The quartet also included Colby Medeiros '22, Jon Brand '23, and Nico Fanuele '22. The winning time was also an Austin Prep school record.

Join the Choir for Rome Pilgrimage
As was noted in a recent letter from Head of School, James Hickey, Ph.D., Austin Prep’s Choir has been invited to return to Vatican City to attend an audience with Pope Francis and headline several performances in the Eternal City. The choir visited Rome during the Christmas season in 2019, which was the School's last trip abroad before the Covid-19 pandemic. Some highlights of the trip include singing during mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, in the Basilica of St. Francis (in Assisi), and in the Basilica of St. Augustine where the relics of his mother, St. Monica, are held. The tour also includes taking in the grandeur of Rome and visiting major pilgrimage sites.
School-sponsored travel abroad opportunities are ordinarily reserved exclusively for students, but given the unique nature of this occasion, Austin Prep, in the spirit of unitas, is extending an opportunity to all current students and their family members – parents, grandparents, and siblings – to travel on this pilgrimage. This trip will be the only international offering in the 2022-2023 school year, and the earliest that Austin Prep may once again have this opportunity in Vatican City is December 2024.
If there are students thinking about joining the Austin Prep Choir, now seems as good a time as ever. If students weren’t thinking about it, they might consider it now. The dates of Austin Prep’s nine-day Christmas season Pilgrimage and Choir Performance Tour are December 28, 2022 to January 5, 2023. Registration and a deposit are due in the Academic Office by June 20.
Father Patrick Armano, School Chaplain, will serve as our chaplain for the trip. For complete details about the itinerary, please click here. Please be in touch with Michael McLaughlin, Head of Middle School, with any questions at email@example.com. Brochures are available in the Head’s Office and the Academic Office.
Have a Great Summer!
