Most of our province high schools have held their graduations as of last weekend. Two of our schools shared how the festivities went for their seniors this year.


On Saturday, June 1, Don Bosco Prep’s (DBP) Class of 2024 gathered together with family, faculty and staff, Salesians, and friends at Granatell Stadium for the 109th Commencement Exercises. These 188 Ironmen join the ranks of over 12,000 alumni before them as graduates of Don Bosco Prep.

The director, Fr. Abraham Feliciano, SDB, gave the opening prayer. Next, DBP President Mr. Joseph R. Azzolino ’88, P’19; Principal Mr. Jeffrey Wojcik ’01, and Fr. Abe presented DBP’s diplomas. This year’s guest speaker was Mr. Marko Begonja ’15.

Don Bosco Prep’s beautiful Baccalaureate Mass was held on Friday evening at St. Paul Church in Ramsey, NJ, for the graduates, their families, faculty, and staff. It was celebrated by Fr. Abraham, who was joined by the other priests (concelebrants) of the Salesian community. This was the last time that these DBP students would come together for a Mass.This past Thursday, the class gathered with their parents for the annual senior dinner and a time to celebrate their accomplishments and merits. We are so proud of the Class of 2024!
