SPRING 2008 M A , P F S P ’ H S President’s Message Peace of Christ! Dear St Paul’s Alumni and Friends, Writing to the Romans, St Paul expresses the marks of a true Christian. Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honour. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers. (Romans 12:9–13) It seems appropriate for us to be reminded of what our patron says in light of how our community has been challenged since the last issue of The Crusader. Often, when we hear the word challenge we think of hardship or something negative. We know, however, that this is not always the case. Each year another class of grade 9 students is challenged as they enter St Paul’s. Our returning students are challenged to welcome all those arriving at St Paul’s for the first time. This year, they met the challenges of welcoming the new students in September and especially during the Freshman Retreat in December. In doing so, our students carried out the Magis–the Jesuit philosophy of doing the more, for the greater glory of God, and therefore for others. Complementary to what happens in the school is what continues among our alumni. One could not help but be inspired by the way Jim Tennant ’66, the 2007 Ignatian Challenge Award recipient, outdid us all in showing honour when he gave tribute to those who had a lasting impact on him as a person. In receiving our Ignatian Challenge Award, he challenged us to remember each day, each gift that comes to us by virtue of the St Paul’s community to which each of us belongs as ‘just a blessing.’ That Jim sees each day as it unfolds as a blessing in itself is a grace. Along with Jim and his family, I would like to express my thanks to Nick Laping ’61 and the Advancement Office staff, along with Pierre Campeau ’79 and Jeff Morton, and all those who attended or contributed to the Dinner, whose concerted efforts led to $107,500 going directly to the Jim Tennant Family Bursary. This fund, and others like it at St Paul’s, ensures that qualified students who have the ability and desire for a St Paul’s education and formation will not be denied entrance due to financial constraints. The challenge accepted by Jim Tennant and all of the Tribute Dinner attendees and supporters coincided this year with the loss of an admired and talented grade 11 student at St Paul’s, Chris Gyles. Holding these two events together was most certainly a challenge for the St Paul’s community. It was a sad moment in our history and yet also a call to rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, and to persevere in prayer. Deeply grateful for the care of extended to their family, Mr and Mrs Gyles have established a student award for a student from Chris’ class, both this year and next, and a bursary in Chris’ memory. St Paul’s is most grateful to the community of St Ignatius Church which provided us with a sacred space to mourn the loss of one of ours. To Frs Boutilier and Mulvihill–thank you. Your fast-moving planning of Chris’ funeral and the homily attest to Ignatian zeal in the name of St Paul’s High School. To the Gyles family: our prayers are with you always. Service is at the core of a St Paul’s education. What motivates that service is love and at the core of service, that very love, is Christ. Each of us challenged to contemplate Christ, to allow him to be part of what organizes our thoughts, images and actions as we live and move and have our being. On December 17th, the school celebrated this love and appeal to service with the unveiling and blessing of Christ Rising, a Frederick Hart bronze sculpture. It has been placed at the centre of the school. My prayer for our community is that the meaning of this statue goes far beyond a beautiful piece of fine art and into the hearts and minds of all who encounter it; that it becomes a source of strength, inspiration and vision as we contemplate the moment in salvation history it depicts –the resurrection. At the request of the benefactors, whose names are listed in this issue of The Crusader, Christ Rising is dedicated to Fr Joseph (Jakie) Driscoll SJ, former Rector of St Paul’s High School, and to all the Jesuits who have worked at the School since 1933. Thank you to all for your own contributions in meeting challenges as students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the community of St Paul’s. Fr Alan Fogarty SJ President Features T Christ Rising Placing Christ at the centre of the school–a work of art arrives at St Paul’s depicting Christ’s Resurrection. At a ceremony in December, the Frederick Hart bronze sculpture was unveiled, blessed and then dedicated to Fr Joseph ‘Jakie’ Driscoll SJ and to all Jesuits who have served St Paul’s since 1933. 2 Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius Loyola 7 Can a busy teenager take up to one hour per day in prayer and reflection? Is it really something that high school aged youth can benefit from or understand? Most definitely yes, contends Mr Johnston Smith ’67, who, five years ago, started a grade 12 course in the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola. his issue of The Crusader explores the central foundations of our school. The addition of Frederick Hart’s Christ Rising, as the article describes, places Christ at the physical centre of the school. The article on the Spiritual Exercises highlights an exciting and very challenging course that is offered to our grade 12 students. This new course in the Spiritual Exercises touches on the very foundations of the Jesuits and Ignatian Spirituality. The Spiritual Exercises emerged from St Ignatius’ experiences at Montserrat and Manresa in 1522, upon which he reflected during his pilgrimages to Rome and Jerusalem and his studies in Barcelona and Paris. The Exercises were ultimately incorporated into the founding principles of the Society of Jesus and were approved by Pope Paul III in 1548. St Paul’s emphasis on the development of the whole person with a balance of academic, extracurricular and spiritual formation emerges from the Spiritual Exercises and becomes the foundation for all of the activities and events written about in this issue. “Just a Blessing” Ignatian Challenge Award Tribute Dinner Honouree Jim Tennant ’66 acknowledged the many Jesuits and teachers of St Paul’s that have shaped his life as student, alumnus, board member and parent. In a heartfelt presentation, Mr Tennant looked back and touched on over 40 years of history at St Paul’s. 8 In this issue, we remember that the school’s spiritual direction and foundation began when a wounded soldier, Íñigo Oñaz López de Loyola, sat convalescing and reflecting on Christ and the lives of the Saints, while considering the meaning of his life almost 500 years ago.

Christ Rising The revelation of an artist’s creative vision and expression, the moment when all can see and appreciate the true value of a work are tied to this dramatic moment. December 17, 2007 was no exception to this with the unveiling of Frederick Hart’s Christ Rising during a liturgy in Murray Hall. Contributed by Martin Lussier ’03 T he purchase, arrival, and placement of the work are no small coincidence, said Fr. Fogarty. “As Jesuits working in any apostolate, it is imperative that we reflect theologically on what we’re doing. This puts Christ at the centre of the school.” bronze underneath. Following the ceremony, many students stopped to examine Christ Rising in greater detail, and throughout the week since its installment, students have taken time to stop, contemplate and examine the statue. Indeed, the idea of Christ at the centre of the school and school life becomes very apparent when walking through the front doors of the school. Standing more than seven feet tall on its base and weighing almost 350 pounds, the bronze sculpture’s dramatic presence depicts the moment of Christ’s Resurrection. Its immediate impact is undeniable. The addition of Christ Rising to the school’s front entrance is only one of many initiatives undertaken by Fr Fogarty to reinforce the concept of “Christ at the centre” of the school’s life, ethos, mission, collective vision and community. Recently, the seal of the Society of Jesus was boldly emblazoned on the front entrance windows and several office doors around the school campus, marking the presence of the Society of Jesus at the school. Funding for those symbols was provided by the donation of the Class of 2007. With like effect during the unveiling, the statue was placed at the very centre of the assembled student community, staff and generous benefactors. The unveiling ceremony, presided over by St Paul’s President Fr Alan Fogarty SJ and Fr Michel Boutilier SJ featured the resounding voices of St Paul’s 85-strong student choir led by Mrs Jacqueline Jackson and prayerful Litany of the Saints offered by Fr Boutilier. A sense of drama and anticipation hung in the air as the students, staff and benefactors in the audience awaited the pending reveal. Fr Alan Fogarty SJ and Fr Michel Boutilier SJ receive Christ Rising in early December. Fr Fogarty described his thoughts upon seeing Christ Rising for the first time, “when I first saw Christ Rising about five years ago I remember thinking it would be amazing to have this powerful work of art available to everyone who is part of our school community.” Reactions from students can certainly be characterized as positive. During the unveiling, students’ expressions reflected a sense of awe or wonder as the cloth was removed to reveal the 2 The artist, Frederick Hart (1943–1999), declared of his work his intention to draw people into an examination of the greater mysteries of life. Said Hart, “I believe that art has a moral responsibility, that is must pursue something higher than itself. Art must be a part of life. It must exist in the domain of the common man.” By placing Christ Rising at the centre of the school, both spiritually and literally, Fr Fogarty is inviting students and all members of our community to consider Christ’s presence in our lives. “My hope was, and remains, that our students, staff and families, alumni and friends would be so inspired that they began to pray, to see this very public part of our school, a place to reflect and find peace, and that all would in some way, carry this image of Christ wherever they go in life. The idea is to create a spiritual environment so that as we go about our normal business of the day, we see moments, we catch Christ Rising glimpses of Jesus throughout the day in the statue which may draw us to His mystery, and to this moment, the mystery of this moment which is central to our faith,” Fr Fogarty said. Fr Fogarty indicated that the acquisition of Christ Rising would certainly not have been possible without the gracious help of many benefactors. “[These are] all people of deep faith who together have agreed to dedicate, to make possible the acquisition of this piece of fine art for St Paul’s High School as an expression of their gratitude to their dear friend, Fr Joseph ‘Jakie’ Driscoll SJ and all of the Jesuits who taught at and cared for St Paul’s High School,” Fr Fogarty said. St Paul’s would like to thank Mrs Gladys Clary, The Crowley Family, Graduates of St Paul’s High School Class of 2007, The Jesuits in English Canada, The Pazdor Family, The Sellors Family, Ted and Claire Charne and Mrs Ninette Webster for their generous contributions to the school through this sacred work of art.

The Trip of aLifetime Contributed by Mackenzie Acheson ’08, Crusader Hockey Team Captain T he trip of a lifetime! That is what Coach Harder described to us before the St Paul’s hockey team embarked on a thirteen day trip to Eastern Europe. We were set to travel to Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Germany leaving on Boxing Day. Led by Head Coach Andrew Harder ’93, Assistant Coach Chad Horrill ’93, Manager Rolf Krebs, student manager Scott Coubrough ’08 and Mr Hurton, along with many of our parents, we arrived in Vienna, Austria, following a full day of travel. After three days of sightseeing in Vienna and Budapest and two exhibition games, both victories, against teams from Stockerauer and another Budapest (UTE Budapest), we travelled northwest to Bratislava, Slovakia. The New Year celebration in Bratislava was a party in the streets and set in an unforgettable environment (a huge party zone at the historical city centre) with live music and shows, as well as a great fireworks show on the bank of the Danube River. On January 2nd, we left Bratislava and travelled north into the Czech Republic, heading straight to Pardubice for the World Junior quarter-final game between Canada and Finland, which was 4 To see more Crusader Hockey in Europe photographs and read Mr Hurton’s travel blog search “Europe” in the St Paul’s Online community. really exciting. In the end, we were also able to attend the semi-final and final games. Thanks to Hockey Canada, we had great seats and everywhere you turned at the games you saw Canadian jerseys. On January 5th, we got ready for the gold medal game, which included drenching ourselves in body paint and making signs, which made it on TSN. The game was unbelievable and it was unreal to seeCanada win. Along the way, we played our third and most challenging game against HC Sparta Praha, a great team which moved the puck very well. After being down 1–3 and 3–4, we came back and beat them 6–5 in a shootout where Pat Henderson sniped the winner for us. For our final game, we travelled west into Mitterteich, Germany where we played the EHC Stiftland team. We were greeted on the ice by a five year old mascot, dressed up in a dragon costume. After the game, the host team provided a dinner for us. The next morning, we drove to the Frankfurt airport, which meant that we unfortunately had to go home. This trip was an unbelievable experience. As we toured these countries, it was really cool to see how different they were from Canada. Most of the buildings were really old, tall, closely built together and had a lot of historical significance attached to them. During our two weeks we played five games, watched three World Junior games, toured five countries and more importantly got to know one another better and really gelled as a team. It was an unforgettable two weeks and proved to be the trip of a lifetime! News & Events iPOP: The Freshman Retreat Contributed by Sean Stephensen ’11 T Daniel Oberton ’10 Defends Chess Title B y successfully defending his St Paul’s Chess championship against a tournament field of 30 players, grade 10 Daniel Oberton ’10 has proven that his victory last year was more than just good fortune. With back-to-back championships, Daniel has taken the first two titles on the way to a possible 4-peat, a rare achievement. his year’s Freshman Retreat, to welcome the new grade nine and ten students, was labelled with the theme iPOP. For those who don’t know, this stands for individual pieces one puzzle, and symbolizes that the freshmen are individual pieces, who will fit into the puzzle of the St Paul’s community. The Freshman Retreat, or TFR, has been in place for seven years, and the purpose of it is to bring new students closer together. we are a special part of the unity. Spiritual growth was a key theme throughout the retreat and freshmen learned to recognize God in more places. Through various activities organised by the team leaders and staff, there were many different ways that students could develop. Students become stronger in accepting people of different races, religions, and other beliefs and values. TFR also values the bond between members of the St Paul’s community and encourages freshmen to participate as much as they can, so that they also feel Special thanks to everyone that put so much effort into organising the Freshman Retreat. All of the staff, grounds crew, leaders and buddies, parent volunteers, and Jesuit fathers: you were a key part of the retreat, and it wouldn’t have been the same without all the time you took to make sure we would have a good time. e thanks to all th “So awesome… ssible” lped make it po people who he “Best retreat ever ” Personally, I got a lot out of the retreat. I can honestly say that I strengthened myself spiritually, made lots of new friends,and became more confident. I learned to open myself up more and had an amazing experience that I will remember all of my life. Four straight titles were first accomplished at St Paul’s by Patrick Morhun ’83. It was considered such a feat that the St Paul’s Chess Tournament Trophy became the Patrick Morhun Trophy in Patrick’s senior year and only one other player, Ronaldo Opinga ’92, has repeated the feat. Conrado Padilla, ’88 the only other player with three titles, took the trophy in his grade 10, 11 and 12 years. Brothers Marko ’99 and David Klaponski ’03 have three titles between them. The final match pitted Oberton (above with chess moderator Kevin Sterner) against another grade 9 upstart, Steven Cooper ’11, who was making his own bid to take a run at the 4-peat. This year’s grade level champions were (runner-up): Steven Cooper ’11 (Andrew Konopelny ’11), Daniel Oberton ’10 (Matthew Burns ’10), Stephan Baluta ’09 (Carey Buss ’09), and Luc Buhunicky ’08 (Ben Scoville ’08). Crusader Senior Debaters Bring Home the Angus! I t was a bitterly cold February evening. It was an evening that in and of itself would do nothing to raise consciousness of the ominous threat of global warming. That task would be left to the evening’s debate resolution: Resolved that Canada assume a global leadership role in environmental stewardship. The 8th Annual Angus Reid ’65 Debating Tournament was held on February 12, 2008 with seven Winnipeg high schools competing for the Angus Reid Trophy. Crusader debaters included Martyn Langstaff ’08, Ethan Chess ’10, Douglas Feltham ’10, Alex Megyeri ’10, Sean Timlick ’10 and Alex Izydorczyk ’11. Martyn Langstaff ’08 and Ethan Chess ’10 with the Angus Reid ’65 Trophy At the conclusion of the debate, Ethan Chess was ranked 2nd in individual scoring and Martyn Langstaff was ranked 6th and together this Crusader duo of Langstaff and Chess were awarded 1st place honours in doubles competition. This marks the first time Crusader debaters have won our host tournament. Also, grade 9 Alex Izydorczyk placed a remarkable 9th in individual scoring. This was particularly impressive considering the fact that Alex is actually a junior debater invited to compete in the tournament on very short notice. The highlight of the evening was the success of Langstaff and Chess in bringing home the Angus Reid ’65 Trophy. Adding to this victory is the great experience gained by a very young Crusader Senior Debate team which bodes well for future individual and team success. 5 From the Principal being named the Athletics Manitoba High School Coach of the Year (for Cross-Country and Track). You can read more in the Crusader Sports report (pages 12 and 13), but win or lose, I am very proud of the hard work, dedication and fine play exhibited by all of our school teams. With all of the recent success it is easy to become complacent about the number of championships, but each is a truly remarkable accomplishment; well done Cru! Faith and Justice St Paul’s continues to seek “the Magis” or greater good by deepening our student’s awareness of the importance of a relationship with God and providing them with experiences which challenge them consider working for more just societal structures. Dear Alumni and Friends, T he school year has so far been filled with the usual hum of classes, intramural sports, wonderful drama, brilliant debates, excellent retreats, Crusader Raffle and mission fund drives punctuated with exciting sports victories, the December dedication ceremony of the new “Christ Rising” statue which featured our over 85 student strong St Paul’s Choir. In November, the traditional month for remembrance and honouring those who have gone before us, St Paul’s experienced the heartbreaking loss of one of our own. The tragic death of Chris Gyles ’09, the gravity of his loss to the Gyles family, including his brother Matt Gyles ’04, to his closest friends and to the St Paul’s community, poignantly demonstrated the fragility of human life, but also strengthened the entire community’s understanding of the importance of love, kinship, care and of community itself. Despite the tragic circumstances and the attendant grief, through the days following Chris’ untimely passing, up to and after his funeral where Crusader colours were worn to honour Chris, there was a palpable sense of community connection, camaraderie, fellowship and hope which comes from faith and trust in God and one another. That week fittingly ended with our annual Remembrance Day service where through a fantastic combination of music from the St Paul’s Band program, the choir, a cadet colour guard and a visual display created by Zach van der Hooft ’09. We honoured those who have given their lives in pursuit of freedom and in service to others. Crusader Athletics The St Paul’s athletic program continues to excel. A special mention is deserved the JV Cross Country team who won an unprecedented sixth straight MHSAA Provincial Championship. Congratulations as well to Coach Jeff McMillan on 6 Mike Watson returns to St Paul’s this September to take up the reins from Alan Carruthers ’88 in the position of Vice-Principal Students. This past year, Mike had taken a one-year sabbatical, which included winning a CIS national football championship as Defensive Line Coach with the University of Manitoba Bisons. Mike returns this fall for his tenth year at St Paul’s. Mike, his wife Leslie (SMA ’88) and daughters Sarah and Kate will once again be welcome voices in the halls of St Paul’s. In addition to the already well established Christian Service and Christian Life Community Programs and the very successful Freshman (Gr 9) and Kairos retreat Programs, we have implemented a new Grade 10 retreat this year. We are continuing to coordinate a day program where Grade 9 students visit the worship places of other faiths such as a synagogue, a Hindu temple, a mosque, and an Ukrainian Orthodox church. We have implemented a Grade 11 Religion course on Social Justice for First Term and World Religions in Second Term. The St Paul’s Human Rights Group has been involved in a letter writing and petition campaign opposing the death sentence of Donald Smith to which the Governor of Montana recently sent them a negative reply. Nevertheless, their efforts have helped to raise consciousness of important issues. The Maroon and White Society has led Mission Weeks in which they have raised $2,160 for the Braveheart Foundation (story on page 17), over $700 for Fire Relief at St Ignatius School, over $1,000 in support of relief for spinal cord injury victims, and helped organize twenty-three hampers for Christmas Cheer Board. The Student Council also donated over $7,500 in support of Guardian Angels for Breast Cancer Research through the 30th edition of the Walkathon. The Arts The Band Program achieved very high marks at the Optimist Festival earning three invitations to the National Festival. The Art and Band Programs are going to Chicago for a cultural trip where they will visit various galleries, attend various concerts, perform for local schools, and collaborate with Loyola (Jesuit) Academy. The St Paul’s Choir gave a well-received Valentine’s Day Concert at St Mary’s Academy and they have significantly contributed to our liturgies. The Crusader News has produced several very high quality editions of the paper. The St Paul’s Dramatic Society put on a fabulous production of The Werewolf’s Curse in December and the St Paul’s Debating Society won, for the first time, the seventh annual Angus Reid ’65 Debate Tournament! Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Alan Carruthers ’88, our Vice-Principal Students whose term in that office comes to an end in June. Mr Carruthers will have given 8 years of yeoman service to St Paul’s in this role. Although the school will thank him more formally in June, I would like to acknowledge the great work he has done in helping to maintain a safe and respectful school climate, and in providing me with invaluable advice, assistance and support. He will remain at St Paul’s as a teacher in the coming year. We are very fortunate that Mr Mike Watson, who is on a one year leave of absence, has decided to return to St Paul’s to take up the role of VPS. Mr Watson has large shoes to fill, but I believe he has the necessary gifts and talents to thrive in the position and to help maintain the excellent school climate and discipline the St Paul’s community has come to expect. Sincerely, Tom Lussier, Principal Spiritual Exercises Called to Love, Called to Serve Six years of the Spiritual Exercises at St Paul’s Can a busy teenager take up to one hour per day in prayer and reflection? Contributed by Martin Lussier ’03 I s it really something that high school aged youth can benefit from or understand? Most definitely yes, contends Mr Johnston Smith ’67, who, five years ago, started a grade 12 course in the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola. “It works in different ways for different people. How open they are to growth is one of the key factors. If they come into this program with a view that they want to get closer to Jesus, know him better, and they are willing to be formed, they profit enormously, and they do the full exercises. People move at different rates,” Smith said. The Exercises have been present, at least in adapted forms, for many years in student life at the school. Kairos, a 4-day retreat program offered to grade 11 and 12 students is an adaptation of the ideas and themes of the Exercises. Given the success of the Kairos program, which began in 2000, why was it important to bring the full Exercises to the school? “The Jesuit Province of English Canada several years ago did study of where they wanted to go, and they prioritized themselves. Their number one priority is the promotion of the Spiritual Exercises.” Smith said. “The Exercises proper, as we are doing with our students, are fundamental to understanding Ignatius, and I think of a certain kind of spirituality–Ignatian Spirituality.” The Exercises in their usual form are made up of a four “week” retreat where participants come to a deeper and greater understanding of God, prayer, and ultimately of themselves and their mission. Students at the school “make” the Exercises over the course of the school year, allowing for experiential learning and extended reflection—not to mention a busy schedule. This follows the “Annotation 19” approach that St Ignatius envisioned when he originally established the Exercises almost 500 years ago. The Exercises were officially approved by Pope Paul III in 1548. The course itself has four main objectives: to gain greater self-awareness and to become a more fully integrated person; to provide a framework for sorting out conflicting values and desires; to help make major decisions; and, to deepen the retreatant’s relationship with God through learning to know Jesus more fully, love him more completely and follow him more closely. Students making the Exercises meet with a spiritual director once per school cycle, or roughly once a week. Students are also expected to commit to pray, every day. The Exercises program also has a group meeting aspect, where retreatants share their experiences with one another and their progress through the Exercises. capable of at that point in time.” The school makes a significant commitment to the program with Mr Smith, Fr Con Mulvihill SJ and Mr Ray Comeault all directing students this year. Eventually, they are praying an hour a day, or more, Smith indicated. “People move at different rates. You sort of have to ease them into it, because they don’t think they’ll have time … Some of them are outstandingly advanced … others are at a rudimentary stage. That is why we have individual directors who can tailor the experience to what the particular retreatant needs and is “The [group] meetings really helped me open up and share what was on my mind and how I felt about certain experiences I had.” Students share their thoughts: “ I think the group meetings really helped change my ideas about prayer, God and Jesus.” “I really didn’t pray much at all prior to this. Now I pray, and prayer is really an emotional experience.” “Prayer has become a very integral part of my life.” “Most meaningful to me was my life’s mission statement. I have a clear cut goal of who I want to be and how I want to live.” “[It has brought] me close to everyone around me.” “ I have grown profoundly in knowledge of myself and Christ.” 7 Tribute Dinner Just a Blessing 2007 Ignatian Challenge Award Tribute Dinner Sponsors St Paul’s High School expresses its deepest gratitude to Mr Tennant ’66 for accepting the 2007 Ignatian Challenge Award.

I n accepting the 2007 Ignatian Challenge Award, Mr Jim Tennant ’66 acknowledged the Jesuits and lay leaders of St Paul’s who shaped his experiences as a student, alumnus, board chair, and parent at St Paul’s High School. In a superbly crafted and prepared speaking and video presentation, Jim described each of these experiences as gifts that he has received through his involvement in the St Paul’s community. Photographs and memories flowed from his heartfelt presentation as he recalled his own former teachers and mentors, Jesuit Fathers Toppings, Joe Murray, John Murray, John Pungente, St Clair Monaghan and Father John Holland; past school Directors, Jesuit Fathers Jakie Driscoll, David Creamer, Eric MacLean and Paul Crouch; former teacher and counsellor Fr Earl Smith and the school’s first lay principal, Mr Larry Franz and business manager, Mr Paul Leatherdale. Jim began his remarks by expressing his gratitude to his wife Jan and brother John ’69 for their patience and support and dedicating his award “to all the wonderful people of the St Paul’s community who over the years have been there to Sheppard me back on course as I so often needed.” Recalling his first day as a St Paul’s student, Jim described the certain trepidation he felt going to a school where he knew nary a sole. were an allusion to Jim’s first experience of the Catholic Liturgy. “At different times in my life I return to that first day in the old Chapel.

Greetings were offered from His Honour the Honourable Jim’s presentation alternated between the video presentation and his own spoken words in a chapter John Harvard, Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba, Mr Tennant’s classmate and Premier of Manitoba, -like presentation. The end of each chapter, and the beginning of each video segment, was signified Premier Gary Doer ’66, Mayor Sam Katz, Fr Richard Arsenault, Chancellor of the Archdiocese by the remark ‘Just a Blessing.’ As a young Protof Winnipeg, Fr Jean-Marc Laporte SJ, Provincial estant student at a Catholic school, these remarks Superior of the Jesuits in English Canada, and St Paul’s High School President, Fr Alan Fogarty, SJ. Mr Tennant ’66 was introduced by Mr Charles Scott ’66, a long-time friend of the family and an executive with the Tennant family business, Piston Ring Service. Mr Justice Alan MacInnes ’60 served as Master of ceremonies for the evening. From left, Premier Gary Doer ’66, his wife Ginny Devine, Jan Tennant, Mayor Sam Katz and Jim Tennant ’66 Tribute Dinner Altar Boy; he added that he knew pretty much everything. He explained to me that even the ‘guys in skirts’ knew the Latin was all mumble jumble and that SJ stood for ‘soft job’. Little did I realize that many years later as Premier, Gary Doer would perform his duties in a similar way, calm and in control with a most definite self confident smirk and swagger at his own soft job.” On Frs Pungente and John Murray “ Four years of plays and productions…taught me much about getting it done creatively, on budget and on time…They were both producers extraordinaire and taught all of us to use the resources and talents given to us and simply to make the best of it. No whining allowed.” Selected excerpts from Jim Tennant’s acknowledgement: On Fr Toppings: “The bell rang. I headed for 9A, Fr James Toppings, ‘the doorknob’, and to meet my new classmates … Some twenty years later, I shared with Fr Eric McLean the impact that Fr Topping’s teachings had had on me and how I still had his recipe card with the Latin proverb that he gave me the last day of grade nine. Shortly after that ‘Old Jimmie’ as he called himself was in Winnipeg visiting the school and old friends…Jan made ‘Old Jimmie’ a simple cheese sandwich as he charmed and captivated my children. It was time to go when he said, “I understand you still have your card.” I pulled it from my desk drawer … with a quiet self assurance and a knowing smile. He remembered my proverb. Once again he gave me my direction.” On Fr St Clair Monaghan: “ Four years of Latin! Grade 12 Latin was being taught by the famous Fr St Clair Monaghan, affectionately known as ‘The Slink’. Classes took place in his office, which I saw far too much of as he was also Principal and the ultimate source of discipline in the school.” On fellow alumnus, Gary Doer ’66 “I was one of four non-Catholics in the entire school and most definitely at a loss as we headed for the Chapel where Mass would be served in Latin. A kid with a toothy grin advised me that he was an experienced On Fr Jake Driscoll, St Paul’s Director 1966–1972 “ The school was losing a very lucrative funding program and the move to Tuxedo had not been without some difficulties. The Booster Club, and then the Provincial Sweepstakes had culminated in a lottery. The first one in 1971, netting nearly $50,000 dollars for St Pauls … A miracle had happened back then. Some years later, it came to an end. ‘Jakie’ would just smile and suggest that all we needed was another ‘little miracle’. I doubt that anyone in public or private life could work a room like Fr Jake Driscoll.” On Fr Dave Creamer, St Paul’s Director 1982–1988 “ Fr Dave Creamer, as many of you know has the gift of gab, coupled with his high energy and continuous enthusiasm; he was able to oversee the creation of a miracle on Grosvenor Street for the Jesuits … The Monaghan wing was completed with a music room and the beginnings of a computer department … When I would challenge Father Creamer on the practical or pragmatic aspect of something, I immediately found the conversation drifting somewhere else and Dave concluding, that I had agreed with him all along.” On Fr Earl Smith, counselor for son Trevor ’91 “ November 10th, 1995, a horrific accident happened taking two recent St Paul’s graduates away from this world. I stood and watched, filled with anger and frustration, friends of our children, children of our friends. Trevor Acheson ’93 and Richard Cadieux ’95 were gone. Everywhere I looked, all I could see was grief and pain … Fr Smith once again emerged as a calming influence. His attention to the families and the community at large never varied. He was strong and compassionate, yet somehow he kept the focus on how lucky we were to have had our lives touched by these special young men.” 9 Tribute Dinner 2008 Ignatian Challenge Award Recipient Hubert T. Kleysen S t Paul’s High School is pleased to announce that Mr Hubert Kleysen, entrepreneur, philanthropist, dedicated family man and long time friend of St Paul’s, will be accepting the 2008 Ignatian Challenge Award at the 2008 Ignatian Challenge Award Tribute Dinner on Tuesday, November 4th, 2008. Although Mr Kleysen did not attend St Paul’s himself, both his sons, Tom ’76 and Rob ’88, attended and were involved in many school activities. Hubert was actively involved with St Paul’s as he chaired one of the major fundraising campaigns for the school, and believes in the philosophy of the school. The Paths of Discovery Campaign provided significant upgrades to the school’s science and computer labs and established the Father Holland SJ Learning Centre. In 1956, Hubert married Bernice Vanderstelt, and together they built their first home in St Vital. Later they moved to Ft Garry and still live in that vicinity today. Bernice and Hubert have three children–Brenda, Tom and Rob, and five wonderful grandchildren–Karl, Max, Alex, Shannon and Stephen. Family, community and friends have always been the root of Hubert and Bernice’s home, their business and daily life. They attend church regularly and support their Parish. Bernice was also an active volunteer at St Paul’s High School while their sons, Tom and Rob, attended. The Crusader Raffle The Crusader Raffle held this fall was a resounding fundraising success for St Paul’s, contributing $40,000 to support student extracurricular and co-curricular activities and making a significant contribution of $34,000 to launch the first Crusader Raffle Bursary for the students of the future. As you may be aware, an initial gift of $5,000 will name a bursary at St Paul’s, $120,000 will fully endow it at the present tuition level. This first Crusader Raffle is already well on its way to being a fully endowed bursary within the next one or two years. Another added benefit of the new raffle was the increase in student participation and ownership of their efforts and the raffle results. At $2 per ticket, students could have a reasonable expectation to sell tickets not only to family and friends, but with a little effort and courage, the chance to sell many more tickets to others. In the end, the students sold more than 45,000 tickets, with remaining ticket sales coming from the corporate support of Birchwood Automotive and Horizon Insurance and the raffle partner support of schools like Immaculate Heart of Mary. Hubert is truly honoured to be chosen by St Paul’s as the 18th Recipient of the Ignatian Challenge Award. Not seeking recognition of the things that he has done, Mr Kleysen hopes to recognize and create an awareness of the wonderful place that is the St Paul’s community. Mr Kleysen describes his life philosophy as striving to care for and nurture those who need help, and he feels that St Paul’s mirrors that philosophy with the type of community that it has developed.

They joined the President’s Club and were invited to dine and take in a Moose game with Fr Alan Fogarty SJ, President, in recognition of their generous effort. On average, the 2007 President’s Club Members sold 206 tickets each. Members (listed in order of ticket sales) were: Nicholas Deluca-Taronnno, Travis Braschuk, Justin Lopes, Ariel Leyson, Paul Kraemer, Samuel Guertin, Andrew Hannon, Matthew Borody, Chris Voth, Chistopher Paprocki, William Bazan, Matthew Meunier, Kurt Anos, Jon Stephansson, Tanner Twerdun, Stephen Spikula, Wajih Zeid. The Paths of Discovery Campaign (1991) is commemorated at the school in the form of an oak tree with individual donors on each acorn of the tree. 10 For this fall’s 2008 Crusader Raffle, we invite you and your place of business to be a point of sale for the raffle tickets.

Nick Laping ’61 Director Advancement & Alumni Relations 11 Crusader Sports Volleyball Crusaders-Buckeyes Meet Again Contributed by Daniel Rossi ’09 Daniel Rossi reports on the rematch of last year’s AAAA Provincial Final. Last year, it was the second rank Crusaders who managed a stunning upset against the high-powered Miles Mac Buckeyes. This year it was the Crusaders who were favoured to win. The first set was anything but pretty for the Crusaders. The Buckeyes who entered as the sixth seed, were able to jump out a big lead and took the first set 25–19. In the second set, the experience of the St Paul’s roster shone, as several returning players stepped up their game. Chris Voth ’08 displayed his talented arsenal of hits, many of which got the Crusader fans on their feet. After Miles Mac played more defensively towards Voth, Stefan Balko ’08 and Adam Riese ’08 raised their game again. The Crusaders won the set 25–20 to tie the match. The third set was the closest, with the Crusaders displaying their deep roster. Chris Komishon ’09 and Pawel Gacon ’09 also played very well for the ‘Cru’. Miles Mac had moments of success, but could not sustain that for the entire set, as the score was 25–22 in favour of St Paul’s. X-country XC: Quest for Banners Starts Early Each school year, the MHSAA Cross-Country Provincial Championships are among the first high school sports to declare champions and for the past six years that has meant a Provincial Championship for the JV Crusaders. The JV Crusaders were led by the running of Riley MacCharles ’11 who finished 4th overall in the Open Championship and 1st in the Team competition. Also scoring for the Crusaders in the team competition were Dallas McDougall ’10, Chris Schmidt ’11, Bryce Pfrimmer ’10, and Andrew Dick ’11 who scored 5th, 10th, 13th and 16th in the team competition which combined with MacCharles’ score, gave the team an overall score of 45 compared to the second place team score of 85! Riley Slater ’10, Cameron Krisko ’10, Daniel Popel ’11 and Daniel Kulas ’10 also ran very well for the Crusaders. The Varsity team, running against very strong competition, won Bronze medals for St Paul’s. Alex Pulak ’08 led the team with an 11th place finish in the team competition. Also scoring for the Crusaders were Travis Proskurniak ’08 (18th), Jim McDonald ’09 (25th), Jeff Slater ’08 (27th), and Chris Voth ’08 (32nd) for a team score of 113. Cam Norrie ’09 and Rob Krasny ’09 also ran well for the team. The ‘Cru’ continued their excellent play into the fourth set. With a multi-faceted attack, Miles Mac was unable to defend with success. Tom Elvers ’08, Noah Kosowski ’08, Derek Nieroda ’08 and Jeff Slater ’08 all played well. The Crusaders would win the set 25–20, and record a 3–1 win after a final Chris Voth smash. AAA Football After the last point, the Crusader fans raced onto the court to celebrate with the champions. The boisterous crowd filled up the Investors Group Athletic Centre with plenty of noise. Komishon and Balko were named All-Stars for the tournament, and Chris Voth took MVP honours. It was a great moment for the athletes, and they deserved every minute of the celebration. AAA Crusaders Raided on Final Drive The AAA Crusaders presented team awards at the December team banquet: The 2007 AAA season came to a close in semi-final action with a tough, hard-fought loss to the Oak Park Raiders. The game was a played at a high level as both teams were very familiar with one another seeing that this was their third meeting in the 2007 season. Fr C.J. Kelly SJ Players Award: David Anderson ’08 Cholakis Brothers Outstanding Down Lineman: Benjamin Downs ’08 Most Improved Player: Cameron Wilkie ’08 Eddie Cass Award: Antonio Paletta ’08 Fr Jobin SJ Crusader Spirit Award: Joel Erlendson ’08 and Matthew Ryz ’08 Rookie of the Year: Christian Hansen ’10 While the season did not end the way in which we would have preferred, there is much to be proud of. Not the least of which is an undefeated regular season for the third year in a row. Congratulations to all players and coaches for a truly outstanding effort in this the 76th anniversary of Crusader football. Special congratulations go out to some players for the individual honours they received from the league. League coaches selected Kevin Kwasny ’08 as the Elite Performance Center Defensive Player of the Year. League coaches also selected David Anderson ’08 as the Elite Performance Center Offensive Player of the Year. 12 Crusader Sports Wrestling Hockey Wrestling Champions Defending the Titles Congratulations to the Crusader Wrestling team as they won another Provincial Wrestling Championship. The victory was a team effort and the result of hard work by Coach Krawetz, the assistant coaches Matt Tripple, Dan Gange ’02 and Nathan Polakoff ’04, and all the athletes. Special thanks to Ms Kirkpatrick for her dedication and help with wrestling this year especially after a long volleyball season. With only 7 returning players there would be questions and uncertainty to go along with the added pressure that comes from being perceived as the team to beat. Still, the expectations of Crusader Hockey coaches and players were to realize a repeat of last year’s success. In the end, the Crusaders retained all of the banners and trophies won last year, ending the season with a 41–1 league, exhibition and playoff record. This year’s championship is especially well-deserved as the vast majority of the athletes were first time wrestlers, a testament to their efforts to overcome uncertainty and the coaches efforts to instruct and inspire the athletes through their own efforts (Coach Matt Tripple took Gold 84kg and Coach Dan Gange ’02 took Bronze 84kg in the Adult Competition). Wrestling moderator Alan Curruthers ’88 reported that Shaun Ewacha ’08 and Martyn Langstaff ’08 were each engaged in epic struggles that could have gone either way. Ultimately their veteran leadership of this young team carried the day and a 94 to 92 point team victory for the Crusaders over the second place Grant Park team. The City and Provincial Finals were both played against Oak Park. The Crusaders won the City title at the MTS Centre with a 3–0 victory and then the Provincial title in Dauphin with a commanding 13–0 victory against the same Raiders team. The Junior Varsity Team AA Football Junior Boys Results: Daniel Meyers Gold 42kg Robert Maclennan Gold 84kg David Dy Silver 54kg Steve Stone Bronze 50kg Michael Cowap Bronze 63kg Senior Boys Results: Travis Proskurniak Gold 54kg Derrick Kolly Gold 63kg Martyn Langstaff Gold 76kg Sean Ewacha Silver 76kg Warren Peabody Bronze 115kg One factor in the team’s success has been the ability to attract top players to high school hockey. Whether it is the pull toward wearing the P and representing St Paul’s or the more balanced family and study schedule, each year St Paul’s students are choosing to play Crusader hockey. The Crusaders top line of Derek Nieroda ’08, Pat Henderson ’08 and team captain Mackenzie Acheson ’08 dominated in the playoffs with Nieroda earning Provincial tournament MVP honours, while Jordan Davies ’08 led all Crusader point-getters in the City playoffs. AA Crusaders Score Big The AA Crusader Football Team defied all odds this season of Crusader Football and played to a 5–2 season record in the second division, the Kas Vidruk Division capturing third place in the standings in a week 7 victory versus Sturgeon Heights. The highlight of the game was Matthew Kulas’ game-winning 40 yard field goal through the wind, rain and cold to secure a heroic 3–2 win and third place. A championship game appearance for AA football was a real possibility. Unfortunately their efforts fell short in a close but heartbreaking game against the Kildonan East Kodiaks. Despite the fact that they did not make an appearance in the championship game, they showed that they were not only capable of playing at a higher level, but also competing and winning at a higher level. The AA Crusaders presented team awards at the December team banquet: Coaches Award: Matthew Kulas ’09 Rookie of the Year: Eric Fong ’11 Defensive MVP: Mark Papko ’09 Offensive MVP: Nicholas Cobb ’09 13 Homecoming 2007 All Class Reunion 2007 H undreds of Alumni from every generation gathered on Homecoming Weekend to celebrate the first annual All Class Reunion. It didn’t matter if you graduated in the 1940s or the 1980s, the buzz in Murray Hall grew louder and louder as old friends were reunited and alumni of different years came together to share stories of their shared experiences. Chef Alberto Costa of the Manitoba Club, along with his sous chef, served Malpeque Oysters through the evening and alumni helped themselves to a steady stream of ales and lagers supplied by Catfish Cream Ale and Ft Garry Brewing. Special thanks to Mike Dennehy ’86 of Independent Fish and Joseph Constant ’71 of Catfish Cream Ale for all their efforts in making the event a success. Members of the Class of 1987 made a special effort to attend in celebration of 20 years since their graduation and there were nearly as many alumni whose memories are of Ellice and Vaughan as of Grant and Shaftesbury. Larry Franz, Ernie Ostermann ’57, John Pundyk ’68, Fr Alan Fogarty SJ, Fr Con Mulvihill SJ, Fr Michel Boutillier SJ, and Nick Laping ’61 were among the many retired and current teachers on hand to reminisce and catch up the latest news and events. The first event was a great success. The 2nd Annual All Class Reunion will take place Saturday, September 27th, immediately following the second Crusader Football game, featuring the AAA Crusaders and a return Homecoming Day visit from the Churchill Bulldogs. Kick-off is at 3:00 pm and the All Class Reunions begins right after the final whistle. Alumni Basketball: Brar Boys Unstoppable W ith their repeat victory at the 2007 Alumni Basketball Tournament they have etched their name on the Bruce Russell ’77 Memorial Trophy for the fourth time in the eleven years the trophy has been contested. Challengers have come and gone, new challengers have emerged from the ranks of recent graduates, but none have been able to stop them the last two years. This past year’s Alumni Basketball Tournament again saw 75–80 players competing. In a new twist, the tournament was held on the Friday and Saturday of Homecoming Weekend. The tournament’s final game came to a close just as the AAA Crusaders were kicking off to the Churchill Bulldogs. The twinning of these events was very well received and will be repeated again at Homecoming 2008. The players enjoyed the larger atmosphere and opportunity to see teachers and fellow alumni. The player’s families and friends, who come out each year to watch them play in another alumni tournament, were excited to be a part of a much larger event complete with bouncing apparatus and children’s play areas. Stay connected to the St Paul’s Online Community for registration information for the 12th Annual Alumni Basketball Tournament in September. 14 Homecoming 2007 H 2007 ore than 2,000 students, parents, alumni and friends gathered to celebrate Home-coming 2007 and watch our Crusader Football teams take on old rivals the Kelvin Clippers and Churchill Bulldogs. The southerly winds were strong and the temperatures continued to climb all afternoon, settling in at an atypical, end-ofSeptember 27 degrees. Alumni and their families filled the children’s play areas and the sideline stands, while alumni and friends managed a steady flow of traffic in the beer garden, the concessions and Crusader Shoppe areas. M In the day’s first game, the 2–1 AA Crusaders took on the 3–0 Kelvin Clippers. The Crusaders could not stop the Clipper running game and the Clippers managed a 31–14 victory on their way to a 6–1 season and eventual Winnipeg Free Press Bowl Vidruk Division Championship. The day’s second game was billed as a possible preview of the Potter Division ANAVETS Bowl final game, with the defending champion AAA Crusaders facing a young, up-and-coming Bulldogs squad. On this day, both teams would look to establish the run and secure positive field position, but it was the Crusaders who carried the momentum of the previous weeks’ hard fought victory at Sisler with another all-round effort. Offence, defence and special teams all contributed to a 31–2 victory, helping the Crusaders move to 4 wins and 0 losses. 2007). Kick-off on Connolly Field is at 1:00 pm. Last year, in the final week of the regular season, the Crusaders and Huskies played an important game for the final standings. The Crusaders managed to win and secure 3rd place in the standings after a heroic 3–2 win with a 40 yard field goal in the rain and wind by Matt Kulas, sealing the win with 19.7 seconds remaining. The Crusaders had trailed 2–0 for much on the game. As for the final game match-up preview theory, well it didn’t quite work out that way for either team this season, but stay tuned for Homecoming 2008 when the Bulldogs will return to face the Crusaders again. Game time on Saturday, September 27th is 3:00 pm. It is the field that Fr. Connolly seeded, fertilized, watered, cut and nurtured for almost 15 years. The alumni, parents and friends in the photograph below were among a group of people who contributed financially to the extensive field renovations and the newly installed lighting and ground sprinkler systems. Fr. Connolly would surely have been proud of their efforts. In 2006, the field was rededicated in his name and this fall a new field sign was installed to honour Fr. Connolly and all those who contributed to the renovation project. Homecoming 2008 on Saturday, September 27th will also feature the AA Crusaders (5–2 in 2007) against the Sturgeon Heights Huskies (also 5–2 in Drama The Carnival has arrived! Carey Buss, impresario, and his troupe. Curse of the B-Horror Movie Contributed by Peyton Veitch ’11 T he Werewolf ’s Curse is the comedic tale of the misadventures of Harry Pate (Alexander Pulak ’08), an American student at the University of Lipsync, in Romania. While on a field tip, Pate is bitten by a werewolf cub which transforms him into a semi-werewolf with an incessant craving for roast beef. Pate, along with his fiancé Etna (Andie Jackson SMA ’09), head off to visit the reclusive Dr Frank Einstein (Stephen Shannon ’08) who they believe can cure him of his unnatural tendencies. During his stay in the home of Dr Einstein, Pate and Etna are visited by a hilarious carnival troupe lead by Professor Wonder (Carey Buss ’09). The troupe includes a diminutive strongman (Gabriel Thiessen ’10), a geek (Paul McCulloch ’10), a Gypsy fortune teller whose abilities are questionable (Alex Pawlowsky ’10), a juicedrinking vampire (Kurtis Hodge ’09), a mummy (Petey Nawrocki ’11) and a belly dancer (Emily Ashley SMA ’09). Along with the antics of the carnival troupe, Pate and Etna also become embroiled in a sinister plot that is perpetrated by the secretly evil Dr Einstein. Pate and Etna along with their newfound friends, must work together in order to foil it scientist. Dr Einstein’s butler Frederick Doppelganger was played to great effect by Jake Simoens ’10; with his zombie-like movement and signature drawl, “Yes, Doctor Einsteiiiin,” Simoens never failed to grab the attention of the audience and throw them into hysterics. The band played uniformly well throughout the play, capturing the mood and kept the audience interested during the scene changes. The set was nothing short of spectacular. The Stage Crew was directed by Mr Kolton and led by the efforts of Robert Schmidt ’09 who spent over 100 hours on the set. The interior of Dr Einstein’s castle was an especially ambitious work, including a staircase and multiple exits which added a level of depth and substance. The audience was unflagging in their attentiveness and appreciation for all facets of the play. The actors, set, lighting and the band all delivered in giving the audience a spectacle suitable for a wide range of tastes and ages. Directors Ms Lussier and Mr Comeault should certainly receive a sizeable amount of credit for their creative decisions which made the play such a success.

Alumni Overseas Into Africa Sierra Leone W hile working as a representative for an international humanitarian organization in Koidu, Sierra Leone, Jason Dudek ’99 was struck by the urgent need to care for large numbers of children left to fend for themselves on the harsh streets of Koidu. Large photo above: Beninese boys. Above: Jason Dudek ’99, with children at SOS Canada House. Below: Beninese children Together with Richard Damianopoulos, and Fr Fred Olds of St Bernadette Parish in Winnipeg, Jason founded the Braveheart Youth Foundation in 2005. Money was raised to construct a large center to be used as a drop-in for street youths in Koidu. S.O.S. Canada House was completed in April 2007. This home provides shelter, food, education and beds to roughly 30 needy children left homeless in the chaotic wake of the recent civil war. The house also serves as a drop in centre for nearly 100 kids, providing food, games, counseling, and medical care to those who would normally go without. For the last two years, the Maroon and White Society and Moderator Mr David Chaze have facilitated Mission Week drives in support of the Foundation. This fall, St Paul’s students raised $2,160. Jason is currently working toward a Masters’ Degree in Development Management at the London School of Economics. On reflection, he attributes the success of the project to the focus on supporting, listening to and working with the local community. This bottom-up approach and its success has led the Foundation to expand its mandate to be able to support further organizations and initiatives in the future. St Paul’s alumni Jason Dudek ’99 and Jonathan Ventura ’07 have each made conscious decisions in their lives to dedicate themselves to the service of those in need. They are at different stages of their own personal journeys, but their drive to serve those most in need establishes them both as exemplary role models as Men for Others. On the sign outside S.O.S.

The work I did varied, from planting palm trees with my bare hands on a farm, to working with mentally and physically challenged children. All these experiences helped me understand a very different culture, and a country struggling to develop many of the things that we take for granted. In the Beninese culture showing emotion is rare; you are not allowed to show affection or cry when anyone is around. The culture is largely based on a structure of smaller communities, in some ways internally self-sufficient communities. For these communities, solidarity and showing no weakness is necessary. For more information and to contribute to its ongoing success, please visit the Foundation website at www.braveheartyouth.ca. Benin —by Jonathan Ventura ’07 P eople often say it’s a small world. While this may be true, we often never really understand the differences between us. Often times we are stuck in our own small world and unable to experience other people’s view of this world, and how they live, feel and deal with situations. I recently experienced 5 months of living like a Beninese, African; I was even given a new name, Codjo. I ate boiled and hardened corn flour every night, which tastes as it sounds, lived with Jonathan Ventura ’07 with his Beninese host family Yet, within these communities is a unique level of generosity. When giving a gift it is customary to give a personal item of significant value. This is done regardless of whether the recipient will like the item itself. It is not what you give, but what you give up. Coming back to Canada, I sincerely appreciate what I have; we are indeed very fortunate. I also am able to recognize the individualistic nature of our society. We have experienced stability and growth as a result, but at times we are stuck in our own world. For future development, we must achieve a balance between the individualist and communal aspect of ourselves and society, both locally and globally. I would recommend the Canada World Youth program to those looking for a challenging and rewarding experience.

I’d like to stay in Jesuit education, in any case.” What sort of impact do you think you have had? “I don’t know if I’m really the best person to judge that. It’s sort of like parenting. You don’t know until 20, 25 years later if you were a decent parent or not. This job, in some ways, is very much like that.” Editor’s Note: Alan will be staying on as a teacher at St Paul’s this fall, continuing a tradition of St Paul’s administrators returning to the classrooms of St Paul’s. Do you miss the classroom? “Very much so. What I really like is the classroom and I love my CLC’s. CLC for me has been a very good way of connecting very positively with small groups of students.” At the centre of the St Paul’s are the Jesuits and Ignatian values. How much of a role has that played in your life? I’ve heard you challenge the boys to be ‘gentlemen of courage’ quite often. What does that mean to you? “I think that we challenge the guys to be men for others, but I think that’s a goal. What I do, I think, is to try and cover the process. In order to be a man for others, you have to be gentlemanly, which means you have manners, you are considerate of other people … So that’s the gentleman side. I think the other thing is courageousness. There is the need to reflect internally to reflect on what is right and what is wrong in your heart, and be courageous enough to do that.” PhD in Irish history at Carnegie Mellon University and is happily married to an American gal named Deirdre.
