2016 Father & Son Banquet
Fathers' Club President Doug Drysdale writes...
An all-time Priory record turnout of nearly 500 fathers, sons, and monks celebrated an extraordinary Priory night together at the Father & Son Banquet last Saturday.
Big Thumbs UP to Dave Wehner, Priory Class of '86 and current Chief Financial Officer of Facebook, & Fr. Gregory for their entertaining and insightful keynote conversation.
Many Thanks also to Jim Wehner, Dave's father and past Fathers' Club President, for joining us again for this special Priory father and son tradition.
Congratulations to our student speakers -- Form I David Hartenbach and Form VI STUCO President Connor Wright -- for wonderfully representing the first and last years of Priory.
Most Grateful to so many of our spiritual fathers, the monks of Saint Louis Abbey, for sharing this evening with us, led by Fr. Abbott and Fr. Paul, and to the Schola for a powerful performance of our closing hymn, God Of Great & God Of Small, featuring Br. Benet, Br. Dunstan, Fr. Dominic, and Fr. Gregory.
We Give Thanks for Priory and our time together as fathers and sons.
Laus Tibi Domine!
Fathers' Club President
