News and Highlights 




Alumni Soccer:

30 of our alumni turned out for our traditional black Friday game.  Michael Hoffman proudly represented the class of 1980 and a great time was had by all.

Bar Night:

The pre Thanksgiving celebrations once again brought a nice turnout to "End of Elm" in Morristown.  The class of 2009 was well represented.  This is such a wonderful tradition, we hope you can join us next year!hat


What a memorable evening seeing and catching up with so many alumni from classes ending in '1 or 6'.  Everyone gathered at the school, first to have a tour of the school and then a short walk across the field for a tour of the new building, DaGaeta Hall.  Alumni young and old were truly impressed with the progress that Oratory has made.  One of the highlights of the day was having Fr. Manning as celebrant of the mass.  A big thank you to Ed McDonnell '60 for making the trip from Florida.


24th Annual Golf Classic:
Mother Nature was certainly on our side, it was a perfect golf day!  Thank you to our alumni who supported our annual golf outing.

NYC Alumni Reception:

Great views, perfect weather, delicious food and drinks, made for a memorable night.  A big thank you to Kevin Greene '77 for providing the perfect venue to host our alumni from the Metropolitan area.

New Building - DaGaeta Hall:
We are very excited about the progress of our new building and we anticipate occupancy of the first floor by November.  If you would like a tour of the building, please give me a call.
We are in the process of developing a LinkedIn page, which will be an opportunity for our OP community to network.  To become a member of our group, please join group; Oratory Prep Community Professional Network.
3 on 3 Basketball and Bench Off:
What a great turnout on Sat.,June 11th for our Basketball Tournament and Bench Off. The gym was filled with alumni competing to be the champs. After very competitive and grueling games, the team consisting of Mike Hoffman '80, Matt Billups '12, E.J. Damiano '00, Matt Muoio '16, Dave and John Hoffman were the victors. The Bench Off was also competitive, with our reigning champ Jeff Culbert '78 training all year to keep his title. Although there were valiant efforts, Jeff kept his title with 81 reps.  In second place was Rob Crum '05 with 23 reps and in third place was Tom Duhig '60 with 20 reps. 

Thank you to all who supported this event and making the 3 on 3 Basketball and Bench Off a great Oratory tradition.

Young Alumni Golf Outing:  
What a beautiful day for golf!  Several young alumni attended the event on Sunday, June 12th at Warrenbrook Golf Course.  The golfers were not only able to improve their game, they were able to catch up with fellow alums.
