Chaminade Celebrates Founders Day

On Founders Day, Chaminade’s two campuses come together as one to celebrate Mass and remember Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, whose feast day is January 22. Also at this Mass, individuals who have made significant contributions to the school are honored. This year, Chaminade recognized four employees as Founders, Andrea Burman (English teacher), Janet Koller (vice president of finance and operations), June Martin (administrative assistant), and Fr. Ted Ley, S.M.’58 (chaplain).

This year’s principal celebrant was Fr. Martin Solma, who is serving his last year as provincial of the Marianist Province of the United States. He was joined by concelebrants Fr. Andrew Chung from St. Genevieve in Panorama City, Fr. John-Mario Garcia and Fr. Preston Passos from St. Mary Magdalene in Camarillo, Fr. Anthony Garcias from St. John Chrysostom in Inglewood, and Chaminade chaplains Fr. Ted Ley ’58 and Fr. Josephraj Rymond.

During Founders Day, Fr. Solma also led our Marianist community in a renewal of their vows, including Bro. David Betz, Bro. Jack Dempsey, Bro. Kumar Kambhampati, Fr. Ted Ley ’58, Bro. Tom Oles, and Fr. Josephraj Rymond.

After Mass, in recognition for being a model Marianist school, Fr. Solma presented President Robert S. Webb, on behalf of Chaminade, with an exceptional framed image of the shrine of Our Lady of the Pillar. Located in Zaragoza, Spain, this is where Blessed William Joseph Chaminade received his inspiration to start the Marianists. Prior to Founders Day, only the three Marianist universities – Chaminade University (Honolulu), St. Mary’s University (San Antonio), and the University of Dayton – had received such an honor.

A Time to Share Your All Souls’ Day Prayer Requests

img_7433Dear Chaminade Family,

Each year at this season, the Chaminade Marianist Community is closely joined in interest and concern with all members of the Chaminade College Preparatory family. November is a time to share with one another the memory of relatives, friends, former teachers, and students who have been called by God to that eternal life we all hope to share.

All Souls’ Day, November 2, is a way for each one of us to remember our departed loved ones. To make our prayers more specific and significant, we invite you to submit the names of your deceased relatives and friends (including the class year of deceased alumni.) We will place these names on the altar in our Marianist community chapel and remember them as we celebrate the Eucharist throughout the month of November.

Let this be our offering to you. We are grateful for your continuing friendship and are privileged to minister to you through this on-going Chaminade tradition.

Please click here to fill out the form with the names of your deceased relatives and friends (including the class year of deceased alumni.)

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Joseph Raj, S.M.
Fr. Ted Ley, S.M. ’58
