It is with regret that we must cancel the St. John's Prep Reunion for May 16, 2020. The health and safety of our alumni community are of the highest concern to St. John's Prep, and with the coronavirus epidemic, we cannot guarantee a safe, in-person event for the foreseeable future. Nor do we know when guidance from New York State would allow for an event this size. Those who paid for reunion tickets will be contacted about refunds.
In these uncertain times, know that St. John's Prep is always here for you. If we can be of any assistance, please let us know. St. John's Prep has served as an anchor in the lives of generations, and this network can serve you now when support for one another matters and when connecting takes on new meaning. Many of you were so looking forward to the reunion and reconnecting with friends and classmates. We hope that you will continue to reach out to one another and with your alma mater. Social media can be a wonderful place to forge these ties. Please check the Facebook SJP Alumni Group and our LinkedIn page, as well as the class specific Facebook groups that were started for this reunion.
In addition, we are working to help you find one another through an upcoming alumni newsletter and a website where alumni can privately connect on their own. Look for more on this in the coming weeks.
Please join the St. John's Prep community in prayer and in support of the dedicated healthcare, emergency, and essential-service workers--including many of our alumni--who are fighting this epidemic at the risk of their own health. They are truly living for others, fulfilling the hope of Bishop McEntegart that "young men and women will come forth from this school prepared to carry into the world the example of Christ-like living."
