The Class of 2024 officially became upperclassmen at the cherished Ring Ceremony that took place on Friday in the H. David Bowes Auditorium. This year’s theme was provided by Psalm 93:4: “Mightier than the waves of the sea is His love for you.” Ring Ceremony is a wonderful moment for our juniors as they took the opportunity to reflect on how much they have already accomplished as a class, once on separate campuses and now as one at Cathedral Prep.
President Kevin Smith led the student body in an opening prayer, followed by reflections from class officers Olivia Kallner ‘24 and Drew Brown ‘24. A slideshow featuring photos of many of the moments that have forged a strong bond for the Class of 2024 was shared during the ceremony as well.
The rings were distributed to the students by Assistant Vice Presidents of Student Affairs Mrs. Veronica Seip and Mr. Rick Herbstritt ’96. Fr. Mike DeMartinis and Fr. Jason Feigh then blessed the Class of 2023 and their rings! Vice President of Academics and Student Affairs Mr. Will Pituch ’01VMA closed out the ceremony with remarks commending the Class of 2024’s leadership and unity through not only this transition, but through every aspect of their high school careers. Following the ceremony, a reception was held in the main concourse for the juniors and their families.
Class rings are a symbol of the never-ending bond and connection they will have with each other for a lifetime!
