Monks Host All School Luncheon
On Wednesday, January 28, the Marmion Academy community celebrated both Catholic Schools Week and the "Year of Consecrated Life” (a year of the Catholic Church honoring all men and women in religious orders). The Marmion monastic community treated the staff, faculty and student body to lunch with the monks helping serve the meal. The festive meal featured an extended lunch period, a decorated dining hall, piano music played by several Marmion students, a delicious Italian luncheon from Belgio’s Catering, and a few words of welcome from Abbot John Brahill O.S.B. ’67 and Head of School and Principal Mr. Anthony Tinerella ’84. Special mention and thanks was given to the Marmion Alumni Association who generously funded the event. Mr. Wayne Hoover ’87, the chairman of the Alumni Board, also shared a few thoughts with the students.
