A Letter from the President & Principal Dear Friends: Soon after you received last year’s edition of the Mary Whipkey President
CCHS magazine we were blessed by the historic
Heather Crisci Principal
visit of Pope Francis to the United States during our opening weeks of the academic year. What an amazing way to begin the 128th year of this educational institution. Pope Francis shared inspiring messages with us during his time here, and many Camden Catholic students, families and alumni were blessed with the opportunity to experience the Pope’s visit on an incredibly intimate level. Fr. Scott Pilarz, S.J. ’77 greeted the Pope and exchanged words with him in Washington. He shares the story of his inspiring meeting on page 19, as do many of our community members who experienced the Pope’s visit. Pope Francis made history by declaring this the Jubilee Year of Mercy, inviting Catholics all over the world to participate in corporal and spiritual works of mercy to build a closer relationship with God. We are proud of the many alumni, students and faculty who have been inspired to participate in the Jubilee Year. We’ve chosen to feature just a few of these stories beginning on page 16. We were blessed to celebrate the 10th Annual Hall of Fame event in April, honoring the newest inductees while welcoming home more than 50 current Hall of Fame members, pictured on the cover. Oh, what a night it was! The good work of our faculty endures, our enrollment continues to grow with the class of 2020 entering in the fall, and the support of our alumni is stronger than ever. The Campaign for the Future is funding the next capital project, transformation of the library into the Information Commons. Construction is underway and will provide for a contemporary space for 21st Century learning. You can learn more about the project, and how you or your class can help, on page 50. We leave you with these inspiring words from our Pope as we prepare to embark on the 129th year of Camden Catholic High School: “Mercy is the force that reawakens us to new life and instills in us the courage to look to the future with hope.” Yours in Honor, Faith and Loyalty,
Mary Whipkey, P ’01, ’03, ’05

A Letter from the Board Chair: Robert DiStanislao ’78 Dear Alumni and Friends: It is with great pride that I assumed the position of Chairman of the Board of Trustees last year. As I have built my career over the years, I have watched as countless Camden Catholic graduates have been successful at their various professional pursuits all over the country. As I return to Camden Catholic I see an internationally diverse student body poised to become contributing citizens of the world. What makes this so significant is that within our hallways the students are interacting with the area’s most demographically diverse group of students. Our graduates will have the opportunity to know first-hand about interaction and collaboration with an international population. This experience of communication and cooperation across cultures prepares our future alumni to take their place in a world which requires us to cross national borders and appreciate customs different from our own. The learning experience within Camden Catholic’s internationally and ethnically diverse environment, uniquely qualifies our graduates to be outstanding citizens in our own country. As the 2016 presidential campaign has shown, ours is a population riven by economic and social disparities. It is a time for people to reach across these divides to objectively listen. With their practice of communication across demographic boundaries, our students can lead by example and be the citizens that our world so desperately needs. If you haven’t been back to campus recently, I urge you to visit. You will meet some very impressive young people. These are young people who are gifted intellectually, emotionally and athletically. And South Jersey is taking notice – Camden Catholic is growing. It is the only school in the diocese experiencing an increase in enrollment. But the work is far from over. Ever evolving technology places continuous demands on our infrastructure. The curriculum is constantly being adapted to suit our students’ needs. The need for physical and athletic space is growing.
ALMA MATER! Elizabeth Dreher and Sister Mary Christine Tobin Hail, Alma Mater! To thee we raise Our grateful hearts in this our song of praise; Hither we came, thy truth and wisdom to attain May thy blest guiding pow’r forever with us reign. Hail, Alma Mater! Mem’ry recalls Our golden happy years within thy walls; Friendships of youthful days shall never grow cold; Long shall we cherish true glad days of old. Hail, Alma Mater! Deep in our hearts We treasure all our memories of thee Throughout the years to come may this our stanchion be: Honor and Loyalty with Faith inspired by thee.
I would encourage you to remember what Camden Catholic meant to you, and how it positioned you for your place in the world. Now, I invite you to see what being at Camden Catholic means to our students today. You will be pleased and proud to observe that even as the world has changed, Camden Catholic remains the setting where our students take giant steps toward crafting a successful future. You will engage with young people who are aware of the need for environmental stewardship and social justice. Camden Catholic has been changing lives for more than one hundred years and will continue developing men and women who will make the world a better place. Return. Observe. Engage.

$88,630.56 Irish Giving Day 2016
In 24 Hours For the second annual Irish Giving Day the Fighting Irish spirit was unmatched! With a goal of $70,000 we started the day excited for what was to come, as we had been so impressed with the participation in the inaugural Irish Giving Day in 2015. Could we, would we, be able to do it again? And raise even more money for the Annual Fund? The resounding answer was “Yes!” from almost 500 donors who participated.
Thanks to the efforts of Advancement Coordinator Lindsay Scheuer, many members of the CCHS staff and alumni representatives took on the task of reaching out to alumni, friends, former parents, faculty, staff and students to ask for their support. When the final numbers were tallied we had a lot to be thankful for! 494 Total Donors
The classes of 2005-2015 raised $3,512.40 which was matched by our generous alumnus donor! The classes of 2016-2019, our current student body, also contributed by holding an Irish-themed dress-down day and Dodge Ball Tournament with all proceeds contributing to the day’s total. We thank you for your continued support of this endeavor, and ask you to remember to save the date for the Third Annual Irish Giving Day, Friday, March 17, 2017. For a list of donors please see the Annual Report on page 63.
25 Gifts of $1,000+ 21 Different funds or designations represented from the arts to various athletic teams to scholarships and more. The class of 2015 had the highest number of donors represented from the Young Alumni classes of 2000-2015 with 17 donors. 355
10TH ANNUAL HALL OF FAME
Saturday, April 23, 2016 was an especially memorable Hall of Fame event. Not only did we
induct an incredibly talented, skilled, and faith-filled class, but we also honored the past 10 years of Hall of Fame inductees. Many past inductees were gracious enough to join us for the event, gathering for a very special photo opportunity just before the ceremony. Memories abounded, and more than once the phrase “Wow, what an accomplished group! This is why Camden Catholic is so special,” was overheard as the photographer snapped away. From state champions to honored clergy, dedicated faculty to Naval admirals, doctors, attorneys, board members, and many more shining examples of Camden Catholic alumni celebrated their membership in this elite group.
Congratulations to this year’s inductees and many thanks to the Hall of Fame committee for their extensive work on this annual endeavor.

Exemplary Students in the Camden Catholic Tradition Community Lisa Hoang As a Langan-Nadell scholar at Camden Catholic, Lisa Hoang earned a full scholarship for four years of high school, and has turned that opportunity into several college acceptances and over $700,000 in college scholarship and grant offers. Despite these impressive statistics, Lisa remains humble, and thankful for the community support. “Lisa is a wonderful young woman who took advantage of an opportunity and excelled at Camden Catholic,” says Barbara Cortese, Director of Guidance. “She understands the sacrifice that a person made so she could have a chance. Now she has made the most of her chance and can begin working on a goal to push someone else forward.” Lisa has not only achieved academically but was instrumental in promoting the LUCY Program as part of her Community Service. LUCY (Lifting Up Camden’s Youth) is an after school program that services high school students leading them to a productive high school career along with preparing them for their future college success. As a LUCY scholar, Lisa realized the positive affect a community can have, and hopes to return the favor. “After finishing college, I see myself staying in Boston for a while and no matter what, I plan to be involved with service in some way whether that is through my professional career or setting aside time from work to serve the community.”
Arts Jordon Malick Arriving from St. Peter School in Merchantville, Jordon didn’t have to travel far to expand his horizons as a freshman. Upon his first days wearing the green and white, he became involved in a diverse set of activities from baseball and swimming to CCTV, the Leadership Academy and the Gaming Club. However, it was CCTV and the mentorship of faculty member Jeff Bruckner which allowed Jordon’s natural interest in film and communications studies to truly flourish at CCHS. “I've learned as much from Jordon as he has from class,” says Mr. Bruckner. “Through his example, I've learned how to treat others better and how to listen to my students more. Jordon is an example for all of us to follow, in how to approach life's curveballs: have a solid approach, trust you're in a good place, and swing confidently believing something great is right around the corner.” “Taking Digital Film Production with Mr. Bruckner during my sophomore year allowed me to realize what could be possible in my future,” says Jordon. “I am confident entering St. John’s as a film major because of the solid foundation provided me by the communications and film classes at CCHS.” Beyond the arts, Jordon has built a solid foundation for success through skills learned in the Leadership Academy. He participated in the Scholar Course Retreat as a leader, learning a great deal about himself, and how to work with others. “I’ll never forget the lessons I learned and the relationships I built there,” he says. Where will Jordon be in five years? “Wherever I am, I’ll have a camera in my hand,” he says.

International Student Chloe Gao As a part of the mission of Camden Catholic High School, our students are taught to develop as “life long learners and leaders in a global society in the Catholic tradition.” The success of Chloe Gao at CCHS speaks to how important the students of the international program are to the Camden Catholic experience. “Chloe's future is a bright one, for many reasons, but mainly because she is a young woman of character,” says English faculty member and mentor to Chloe, Nancy Werner-Kaiser. “She demonstrates the true meaning of humility in that she strives to be her own person, confident in her abilities, yet aware that those with whom she interacts have just as many talents. I look forward to witnessing her contribution to the world.” Not only is Chloe graduating among the top 10 percent of her class, accepted into some of the nation’s top colleges and universities, but she has flourished during her time at CCHS by immersing herself into the larger community who she now calls her family. She has participated in the Shakespeare Club, Actors Guild, Model UN, Magic Club, Pep Squad and Cross Country. “I will miss the morning and afternoon prayers the most,” she says. “Through these prayers CCHS gathers as a family. It’s a great way to start the day, and it’s like a fresh breeze after a long day of study.” At Boston University, Chloe expects to focus her studies on communications and psychology with the hope of working in the advertising profession. 12
ATTENDING: Boston University ACCEPTED: Brandeis University, Northeastern University, Syracuse University, University of WisconsinMadison SENIOR RESEARCH TOPIC: “Are Conspiracy Theories Ordinary Gossip or Political Plots?”
Tradition Shannon Ward The Ward family is a true gift to Camden Catholic. Not only do they have many alumni family members (Shannon’s father Michael ’75 and sister Erika ’14, uncles Thomas ’76, Patrick ’78, Daniel ’79 and Terrance ’81, aunts Kathy ’89, Carol Lanzalotti-Jennings ’73, Dorothy Lanzalotti-Klein ’75 and cousin Stephanie Smith ’04) but the youngest Ward generation has truly risen the bar academically. “Shannon is naturally intelligent but she backs this up with a great work ethic,” says English faculty member Bob Pacana. “She also sets the bar for herself really high, which is always a good thing. She's going to do really well in any field she chooses.” Shannon has great respect for the tradition of CCHS and became involved in many diverse activities upon entering as a freshman. From volleyball to Student Government to the Green and White and National Honor Societies, she has proven her love for the school, and its importance in her life. “My CCHS classmates are my best friends and the faculty are my role models,” she says. “I don’t believe there is any other school where you can exchange ideas in such a comfortable environment.” When asked about her earliest memory of CCHS, Shannon recalls: “I remember when I was in seventh grade and my sister would absolutely gush about how funny and interesting her teachers in high school are. During freshman orientation I was ecstatic to finally meet them, they were celebrities!” We are certain those same faculty members were just as ecstatic to meet Shannon, and watch her grow during her successful high school career.
ATTENDING: Loyola University, Maryland ACCEPTED: Gettysburg College, Quinnipiac University, The College of New Jersey, Ursinus College SCHOLARSHIPS RECEIVED: Gettysburg Presidential Scholarship, Loyola Presidential Scholarship, TCNJ Merit Scholarship, Quinnipiac Trustee Award, Ursinus Zacharius Scholarship SENIOR RESEARCH TOPIC: “The Problem Within the American Education System”
Opportunity Albin Rosado Entering CCHS as a freshman, Albin Rosado may have been a bit uncertain about his decision, as many freshman are while they find their way through these hallowed halls their first few weeks. Coming from Howard Phifer Middle School in Pennsauken, Albin had left many of his friends to come to Camden Catholic, hoping this opportunity would pave the way for a successful future. Now, graduating four years later and heading to one of the nation’s top schools for engineering, Albin leaves these halls with a new set of knowledge and leadership skills, prepared and confident for what awaits at Lehigh University. “Camden Catholic gives its students many opportunities to not only develop themselves, but to be unique, and discover who it is they want to be,” he says. Albin decided he was going to be involved, as he tried many diverse activities here at CCHS. His participation in many band opportunities (concert, jazz and pep band) and the Leadership Academy was an integral part of his growth as a person. “Mr. Gianfortune has been a great inspiration to me. I hadn’t taken music seriously before coming to CCHS, but being beside Mr. G as he experienced a great health scare my sophomore year inspired me to put more effort into playing the saxophone, and helped me develop a passion for it,” Albin says. “Albin is a hard-working musician and a great person,” said Mr. Gianfortune. “He has been flexible with the band to do and play whatever is best for the group.” Beyond his music, Albin believes the opportunity to be a member of the Christian Leadership class and retreats in the Leadership Academy has been one of the best of his life. “It has helped me to realize my potential and to thrive in new situations.” Albin will pursue a degree in engineering at Lehigh University and hopes to return to work in South Jersey following college.
Top Academics Mary Kate Hatch Beyond earning the number one spot in her class and being named valedictorian, Mary Kate Hatch has participated in the Camden Catholic community in more ways than simply academic. As captain of the swim team, a member of the volleyball team, Student Government, Baking Club, Stage Crew, Leadership Academy and various honor societies, Mary Kate has provided a wonderful example of dedication and drive to fellow students. “Mary Kate is an extraordinarily dedicated student,” says Biology faculty member Megan Marenco. “She has had to work hard for her grade in AP Biology; she met success and failure in this class. Her interest in biology is evident in the quality of work and involvement in class. Mary Kate brings a joyful smile to class every day and her peers love her. I think she'll make an excellent science educator.” Along with her proven success in the classroom, Mary Kate earned the title of Master Scholar in the Leadership Academy by taking several modules and completing a personal leadership project, something which helped expand her thinking outside the classroom. “My greatest learning experience has been leading retreats in Christian Leadership. It has been an impactful and unique experience to engage with other students while strengthening bonds with your classmates, and learning more about my Catholic faith and identity.” Just as much as Mrs. Marenco was an inspiration to Mary Kate’s aspirations to become an educator, we are certain she will have just as great an impact on her future students.

FRANCIS The Camden Catholic family was blessed to celebrate the visit of Pope Francis to the U.S. with alumni, board members, students and faculty experiencing his love in many varied and very personal ways in New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. this past September.
Father Scott Pilarz, S.J. ’77 Camden Catholic Board of Trustees
Sister Pat Welsh, RSM ’47, former CCHS faculty
President, Georgetown Preparatory School
My trip to Philadelphia for the Pope's visit turned out to have several CCHS connections. I am Sister Pat Welsh, class of ’47, and I have done two tours of duty as a teacher at CCHS—once in the 1970s and again in the ‘80s. My cousin, Jim McGrath, who graduated from CCHS in the mid-‘60s, lives Pictured with Monica McGrath and only a couple of (seated) Sister Elizabeth O'Hara and blocks from the Sister Dorothy Lazarick, both former Parkway. So, he CCHS faculty. invited me to come and bring a couple friends. Although it wasn't planned, it turned out that my friends taught at CCHS when Jim was a student there. They are Sister Dorothy Lazarick (formerly Sister Pacelli) and Sister Elizabeth O'Hara (formerly Sister Maris Stella). Then came another CCHS surprise: while going through security, I met Carmen Garcia Mercado who was a student at CCHS when I taught there (in the ’70s, I think). She, her husband and daughter were volunteers for the event. What a small world and what a large CCHS family!
At the start of the school year, I received an invitation from the Archdiocese of Washington to bring a small group of Georgetown Prep students to greet Pope Francis at the home of the Apostolic Nuncio on Massachusetts Avenue in Washington, DC. I assumed Pictured with Georgetown Prep students who accompanied him to this would be a very large gathering, and I have to the Apostolic Nunciature to be in the greeting audience for Pope admit that I was not all that enthusiastic about the Francis on September 24, 2016 opportunity. I was reluctant to get up at 4 a.m., take a bus downtown, go through a gamut of security check points to watch the Pope step out of the Nunciature, wave at the crowd, get into his Fiat and drive to the White House. God had other plans in mind. The morning began as I expected, but when we arrived at the appointed spot, there were approximately 100 people there, most of them representing Catholic schools. The Pope did step out of the house and wave, but instead of getting into his car, he waded into the crowd. I stood back, hoping the students would have a chance to meet Pope Francis. When he was a few feet from me, he reached over a few students, grabbed my hand and asked who I was. When I told him I was a Jesuit, his expression changed, and he moved closer. He asked where I worked. When I said Georgetown Prep, he said, “I know that school. It’s our oldest school in America.” Then he leaned in and said, “Pray for me.” I replied, “I do.” He said, “Every day.” I promised, “I will.” Then with a look I will never forget, he said, “This work is not easy, this work is not easy.” I did not realize that this brief exchange had been filmed, but minutes later I got the first of hundreds of messages from family and friends who watched it on CNN and YouTube. Like so many other Americans who had a chance to meet or watch the Holy Father, I was humbled and exhilarated. I will always be grateful for my moment with Pope Francis.

Carmela DiMaria ’65 I attended the Saturday event with the Pope at Indpendence Mall. And I was there by the intervention of the Holy Spirit. Prior to the Pope's visit I had been contacting friends & acquaintances in Philadelphia that might be able to accommodate me during the visit, as well as obtain a ticket for me at one of the special events, without any success. As a cancer survivor, I am committed to my follow up appointments with my doctors at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and on the Monday prior to the Pope's visit, I had a scheduled appointment. While in the waiting room, a woman walked in and sat next to me (now if you were in Philadelphia a few weeks before the Pope arrived, you could see and feel the excitement in the air all over the city). As we were watching TV, CNN was following the Pope and the woman began speaking to me. She said she was so excited about his visit because she was scheduled to be a Eucharistic minister at the Pope's Mass on Sunday and she had gotten tickets for all of the events through her large family who all live in the Philadelphia parishes. She was an exuberant woman who had taken her mother (who was near death) to Jefferson for a second opinion, and they cured her, so she was very grateful to be there. When I told her that she had taken her mother to the right place and that I was also a cancer survivor (who had worked at Jefferson for 20 years) she was so grateful to hear me say this. With that she asked me what event I was attending to see the Pope. When I replied that I didn't yet have
Joya Oasin, CCHS Faculty (Spanish and Freshman Moderator) I was asked to work security detail at Independence Hall for the Papal Visit to Philadelphia. Before the actual visit, a group of coworkers and I met with local security at the site, saw the route and entrance points for the people who would be attending the event. On September 26th, a larger group of security and event staff arrived at a meeting place at 2:30 a.m. to be escorted into downtown Philadelphia. At that time, it was still dark and the city streets were quiet and empty, though the next several hours would be quite the opposite. As the sun rose, people began to arrive; a man in native Argentine gaucho attire, children, couples, friends, families, parish groups, religious sisters in an array of habits, priests, Bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals from the U.S. and various countries. Many individuals were carrying flags and signs to represent their cultures and some were singing and chanting to welcome Pope Francis to Philadelphia. On a side stage, there were several musical and dance perform-
any tickets, she offered me tickets to all the events. I was stunned when she took my name and address to send me the tickets I needed by mail.. From that moment on, I was all in a dither. After we went our separate ways that day, I began thinking about the best way to get in and out of the city during this very busy weekend.
carrying my tickets. Hallelujah! She had the tickets and told me to stop by a local restaurant outside Center City where she had taken her mother for a late lunch because they were hungry. I met up with them and offered to pay for their lunch, but they would not hear of it. On my way home in a stupor of elation, I kept thinking that my guardian angels sent her to the seat next to me. Unbelievable God-incidence! And of course when the day came for the event, I took three of my friends and was seated in the handicapped section, up in front of the Pope, just to the left of the Cardinals and Bishops. I met a Cardinal and a Bishop from Spain and spoke to them in Italian because they did not speak English. When the Pope arrived, you could hear the cheers from the people along the route a mile away. We at Independence Mall sat silently, listening to the tidal wave of exuberance emanating from the crowds for this most Holy man who has garnered the admiration of all.
Side note: before I left Jefferson, I stopped in the lobby to get a cup of coffee, and the sleeve on the paper cup had a picture of the Pope on it. I was laughing, but so grateful and I still keep the cup in my car, so he's always there with me when I travel. While I was waiting in line at the Septa train station at 11th and Market, I decided to call my 'angel' to see if she had picked up the tickets from her parish yet, and if so I would travel up to her residence in Willow Grove later, since I was already in Philadelphia and leery of any possible delivery problems with the mail
ances which showed the diversity of the audience awaiting the Pontiff. When Pope Francis made his way along the route to the Independence Mall stage, you could hear the crowd cheering as he drove by in the “Pope Mobile.” As he approached the stage area, I was able to see him
up close, when he turned and faced the section of the crowd, where I was standing. He smiled, waved and greeted the people who were looking forward to seeing him and hearing his message.
This is the third Pontiff that I have seen in person, but it was the closest in proximity. What an event! What a day! What a feeling that I can never forget and even as I am writing this months later, tears well up in my eyes knowing that the Lord, My God, who answers everyone's prayers, has once again in my life blessed me in his gentle way! So goes the story of seeing the Pope in person. CCHS students Caroline Smith ’17 & Cecilia Wigginton ’17 were among Diocesan students selected to attend the Papal Mass at Madison Square Garden.
As a Spanish teacher and fluent speaker, I was able to listen to Pope Francis and understand his eloquent words in Spanish, his native language. For me, this was special and significant and one of the most marvelous moments of the day. La habilidad que yo tenía de escuchar y entender al Papa Franciso en español hizo la experiencia aún más personal. I listened and focused on all that Pope Francis said that day in September. The discourse was didactic and insightful, moving and hopeful. I will be forever grateful for the unique opportunity to be a part of the Papal Visit to Philadelphia.

Participation during the Pope's September visit was an amazingly blessed moment in my life! I had signed up to help at the Convention Center on Friday and Saturday as a security check point helper and as a Communion assistant at the Papal Mass on Sunday. The banners posted around Center City shared the Pope's message of “Have the courage to be truly happy” and “We all have the duty to do good.” These words resonated throughout my experience of the weekend. My volunteering began at the Philadelphia Convention Center as an usher at Mass and Adoration on Friday, September 25. Traveling to Philadelphia early in the morning on Patco, a group of people entered the train from Ferry Avenue laughing and clapping their hands while singing songs about “Francisco.” One woman smiled and noticing my volunteer shirt, thanked me for my service and gave me a bracelet with an Our Lady of Guadalupe charm and two Mass cards from her church. She told me how she and her group were here from Mexico and were being hosted at a church in Camden. It was only 7 o'clock in the morning and yet, I was already experiencing the first of many magical moments. I encountered wonderful people the rest of the day, from the seminarians from California who told
Allison Steck ’12 “Pope Weekend,” as it became known around the city, brought a mix of emotions to Philadelphia locals. As plans were set, streets started closing, and businesses had to make new arrangements, an air of annoyance and bitterness started to spread. Many people made plans to leave the city for a getaway from the foreseen chaos and crowds. I, however, decided that I wanted to be an integral part of the action. In the winter of 2015 I had an opportunity to go to a meeting to see what the volunteer position for the World Meeting of Families was all about. After attending, I knew I wanted to be in on the action. After signing up, background checks, and an online training webinar, I was in! I received my assigned location and showed up in the iconic highlighter 18
me they had traveled from the “Land of Mickey Mouse” to a woman who had attended the World Meeting of Families in Spain in 2006 as a participant and had encountered so many warm people on her trip that when she heard the World Meeting of Families was traveling to Pennsylvania, she could not wait to sign up to give back to the pilgrims attending the Philadelphia convention. My husband Kevin and daughter Abby (CCHS Class of 2018) joined me on Saturday and we walked through the streets serenaded by a Mission group from Texas who did not have tickets to attend any of the events but came to Philadelphia over 100 strong to play guitars and drums and joined their voices in song. The empty streets of downtown Philadelphia only helped to carry their voices to many and lent in the celebratory atmosphere of the day. We attended the World Family concert on the Parkway Saturday night and breathlessly waited in the same spot for 5 hours for the “Pope Mobile” motorcade to travel past us. It was all worth the wait and almost unbelievable to have witnessed the Pope. On the way back home, we found our friends Donna and Steph, with CCHS alum Kevin Callahan '79 who had traveled by bicycle over the Ben Franklin Bridge. Sunday's Papal mass found me at the Art Museum steps at 8 a.m. waiting for my training instructions on how to serve in my role as a Communion assistant. There were over 500 priests attending the Mass and over 250 Communion volunteers. The training was brief, we would line up next to the fenced area surrounding the Mass site and when the priests step out at Communion we would walk beside them, holding an umbrella over their head to protect the body of Christ from the elements. We were told that communion was to last for only seven minutes. We were not to linger after seven
orange T-shirt. On the Saturday before the Pope's Mass on the Parkway, a festival was held with music and an address by Pope Francis himself. The crowds showed up in masses and the energy was electric. I greeted people as the Pope arrived, assisted with the security process, and answered questions about logistics and schedules. As word spread that Pope Francis was on his way, people swarmed to the barricades to catch a glimpse as the Pope rode by in his ever famous “Pope Mobile.” When he finally came riding down the Parkway, the excitement and anticipation was palpable. Cameras were raised, babies were shoved in the direction of the Pope's view and cheers were loud. The initial bitterness of the event melted and the compassion of the Pope's smile took over. On the Sunday of the Pope's Mass, even more people showed up to witness history. I met people from Argentina, Texas, Vietnam, and Connecticut. Families and youth groups, couples and friends,
minutes but to return immediately to the assigned area. We were also instructed to act as a watch guard for the host. If a congregant did not immediately place the communion wafer in their mouth and instead walked away with it, we were to alert the priest to go after the person to find out why (thankfully, this did not happen!). The wait for the 4 o'clock mass was lengthy but I met amazing visitors from around the country who came to volunteer for the mass. I also ran into my former next door neighbor from Pennsauken and CCHS graduate Ginny D'Italia ’82, also a Communion assistant, who I had not seen in over 25 years! The big moment had arrived, walking in our assigned lines, next to our assigned partner, crossed the street and lined up next to the fence. When Communion began, we walked briskly (only had seven minutes!) to reach the hundreds of people on the grass around the Parkway. Together, with Fr. Andrew from San Jose Texas, we witnessed the tears of joy and look of beautiful serenity on the faces of the Communicants receiving Communion at the Papal Mass. My daughter also celebrated her 16th birthday on Sunday, September 27 and was thrilled to have spent her birthday with Pope Francis! Following the Pope's message - we were truly happy! President Emeritus Msgr. Andrew Martin attended the Papal Mass at Madison Square Garden and was pleased to meet the talented Harry Connick Jr., who performed at the Mass on September 25.
Church communities and Philadelphia neighbors alike waited in lines with patience just to hear what Pope Francis would say to the city. As the Mass began, the quiet that overtook the Parkway was unreal. The amount of people, the sense of community and the beauty of the entire event was more than words can describe. Those who attended the event (or watched it on television) know just how inspiring and truly amazing the World Meeting of Families was. The cooperation of about 10,000 volunteers, the Police Department, the Fire Department, the Coast Guard, and everyone in between made this event run smoothly, safely and most importantly, showed the “Brotherly Love” and “Sisterly Affection” that Philadelphia is known for. Volunteering for the Pope's visit is something that I will always look back on fondly.
Camden Catholic Students, Faculty & Alumni Celebrate the Jubilee Year of Mercy FOR THE LOVE OF FRANCIS
In March of 2015 Pope Francis made a special declaration: “I have decided to announce an Extraordinary Jubilee which has at its centre the mercy of God. It will be a Holy Year of Mercy. We want to live in the light of the word of the Lord: ‘Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful’ (cf. Lk 6:36). And this especially applies to confessors! So much mercy!” The Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy is being celebrated from December 8th, 2015—the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 50th anniversary of the closing of Vatican II— to the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 20, 2016. With this proclamation, Pope Francis was giving Catholics all over the world an invitation to humbly participate in their faith by participating in works of mercy. Here we feature students and young alumni who are beautiful examples of living a life inspired by Christ in celebration of the Jubilee Year.
Students Welcome Refugees Several students from the CCTV crew have been intensely following the refugee situation on the news throughout the year. So, when Catholic Charities asked for volunteers to assist at a refugee welcome event themed around the Jubilee Year of Mercy, our students were ready. The students met families from Iraq, Myanmar and other places, as they helped distract children with entertaining activities and listened to the stories of the refugee families.

student at The University of Scranton. She shares her experience of traveling to the Dominican Republic on a medical mission this year. The students of CCHS assisted Christina with collecting items and supplies throughout the year to assist the mission.
This year I volunteered at the Cathedral Kitchen in Camden, New Jersey, helping prepare meals, serve dinner, and clean the dining room after the meal service. By performing this service I learned that I work well in high stress situations. I was reminded of
In March of 2015 I had the privilege of going on a medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Our medical team consisted of 26 people who ranged from nursing students to advanced practice nurses, physicians, high school students, and volunteers. The team was put together through a non-profit organization known as Island Impact that was founded by Rob and Kelli Nelson. The purpose of this mission trip was to provide free medical support to people who live in villages that lack access to medical care. Through the use of mobile clinics we were able to render care to almost 1,000 people, who otherwise would not have received medical evaluation.
my compassion for those less fortunate, and I felt privileged to have the opportunity to help them. The other volunteers at the kitchen were very nice and supportive. It felt good to be surrounded by people working towards the same mission as I. Participating in community service helps me to feel relaxed because I can take a break from my normal routine and focus on helping others.
Due to luggage limitations by the airline, many members of our team packed a week’s worth of clothing in one backpack in order to maximize checking in two suitcases of medical supplies. Together, we checked in 32 suitcases filled with 50 pounds of medications from “over-the-counter” to antibiotics, prenatal, infant, children, and adult vitamins, first aid and hygiene supplies, medical equipment, toys and much more.
This experience allowed me to appreciate how fortunate I am, as well as to realize that I don’t need to always upgrade to the latest and greatest phone or unnecessary gadget. Interacting one-on-one with the people at the Cathedral Kitchen opened my eyes to allow me to see that I don’t need these things, as they are not vital to survive. It was a rewarding experience for me, both spiritually and emotionally, and I truly feel that those people helped me more than I helped them.
Each day we would travel by truck to a new village, set up our clinic in a church or school, and rearrange pews or desks as necessary to create a ‘make-shift’ clinic. In our tiny space, individuals seeking care would receive a small piece of paper that began the process of medical evaluation. The first station consisted of vital signs, chief complaints, simple laboratory tests performed on site, and any known past medical history. The second station was an evaluation by medical professionals, who then prescribed or rendered necessary treatment. The

Corporal Works of mercy are just that. As its name implies, the Corporal Works are directed toward serving the body, or “corpus,” in Latin.
of suitcases and supplies brought by the team. With the help of experienced translators at every station, the language barrier was removed. In total we saw about 225 patients per day within a four-hour time frame. Our patient population ranged from 26 days old to 85 years old. Illnesses treated included hypertension, diabetes, prenatal care, cardiac issues requiring hospital attention, broken bones, wound care, visual problems,
Dominican-type flu, well child check-ups, and a variety infections. I chose to do this service trip because I wanted to have the opportunity to help those that are less fortunate. It allowed me to see a different world of health care and understand the true meaning of helping all people no matter what. This experience allowed me to look at myself and discover why I chose to pursue a career in nursing. I got to discover a true love of helping others and find enjoyment in making an impact in someone’s life. This trip allowed me to continue working on assessment skills, learn about different medications and illnesses, and to ensure proper care is always given to everyone regardless of cultural or environmental barriers. I am excited to take the courage and knowledge that I have gained through this trip and apply it to my nursing career.
Spiritual Works of Mercy Spiritual Works focus on the needs of the soul. Just as we should help others with their physical needs, so too must we help them with their spiritual needs. THERE ARE SEVEN SPIRITUAL WORKS OF MERCY • Admonish the sinner
THERE ARE SEVEN CORPORAL WORKS OF MERCY
• Instruct the ignorant
• Feed the hungry
• Counsel the doubtful
• Give drink to the thirsty
• Bear wrongs patiently
• Clothe the naked
• Forgive offenses willingly
• Shelter the homeless
• Comfort the afflicted
• Visit the sick
• Pray for the living and the dead
• Visit the imprisoned • Bury the dead

is free for the children and all of the money raised goes directly to their aid. During the week we taught classes in the morning and helped with sports, arts and crafts and computers in the afternoon. The children we met faced unimaginable poverty and hardship, some walking over two hours each day to get to the camp. One of our goals was to make the children as happy as possible during the time we spent with them. Taking on this type of challenge was a big responsibility however, it was a life changing experience that will stay with us for the rest of our lives. In fact, we now financially support two of the campers during their school year. We are going back again this July to hopefully make a small difference in the children’s lives.

world. This is the foundation of the International Service Program (ISP) at The University of Scranton. This mantra inspired me as I woke each morning in Quito, Ecuador alongside seven other students at The Working Boys Center in Ecuador. We had traveled there to assist Ecuadorian families seeking aid from the Center, which is known as a resource and a safe place. There, they teach skills, offer English class and share tips on how to save money. When a family saves enough money, they have a Minga, which is the building of a house for the family. I was fortunate to participate in the Minga while we were there. From playing with the kids, to building a house, visiting families in their homes, cooking meals for the families and learning about the culture and people of Ecuador, the first 10 days of June were the best 10 days of my life. The values I have learned from grade school to Camden Catholic and then onto Scranton, are going to be instilled with me for the rest of my life. Service is among the greatest of those values. I went on this trip to serve and give of myself to others. What did I come back with? I came back with knowledge about the country and culture, a sense of humbleness and gratitude, and a feeling of love. Love for the people, love for service, and love for life.

The Arts at CCHS
Pippin Brings Magic to the Stage Following the 2015 rousing run of Les Miserables on the Grandi Auditorium stage in 2015 the performing arts students had set the bar high for their 2016 production. Tasked with an entirely different type of show, featuring an introspective theme and passionate choreography, they did it with Pippin. Led once again by director Angela Leone ’04, under the guidance of Joe Farina ’73 and with the addition of Joanne Mullin McBride ’84 as choreographer, the students worked for months on the set, the song and dance numbers, and the intense themes of this show set in medieval times. Jeff Fitzpatrick ’17, playing Charlemagne (center, above) is surrounded by The Players. Jeff is the son of Brian Fitzpatrick ’87, who was also a star on the stage during his days at CCHS. Natalya Jones ’16 (right) decided to give the stage a shot for the first time this year, and ended up starring as the Leading Player to the delight of audiences.
This year’s cast was fortunate enough to experience a moment of magic with the touring cast of Broadway’s Pippin, who happened to be performing in Philadelphia just weeks prior to the opening of the Camden Catholic show. Arranged by Charles Hallanan, CCHS music director, the cast was invited to an exclusive Q&A session and acrobat demonstration at the Academy of Music with members of the touring cast. Aidan McDonald ’17, who played Pippin in the Camden Catholic production, was also invited to appear on NBC10 with Brian Flores, Pippin in the touring cast. Jeff Fitzpatrick ’17, (left) who played Charlemagne, had the opportunity to meet John Rubinstein, who originated the title role in Pippin in 1972, and took over the role of Charlemagne in the 2016 version. Sarah Robbins ’17 with Sabrina Harper (left). Both play Fastrada in their respective Pippin productions. The CCHS cast (below) at the Academy of Music with members of Broadway’s Pippin touring cast.
Aidan McDonald ’17 (left) was the perfect choice to play Pippin as he depicted the struggle to determine his purpose in life. In true CCHS performing arts fashion, more than 100 students participated in the cast, crew and band of this year’s spring musical. Bravo, students!
Honoring Mr. Gianfortune At the Thanksgiving Spirit Week Mass in November, the Class of 2015 offered a truly special memento to Mr. Joe “G” Gianfortune to thank him for his tireless dedication to the students of Camden Catholic: an arts mural dedicated in his name to welcome visitors to the Grandi Auditorium.
Arts News & Notes Sarah Robbins ’17 and Cassidy Anderson ’18 were selected for the New Jersey All-State Chorus 2016. CCHS placed third at the DeSales University Shakespeare Competition this year. Senior international student Crystal Ye won a $2,000 scholarship for her monologue performance as Lady Macbeth. Camden Catholic students have won scholarships at this competition three times, and have placed in the showcase five out of seven years of competing.

Led by Mrs. Werner-Kaiser and Mr. Corbett drama students competed at the NJDFL (New Jersey Drama and Forensics League) annual competition. CCHS was the only Catholic school to compete amongst a group of more than 250 students. Mrs. Werner-Kaiser also was a judge in the category of “Persuasive Speeches.” Theater and vocal students enjoyed an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience at Finding Neverland on Broadway in April. They were invited to an actor’s workshop led by Jonathon Ritter and Stanley Krifka, cast members in the Broadway show. They were taught a Finding Neverland song and accompanying choreography.
Band Performs at Philadelphia’s Christmas Village Camden Catholic’s Pep Band kicked off the 2015 Philadelphia Christmas Village by leading the procession throughout Love Park on Thanksgiving weekend. Prior to leading the parade around the plaza, the band gave a brief stage performance including “Jingle Bell Rock,” “White Christmas” and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town.”

CINDERELLA March 3 & 4 at 7:30 p.m. March 10 & 11 at 7:30 p.m. March 12 at 2 p.m.
The Pep Band was the featured house band for Breakfast with Bob Kelly on Fox 29’s “Good Day Philadelphia” morning show when they filmed at Amy’s Omelette House in Cherry Hill. In addition to missing some classes (including concert band!), eating a nice breakfast, and playing on television, the students had a great time with Mr. Kelly. The performance concluded with an improvised five-minute long version of the school fight song which has now become known as “The Bob Kelly Loop.” Mr. Kelly even tweeted a selfie with the band. 23
You’ve Got a Friend in Phipps He first arrived at Camden Catholic more than half a century ago, in 1963, fresh out of Villanova University to the brand new campus of Camden Catholic High School in Cherry Hill. The original campus had burned down in Camden in 1961 and the class of 1963 was the first to graduate from the “new” school. Jack’s inaugural position on the faculty was as a member of the math department, a role which he adeptly performed for the next 50-plus years. He eventually added the role of guidance counselor to his responsibilities, working under the renowned Fr. William Hart in that department as he became a pro at leading students and parents through the trials and tribulations of high school, and even more-importantly through the college admissions process. "I have admired Jack Phipps since the first day I met him in July of 1984,” says President Emeritus Msgr. Andrew Martin. “His love for and pride in Camden Catholic High School was so obvious to me that day. During the next 26 years as principal and president of CCHS I frequently sought his advice because I knew his perspective was always focused on what would be best for the students. In the teaching vocation I believe there is no one more valuable than an advocate for the student. That is Jack Phipps! Camden Catholic will hire a new counselor, we will never have another Jack Phipps.” Longtime friend Joe Galliera, interim Athletic Director and former CCHS faculty member and coach, first met Jack in 1967 when they were both young teachers at CCHS. Being Villanova alumni they became fast friends. When asked to describe Jack in a few words, Joe says “Devoted, 24
dedicated, meticulous, funny, and love. Jack has always been devoted to Pat and his family, dedicated to his students, meticulous to details when helping others, funny at lunch, and loving the simple things in life. I am very grateful for being given this opportunity to spend time with Jack during this past year at Camden Catholic. He is the brother that I never had and the friend that I am happy to have.” Mr. Phipps is without-a-doubt one of Camden Catholic’s most legendary faculty members who has been a trusted friend to thousands of students during his tenure. A friendly face, a welcoming presence, and a gifted teacher, Mr. Phipps will be missed by his colleagues yet, his influence will live on through his many the many students with whom he has worked. A fitting tribute, Mr. Phipps was honored with the Good Shepherd Award at Baccalaureate for the class of 2016 in June. This award, voted on solely by the senior class, is bestowed on the faculty member who “regularly represents the value of transmitting knowledge and demonstrates care of the students through teaching, example and positive relationships.” Congratulations, Jack! We will miss you.
Close friend and outgoing CCHS athletic director Joe Galliera congratulates Jack.
Mr. Phipps celebrates his retirement with his wife Pat, their children and grandchildren.
Hundreds of former students and colleagues offered their sentiments to Mr. Phipps upon hearing of his retirement:
Faculty News Anniversaries A few of our most cherished teachers celebrated milestone anniversaries as members of the Camden Catholic faculty this year.
“Three generations of my family have been touched by your dedication.” “CCHS will never be the same.” “You are the reason I was accepted to Villanova.”
Tony D'Antonio: 50 years
Jim Crawford: 40 years
Chris Ehrmann: 30 years
Kathy DiCamillo: 25 years at CCHS, 40 in the Diocese of Camden
“We could not have gotten where we are today without your support and guidance.” “Thank you for your patience and guidance.” “Mr. Phipps you are a wonderful, amazing, talented CCHS legend!” “Thank you for your unending kindness and seeming bottomless supply of patience and tolerance. I took to heart many words of your wisdom. I can only imagine how many young lives you altered in your career. A million thank yous!” “You never let me settle for anything less than my best and I will always be grateful for your support.” “A man who always had time for students.” “I modeled my own teaching of math from his example.” “You are one of the many reasons that Camden Catholic holds a special place in my heart.” “Tears in my eyes thinking of the tremendous impact you had on me.” “The reason I am a math teacher today.” “He laid the foundation for me to get through calculus in college, and to get into dental school.”
Keeping Busy… Donna Maccherone (English) is volunteering with Catholic Charities this summer. She is spending two afternoons a week as an English language support and enrichment teacher for teenage refugees whose families are getting general support through Catholic Charities Refugee and Immigration Services. “My students (class size is approximately 15) range in age from 7th through 12th grade. I am also working separately with a student who is entering Camden County College in the fall. Most of the students are from Burma; a few are from Ethiopia. They are really bright kids, charming and witty. They speak and understand English quite well, but they need to strengthen reading and writing skills in order to keep up in mainstream classrooms,” says Donna. Theresa Gardner ’18 is a math tutor in the same program…Nancy Werner-Kaiser (English) is leading a writing initiative at Rowan College of Burlington County…Dianne Heck (Science) led her biology students’ participation in the “NJ Environthon.” After months of preparation and a night of sleep under the stars, four sophomores, David Nguyen, Jacob Weismer, Shane Costello, and Wei Zhang, placed second of all new teams! The competition prepares high school students with the knowledge and skills to be young leaders, decision makers and problem solvers of today's natural resources concerns. Preparation sessions included listening to bird calls, identifying freshwater macroinvertebrates in order to determine a stream's health, identifying soil types for determining best use of land, measuring trees' height and diameter to calculate how much lumber could be produced by the trees…Lindsey Murphy (Library) continues to lead the Cathedral Scholars program in pursuits beyond the walls of CCHS. The Scholars made several excursions this year, including to the Mutter Museum, Reading Terminal Market and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. 25
Fighting Irish Athletics
Girls Lacrosse players present Aryn McCormick and Seamus Cullen with gifts at the Trooper Cullen dedication game Girls Lacrosse lost one of its biggest fans when New Jersey State Trooper Sean Cullen was killed in a tragic accident while on duty in March. Sean's fiance Aryn McCormick is a 2002 CCHS graduate and a former Irish lacrosse coach. Aryn and Sean continued to be great supporters of the team after she finished coaching, bringing their son Seamus along to games to cheer on the girls. This was a huge loss for the Camden Catholic family. In remembrance of Sean, and in support of Aryn and Seanâ€™s family, the team dedicated their game against Cherry Hill East to them. They wore blue ribbons in their hair, raised funds to donate to the family, and presented Aryn and Seamus with special gifts on behalf of the team. We continue to keep the Cullen and McCormick families in our daily prayers.

Thank You Marlene Grimes ’86,
Athletic Milestones TRACK: the 4x400 Relay of Zarria Williams, Moriah Hall, Taiah Thornton and Holly Bednarek won the South Jersey Small School Division Championship at Penn Relays. This is Camden Catholic’s very first win at the historic national track championship at the University of Pennsylvania.
FOOTBALL: Second year coach Nick Strom and a strong group of senior leadership led the team to a 9-1 season and to the West Jersey Football League Championship. Highlights of the season were the team’s thrilling victory over second-ranked Camden High School on October 10, 21-16 and the Thanksgiving Day win over rival Paul VI 30-9.
SOFTBALL: Ashley Surgner ’16 batted her 100th hit during the Non-Public Group A South quarterfinal at Notre Dame.
Athletic Director, Coach and Mentor For almost 10 years Ms. Grimes was an integral member of the Camden Catholic family as she led our athletic department and our more than 20 athletic programs. Under her leadership our teams brought home several conference championships, competed at the highest level in the state tournament, volleyball was implemented as a varsity sport, over 100 graduates received college athletic scholarships, and the list goes on. Ms. Grimes was not only a devoted athletic director, but she was also an assistant girls basketball coach for many years and, as a CCHS alumna and former player, was a true mentor for so many young women on the team. She was awarded the Ted Hampton “Person of the Year” Award by the boys basketball program in 2014 for her many contributions to the school, and tireless work on behalf of the coaches and teams over the years. Thank you for your service, Marlene! Continued on next page
Athletic Milestones (continued) BASEBALL: led by 13 seniors and alumnus coach Bob Bergholtz ’95, the Camden Catholic baseball team made this a season to remember. Ranked among the top programs in South Jersey throughout the year, the Fighting Irish finished the season 19-8-1. Among the most exciting wins were the Oakcrest Tournament championship, the Rancocas Valley Tournament championship (in which Nolan Gerold brought home the MVP trophy), the 11-inning state tournament game vs. Paul VI and the upset of Red Bank Catholic in the SJ semifinal. Jay Crusemire ’16, Nolan Gerold ’16 and Billy Eisler ’17 were named to the Carpenter Cup team, among many other honors.
GIRLS BASKETBALL: Coach Palladino made history with win number 600 as the Irish girls defeated Shawnee in the home opener of the 2015-16 season. What an amazing accomplishment for an Irish legend!
She is only the second coach to achieve such a feat in South Jersey. Dozens of alumni players joined her to celebrate as she was overcome with emotion at the final buzzer. Coach Palladino was also inducted into the Camden County Sports Hall of Fame in October. Congratulations Coach!
LACROSSE: Sophomore lax star Saige-Lyn Gidzinski scored her 100th goal vs. Collinsgwood, senior Chloe Potillo (College of New Jersey) scored her 100th goal during an emotional matchup vs. Cherry Hill East in the Trooper Cullen dedication game, and senior Khaia Baranowski (Villanova University) made her 700th save as goalie during an April game at Northern Burlington. Coach Bridget Bigley Sipera ’02 was named Conference Coach of the Year by NJ.com as she led the team to a competitive run in the state tournament, upsetting Mount Saint Mary’s in the quarterfinal before falling in triple overtime to Shore Regional in the semifinal.
The Irish were led by several talented seniors, including Taiah Thornton and Julia Braungart, who both scored their 1,000th points during their final season in the green and white. The team won the annual Boardwalk Classic in Wildwood in December and was ranked among the top teams in South Jersey throughout the entire season. GIRLS & BOYS SOCCER dominated Pennsauken in the annual Rudderow Cup. The girls won 4-0 with two goals from Danielle Rooney and one apiece from Benedetta Seffino ’16 and Audrey Esposito ’17. Goalie Kate Deutsch ’18 had her first shutout this season. Deutsch also had the most saves in the state of New Jersey for the 2015 season. The boys team won 4-2 with Christian Belz ’18 scoring three goals and Antonio Spinosi ’17 with one goal.
WRESTLING: Mark McCormick ’16 made history becoming a Region 7 Champ all four years of high school! He is only the 21st wrestler in the state of New Jersey to complete this feat. Freshman Lucas Revano was also a Region 7 champion this year. BOYS BASKETBALL traveled to Union Catholic in the state tournament and although they fell to a talented team, they were able to reconnect with Union Catholic president and Camden Catholic Hall of Famer Sister Percy Lee Hart ’52.

FINDING YOUR PURPOSE:
Leadership Academy Elevates Academic Experience In 2013 CCHS alumnus and faculty member Gabe Paoletti ’01 founded the Leadership Academy at Camden Catholic High School on the basis of five core values: faith, excellence, creativity, unity and passion. Mr. Paoletti and the administration were confident that this was a way to prepare our students to be successful leaders in the 21st Century, presented in a completely unique way for a high school environment. Three years later the Academy is thriving, having recently enrolled over 100 students for its scholar track. The Leadership Academy focuses on training students in a set of skills and competencies which allow them to explore knowledge beyond the fundamental lessons of traditional education. Based in the research of Positive Psychology and Resilience, the Leadership Academy provides students with a menu of Leadership Modules that enable them to build this additional skill set. Each student is required to complete two modules during their four years of high school.

CC: Why did you choose Camden Catholic High School? CS: Neither Mary nor I are graduates of Camden Catholic High School and only recently have been involved with the school. As we learned more, we have been very impressed with the leadership, the staff and the long term goals of the school. Camden Catholic High School has been providing education since 1887. Clearly, they must be doing all the right things to maintain an educational institution for almost 130 years. Their mission statement says it all “educating young men and women spiritually, academically, socially and physically in a faith community to develop as lifelong learners and leaders in a global society in the Catholic tradition.” CC: Why high school students? CS: Since retiring, Mary and I have been involved with organizations and schools that provide education and leadership skills to young people. Mary supports the Alice Paul Institute in their mission for gender equality and to develop the future generations of leaders. I have been involved with the Catholic Partnership Schools, providing education to grade school children of Camden. Through our work we have seen the importance of continuing quality education after grade school and through the high school years. High school prepares students for the future and lays the foundation for the achievement of their longer term educational and career goals.
Legacy Giving: An Explanation www.cchslegacy.org Why consider legacy giving? Legacy giving provides a time-honored method for a donor to express generosity and commitment to Camden Catholic High School, while benefiting both the donor and the School. Depending on the legacy giving vehicle, donors may continue to enjoy income and other benefits while making a gift. In addition, the federal tax code provides for various legacy gift instruments, which may offer benefits that may favorably affect a donor’s present and future income and estate taxes. Gifts We Gratefully Accept Camden Catholic High School accepts gifts for the purpose of furthering its mission. Legacy gifts can come in the form of a deferred gift, a gift where the School benefits from a remainder interest, or a combination of the two. The available options include:
Final Words from the Sailes:
Mary and I have been fortunate in many ways, as such, we have taken opportunities to give back, to share and to set an example for family, friends and others. Hopefully our legacy plan will not only positively impact the students of Camden Catholic High School but will also provide an example for others to follow.
• Charitable Gift Annuities • Charitable Remainder Trusts • Real Property • Life Insurance Recognition of Gifts Execution of a legacy gift agreement immediately entitles the donor to recognition as part of the School’s 1887 Legacy Society.

Information Commons Library Renovation Campaign for the Future: Capital Campaign Update By Mary Whipkey, President
“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” -John F. Kennedy To ensure we don’t “miss the future,” the trustees of Camden Catholic High School have determined we must make changes to our building to ensure future generations receive an education that is relevant to our increasingly digital and collaborative world. In 2013, the school engaged in its first ever $6 million campaign which includes three key facets: $2 million for the Annual Fund; $2 million for scholarship and $2 million for capital projects. In 2014 the first capital project was initiated, the renovation of the cafeteria into the John Pisa Dining Hall. Dedicated in February 2015, the Pisa Dining Hall is now a mark of pride for our students. It is a clean, contemporary and friendly space which is home to everything from daily meals to class reunions. Mr. Pisa ’74 gave back to his alma mater in order to provide space in which students can build community and friendships, and they are doing just that. The library is now undergoing a similar transformation, thanks to con50
tinued investment from our alumni and donors. During the summer of 2016, it will be converted into the Information Commons – a place where students can exchange ideas and collaborate on academic projects. The Commons will accommodate a large classroom space, several smaller meeting areas, presentation areas, and individual quiet nooks. This transformation reflects an international shift in the use of library spaces. As you read about the history of the CCHS library (see sidebar), many of you understand the traditional learning and research space. Although this style of learning was amenable to past generations of students, businesses today are looking for critical thinkers, problem solvers, and collaborative learners. The trustees and administration recognize this shift, and through the campaign plan, are organizing this to happen in our new Ethel Mae Hocker Information Commons. The Ethel Mae Hocker Foundation is a loyal and supportive partner to Camden Catholic High School through the kindness of the Hocker family: Rich, his wife Martha, daughter Kirsten, and her husband Paul Mason ’98. They have sponsored numerous scholarship students at Camden Catholic since 2010. The Hockers know the importance of a quality 21st Century education and the need for educational advancement for the success of students. Their generous support of the campaign has allowed for the Information Commons initiative to gain momentum and become reality. The $1.2 million project will be completed in two phases. Phase 1: summer 2016, includes wall demolition, installation of new electrical systems to support enhanced technology, new lighting, acoustic panels, and air conditioning. Phase 2: summer 2017, includes new windows, furniture, media CCHS Magazine
equipment, and finishing touches to enhance the space. The new footprint also includes space previously occupied by an adjacent classroom and computer lab (formerly Home Economics rooms).
One of our most consistent champions, and a Catholic school educator himself, Msgr. Bob McDermott ’60 is an exemplary alumnus who continues to live by the Camden Catholic ideals of Honor, Faith and Loyalty. One of the highlights of Phase I will be the construction of the Msgr. Bob McDermott Collaborative Learning Center, a classroom fitted with computers for all students and audiovisual equipment to enhance the critical thinking experience. Teachers will use this space for collaborative and active learning to promote studentdriven discovery, inquiry, and innovation. Our plan for the 2016-2017 school year is to repurpose the current furniture until funds become available through donations and pledge payments to purchase new furniture in Phase 2. The CCHS Parents Association, CCHS Student Government, and the Class of 2016 have been gracious to donate $25,000 toward the purchase of the librarian’s new help desk and various other furniture. We are currently asking legacy families for donations to help purchase sections of furniture, as well as asking reunion groups to make a donation in the name of their class to help with these purchases. Donations in honor of or in memory of loved ones are also accepted and are a lasting way to remember them.

History of the Camden Catholic Library By Patricia Sariego Brown ’66, CCHS Librarian, Hall of Fame Inductee 2016
1950s Besides myself, Sister Mary Winifred, RSM (Katherine Thomas) was the only librarian at CCHS that I know of. She had a degree from Trenton State (now The College of New Jersey) prior to entering the Mercies and taught at CCHS (Camden) in the 1950s. She received her Master’s degree from Drexel (then the Institute of Technology). She was the librarian prior to the fire April 17, 1960. Archbishop Damiano was so anxious for her to be the librarian at the “new school” in Cherry Hill, that he paid her salary during the construction. The library didn’t open right away. Sister spent the year salvaging equipment and resources from Camden, directing volunteers to set up the new site, and working at the State Library, writing policies and standards for school libraries throughout the state. 1960s In the 1960s, the CCHS library was very traditional. Our resources were books, magazines, films, filmstrips, records and audio tapes. We spent a great deal of time just processing materials. Each item had at least 3 catalog cards (author, title, subject), which were typed in house. 1970s In the 1970s the library was named a Demonstration Library for the State of New Jersey. Sister and I, (in a very minor role) acted as mentors and a kind of resource for school librarians with questions. The 70s also saw the start of grant money, particularly ESEA Title II, IV. Most of the money was used to bring technology into the school. Sister studied reprographics at USC one summer and the outcome was a huge Xerox copier that could reproduce microfilm articles. We had back issues of important magazines and the NEW YORK TIMES dating back to the Civil War. This was significant. Libraries weren’t just for books anymore. Students could use individual microfilm readers, cassette, film and loop players to broaden their research.
1980s-2000s In the 80s libraries were starting to use computers to alleviate some of the managerial aspects. The CCHS library first purchased an Apple IIe to print multiple catalog cards (it had no memory). As the technology advanced, so did the benefits. We created AV Guides so departments could have access to the available materials for lesson plans. Hard drives meant card catalogs, modems meant long distance communication and sharing. Educational games, MS Office, scanning, the internet, websites, subject databases (like EBSCOHOST) were part of the 1990s. The 2000s saw the enhancement of speed, security and video displays with faculty bulletin boards, online lesson plans, online tests, skyping, distance learning, white boards, eBooks and playaways. 2010-current (Update by Mrs. Lindsey Murphy, Librarian) “Seven years ago I walked into the CCHS Library and knew I had big shoes to fill following Sister Winifred and Mrs. Brown,” says CCHS Librarian Lindsey Murphy. “In my seven years I have tried to maintain the tradition that these two women created in maintaining an up-to-date library.” Mrs. Murphy says that in preparation for the major renovation the print collection has been reduced to only keep those titles that are relevant to today’s students and faculty. “We have gradually increased the number of computers, scanners and printers to meet the ever increasing technology needs of our students and always try to keep the library open and accessible to all students for the entire school day.” Starting this fall the Information Commons will be the place for all students, faculty and staff to use state of the art technology, work as individuals and in groups and utilize both the print and ever growing electronic collections. The Information Commons, along with our faculty, will create a graduate that is prepared to enter the high tech, creative world that awaits them.

JOIN US! There are so many ways to make a difference. Which will you choose?
THE ANNUAL FUND The greatest number of gifts to CCHS are unrestricted cash donations to the Annual Fund. Annual Fund gifts can also be restricted to tuition assistance, arts or athletics, including specific sports. These gifts make strides toward helping us maintain a competitive value proposition for families seeking a Catholic education for their children.
The Shamrock Society The Shamrock Society is our giving club for donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the Annual Fund each year. Members of this society send an outward message that they know Camden Catholic and its students are a worthy investment.
Tuition Assistance Approximately one third of our students receive some form of tuition assistance based on a standardized assessment of financial need. Your gifts help each of our families continue to choose Catholic education. All recipients are chosen based upon academic performance and demonstrated financial need. Why Tuition Assistance Matters For years, the Sisters of Mercy were able to contribute their services to Camden Catholic High School to reduce the cost of tuition, thereby making a Catholic education affordable for families. Today, the rising costs of healthcare and technology attribute to a higher cost of education, and tuition must be increased accordingly. What can I do? • Contribute to tuition assistance and you will afford a student the opportunity to find themselves, uncover talents, grow academically and spiritually, and develop leadership skills for a 21st century world. • Named scholarships can both support a student and honor a living individual, family, group, or memorialize a loved one.
Other Ways To Contribute Stock – Camden Catholic accepts gifts of securities, please contact the Advancement Office for required forms. Matching Gifts- Many corporations now support private secondary education through matching gifts. Check to see if your company offers a matching gift program, and multiply the impact you’re already making at Camden Catholic. In Memoriam - You, or your family, can choose to recommend gifts to Camden Catholic in lieu of flowers within an obituary. If you wish the gifts to be restricted to a specific purpose please contact the Advancement Office at the time of the obituary’s publication.
CAPITAL PROJECTS Our current capital project, the Ethel Mae Hocker Information Commons, is under way this summer and will be completed in the summer of 2017. Support is still needed as we populate the Commons with new furniture and technology over the next several months. Annual Fund gifts are needed and depended upon, but we also need to make capital improvements for the longevity of our campus. We ask you, or your family, to consider a pledge to capital projects. See pages 50-51 for more about our capital projects.
