Welcoming grandparents and grand-friends to Chaminade College Preparatory’s Chatsworth campus the Tuesday of Thanksgiving is a well-loved, annual tradition.
Today the tradition continued as hundreds of our grandest guests arrived in the morning to celebrate a Grandparents Mass with middle school students, faculty, and staff. Concelebrants Fr. Ted Ley ’58 and Fr. Joseph Raj led a beautiful Mass which reflected on the importance of grandparents. After Mass, guests and students enjoyed snacks and had the opportunity to pose for photos.

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.
Pleaseclick hereto fill out the form with the names of your deceased relatives and friends (including the class year of deceased alumni.)
From October 10 to October 20 Chaminade joined Catholic schools around the Los Angeles Archdiocese in celebrating Respect Life Week. Each October we try to set aside some time to focus on the very precious gift of human life and the ways that we can contribute to treating that gift with reverence and dignity. This year we focused on the seven Catholic Social Teaching Principles:
The Dignity of Human Life
Call to Family, Community, and Participation
Rights and Responsibilities
Options for the Poor and Vulnerable
The Dignity of Work and Rights of Workers
Solidarity, and Stewardship
Care of God’s Creation
We celebrated a beautiful Mass on each of our campuses highlighted by a candlelight procession symbolizing how we can be light to the world and stand up for human dignity. Gia Frank ’24, pledged to take care of God’s creation and challenges all of us to do the same saying “each of us has a calling to make the world a better place.” Alec Simoni ’18, says that respect life is about “valuing dignity in one another regardless of who or where you are in life.” He promotes the dignity of human life through the club that he founded, Caring Hearts, whose mission is to help sick and impoverished youth in our community and around the world.
