A sold out crowd of more than 500 fathers and sons attended Jesuit’s 2017 Father-Son Mass & Dinner on Saturday, Jan. 14.

The evening began at 5 p.m. with Mass in the Chapel of the North American Martyrs celebrated by Fr. Donald E. Saunders, S.J. Joining Fr. Saunders on the altar were school chaplain Fr. Kevin Dyer, S.J., and Fr. Christopher Fronk, S.J., who takes over as the school’s next president on January 25.

Following Mass, seniors Guy Cresson and Palmer Montalbano paid tribute to their fathers, Ron Montalbano ’83 and Dr. Guy Cresson (see videos below). Before exiting, the Jesuit choir led the congregation in the singing of the school’s alma mater.

After Mass, attendees made their way to the Student Commons for a delicious steak or chicken dinner (efficiently served to all in less than 15 minutes). Dinner was prepared on-site by young alumnus Max Gruenig ’06 and his team of talented cooks. Members of the Class of 2012 returned to Carrollton & Banks to assist with serving.
