Beyond the Gates



M atthew 16 18 early two millennia ago,Jesus bestowed upon his disdple St Peter the keys to heaven, With this act the gates of heaven were opened to allow all of humanity to enter God’s kingdom. Similariy, since its establishment in 1872, St. fitter's Preparatory School has opened Us gales to educate several generations of students. From the first moment that they enter the grounds of Grand & Warren, Rep students are nurtured by the entire ftep community. St Peter’r Prep fosters growth in its students, teaching them how to become “competent, compassionate, and conscientious" individuals. The gates of St Peter’s provide security to ftep students, allowing them to grow freely within its bounds. Prep gradually guides its students to un­ derstand the world beyond the gates so that they may be prepared for life after ftep. Just asJesus had taught St Peter everything that he needed to know before giving him the keys to the gates of heaven, St Peter’s Pnp educates a student in all of die aspects that comprise a fineJesuit man be­ fore giving him the keys necessary for graduation and entrance to die outside work!

very year, over 200 new students enter the halls of Prep, bringing to Prep unique personalities, diverse perspectives, and new talents. These young men change the lives of others at Prep, but it is the collective effort of family, friends, faculty, administrators, coaches, and alumni that give direction to Prep students. These key holders slowly shape the lives of the students. The keys themselves-among them academics, athletics, extracurricular activities, community involvement, religious opportunities m g0 t ^

For the graduating class o f2005, freshman year began with a troubling start. On the second day of their high school career, they witnessed, along with the rest of the world, the horrific 9/11 terrorist attacks. These promising young men had just begun a new stage in their lives when this event changed their lives forever. However, in this period of anger, pain, confusion, and chaos, St. Peter’s Prep protected its students within itsgates and extended such protection to the victims and survivors of the attacks in true Prep fashion.

Entering Prep’s gates for the first time, each and every student isjust another face in the crowd. An unknown future lies ahead. As the student explores Grand <2?Warren, he looks for a positive figure that embodies the characteristics of a fine Prep man. For many this former Prep student embodies those ideals. A scholar of history, this teacher educates many students that enter and leave Prep. The chairman ofhis department, he teaches World Civilizations to freshmen, United States History I tojuniors, and The Irish Experience to seniors. This teacher instills in his students the passion for learning yet he also knows the importance of having a good time and sharing a laugh. Often a student or teacher can hear the boisterous clapping competitions that take place on the 2ndfloor of Hogan Hall. As many of his students attest, he makes learning an enjoyable activity. More than just a teacher, he stresses the value of being an accomplished all-around person. He knows that an ideal Prep graduate needs all the keys to have access to the world outside Grand <2?Warren. Therefore he leads by example and shows his students how to work hard at their studies, to be dedicated and persevering on the athletic field, and to be caring and compassionate in the world. Easily recognized by his warm smile and hearty laugh, he significantlyinfluences Prep outside the classroom. He moderated the Celtic Qub in previous years. Aware of national issues that need to be addressed, he guides Prep men in the “Right to Life” campaign as moderator of the Prolife Society. He also organizes the intramural competitions so that more Prep students can get involved in friendly homeroom rivalries. A soccer player himself during his time at Prep, he coaches thejV soccer team, leading them to much success for eight straight years. A “man for and with others,” he knows how to do it all. His enthusiasm for lifeis readily apparent to whoever is in his presence. His powerful spirit pervades the halls of Prep, and he often leads students in singing the “Pride and Glory” at the end of academic convocations. A very religious, forthright, and caring individual, this epitome of a fine Prep man teaches both students and faculty how to live. Prep has been a home for him ever since he entered its gates in 1988, and he has made it more of a home for countless others who have entered and left Prep ever since. For these reasons, the class of 2005 dedicates the Petrean to our teacher, coach friend, and brother, Mr. Brian McCabe, ‘92.

Academics Divii


Vfjjrm' ~

jdents attain many keys that enable them ^m ove beyond the gates of Prep, but Fie keys from core academic disciplines lay the foundation for school itself. Without courses like Psychology, Gothic Literature, Fiction to Film, Imperialism, Ceramics, and even the more basic courses like Chemistry and Geometry, Prep would not exist. Each one of these courses, from the general requisite courses to the unique optional elective courses, serves as a key that opens the gates to a promising future in college and beyond. In addition, unique keys issued via the Study Abroad Program help to create a more complete and well-rounded education. Moreover, these keys are not static in their design; new courses replace old ones, and innovations in the curriculum expand the numbers of keys that Prep students collect on their four-yearjourney. For example, the Science Department has revamped their entire curriculum by having an interactive lab-based Physics freshman course begin the traditional high school route. Such changes assure that Prep remain abreast of the most innovative curricula and teaching techniques, which, in turn, promise many the continual creation of new keys.

Catholic freshmen are given a foundation to their faithby studyingthe Old Testament and the Sacra­ ments, while nonCatholics learn about different world religions. In sophomore year, students focus their studies on the New Testament and hu­ man morality. Juniors then take a semester-long course on the church since the Sec­ ond Vatican Council; the other semester is a course in socialjustice, looking at con­ troversial social issues faced

The founding principle of all education is heavy concentration on the study ofEnglish language and lit­ erature; such a principle is evident in the St Peters Rep English Department's raison d’etre. In freshman year, one takes a course in founda­ tional writing or an honors course in the basic literaiy genres. In sophomore year, students take a select course in American Literature, again with an honors course that covers additional read­ ing. Lnjunior year students take a survey course in Brit­ ish literature, whereby they read such Anglo-Saxon classics as Beowulfand such standards as Hamlet. Of­ fered for the first time this year, however, is an alter­ nate junior course: AP En­ glish Language, a course

with a heavy secondsemester concentration on prepa­ ration for the linguistics-in­ tensive AP exam adminis­ tered in May. In senioryear, students may select among the many offered electives, including Dr. Richard Kennedy’s Fiction Into Elm and Mr. Matt Klarmann’s Gothic Literature. Also, an­ other AP course is offered: AP English literature. The English Depart­ ment, like other depart­ ments, constantlyundergoes change. In addition to the curriculum change, two new members of the Prep teaching community, Ms. Annie Glackin and Ms. Bonny Eaton, have taken on the responsibility of edu­ cating students in English. Still, the department has its share of veterans, including a few with decades of expe­ rience. Such an amalgam of both young and old pro­ vides a superb learning environmentforyears to come.

In Mr. McCabe’s words: “We [want] to make history rel­ evant by observing how certain standards estab­ lished in the past change as society changes.” All of the members of the de­ partment worked hard to enlighten their students and open gateways from the past to the present.

With new depart­ ment chairperson Mr. James Hollywood ‘66 at the helm, teachers and stu­ dents alike embarked on ajoumey towards under­ standing the nuances and intricacies of numbers. Although math is a three-year requirement, many seniors take a math course to gain an edge in the college rush. Most freshmen begin with Al­ gebra 1, a course involv­ ing basic mathematical functions as solving qua­ dratics and graphing equations using slope-intercept form. In Geom­ etry, sophomores learn to use logical and deductive reasoning to organize and write two-column proofs. In junior year, stu­ dents take Algebra % & Trigonometry, a course that builds on the fountj

Finally, in se­ nior year, many electives are offered, including Discrete Math, Procalculus, AP Statistics, t|$te; newly revamped E||>* nomics course, C o j||l puter Sciences, and AP Calculus. In addition, honors courses are avail­ able for all three under­ classmen math classellll According to Mfc Hollywood, the depart­ mental goals included “integrating new teach­ ers into the team, getting more juniors interested in senior electives, and ex­ panding the availability of technology.”

art of any SaintPeter’s Prepstudents education is not only that of his mind, but also ofhis body, whether it be through the grueling sports in which he can participate, or through the light-hearted lunchtime intramurals in which he can play or watch. Students gained keys from building strong bodies, and also through the strongbonds made in hs!6agfriendships with teammates. The thrill of ivmningprovides any athlete with &keyto last a lifetime; memories. The distress of losing teaches one even more through the lessons learned. Prep men created many memories during the year, the VarsityJV. and Freshman P(X)tball teams all ended fee season wife amazingrecords; the Cross Countryteam again dominatedin championship meets, which continued through to the Indoor Track team, and saw four runners head to Nationals for the first time; the Swimming team crushed its opponents in another award-winning season, stealing a win at the NfSIAA tournament; even the Varsity Basketball team earned a place in fee HQAA playoffs. Each memory made and every lesson learned from Prep Athletics gives Prep students the ability to use their keys to open the^ates to a woiid outside ofPrep,where both a sound mind and sound body make for a truly holistic person.

his season marked a year of resilience for the JV Soccer team. Finishing the season with a 6-8 record, the team was forced to cope with the advancement of several key players to the varsity level for much of the season. Under the direction of Coaches Brian McCabe and Jose Vilarino, the team worked tirelessly to compensate for the departure of these valuable teammates, employing a strat­ egy that depended on substitutions allowing everyone on the team the opportunity to play. Several players, such as sophomores Andrew Cevasco, Gianfranco Wilbeck, Colin Callahan, and freshman Keenan McRae, assumed impor­ tant roles on the team in the absence of the players. As the season progressed, the team grew stronger with every game, win or loss. The players, some unfamiliar with each other at the start of the season, formed a strong bond of togetherness throughout the season, especially in the face of the unique challenges posed to the team, which culminated in a final game victory versus St. Anthony’s with a score of 50. This unity of the players propelled the team into a second place finish in an invitational tournament. Said sophomore Walter Stacey, “We had a great time throughout the entire season. I’m looking forward to next year.”

ne word comes to mind when speaking of this year’s Prep Varsity Football: team. Despite certain reservations and challenging situations, the team remained a united force, proving from the season opening win against rival Hudson Catholic to the difficuk victory against North Bergen to the playofis at the end of the season, that the team was in the game to win together, rallying support and confidence among the players. In another impressive season, Varsity Football continued its winning streak by acquiring its fifth county title in a row. Complet­ ing the season with a record of 10-1, the Marauders once again proved to be a contender for the Group 4 Parochial State Cham­ pionship. Led by senior captains runningback RashawnJackson, tailback Mchael Brown, offensive linemenjoseph Hannon and Michael Smith along with all-star athletes senior quarterback Ryan Boysen, sophomore tailback Kee-Ayre Griffin, and outside line­ backer William Thompson, the team remained undefeated until, in a series of unfortunate mishaps, they were derailed by Bergen Catholic, in a 45-20 loss. Noted senior Brian Lauer, “We worked really hard and came together as a team, which helped us win another county champi­ onship.” In addition, junior Danjulian added, “Despite the chal­ lenges that confronted us this year, we were able to pull through. ‘A battle belongs to the warrior’s soul,’ and the Varsity Football team definitely proved that”

merging yet again as a prevailingforcc in Hudson (dainty, the J V Footbatt team completed its season with a 7-2 record, and provided opportunities for underclassmen to gain recognition and experience. Throughout an intense practice schedule and rigorous training, a strong bond form ed among the players. The connection undoubtedly strengthened the team’s unity, which led them through a season abound with ad­ versities that tested their fortitude. From the first game, theJV squad revealed their intentions of having another successful season. From the dominating wins over Hudson Catholic, Dickinson, and North Bergen to the rallying efforts against Bayonne, this season truly proved to be a test of resilience for theJV team J V playmakers such as sophomore fullback and middle line backer Steven Pankiewicz, sophom ore quarterback Michael Clarice, sophomore tight end and defensive lineman Ravi Pradhanang, and junior tailback Kevin Guarini assured the

team m any successes under the leadership of C oaches Paul Giorgio a n d Stuart Qutterbuck. T he promising results of the J V Football team offer a glimpse into the future of another successful varsity program. Sophomore Steven Pankiewicz said that “this year’sJ V season w asagrealleam ing expe­ rience, which provided a lot of opportunity for guys to get their nam e out, to get no­ ticed, and to have a shot at playing at the varsity level nextyear.” Like theJV leaiders, the Freshman Foot­ ball team also became a powerhouse within H udson County with its 9-0 record, prov­ ing that teamwork played a major role in a team’s success. T he intense practice sched­ ule helped the team gel early in the season. Despite the feet that the players knew very little of each other prior to the season, they become fast friends when confronted with grueling double session practices and sum­ m er training camp in upstate New York. Emerging from the camp, die team proved insurmountable. Although the first game showed a narrow win of 7*6 over t ludson

Cathblic, the early win over a key rival, boosted the team’s confidence and helped lead them to their successive victories, espe­ cially over rivals Bayonne and Noilh Bergen Freshman captain Will Hill became an integral team leader and helped lead R ep to m any of its victories. A s quarterback and safety, Hill dominated the field with his alt around talent for the game by running long and hitting hard. In addition, Hill helped pump up his teammates with the other cap­ tains. Other key players included fieshman tailback and middle line backerjoe Alvarez, freshman fullback and middle line backer Anthony Giannobile, freshman defensive tackle and center Dennis Figueroa, and fresh­ m an tailback, wide receiver, and centerback Eric Cirino. Coupled with the overall skill of h e group and Coach Ed Roselle’s ability to harmonize the newcomers, the team gave Hudson County a pleasant taste of what is to come in the future of Prep football. Fresh m an Anthony Giannobile expressed, “We had a great year and we are looking for­ ward U) having our shot: as senior's."

his year’s Prep Cross Country season proved to be the team’s best in over six years. The new addition of Mr. Paul Laracy, a former Prep runner, as an assistant coach gave this year’s team a new source of instruction and expertise, along with the aid ofveteran Coach Mike Burgess. Led by senior co-captains Daniel Pata and Sebastian Fidelus, the Cross Country team started training early in the summer with a strict training regimen in addition to attending two camps in August Clinching the South Hudson, City, and County Champion­ ship, the Marauders surpassed the expectations of many by de­ throning Memorial as county champions. However, the expected victory in the HCTCA Championship was spoiled by a twopoint loss in one of the most exciting races in recent history. Seniors Dan Pata and Sebastian Fidelus had amazing seasons on the individual level, placing highly in major state invitationals. Pata ran for 11th place at the McQuaid Invitational at Rochester; as well, he won the South Hudson Championship. Rdelus placed 6th and 7th at invitationals early on and capped off a solid season with a 19th place finish at the state sectional meet, missing the Meet of Champions by less than 20 seconds. Senior Sebastian Rdelus said of the team’s future: “Prep Cross Country faces quite a task in maintaining such a high standard of excellence in the future.”

The team was led by sophomoresJonathan Georges (center)Jo se p h Valenti (forward), Matthew Meehan (guard), and juniors Chase Freeman (guard), and Ryan Gelchion (guard). The team triumphed against rivals Bayonne and Emerson and participated in the Rahway Christmas Tournament and the Ramapo Tournament, making it to the semifinals in both instances, in part because of the wellrounded nature, versatility, speed, and size of theJV team. Junior Free­ m an recalled, “We had a good season, under the leadership of Coach Bruckner. We had a great record thanks to our hard work that will translate into the Varsity team next year.” The Freshmen Basketball team got off to a rough start this season while the new members took some time to develop good chemistry.

Varsity Hockey, coming off a State Finals appearance last year, quickly reestablished itself as a contender during | the season. They began with a summer trip to Florida for / camp, where they usually played games to get into shape for the season. Despite no games being played due to Hurricane Charlie, the team managed to get in a helpful bonding experience and the m uch needed practice. The team started the season with an un­ eventful 2-3-1 record before traveling to Maine to participate in a tournam ent “It was a great confidence boost because our’s was low at the time, and going undefeated against three good teams got us back on track,” commented seniorjoshua Esformes (center), who scored 26 goals and had 15 assists. Soon after the tournament, the team secured key ties against rivals, Delbarton and Seton Hall Prep. T he team moved up into the competitive Gordon Conference, and went on to its first Gordon Cup Tournament The team beat Seton Hall Prep in a suspenseful overtime in the first round, but lost to Delbarton in the second round. “Moving up into the Gordon Conference was tough, but playing the state’s best night-in and night-out was a positive experience for the team,” senior Esformes commented. The team finished the season with an 11-8-6 record, led by seniors captain Matthew Miller (defense), who scored 25 goals, and assistant captains Anthony Facciponte (defense) and Ryan McDonald (center), and with senior Giancarlo Capodanno (left wing), who led the team with an astonishing 33 goals and 16 assists, and Philip Rodino (goalie), who allowed only 60 goals out of 578 attempts. The record-breaking season continued in full force until the team finally lost to Seton Hall Prep in the NfSIAA playoffs, but the team was not without its enor­ mous triumphs and successes.

rep’sJunior Varsity Hockey team proved to be a force with whom to be reckoned in the ranks of the NJSIAA H ie team saw an influx of new and young players and the return of last year’s experienced veterans, each bringing their own unique skill and spirit into the rink. Although the majority of the team was comprised of younger players, veterans’ contributions did not go unnoticed. Much of the team’s success was carried by junior captains Connor Purcell, and seniors Michael Long (center) and Edward Gardner (defense), who helped to teach, motivate, and inspire the younger play­ ers. The team successfully finished the season with an admirable record of 9-8-1, triumphing against the likes of tough competitors Fairlawn, Nutley, Middletown North, and Point Pleasant Key players throughout the successful season were goal leaders senior Long, who also led the team in assists, and freshman Lance Aligo (right wing), who came second in assists and himself scored 13 goals. Senior Gardner, and freshmen Gregory Morrissey (wing) and Bryan Robinson (left wing) all finished the season with impressive records. In the net, senior Patrick Mooney, juniorjoshua Dybus, and sophomore Kevin Fox allowed only 62 goals out of 501 attempts in all games played. Offensively and defensively, the young team proved its status as a rising star in the local hockey league. Junior Purcell commented, “During the season theJV program played a challenging schedule and through a lot of hard work we were able to compete with some of the best teams in the entire state.” With the prospect of a promising future, the young players of th eJV Hockey team could be assured of continuing Prep’s successful hockey program.

A North Bergen wrestler tries to retaliate as sophomore Bryan Rohrman avoids a blow to the nose and pulls his leg to leave his opponent vulnerable.

Prep Wrestling Team experienced numerous, tough o b stades throughout their season. Overall the team was very m young, namely, they only had four seniors. The relative inexperience of the younger players made for a challenging season, but offered hope for a strong rising class of Prep wrestlers. The group was led by senior captions Sean O ’Grady (119) and Michael Rohrman (140), who incessantly helped to train their younger teammates and who always encouraged the grapplers even in the face of bitter defeat Working with the captains were other essential veteran team members who led the team, including seniorJoseph Pizzi (130), and juniors Henri DeFrance (160), Michael Moschovas (171), Kevin Sankal (125), Matthew Trost (189), and Raphael ZaM (152). These dedicated players, who all had seen their share of the mats since freshman year, along with the other young men, helped to forge a tightly knit group that grew as the season progressed. The team participated in the ever-competitive Mustang Classic, District 16, and the Dover Holiday Tournament, Region 4. The re­ gional participants included sophomore Bryan Rohrman (112), junior Sankal, senior O ’Grady, senior Rohrman, sophomore Victor Stanziale (145), juniors DeFrance and Trost, and senior Michael Smith (275). Despite a 10-12 record, two wrestlers were chosen for the State Tourna­ ment; seniors O ’Grady and Rohrman surpassed all expectations. H ie challenging season ended on a positive note when senior O ’Grady became the first wrestler in Prep history to have over 100 pins in his four-year career. Senior Smith recounted, “During the season, built on a strong foundation, our young team showed great potential.” The lessons imparted by the seniors will benefit these future wrestlers. M

he Prep Swimming team’s season was significantly different from any of year’s past One big difference was in the form of the new head coach, Mr. Frank Thomson, and the new assistant coach, Mr. Matthew KnitteL Mr. Thomson, with Mr. Knittel’s aid, created and trained a weE-balanced and disciplined team The team achieved a rank of 11 on the Star Ledger's top 20 teams in New Jersey by beating other state ranked teams such as Delbarton and Rngry. The team qualified for the State Tournament, but was knocked out in the first round by long-time rival, Seton Hall Prep. Through continued practice of the dedicated members the team managed to lose only two dual meets all season, first to S t Joseph’s of Metuchen and then to Seton Hall Prep. They compensated their two losses by winning the Jersey City Championships, snatching all three relay records. Also, the team won die North Jersey State Sectionals Championships by defeating Bergen Catholic. The swimmers ended their season by running away with the Hudson County Championship tide by scoring over 200 points. At the meet, the 400 Freestyle relay captured the record by clocking in at 3:26, which qualified the relay team for the Meet of Champions. Junior captain Hector Flores ex­ pressed, “I was so proud of the team and how we came together throughout the season. I think the group of guys really met the defini­ tion of a ‘team’ and I cannot imagine being on any other team ” The Swimming team felt great pride for their performance through­ out the season, which ended with a record of 5-2, but much of the success could be credited to senior captains Brian Kennedy, Kevin Cummings, Vivek Mehta, and junior Flores. Returning captain Flores concluded, wTm really going to miss the senior captains, but I am confident that we can perform just as well next year.”

58 Varsity & J V Bowling

rep’s Varsity and J V Bowling teams had a very memorable year. It was memorable, in part, because of the temporary I absence of their dedicated coach, Mr. Robert Zawistowski, groho was hospitalized for much of the season. Often Mr. Anthony Andreadis and even Principal Mr. Kevin Cuddihy assumed the tempo­ rary void. The year also proved unique because both teams had very young players. The Varsity team consisted of only a handful of commit­ ted bowlers, who gave their all in eveiy match and had a commendable season. These members included seniorsjoseph Skowronski, and Michael Visone, junior Joel Salazar, and sophomores Nicholas Zero and Paul Dabrowski. Players always supported each other’s efforts and ensured a loud, fun and good-humored time, even in the times of defeat More significant victories included their sweep against rival Hudson Catholic, which led to their laudable finish. The team placed 4th in Hudson County, and 17th out of 40th in the State Divisional, and ended with a 84-21 record. With such a young squad, Mr. Zawistowski felt hope for a promising future with such a strong underclassman following. The J V Bowling team performed even better than the Varsity team, providing a taste for a potentially fruitful future, and garnered a 2nd place spot in Hudson County and a record of 6540. Sophomores Anthony DePinto and Eric Morgan dominated the alleys with stand out performances for their team; despite the relative success of theJV team, the players were young, which accounted for their les&4han-peifect record. Sophomore Garrett Zelisko summated, in regard to their performance, “This year was one of growth for our team.” With a large number of younger players on the team, Mr. Zawistowski foresaw that “next year’s team would perform much better.”

he gym, after months of work, came alive again at the / hands of Mr. Brian McCabe and his intramural staff of I seniors, juniors, and varsity basketball players. The entire student body was given the opportunity during the winter months to try their skills at basketball with a less competitive, but equally fun experi­ ence. T he homeroom teams were divided by year into divisions, and these teams played games during both lunch periods. Each team com­ peted for the top spot in their division and the chance to become the school’s champion. Ultimately, the dominant teams included Mr. Carl DeLorenzo’s senior 4C Eastside Imperialistz team, Mr. Michael McCarthy’s junior 3F F ind Becton team, 2C Dr. Richard Kennedy’s Tweakahz team, and Ms. Katherine Lochbrunner's freshman 1G Loch Ness Bailers ‘9 8 team.

T he teams saw some upsets against the usual powerhouse teams, but no team walked away unhappy from their good-humored experi­ ence. T he program hoped for two seasons after its revival last year, but gym-floor construction prevented these plans from bemg implemented. Still, the dedication and professionalism shown by the Intramurals staff of juniors Christopher Barry, Joel Salazar, and Raymond Smith, and seniors Alexander Canale and Caesar Imperio, as well as referring by several varsity basketball players, including seniors Patrick O ’Rourke and Michael Ockay, and junior Ryan Gelchion, gave the strong impres­ sion that the Intramurals program was here to stay. “All the homerooms took pride in (heir teams cheering and some even m ade T-shirts. The season was a lot of fun and a great success; students bonded and had a lot of fun. I really enjoyed helping out and being a part of the staff” commented senior Canale.

or most Prep students, the bell at le end of 7th period does not sig­ nify the end of the school day; the bell indicates the start of a busy afternoon. In addition to preparing stu­ dents academically, spiritually, and physi­ cally for their future pursuits, St. Peter’s Prep bestows upon students another es­ sential key to a complete Prep education: co-curricular activities. Prep provides a myriad of co-curricular activities to its stu­ dent body, giving each student the op­ portunity to participate in any activity that piques his interest, whether competing in a chess tournament, writing for the school newspaper, or organizing support for Prep athletics. Those who desire to improve their oratory skills can compete at Forensics meets or in Model UN Con ferences, while students who seek enter­ tainment pursuits may watch films at IFS events or discuss science fiction topics in the Star Wars Club. No matter how eclec­ tic a student’s interests, Prep offers a place for all. Through their hard work and dedication, Prep men, along with the commit­ ted moderators and advisers, express and share their unique gifts, ultimately con­ tributing to Prep’s growing legacy.

The Italian Club at St. Peter’s Prep brings together students and faculty alike for various events through­ out the year. Its members include a variety of people, not only those of Italian descent, but also those with an interest in expanding their knowledge of foreign countries and cultures. The club’s moderator, Ms. Rosalie Romano, commented, “I am constantly look­ ing for new ways to incorporate different aspects of Italian history and culture into fun and interesting ''events.’’ The club’s president, senior Michael DeAngelis, and vice president junior Joseph Salvo incessantly encourage participation and always are open to exciting new ideas to expand the club. Some o£ the interesting events the Italian Club held during the year included: The Copa del Prep, an annual competition between the Italian Club and the Celtic Club to determine which group was better at soccer once and for all; monthly trips to the city to attend an Italian mass, and then to eat at a sophisti­ cated Italian cafe; a taste of Italian treats and delights at the Venetian Carnivale festival, complete with masks made by first-year Italian students; the combination of several recipes to form an Italian Family Cook­ book; and an evening at the Metropolitan opera in NewYork City to see La Bohime. The Italian Club brought so much to the Prep community and continues to teach the student body about the wonder of the Italian culture.

Every year the students of St. Peter’s Prep band together and raise money for the annual Walk-a-Thon. The success of the Walk-a-Thon would not have been possible had it not been for the Walk-a-Thon Com­ mittee. The small group of committee members could be found posting numerous advertisements around the school in the weeks leading up to the Walk-aThon. Also, in the final days before the Walk-a-Thon, the raffle, which boasted two 42” plasma TVs, quickly became one of the primary responsibilities of the com­ mittee. One of the TVs went to juntoC J-JC opec, who wdii by chance, and the other went to freshman ter McFadden, Who won the grand prize by raising mm m t


$100 and one additional ticket was issued for every $50 raised over the initial $100. On the day of the Walk-a-Thon, the committee set up the tables and pizzas as the students participated in the two-mile walk After the festivities finished and the remaining crowds proceeded to watch the shows in the cafete ria, the committee made sure everything was cleaned up and in proper order. “ The committee ensured that the Walk-a-TTion was once again a great success, bringing in over $80,000 this year,” moderator Mr. David Bailey observed with a smile.

Prep students play chess for various reasons; some desire the intense competition it offers, whereas oth­ ers play merely for recreation. Some students who regularly play chess in the morning are not even part of the team. Nevertheless, their games prove lively, and often the team members coach these players when not in competition. Each and every morning before school and on both Monday and Thursday after­ noons, Prep students gathered around the tables in Dr. Dominic Scibilia’s room “I joined the chess teambecause, before coming to Prep,I went to to play one of the more antheState Meet twice: oncein grammarschoolandoncein cient games in existence.

St, Peter’s Prep continued its advancement in the ranks of the New Jersey Catholic High School M ath League in their latest season. The Math Team met to practice and sat for exams testing their math­ ematical know-how on a range'of advanced curricu­ lar topics including precalculus and trigonometry. In the previous year, the varsity team placed 7th in the state while theJV placed 2nd statewide. A few new faces made quite the difference on both th ejV and Varsity teams. This year’s Varsity Math Team was led in competition by scholar seniors Ankur Patel, Adam Muzyczyn, Brandon Shipman, and Federico Garcia, and also benefited from a new leader, Mr. Benjamin itiak, with the aid of Mr. Patrick Reidy. After four tense rounds of competition, and after lots of chalg lunchtime practices and nail-biting competis in rooms H-101 and H-102, the Varsity team led a spot as one of the top schools in the state. Numerous sophomores and juniors of theJV Math am earned a 3rd place position in the state, led by or Colin Gallo, Jonathan Treble, Roland Zemla, Christopher Fitzpatrick. These up-and-coming mathematics scholars not only ranked highly in all of the competitions, but also they demonstrated confi­ dence, character, and leadership that would help make for an amazing season next year. Said senior Xavier Fuller of his experience with the Math Team, “I love the competition and the challenging math problems.” Go forth and multiply.

Under the leadership of Mr. Charles Crosby, new co-moderator Mr. Robert Hymas and a new Crew Chief, senior Joseph Skowronski, this year’s Stage Crew put the dramatics sets together in record time. This year’s set for the fall drama, Stalag 17, was made up of an eight foot wall of w ood, various crates, a h uge w ine barrel that was d o n a te d by senior A lex Canale, and various other p ro p s.

A general Stage Crew af­ ternoon consisted of building pieces, breaking apart the old, buying materials at Home Depot, or moving pieces of the set to St. Peter’s College. “We’re the hardest working group there is, and we have the most fun,” claimed sophomore Matthew Owen. Some mem­ bers could be found working until 11:00 PM, espe­ cially when work was being done at the college. “They got it done, eventually,” said senior Alexander Doyle, an actor in the play who commented on the long and complicated progression of the set. Indeed, the group always managed to help make for a good show.

There is no better way to welcome in the new year than with a fine dramatic production, and St Peter’s has not failed to do so yet During the year, Prep Dramatics presented the dark comedy of Stalag 17. This dark com­ edy told the story of a group of American POWs in a German war camp during World War IL The play focused on three days in the camp barracks, during which the prisoners daringly come up with a cunning plan of escape. Throughout all of the mayhem, the POWs tried to avoid capture by the snitch that resided among them. The play welcomed back veteran performers seniors Alejandro Melendez, Michael Bomeer, and Alexander Doyle. Dra matics also welcomed several newcomers, including at! niors Philip Dacchille, Philipp Janssen, John de Armas, and juniorJudd Madarang. Each new actor brought their fresh and exciting acting abilities to the stage. In spite of the lack of any female counterparts, the cast did a fabulous job of working together and truly bringing to life the comedy, mystery, and suspense that made the drama what it is, “Such a talented cast made myjob easier because they really knew the histrionics of the play” said English teacher and director Mr.Jack Campion. “I knew we had the talent for it this year, and the talent truly was superb. I enjoyed the comedy, the tension, and drama; it really was great” Senior Ian Bemaiche captured the gen­ eral concensus of the play, saying that “it was an intriguing historical romedy.” With such a complete and utter suc­ cess, there seems no uncertainty about the promisingfuture of the ftep Dramatics program.

Those who participated in Prep’s Stock Market Club know that the stock market is the place where fortunes are made and lost, but, in the end, everyone gets to keep their shirts. These future financial ge­ niuses of our generation regularly met in the Link Computer Center with moderator Ms. Ella Glazer to converse about the potential earnings of various com­ panies; In this time of uncertainty in the country’s economy, these Prep students tried to make money by buying and selling shares of stocks in a virtual stock market game. Ms. Glazer clarified the virtual game, saying “the Stock Market Q ub gives students a chance to invest money in real stock market conditions. We can sell short, buy long, and buy bonds. New members are always welcomed. Some students have made a lot of money.” The only disappointing part for the winner was he could not keep the money. The Computer Club, also moderated by Ms. Ella Glazer, is a forum dedicated to the discussions of relevant and contemporary computer issues. In addition to meeting once a month in the computer lab to expound upon computer issues, the club also brought in guest speakers, including Mr. David Bailey, to discuss computer issues like network security. Mr. Bailey spoke to members about encryption of the network and ISPs. President senior Giuseppe Morgana and vice president senior Mohammed Khan also planned gaming parties and helped organized the monthly meetings with Ms. Glazer’s assistance.

The Model United Nations Club offers Prep stu­ dents an opportunity to represent various countries in relation to the pressing topics of the world today. “We do our part educating students about the issues faced by the world and the UN,” commented senior Peter Ligeiro, “and we create initiatives to help shape a better future.” Under the guidance of senior presi­ dent Michael Sherry, fhe Model UN saw the largest attendance in the club in years. For the fifth year in a row, moderator Mr. Paul Cunneen led the Model UN to cumulative success in multiple conferences and events. During the year, the UN delegates participated in the two-day Seton Hall University Model United Nations VI conference, or SHUMUN VI, on April 9 and 10. This conference was attended by over 500 students from all along the East Coast every year and has been attended by Prep since the club’s inception. At the conference, Prep students represented the countries of Russia, Austra­ lia, Algeria, Italy, Oman, and the Ivory Coast in seven different conferences. Each of these committees cov! ered a pressing issue facing these countries: Disarma­ ment and International Security Committee, Social, Cultural, and Humanitarian Committee, Commission on Science and Technology, United Nations Interna­ tional Children’s Emergency Fund, League of Arab States, Security Council, and die North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The coundess meetings and practices assured another success by the Model UN group.

The Classics Club made great strides iri the third year since its inception. Despite what Prep students tenrl to think, the ancient cultures of Rome and Greece still are very much alive today. “A lot of the time, we focus on the language while in Latin class,” said moderator and Latin Teacher Ms. Kristine Spano, “but in the Clas­ sics Club, have] a chance to experience b oth the language and the culture instead.” The club changed focus this year and used m odern m ovies and events with classical themes to gain wider ap­ “Withtogasyou don 'tneedto peal. A screening of Gladiator wearanypants!" and a trip to see Junior Patrick Comey Alexander, the movie, and a live performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar drew dozens of students, offer proof that interest in the Classics Club has grown.

M oderators Ms. K atherine Lochbrunner and Ms. Spano worked withjuniors presi­ dent Patrick Comey, vice president Valentino Mills, and secretaries Andrew Anderson and Stephen McDermott This group of hard-working individuals also set its sights on increasing the number of students who enroll in either Latin or Greek as an elective in their junior and senior years. As junior Anderson concisely put it, “Thanks to the Classics Club, Latin is no longer dead!”

Throughout the year, the History Club presented history-themed movies after school; previous presen­ tations included Black Hawk Down, Dr. Strangelove, and The Mouse That Roared, as well as other clips from medieval-themed movies in an event called “Me­ dieval Surprise:” Moderated by Mr. Paul Cunneen and run by president junior Stephen McDermott, vice president sophomore Adam Baginski, and secretary junior Steven Karunphand, the History Club accom­ plished a great deal. In the first months of the school year, the club organized Prep’s Mock Election. Mr. Cunneen designed an Electoral College map by as signing electoral votes to each Prep homeroom based on the number of students. Prep’s own mock elec­ tion resulted in a John Kerry victory with 368 elec­ toral votes to George W. Bush’s 162, and, surprisingly Prep teacher Mr. Fletcher managed to secure eight electoral votes, all from Mr. Muir’s homeroom, 4F. The History Club organized “Teacher Survivor,” a game in which teachers participated in a game of trivial pursuit to raise money for the mission drive. The event’s winners used the proceeds raised from admission to the event for their homeroom mission drive funds. Commenting on the club, Mr. Cunneen stated, “I am always amazed by the enthusiasm each member has for the club.” Presidentjunior McDermott added, “I enjoy running the History Club’s event and am glad to see that all of the club’s members are eager to participate.”

Prep Factor is an organization of Prep men commit­ ted to raising awareness of Human Rights issues at home in the United States and abroad in places like Colum­ bia, Ghana, and other third-world countries. Led by moderator Dr. Dominic Scibilia, the Prep Factor ran such campaigns as the “Killer Coke,” which probably was the largest activity undertaken by the gToup In places like Columbia, the Coca-Cola Cor­ poration ignores illegal practices that violate basic hu­ man rights of the indigenous people who Coke has employed as managers of their bottling companies. In a few eases , these practices ultimately have ended in death! The Prep Factor was trying to make a statement to Coca-Cola by asking that Prep remove the Coke marhinp-a and the school’s endorsement of Coke, from school grounds and by contacting the president of Coke himcplf The group even brought the president of the national grassroots Killer Coke organization to speak to Prep students in the St Peter's Church.

Juniors Jacob Kafka and Nilesh Parikh talk quietly at an Art Club meeting awaiting a talk from a ■ special guest lecturer. '

The Art Club witnessed a rebirth with the help of new teacher and moderator Ms. Megan Klim. Students gained a greater appreciation for all things art and Cul­ ture through the Art Club, which often had students experience art around them in their everyday lives, in both Jersey City and New York City. Junior Hector Flores commented, “I enjoyed the Art Club because it allowed me to learn about new artists and expanded my horizons on art in general.” The club often debated the definition of art and attempted to classify new art­ works as art based on their contextual definitions. Led by seniors Alvin Anez and Kevin Dugan, the Art Club took numerous trips around the Jersey City area to visit maseums and exhibits, including a trip to Victory Hall to see an AV art exhibition. Students also watched a movie, Running Fence, a documentary by the Maysles brothers about the efforts of Christo and Jeanne-Claude to construct a 24-mile long fence made of white nylon that ran through two countries. After watching the movies, students had an opportunity to experience the artwork of Christo andJeanne-Claude firsthand by visiting their newest installation, The Gates, in Central Park. In addition, students listened to Mr. Rich Neddor speak about cartooning and his career in cartoons. Students were interested to learn about the process of creating a comic book. Overall, the Art Club was busy with events that constantly encouraged its members to seek the beauty and mystique in art in our everyday life, and succeeded in doing so.

As was the tradition, the SA.D.D. Club opened the year with the Hudson County Shoutdown Drugs Contest. Out of all of Prep’s entries, senior Brendan Kelly advanced to the county’s next level of compe­ tition with other winners from each school.

A t 7:30 in the morning, some students are either wiping the sleep out of their eyes or hopping the train or bus to get to Prep. The diligent members of the Christian Life Community (CLC), however, may be found in the Madonna Chapel, attending Mass with Fr. Michael Hoag, SJ., and preparing for their weekly meeting. Every week, freshmen and sopho­ mores met on Tuesdays and juniors and seniors met on Thursdays, all with the intention of beginning the day with prayer and reflection. To facilitate and guide the reflection process, the CLC members used a book called Vision: Praying Scripture in a Contemporary Way written by Mark Link, S J., which included a guided reflection for every day of the Roman Catholic Church’s annual reading cycle. According to senior Peter Geary, who noted, “CLC provides a half hour each week to sit and re­ flect; I use the time for meditation. It really helps to relax me.9 With Ms. Kaija DeWitt and Mr. Richard Hitchcock as their spiritual guides, CLC students took tiffins reading scripture passages and offering up daily reflections and meditations on how each student could become a better Christian through the practice of the Bible’s simple teachings. The Christian Life Community co-curricular served as a spiritually prac­ tical way to begin one’s day because of the basic, yet powerfully uplifting message of Christian ideology. This same message also was oft-camed through the song and story of the Liturgical Music group.

A staple of the Prep community and a true necessity to the entertainment ofthe Prep student body, the TV Studio reemerged as an even stronger force than in year’s past Under the leadership ofnew moderator and English teacher Ms. Bonny Eaton, the? dub managed to match and surpass the standards set forth by previous leaders. The group continued their legacy by producing another hilarious and surprising video for the tadilional Christmas Prayer Service, In addition, the club created weekly News features highlighting the softer side “Fortherecordourmeetingslook of Prep, and showcasing Mr. absolutelynothinglike this!"

The second year of IFS marked a year of many great changes. In addition to the traditional format of watching films at school and viewing theatrical re­ leases in the city, the IFS instituted the Symposium of Film, whereby each semester the group chose a dif­ ferent theme of films to show at school. The fall ush­ ered in many films about coming-of-age in modem society, including Les Quatre Cent Coups and Goodbye Lenin! at school, and The Motorcycle Diaries and Maria Full o f Grace in the city. The spring saw numerous first features of famed independent filmmakers, such as Slacker, Stranger Than Paradise, Gummo, and She's Gotta Have It. They also saw The Sea Inside and the House o f Flying Daggers in the city. Indeed, the year saw a great increase in the number of films viewed and witnessed the formation of a core group of dedi­ cated cinephiles who appeared at every showing. Moderated by Mr. David Muir and run by presi­ dent and founder senior Donald Delaon, the group ensured a promising future as a visible co-curricular on campus, complete with numerous announcements, a colorful bulletin board, and color posters strewn around the school. Frequent after school meetings assured that the latest movies were considered for viewing. “Our gr oup has such great fun sharing our passion for watching films,” said Mr. Muir. “If there’s some way I can convey my love of films to my stu­ dents, then my job as moderator is complete.”

There were an astounding fifty nine young men inducted into the McNally Sinnott chapter of the Na­ tional Honor Society in December, as well as an additional two students following the conclusion of the first semester of the school year. The National Honor Society continued to be one of Prep’s most highly regarded honors. Run by moderator Sr. Frances Marie Duncan, OSF, and co-presidents seniors Ankur Patel and Matthew Gelchion, this distinguished group of men continually served and always impressed. All i given this honor demonstrated scholarship, leader ship, and service to the Prep community. The honorees constantly played a role in Prep s everyday life by acting as “the oil” for the Prep ma­ chine; “NHS is what keeps the Prep train running. They help those that struggle in school as well as helping to spread the spirit of Prep outside of school,” commented senior Adam Muzyczyn. 'Ihe sixty one scholars that received the award lived up to their titles by leading many service functions both inside and outside of school, such as the Adopt-a-Family program during the holiday season, a tutoring pro­ gram for underclassmen, and the collection of funds for an Appalachian girl’s educational dreams. In ad­ dition, NHS members assisted at all of the Open House functions. The members of this prestigious organiza­ tion make Prep life more efficient and attempt to ef­ fect people on both a local and national scale.

Marauder Nation was the new face of the once dormant Spirit Committee, or, as junior Ray Smith described it, “upgrading the tradition.” Being one of the most active co-curriculars at St. Peter’s, Marauder Nation provided the entire Prep community with a backbone of enthusiastic and inspiring support in all fields of athletic competition.

As the office most directly involved with the student population, the Main Office organizes and coordinates general and academic affairs essential for eveiyday Prep life. The Mata Office administrators make sure thatPrep not only func­ tions efficiently, but also ensures that Prep contin­ ues to grow as a school. Under the guidance and leadership of Prin­ cipal Mr. Kevin Cuddihy, St Peter’s Prep conto­ nes to develop and move towards the future. During his tenure, Prep has seen many changes, including the recent time order shift hi charge of the basic operation and educational develop­ ment of the school, Mr. Cuddihy gracefully su­ pervised and implemented these changes. In his second year as principal, he says, “I learned a lot about the students and the school last year. I can Use this knowledge to make Prep even, better.” By overseeing changes such as the revision of the Prep curriculum and by extending academic support and tutoring to more students, Mr. Cuddihy continues to foster the ever-growing and ever-changing Prep community.

As Vice Principal, Mr. Patrick Reidy orga­ nizes tiae academic affairs of the school. A disci­ plined veteran, he assures that Rep students have fulfillingintellectual experiences. During the year Mr. Reidy implemented WinSchool so that the faculty and administration had greater ease in organizing academic information such as grades, and in accessing student profiles. This shift from paper to computer streamlined the bookkeep­ ing process. Mr. Reidy and Mr. Cuddihy together ensured that the academic atmosphere at Prep was properly nurtured.

R For students and teachers alike, every new day at Prep brings knowledge and memories coming from many places: the classroom, the courtyard, athletics, activities, friends and teachers. But of all those recollections, the memories that come from the people in the Assistant Principal for Student Aflairs Office are those most overlooked, despite being among the most characteristic of Prep life. The ability of Assistant Principal Mr. Kenneth Dandorph to know one’s name and homeroom from memory can often be a disadvantage result­ ing in the infamousJUG. Whether one is a regular JUG addict or not, one simply cannot help but acknowledge Mr. Dandorph’s authoritative pres­ ence at school. Ms. Celicia Collins, the Attendance Office sec­ retary, is responsible for monitoring late students. On a daily basis, she collects and organizes student forms and attendance slips and manages the lost and found pile. In Collins’ absence or during her lunch break, Fr. Thomas McManus, SJ., assumes secretarial duties. Mr, Kenneth Dandorph If students need fields a call from a teacher medical attention, Nurse as he reviews the daily JUG Ms. Helene Schneider, list RN, administers to die their various illnesses. Many Prep students hail from distance parts of NewJersey and New York, and Ms. Elizabeth Dandorph handles all transportationreimburse­ ments for these students. Dean Mr. James Collins spends much of his time observing the cafeteria and courtyard, making certain that the behavior of all Prep stu­ dents remains orderly. His other duties include organizing Prep’s innu­ merable co-curriculars, and arranging locker as­ signments before the start of the school year. Whether responding 'to a JUG slip by seeing Mr. Dandorph, healing a bloody nose at the hands ofthe kind Ms. Schneider, or getting a new locker assignment from Mr. Collins, the experience of dealing with any one of the ad­ ministrators in the Assistant Principal for Student Afimrs Office becomes part of a Prep student’s life.

At the far end of the second floor of Shalloe Hall, money-managing and resolution of ad­ ministrative matters take place in the Resident’s Office. Fr. James Keenan, SJ., in his tenth year of presidency, along with Secretary Ms. Maryphyllis Locricchio, executes the difficult decisions that face Prep on a daily basis. Man­ aging everything from the school budget to the school faculty, Fr. Keenan feels an enormous burden of responsibility. During the past year, Fr. Keenan received permission to finalize the Seabright Retreat House, an Emmaus retreat center that fell out of use due to substandard building conditions, meaning that Prep would be able to rebuild the house and use it for both Emmaus and the other retreats. Other goals for fee year included the purchase of St. Peter’s Church and the lib ­ erty Charter School, both which share the block with St Peter’s Prep. When asked to reflect upon the year, Fr. Keenan replied by saying, “You know, this is the first time in a while that we’ve had four National Merit finalists. I just hope we continue to do well academically and continue to grow spiritually.” Fr. Keenan’s hard work assured Prep of such continued success.

Nestled in the comer of Shalloe Hall lies a vital part of Prep: the Switchboard. Oft over­ looked, the people there provide an invalu­ able service to the Prep community. Much more than just a place for students who have made Emmaus to leave “materials,” the Switchboard is a necessary part of the everyday dynamic of Prep. Not only does the Switchboard serve as the main connection to all of Prep’s teachers, administrators, and coaches, but it also relays the message of such news as school-wide hap­ penings, delayed schedules, and snow days, much to the delight of students. Moreover, they act as Prep’s post office, distributing informa­ tion to and sorting mail and packages for the teachers. In short, the Switchboard keeps all of Prep informed and running smoothly. Though they often work behind the scenes, Ms. Maria Scrudato, Mr. Pyke Roman, and se­ nior Juan Cardenas work efficiently and play an essential role in our community.

“Guys, exact change, over here!” is a com­ mon call heard by Prep students everyday. The sounds of the frantic cafeteria during recess or lunch are a part of the Prep experience. Every day, Prep students march into the cafeteria in hopes of making it a M e early, beating the rush, and getting the first batch of fries or mozzarella sticks at recess. Though they sometimes com­ plain about the constantly climbing prices, the students always seem to bombard the kitchen with consistent demands for food. This year, the cafeteria has an even wider selection than ever, and in doing so, their range of delectable delights seems to include some­ thing to cater to the appetite of all.Junior Rob­ ert Abud commented, “My favorite [dishl is the ‘special’ macaroni and cheese which I had when I came here for Freshman for a Day. I get nostalgic whenever they have it.” In addition to the changes in menu, a gaggle of new faces has appeared among the kitchen staff.

Every morning, Prep students arrive to a clean locker room, a spotless cafeteria, and immaculate homerooms, and they have the maintenance/clean-up crew to thank. From the early morning hours, right through the hectic day until late at night, their hard work is what keeps Prep looking perpetually spick-and-span. Whether starting the Prep machine in the morn­ ing, cleaning up after two waves of lunches, wiping the chalkboards clean, or setting up the gym for an assembly, these motley men do their best to keep Prep looking its best. Not only do they contribute to the cleanli­ ness of the school, but the various repairs Heeded throughout the school can be attrib­ uted to the maintenance staff. Whether it be a broken light bulb or one of the Prep vans, the maintenance staff does its partin ensuring that all things Prep are back in working order as soon as possible. Though the job may be frus­ trating for them at times, the crew often can be found working with smiles on their faces, occa­ sionally telling jokes to Prep students. The crew makes Prep what it is, working tirelessly behind the scenes. The maintenance/clean-up crew prove to be the unsung heroes who create the atmosphere within Prep’s hallowed halls. I t

oward the end of the two-day Freshman Orientation, the incoming students unwind and enjoy themselves dur­ ing the Freshman Olympics, the yearly athletic competition among the incoming students. Thf event is filled with several athletic opportunities such as basketball, football, and the everpopular egg-drop contest Throughout the day, the freshmen homerooms compete for the coveted awards of the day. While the day is full of physically strenuous events, it also serves as an ice-breaker for the still-hesitant freshmen who may not be as comfortable with their surroundings yet. The day is full of laughter and the forming of new relationships and memories. Prep students of years past and present still look fondly upon their freshmen orient&tion, particularly Freshmen Olympics, and feel delighted by all of their wonderful memories. Freshman Christopher Hetherington summated, in regard to his Freshman Olympics experience, “I had lots of fun; I already knew people from the football team. I especially had a blast at the games we played.” Familiar or fresh-faced to each other, the freshmen class view the day as an important first impression of the exciting Prep career to come.

M he Freshman Day of Retreat is a tradition for all. A Prep hallmark since its inception, the day serves to unite the new Prep students with the generations of students before them. The retreat gives both stu­ dents and faculty superb first-time experiences of the Prep Campus Ministry. For example, Assistant Chap­ lain Ms. Mara Codey did not expect her group’s bus to break down: “We ended up having half of the retreat in the park close to where we stopped.” More­ over, there are traditional events that serve as high­ lights for the retreat; for example, any student, if asked about the retreat, mentions Packy Roe, a movie about a man who dies, meets God, and then realizes how many people'he influenced during his life. Every student’s experience is unique, as different connections, friendships, and memories are made. Both Fr. John Mullin, SJ., and Ms. Katherine Lochbrunner agreed that “it was a great day, and the students enjoyed and took a lot out of it.” Freshmen Gary Apito and Andrew Sharp enjoy a rousing game of football during the Freshman Day of Retreat.

n the spring of each year, freshmen embark on a trip to the fine art institutions situated around Prep for the annual Freshman Arts Day. The A rt and His­ tory Departments aim at bettering the aesthetic and cultural knowledge of their students. For a day, freshmen explore many of the famed cultural institutions of New York City. Among the museums traditionally visited in the past include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Mu­ seum, and Whitney Museum of American Art. Not only do the students visit museums, but also they ex­ perience another aspect of the art world: the per­ forming arts. For example, in the past, some students have seen the play Romeo and Juliet in New York. “For Freshman Arts Day I went to the Met. We saw many different sculptures and armor and the Byz­ antine Art, which all made for a good experience. I learned a lot of different things and it was a day with­ out said sophomore Thomas Vardakis. Many freshmen concur with his opinion of the day.

V mong the many firsts that a first-year student V P can experience is recognition at Prep as an Outstanding Freshman. An honor for any first-year Prep student, the award serves to recognize approxi­ mately fifteen students that stand above the rest of their class in terms of devotion to school, their friends, and activities both inside and outside of Prep. In or­ der to be chosen as an Outstanding Freshman, a stu­ dent must be nominated by fellow classmates and be selected by a committee; in such a way, Outstanding Freshman is the forerunner of the coveted Spirit Award. Senior Kevin Cummings commented, “I was shocked and very surprised that my peers nominated me. It was an honor.” Being recognized as an Outstanding | Freshman is an excellent way to begin one’s high | school career at St. Peter’s Preparatory School.

Usually lasting three hours, stu­ dents and their dates dance and dine in the Prep cafeteria, which is beautifully decorated for the event Fr. Tony Azzarto, SJ., acts as the night’s unofficial photographer, snapping the semi-formal attendee and his date upon their entrance into the foyer and cap­ turing the rest of the night on film for them. The music, played by a school-hired disc-jockey, provides a pleasant ambience throughout the evening. Every year, the food is a catered buffet of Italian cuisine from a variety of restaurants in the area. Junior AJ. Vecellio, fondly recalling his Semi-Formal experience, noted that “the night was so much fun. I had a lot of fun dancing, and I hope that future goers will have as much fun at their Semi-Formals.”

Tony Azzarto, SJ., assisted by upper­ classmen chosen by him, allows sophomores to bond with each other in a fun-filled and relaxed enviroment. The Prep gymnasium, open the entire evening, houses many activities, among them ping-pong, football, bas­ ketball, and darts. A breakfast awaits the students when they “wake-up” in the morning; in fact, most students do not fall asleep until breakfast is served. Some of the enjoyment occurs outside the gym walls. Coundess video game tournaments are held in the Prep HaU-of-Fame corner, and card games abound between friends; others watch DVDs together. Junior CJ. Kopec commented, “I have never had such a great time at school; it was the first time I really en­ joyed being in gym.” Those who participate in the night feel that it truly is a great experience.

n the latter half of sophomore year, the entire class loads onto buses and heads off to various retreat locations around the northern Newjersey and New York area for the Sophomore Day of Retreat. Led by the Emmaus Team, the Special Ministers of the Eucharist, and the faculty, the sophomores spend a day reflecting on their progress at Prep. How many friendships have they made? Are they living up to personal expectations when it comes to grades? Where do they stand'with family and friends as of now? Two homerooms share a retreat center, strength­ ening existing friendships and building new ones. Junior Hector Flores commented, “The Sophomore Retreat built on the foundation of the Freshman Re­ treat. The fact that the two were similar made the Sophomore Retreat much more enjoyable.” In sum, the Soohcffliore Day of Retreat provides students an opportunity for reflection and social, spiritual growth.

-hristian Service involves helping the disadvantaged and the needy people of both the local and national community. Each student is re­ quired to perform at least sixty hours of Christian Service after his sophomore year. As an alternative, students can take a week-long summer immersion trip. In the past, students have worked at locations like Glenmary Farms in Kentucky, Loaves and Fishes in West Virgina, and Nazareth Farms in Pennsylvania. Junior Andrew Zhu worked at a day-care center in a socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhood of Newark. He commented, “I began to see how impor­ tant the education of children is to the future.” After completing the Christian Service hours, one must attend reflection meetings in order to fulfill the requirement. These reflection meetings frequently are built into the immersion trips. With the help of Sr. Frances Marie Duncan, OSF, who coordinates the Christian Service program, Prep students emerge as men not only of competence, but also of con1 science and compassion.


Juniors Mark Tiedemann, Thomas Zaucfia, Padraic Friel, Matthew Rubbinaccio, Joseph Branagan, and Ernest Martinez emerge from the St. John the Baptist Church during their summer YSOP New York trip. Junior Matthew Rubbinaccio enjoyed ''helping the poor people “ on his experience.

I he Junior Ring Ceremony signifies a passage § from life as an underclassman to life as a leader of the school, a senior. From freshman to junior year, Prep students progressively acquire the skills and knowledge necessary not only to become good se­ niors but also to become successful people in the real world. In early May, students attend a Sunday mass at the St. Peter’s Church to receive their senior year rings in front of faculty, friends, and family. The rings, are blessed by Fr. Tony Azzarto, SJ,, and are administered along with a benediction from a faculty member of the students’ choice, represent­ ing yet one more key teachers have to offer to their students. Senior Juan Cardenas commented, “The Ring Mass marked a monumentous time in my Prep career, and my ring symbolizes unity and eternity. In this ring, I hope to put timeless memories of friends here alPrep.” The ring is the ultimate symbol of one’s rite-of-passage from childhood to young adulthood.

f —very year, Prep juniors look forward to the ^ ^ " e x c ite m e n t and merriment of the annual Jun­ ior Prom, away to celebrate a long and burdensome third year of high school. The prom allows all stu­ dents to expel some end-of-the-year steam with their dates and their best friends, and to have a great time eating and dancing the night away. Commonly held at a reputable dining or party venue in the area, the prom is one of the many amaz­ ing bonding experiences every student looks back upon with fond memories. “It’s one of the few times in our Prep careers when we can spend time together and just have fun with our classmates, as opposed to only working in class or on the athletic field,” com­ mented SeniorJoseph McDonald. The prom is one of the final events of junior year and is a great way to bring the year to a close. The Junior Prom gives the junior class a taste for the more extraordinary Senior

since the Jesuits opened (heir firstschool in 1548, they have been M committed to educaling and enlightening students. Centuries later, St. Peter’s Prep continues this tradition of nur­ turing men of competence, compassion, and con­ science. Neither the beginning nor the end Prep is a passageway for the boys that first enter itsgates and then later emerge as men. Given the keys to the outside worid by teach­ ers, coaches, moderators, and their families and friends, the graduating class has been endowed with the necessary skills and experi­ ences to guide them as they leave Prep’s pro­ tectivegates.The members of the Gass of2005 have left their mark on Prep, just as Prep has changed diem. M their four years stGmnd & Warren, they have contributed much to Prep, taking on leadmhip roles in clubs, teams, and community events. No longer timid freshmen, the graduates developed into a tightly-knitmw munity of scholars, athletes, and fiiends. As the graduating class gradually received die keys, it has led die Prep community to adapt and grow as the world changed. Now, leav­ ing Prep’s gates after four years, the Prep’s Graduating Class o f2005. already having- left a legacy atPrep, embarks on its ownjourney to make die world a better place.

"There's character and there’s reputation. Reputation is what someone thinks you are; character is what you are. Reputations come and go, but character stays the same." —Gary Barnett

Being selected as an Emmaus Team Leader is a privilege for m em ­ bers of the senior class. These leaders are hand-selected by Fr. Tony Azzarto, SJ., based on their leadership ability and willingness to open their hearts to first-time retreatants in order to fos­ ter the positive attitude needed to make the weekend retreat successful. Aside from attending meetings and planning Emm aus retreats, the team also helps out on the Freshman and the Sophomore Day of R etreat This leadership is a responsibility

not to be taken lightly. Team leaders are called upon to be role models for all of their fellow classmates. Often this profoundness is in finding God and having an insatiable desire to share His love with others. It takes a special individual to be able to lead fellow classmates: one who is driven to in­ spire others and does so with com­ passion, courtesy, and competence. T e a m L e a d e r J o e M c D o n a ld comm m ented, “Being an Emmaus Team Leader means passing on the Emmaus spirit to the future leaders.”

Quite possibly, CJ. is the funniest person I know. Since Mr. Fletcher’s religion class during sopho­ more year, he has been a truly great friend. Stop punching people! {P.D.)

Bryan Angeles

Bryan is one of the many people that goes unno­ ticed here at Prep. He’s always been there for me no matter what and I truly appreciate it {A.M.)

D avid Docherty & Alejandro Melendez

Ian Bem aiche

It has been a privilege being their friend over the past four years. We have accomplished a lot together. I hope that we will remain great friends through our adult lives. (WM.)

Ian is the strongest kid I have ever met; he once pounded a dent into my car, but he’s also really nice and caring. (K.C.)

Many are called, but few are chosen. The Special Ministers of the Eucharist, an exceptional group of seventeen seniors, not only serve the Holy Eucharist at every Prep mass, but also volun­ teer their time during lunch pe­ riods on a weekly basis to dis­ cuss important events around the school and the faith community. Over time, the role of a minister has increased a great deal. Morn­ ing Prayer for Peace, founded two years ago by former Prep

history teacher Mr. Tom Murphy, began its bi-weekly run with the ministers leading reflections about their personal life experi­ ences in relation to some read­ ing. Throughout the year, these ministers spread spirit around the halls of Prep, offering their time to the school community as well as neighborhoods throughout the area. Says Eucharistic Minis­ ter Peter Roselli, “We aim at bet­ tering the spiritual and day-to-day lives of everyone around us.”

Every year, the Prep Spirit Award is presented to exemplary juniors and seniors that display great dedication and commitment to the community of Prep in terms of spirit, intellect, body, and heart The recipients of the award are nomi­ nated by their teachers and peers who recognize these men for oth­ ers as “unsungheroes.” Senior Chris Keating, a junior-year Spirit Award recipient, said, “The award is so unexpected that the initial response to hearing your name being an­

nounced is nothing less than ex­ traordinary.” This award is the most revered at Prep, an expression of gratitude and respect that recipients have earned from their teachers and their peers for all the work they have done and the sacrifices they have made during their Prep ca­ reer. Since its inception, the pre­ sentation of the Spirit Award has become a great assembly tradition. This tradition is a great way to show appreciation for Prep men that are truly “men for and with others.”

Christopher Monahan, Jr. W hen I first m et him I thought he was a punk

because he had an earring. (He also had one of his papers thrown away for writing past the alloted time.) We came to know each other more because we starting talking about my hometown. We were in some classes together during fresh­ m an year. A t lunch time, starting sophomore year, I sat with him and his friends. As time went on, we becam e closer and could talk openly. This culminated when Chris, Rich, and myself went out to dinner in Little Italy after exams. We had such a great time! (.D.G.)

Patrick O’Rourke Pat has taught me so much about life: how to laugh, how to treat people, and how to be a brother to somebody. Without his influence on my life over the last four years, I wouldn’t be as proud of Prep as I am now. (V.P)

Arthur Olvesen Arthur is a true m an for others since he always is willing to help others before helping himself. Arthur also has a great sense of humor. [AM )

JAC Vito Petruzzelli

Since the age of five, we have been friends through the good and bad times. Whether it was a base­ ball game on Paving, or hanging out with the girls in the diner lot, the memories will always be there. Continue your great spirit and I hope our friend­ ship never ends. (P-R-) I first met Vito when he started out in the band. I remember one day he came in and played like he was a veteran and he blew everyone’s socks off. He was not shy or nervous (or, at least, he didn’t show it) I was amazed. I was like “Where did this guy come from?” During freshman year, he seemed too cocky so I didn’t like him, but, as time went by, he befriended me and we would talk. He always seemed like a leader and a trendsetter. Whether it was telling guys in the band to stop screwing around or it was living and being the Marauder, he knew how to lead. He would try to get Prep guys to come to the basketball games even when they were not doing so well. It is great that he has

a lot of self-esteem. I admire how he is relaxed and easy-going, something I want to leam. (D.G.) Peter Roselli

He is definitely one of the behind-the-scenes heroes of Prep. Even though he wasn’t a starter on the football team, his work ethic is unmatched and his drive was inspirational; he is a great friend to all. (IV.P.) Joshua Teves

Once you get past Josh’s outwardly shy facade, and get to know him more, you’ll find out that he’s a very interesting persoa He’s a very moti­ vated person who has a lot to offer. Fm glad to have him as a friend. (R-C.) Jam es Vardakis

Even though he is a quiet kid, he is also a very reliable kid. He’s also a great person to turn to whenever you need help. [A.M.)

The students of St Peters Prep studyassiduously, loveindiscriminately, and leam passionately by collecting the keys that arm them with the tools they need to survive in college and beyond. In senior year, the final keys are collectedthrough a series ofevents. For example, seniors have two days set aside to make college visits and trudge through the applications pro­ cess to cement their futures as Prep graduates. On two separate days, the seniors partake in the final bonding experiences with their teachers at the

Faculty-Senior Dinner, typically held in the cafeteria, and the Faculty-Senior Picnic, normally held at Liberty State Park. The Senior Prom acts as one of the last social gatherings of the class, usually held at a country club and complete with a “mocktail hour,” re­ ception, stunning table settings, and elegant cuisine. On a Sunday preced­ ing graduation, the final spiritual gath­ ering as a class takes place at the Bac­ calaureate Mass. Finally, the key that opens thegates is given as Graduation commences on a warm,June night

F a th e r. B r o th e r / “I can say without hesitation that no man has ever had a greater influ­ ence on Prep students than Father Anthony Azzarto, SJ. He is inviting and amiable towards all, and he prob­ ably knew your name before you knew his. He is a friend to everyone and many, myself included, think of him as a brother, a father, or, certainly, as a friend for life. . I first encountered Father Azzarto in my freshmen year, as I was fortu­ nate enough to have him as my Reli­ gion teacher. He seemed a little odd, with his wispy hair and his excessive, friendly yelling. His room was quite distractingwith the numerous posters, old projects, and, of course, pictures. Ithad the smell ofstale Emmaus chips and I had the overwhelming feeling that I was in a garage hangout rather than a classroom, and that is the way he wantedyou to feeLFather was and is not and a conventional teacher; in feet, I believe our first assignmentwas toleam the names ofthe otherpeople in our class. It was a unique idea, but I understood he was creating both a dass and a community at the same time. Thisis exactlyhowFathershaped Prep students as a whole; he made us into a community. Not only did Father connect with us inhis classes, buthe also connected with students outside of school. I re­ member going to Varsity Baseball games before ever coming to Prep,

seeing him there every time, but never actuallygivingmuch thoughtto his pres­ ence. Then, when I came to Prep, I realized that he went to every game he could. It is amazing that one man can do all that Father has done; besides his teachingresponsibilitiesand goingtomost sporting events, Fathermanaged to lead weddings and baptisms for former stu­ dents and their children. Father never failed to astonish students by being as compassionate as he possibly could, going to every wake for each lost rela­ tive in the Prep community. I also had that bittersweet feeling last year when my grandmother passed away. It was a

difficult time for me, but when I sawthatFatherwas compassionate enough to attend her wake I was practically speechless. I was awe­ struck to see him; Ijust found itto be so amazingthathe would come there to see how I was doing and to give his respects to someone he did not knowpersonally. Finally, Father Azzarto is most associated with the amazing expe­ rience that he runs and is synony­ mous with: Emmaus. While every Emmaus experience is different, everyone who made Emmaus, both student and adultalike, would

agree thatitwas tremendous, because of our amazingleader on the trip, Fa­ ther Azzarto. Emmaus willforever be extraordinary, but it willnever be the same as when Father was there, creat­ ing the awe-inspiring atmosphere that filled the air and invoking that inde­ scribable feeling that one feels while there. FatherAzzarto is responsible for helping us all to open up and feel like a femily. Father’s effect on the Rep community can never be matched by anyone and he sorely will be missed by everyone in the Prep community. I owe my Prep experience to him; it will not truly be Prep with him gone.” Junior CJ. Kepec

Beloved Father Anthony Azzarto, S.J.


St r ik in g Sw in g e r s The Varsity Baseball team broke all expectations with an extraordi­ nary 24-3 season filled with numerous accolades. The team was led by key players seniors Charles Comprelli, Michael Brown, and captain Nicholas Criaris under the seasoned watch of Coach Joe Urbanovich, who achieved his 500th win during the season. The team’s strong bond, camaraderie, and determination carried them far during the season. The team enjoyed a successful season with three crucial victories against county foe Bayonne by a combined score of 32*8, as well as early comeback wins against Delbarton (3-2) and S t Rose (Belmar) (75). The team’s heart and never-give-up attitude pushed them to achieve the County Championship, helped by wins against foe Hudson Catholic (7-6) and Memorial (4-2), and solidified by the North Bergen success, during which Prep scored five runs in the sixth inning to win 5-1 and avenged their only county loss of the year. The team’s strength led them to earn the #1 seed in both the County Tournament and the Parochial A North State Tournament Despite a loss in the State Tournament to Roselle Catholic in the 2nd round, the team achieved both county and statewide success and enjoyed a season never to be forgotten. Senior Patrick Blaney noted, “You could feel something special about this team, and I hope everyone understands how special this year was, when they look at our record and see that we brought the Counties back to where it belongs.” The team was together through the thick and the thin; as senior Charles Comprelli added, “The odds were against us and we proved everyone wrong.”
