Assistant Director of Campus Ministry and Edmund Rice Christian Brother North America Advocacy Coordinator Sean D'Alfonso describes what the Lower and Upper Schools, along with some help from a most generous alumnus, were able to do this Thanksgiving to "stand in solidarity with those marginalized by poverty and injustice."
Filmed and edited by Tristan Oliveira '14, this video debuted at the 2014 President's Dinner honoring Mariano and Clara Rivera. With proceeds from the evening going to support the Prep's Campus Ministry and Christian Service programs, Oliveira put together this video to show the Iona Preparatory K-12 that getting involved with Campus Ministry is part of becoming an Iona Man.
