Dear Fordham Prep Parent/Guardian,
During the past several days, we have become aware of several communities suffering losses and tragedies.
At Mount St. Michael High School (Bronx, NY), a student athlete died during football practice last week. Also last week, a rising senior at Sacred Heart School (Greenwich, CT) and her parents were lost in a violent death. Meanwhile, two of our Jesuit high schools, Strake Jesuit and Cristo Rey, are located in Houston and are suffering the terrible impact of Hurricane Harvey. Many of us in the Fordham Prep community have friends and loved ones in these communities.
In our prayers, may we lift the communities of Mount, Sacred Heart, Strake and Cristo Rey to God's heart of compassion, love and strength.
To learn more about how our community of Jesuit education is responding in Houston, please see this brief article by Fr. Jeff Johnson, SJ, president of Strake High School:
As we learn how the Fordham Prep community can serve the needs of those who suffering, we will communicate with you.
