The Prep’s annual Lenten Mission Drive, started by Fr.Don Devine, SJ, benefits two Jesuit schools in Micronesia (Xavier High School and Yap Catholic High School). There are several Prep connections to these schools: Patrick Nolan, SJ, the uncle of Owen Fearon '16, taught at Yap; Fr. Mickey Corcoran, SJ, former Prep science teacher, was the principal of Yap for many years, and Fr. Tom Benz, SJ, former Prep Religious Studies teacher, is the superior of the Jesuit community of Micronesia.
Xavier and YAP provide an outstanding education for kids that otherwise would have little opportunity for a quality education. Our support through the Lenten Mission Drive helps to make that possible. We will again make this year's donation in Fr. Devine's memory.
