Of hosting the meeting Principal Jason D. Curtis said: “It is a privilege to offer hospitality to the Raleigh Deanery, and give our priests the opportunity to visit with Gibbons students. It also gives our educators and students an opportunity to express our love and support of their priestly ministry.”

Cardinal Gibbons High School had the privilege yesterday of hosting the quarterly meeting of the Raleigh Deanery. More than 20 priests, representing the parishes, missions, and Catholic campus ministries of the deanery attended. They enjoyed lunch provided by the school and student-led tours of the campus.

Of hosting the meeting Principal Jason D. Curtis said: “It is a privilege to offer hospitality to the Raleigh Deanery, and give our priests the opportunity to visit with Gibbons students.  It also gives our educators and students an opportunity to express our love and support of their priestly ministry.”

Gibbons students greeted the priests of our deanery at their cars when they arrived on campus and escorted them to the school. There, more students, in turn, welcomed them into our home. The priests gathered in Plant Ops for their meeting, which started at 10 a.m.

Among those who arrived early was Fr. Justin Kerber, C.P. He is Dean of the Raleigh Deanery and Rector of Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral.  

“We have a lot of new pastors and I wanted them to see Cardinal Gibbons and our support of it,” he said, of holding the meeting at Gibbons. “This is the Diocese’s high school and I am always impressed by how respectful the students are, and I wanted to show our support to the students.”

After the meeting, many priests were spotted touring the school with student guides, who often were also their parishioners. That was the case with Fr. Edward Wolanski, C.P., parochial vicar of Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral, and Isabel Maiorano ’18.

Fr. Wolanski described the tour in one word – marvelous. “It is encouraging to see a school so vibrant and with such a visible display of pride, in what students can achieve, in the fruits of all their education and prayer,” he said. “It is NOT just a building of rooms, it is a living building.”
