Congratulations to the St. Philip Neri Club for receiving the 2021 New Jersey State Governor’s Jefferson Award for outstanding leadership service to the community. The Jefferson Awards are a National Volunteer Recognition Program established by the American Institute for Public Service in cooperation with the U.S. Senate and the White House. Volunteer Groups are recognized for fostering a sense of greater community and well-being, directly impacting the lives of children, the elderly and less fortunate among us. The St. Philip Neri Club, over 100 members OP Ram strong, give thanks to the entire OP community for helping make a significant difference in our world.
Senior Jake De Guzman was recently honored with the 2021 New Jersey State Governor's Jefferson Award in the Youth In Service category. According to The Governor's Office of Volunteerism, which administers the award, honorees "lead and inspire both peers and adults to participate in volunteer efforts and/or those youth who are dedicated to establishing new or supporting existing community service programs."

"What makes OP such a great place to go to school is the community. Everyone at OP is encouraging and wants me to succeed in both my academic and athletic activities. The OP family is willing to help each other out and we all share a common goal to be the best versions of ourselves."
"One of my favorite memories at OP was in Mrs. Michalski's tenth grade religion class when we sang "Only Jesus" and the 11th graders joined in with us. It was also a great moment when I found out that I made Varsity Baseball as a freshman."
"The best thing about teaching at Oratory is the students. I love interacting with them, and I love seeing the art they create. I feel lucky to be able to teach a variety of digital and fine art electives that allow each student to express themselves creatively in the medium they enjoy."
