The Saint Makers: Inside the Catholic Church and the War Hero Inspired a Journey of Faith is part biography of Medal of Honor awardee Father Emil Kapaun, part detective story about the saint making process as well as an exploration of Joe's Jesuit education and his journey of faith.

“Drape’s latest is a feel-good account of the campaign to canonize the Rev. Emil Kapaun...The book is at its most thrilling in its tales of the priest’s wartime heroics....Fascinating.” ―The New York Times

In his new encyclical letter, “Fratelli tutti on Fraternity and Social Friendship,” Pope Francis suggests ways in which we can build a more just, peaceful world, one in which we recognize each other as brothers and sisters of one human family.   The Parent Faith and Fellowship committee invites parents and alumni to join us for a panel discussion on the encyclical, led by:

  • John Neary, Prep Class of 1987 and former chair of the Prep Board of Trustees
  • Dave Fitzgerald, Prep class of 1987 and parent class of 2021
  • Wendy Gittings, past parent '14, '15, '18 and former President of the Mothers' Club
  • Paul Homer, Religious Studies Teacher and Director of Christian Service
