La Salle Academy was the only Catholic high school to participate in the Black History Month Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Sunday, February 1st. More than 20 La Salle students and their families attended the Mass that was celebrated by Timothy Cardinal Dolan.
The La Salle family occupied the first six pews of the Church. Senior Noah Griffith ’15 gave the first reading while La Salle’s student government leadership, including Noah, Aidan Gomes ’15, and Adrian Corbin ’15, led the procession. His Eminence acknowledged La Salle’s presence and peeled off the procession to speak with the boys privately. After the Mass, he told Noah that he loved seeing the “sea of Cardinal red sweaters” and requested one for himself.
