Separated by eight miles, the students at Chaminade College Preparatory’s two campuses come together once a year to celebrate the annual Founders Day Mass. It is a day to remember Blessed William Joseph Chaminade and his mission to be formed by Mary for the mission of Christ. It is also a day to recognize and honor the individuals who, through their work as staff or volunteers, have made significant contributions to Chaminade.
This year’s main celebrant, Bishop Joseph Vincent Brennan, D.D. led the Mass. He was joined by concelebrants, Fr. Riz Carranza of St. Peter Claver Parish (Simi Valley), Fr. Gerard Lecomte of St. John Eudes (Chatsworth), Msgr. Jim Gehl of St. Eurphrasia (Granada Hills), and Fr. Ted Ley ’58 (Chaminade College Preparatory).
During Mass, President Rob Webb presented each of this year’s four Founders with a medal and thanked them for their many contributions to Chaminade. Congratulations to the honorees, Antonio Jauregui, Gregory Klee, Kimila Ulrich, and Frederick Ulrich.
