The Hudson Winter Walk


The upper form of Gregory the Great Academy traveled to Hudson New York this past weekend for the town’s annual “Winter Walk” festival. Each year the town shuts down the main street in town and the business stay open. Street vendors and performers come from far and near to celebrate the holiday season. For our part, the students performed several juggling shows while singing Christmas Carols and folk music on the street for passersby. Children from one to ninety-two expressed their joy at seeing the boys perform their juggling tricks and acrobatics. Many of the spectators joined in the singing even though it was a very chilly night.

Catholic Exchange Podcast, editor Michael J. Lichens sits down with Sean Fitzpatrick who, in addition to his great articles on CE, is also the Headmaster of Gregory the Great Academy in Scranton, PA. We discuss what teen boys can accomplish when freed from technology and how activities like juggling and rugby help to form the whole person in a liberal arts education grounded in the faith. In all, Sean shows us how education is a grand adventure of the soul.

New York City Trip – December 2015

Gregory the Great Academy traveled to New York City on Wednesday, December 16, for a day of culture and merriment throughout the City.  The day began with a visit to the USS Intrepid museum, where the boys were able to tour the famous aircraft carrier.   At the same site, the boys experienced what it would be like to live on a submarine as they went below deck on the USS Growler, a Cold War era submarine docked at the same site.   From there the boys walked to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center to carol and juggle for those visiting New York City this Christmas season.   The evening ended with a performance at the Metropolitan Opera of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, which everyone enjoyed very much.
