The 2009 Gathering
The 2009 Gathering was held on Monday, December 28, 2009. Thank you to PJ Gallagher '00 for chairing the event and helping raise over $1700 for the annual fund. Thanks also to our sponsor, FW Sullivans and Sean Murphy '95 (Sean opened up FW Sullivans recently and it's a great restaurant located at 2401 West Main St. in Richmond) for providing the delicious food for the evening.
Bendictine High School is proud to present a new event, Late Nite Catechism. The play will be held on Friday, February 12, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at the NEW auditorium at the Abbey.
Late Nite Catechism is a play by Vicki Quade & Maripat Donovan. Now in its 14th year, Late Nite Catechism has brought its nostalgic kick to every state in the U.S. as well as to Canada, the U.K., and Australia. Late Nite Catechism is an uproariously funny play that takes the audience back to their youth. The irrepressible "Sister" teaches class to a roomful of "students" (the audience). Throughout the course of the class the benevolent instructor rewards the "students" for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes. Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. However, even the most reluctant "students" will be clamoring to get into this Sister's "class."
