<br />

was initiated as part of the class’s 40-year<br />

reunion party for which Class of ’63<br />

alumnus, Bob Walter, graciously served<br />

as host. Also invited to that 40-year<br />

reunion party were the ’63 alumni from<br />

Aquinas College High <strong>School</strong> and the<br />

alumnae from <strong>St</strong>. Mary of the Springs.<br />

The Aquinas alumni contributed $2,600 to<br />

augment the Fr. John R. Smith Aquinas<br />

Alumni Scholarship at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>. Father<br />

Smith was a revered teacher and<br />

respected disciplinarian at Aquinas.<br />

The family and <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> classmates<br />

of Bob Ferris, a member of the Class of<br />

1956, have established the Robert J.<br />

Ferris ’56 Memorial Fund at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>.<br />

Ferris died in the World Trade Center<br />

when it was destroyed in the Sept. 11,<br />

200l terrorist attack. Jerry Rankin of<br />

Philadephia, a ’56 classmate, served as<br />

host to a brunch the morning of May 22 at<br />

the Columbus Country Club to initiate the<br />

Ferris Fund. The brunch coincided with<br />

the dedication of the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>/Aquinas<br />

Memorial Grove. Among the 40 alumni<br />

who are commemorated on a bronze<br />

plaque in that memorial is Bob Ferris.<br />

The family, friends, business associates,<br />

and <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> classmates of the<br />

late John W. Brown, a graduate of the<br />

Class of 1951, recently established the<br />

36<br />

John W. Brown ’51<br />

Memorial Fund at<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>. Brown<br />

died May <strong>2003</strong>.<br />

The Casey<br />

Mentel ’93 Memorial<br />

Fund was<br />

initiated at <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> in December,<br />

2002 to honor<br />

Patrick Casey<br />

Patrick Casey Mentel ’93<br />

Mentel, a member<br />

of the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> Class of 1993 who<br />

died in 1995. The Class of 1993’s 10-year<br />

reunion planning committee, which<br />

included Michael Allen, Andy Bartz,<br />

Craig Donley, Anthony Mampieri,<br />

Michael Pione, Kyle <strong>St</strong>rahler, has<br />

adopted Casey’s fund as part of their 10-<br />

year reunion service project to support <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong>.<br />

Dave Pemberton Jr., Class of 1979,<br />

has initiated the Pemberton Family<br />

Scholarship at <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> as part of the<br />

family’s support of the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> campaign.<br />

The new scholarship will provide<br />

one “full-ride” scholarship, renewable on<br />

an annual basis, for the duration of the<br />

campaign and beyond.<br />

In May, Anonymous donor #1 initiated<br />

a $100,000 endowment designated toward<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> need-based scholarships.<br />

In August, Anonymous donor #2<br />

initiated a $50,000 bequest through the<br />

donor’s estate plan to benefit <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

<strong>2003</strong> Cardinal Walk Surpasses Goal<br />

The students of <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> have come<br />

through again. The school’s 20th annual<br />

Cardinal Scholarship Walk, coordinated by<br />

the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>St</strong>udent Council, raised<br />

$25,589 to help meet the ongoing financial<br />

assistance needs of <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> students<br />

and their families.<br />

“It’s our school’s 80-year tradition that<br />

In the homestretch<br />

(From left) <strong>St</strong>udents Liam Shanahan, Mark Fleming,<br />

Dustin Schick, Matt Teetor, John Duffy, Michael Kelley,<br />

and Joe Sauer walk along Clifton Avenue near the<br />

school’s rear entrance as they complete the annual 5-<br />

mile Cardinal Walk<br />

no boy shall be denied a <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

education due to a lack of funds,” said<br />

faculty member and <strong>St</strong>udent Council<br />

moderator, John O’Neil. “<strong>St</strong>udents know<br />

that if they are not successful on the<br />

Cardinal Walk, many of their fellow<br />

students could be affected. They truly are<br />

‘their brothers’ keepers.’” O’Neil said this<br />

year’s walk was a <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> community<br />

effort. “Not only did students participate<br />

in collecting donations, but many of my<br />

fellow teachers did also.”<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> principal Dominic Cavello<br />

said during the current 2002-<strong>2003</strong> academic<br />

year more than $250,000 in scholarships<br />

and grants were distributed to <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> students who demonstrated need<br />

and academic potential. “I am extremely<br />

proud of the students and the effort they<br />

put forth on behalf of their friends and<br />

classmates,” Cavello said. “The Cardinal<br />

Walk is an important part of our development<br />

program. I am grateful to our<br />

<strong>St</strong>udent Council officers, and to John<br />

O’Neil, for their leadership and direction.”<br />

The Distinctive Leader in Catholic Education<br />

Conceptual Plan for Atrium Announced<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> leadership has announced<br />

the school is considering a conceptual<br />

building expansion that would enclose<br />

the rear courtyard with a four-level<br />

structure built of steel and glass. The<br />

structure, for which ground would be<br />

broken ground in 2004, would provide<br />

the school an expansive commons area<br />

for daily use by all students and faculty<br />

as well as a new fine arts center. Plans<br />

and a model of the concept were created<br />

by 1963 alumnus, Bob Corna, an architect<br />

in Cleveland and has been reviewed<br />

by the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> administration and<br />

Advisory Board.<br />

“The atrium is a high priority<br />

because it would create an enclosed<br />

space on the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> campus that<br />

would be utilized by every student,<br />

every day,” said Principal Dominic<br />

Cavello ’64. “In effect,” Cavello said,<br />

“the proposed atrium expansion would<br />

make it possible for <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> to add<br />

much-needed classrooms, a fine arts<br />

center, and a new student commons —<br />

a growing concept in high school<br />

education — that strengthens community-building<br />

among the student body.<br />

Community is something <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

stresses and the proposed<br />

commons would help facilitate<br />

that goal,” he said.<br />

Planning for the proposed<br />

atrium, Cavello emphasized,<br />

is ongoing. As part<br />

of that process, the school is<br />

seeking firm estimates of<br />

costs to build and operate the<br />

expansion. Cavello said the<br />

proposed atrium addition will<br />

be the first made to the<br />

original school building since<br />

1937, when the Mother of<br />

Mercy chapel was attached to<br />

the school’s east wing. The<br />

east wing, itself, was extended<br />

to the north in an<br />

expansion completed in 1931.<br />

The original school building<br />

was constructed in 1924-25.<br />

donor wishes to honor. It is recommended<br />

that you consult with a member of our<br />

Development staff to draft an endowment<br />

description to guide the use of your<br />

endowment once it is established. This<br />

confidential description will remain in our<br />

files until your bequest is received, or you<br />

can begin the endowment now with an<br />

The original case statement for the<br />

Campaign for <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, noted campaign<br />

co-chair Tim Kelley ’76, included a second<br />

phase for construction of a new arts<br />

center and creation of additional classroom<br />

space. “The atrium concept,” he<br />

said “offers a wonderful opportunity for <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> to realize those goals that were<br />

outlined in our original campaign proposal,”<br />

Kelley said.<br />

“Creation of a student commons,”<br />

Kelley added, “makes a strong statement<br />

about <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>’ emphasis with its<br />

students about the importance of community.<br />

This is something I believe that all<br />

alumni, parents, and school benefactors<br />

appreciate.”<br />

“Once <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> reaches its original<br />

campaign goal of $10 million — and that<br />

will be soon — this expansion project will<br />

be blended in the campaign’s originallyannounced<br />

‘stretch’ goal to raise an<br />

additional $2 million to benefit the students,”<br />

reported Doug <strong>St</strong>ein, director of<br />

development. Funding for the proposed<br />

expansion, <strong>St</strong>ein added, would come from<br />

private, leadership-level gifts. The Campaign<br />

for <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> was initiated in July<br />

200l and is scheduled to end in June 2005.<br />

your bequest. Your attorney, accountant<br />

Development Update<br />

Crabtree was ardent supporter<br />

of <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

by Louis V. Fabro ’49<br />

“Rick Crabtree was an ardent advocate of <strong>St</strong>.<br />

<strong>Charles</strong> and, together with his wife, Margaret,<br />

greatly admired <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> and all it stands for,<br />

especially the school’s strong dedication to Catholic<br />

education.”<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> principal Dominic Cavello offered<br />

this comment upon the death of Richard D. “Rick”<br />

Crabtree last May. The Crabtrees had two sons<br />

who were <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong><br />

graduates. They are<br />

John D., Class of ’86,<br />

and Richard M. “Rich”<br />

Crabtree, Class of ’83.<br />

Indicative of their<br />

strong commitment to<br />

<strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong>, Rick and<br />

Margaret Crabtree in<br />

2001 made a six-figure<br />

Fund to benefit the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> faculty. Mrs.<br />

Crabtree, a teacher by profession, taught and<br />

served as principal in Columbus diocesan schools,<br />

the latest at <strong>St</strong>. Catherine.<br />

Mr. Crabtree, 62, died May 9 after fighting<br />

cancer for two years. He was president and chief<br />

operating officer of Nationwide Mutual Insurance<br />

Company from 1996 to 1999. Headquartered in<br />

Columbus, Ohio, where it was founded, Nationwide<br />

is one of the largest property-casualty insurers in<br />

the United <strong>St</strong>ates.<br />

“Under Mr. Crabtree’s direction,” according to<br />

a company statement, “Nationwide Insurance<br />

experienced an unprecedented transformation<br />

through expansion and growth.” Nationwide’s<br />

current president and COO, Galen Barnes, said:<br />

“Companies like Nationwide develop a legacy of<br />

dedication and commitment. Rick gave 34 years of<br />

diligent service to help create Nationwide’s legacy.”<br />

Adding a personal note, Barnes said, “Rick’s devotion<br />

to his family, church, philantrophic endeavors<br />

and this community were truly extraordinary.”<br />

Crabtree joined Nationwide in 1965 as an<br />

underwriter in Canton, Ohio, quickly rose through<br />

a series of management positions that led to<br />

various executive promotions and eventually to the<br />

company presidency in 1996. He and his wife made<br />

their residence in Annapolis, Md., after his retirement.<br />

Mass of Christian burial was celebrated for<br />

Mr. Crabtree in historic <strong>St</strong>. Mary Church in Annapolis.<br />

A new stone sign greets people entering the <strong>St</strong>. <strong>Charles</strong> campus at<br />

Service is priority of <strong>St</strong>udent Council<br />

By John O’Neil, advisor<br />

The Saint <strong>Charles</strong> <strong>St</strong>udent Council has always sought to make service a<br />

high priority for its members and the school. If we cannot equal the deed of<br />

our patron saint <strong>Charles</strong> Borromeo, who sold his inheritance and gave the<br />

proceeds to the destitute, then at least we can commit to community outreach.<br />

It is by this means that we strive to keep homelessness, hunger, and<br />

need in the minds and hearts of our students.<br />

During the Christmas season, Saint <strong>Charles</strong> homerooms provide homeless<br />

families, under the care of a local shelter, gifts for each of its family<br />

members. This is quite a challenging project, involving much coordination<br />

and a short timeline, coming to finality during the first semester exam<br />

week. This effort on the part of our faculty, students, and parents truly<br />

reflects our school community’s care and concern for our fellow brothers<br />

and sisters. While numerous students help to deliver these gifts, I only wish<br />

that more of our students could see the project come to full fruition and<br />

their gifts placed in the hands of their adopted families.<br />

The Christmas gift project is in tandem each year with a weekly monetary<br />

collection during the season of Advent, the fruits of which are presented<br />

to Saint John’s Community Kitchen to benefit the food pantry. As<br />

the need facing Saint John’s mounts each year, I am proud that our students’<br />

responsiveness to the plight of the hungry increases. We must<br />

remain continually mindful that, although hunger and homelessness continually<br />

beset humankind, we can make a difference in the fight against<br />

them.<br />

The holy season of Lent is observed in service with school wide support<br />

of the food pantry at Saint <strong>St</strong>ephen’s Community House. A weekly monetary<br />

contribution supplements a nonperishable food drive in which each grade<br />

level is assigned a specific, “most-needed” item to collect. Again, I am<br />

pleased that Saint <strong>Charles</strong> students recognize the seriousness of hunger and<br />

malnutrition in our immediate community. I hope that the trend of students’<br />

volunteering service during and beyond their Saint <strong>Charles</strong> years will<br />

continue to benefit agencies such as Saint <strong>St</strong>ephen’s.<br />

The third major school wide student service effort comes in the dizzying<br />

final days of the school year. This important project is the Cardinal Walk<br />

Scholarship Drive. It was started 20 years ago to give students a part in<br />

raising tuition assistance resources for fellow Carolians from financiallylimited<br />

backgrounds.<br />

I am exceedingly proud of our students’ support of the Cardinal Walk.<br />

When the project first began, it was the goal to raise $10,000. Since 1989,<br />

each new goal has been met and surpassed in every year but one. In 2001,<br />

the student body raised $30,753; in 2002, $28,104; and most recently this<br />

spring, despite a somber economic climate, they exceeded their goal of<br />

$25,000. In fifteen years, nearly $250,000 in financial aid money has been<br />

raised by students.<br />

Clearly our students understand that challenges and hurdles such as the<br />

hunger, homelessness, and financial hardship of others “after all, are part of<br />

our work.”<br />

In addition to these major service projects, <strong>St</strong>udent Council members<br />

fulfill numerous other roles. They are frequent servers and bearers at<br />

Mass. They represent the school community on specific occasions as<br />

needed. They plan and carry out social and community-building events such<br />

as dances and the annual Circus Day celebration in May. And of course they<br />

represent their peers, providing a channel of input for student concerns and<br />

ideas. Just this spring, the <strong>St</strong>udent Council renewed its connection with the<br />

Ohio Association of <strong>St</strong>udent Councils, which will increase the opportunities<br />

for members of student government to experience leadership training<br />

events. Jason Ryan’03 and Michael Kelley ’03 inaugurated our involvement,<br />

attending a valuable retreat weekend in April.<br />

It is to this truth that so much of what happens at Saint <strong>Charles</strong> is<br />

dedicated: “we are our brother’s keeper.” The motto of the <strong>St</strong>udent Council<br />

aspires to that same end: In servitute Deo et civitati et fratribus—”In<br />

service to God, to our community, and to our brothers.” With due acknowledgment<br />

to the critical support of our parents, teachers, alumni and benefactors,<br />

we hope to keep our gaze fixed on that ideal, and just possibly to<br />

wedge securely in place one stone in the building of God’s Kingdom.<br />
