One of the wonderful aspects I am learning about Cathedral is their support of CHS alums - our relationship with Cathedral may have only started when we walked through the door on the first day of school, but it certainly doesn't end when we walk out the door at graduation.  The recent presentation by Peter Marshall '00, Steve Keaveny '00, Winchell Delano '03 and Matt Harren '06 is proof of this continued support and relationship!  Peter, Steve, Winchell and Matt completed a 130 day expedition across Canada's vast northern territories this past summer.  On January 3rd they were welcomed back at Cathedral by nearly 350 guests and their Cathedral family for the presentation of their incredible journey.  "Trans-Territorial Canoe Expedition" included photos, stories, video clips and maps documenting the 4 1/2 months they spent trekking the 2,600 miles from the Pacific Ocean to the Hudson Bay.  The audience was entranced with the determination of the four men - all of whom participated in the Les Voyageurs program while at Cathedral.  Peter is now working on a book and a documentary about their historical accomplishment.  To learn more, visit

Book Clubs

I also recently learned about the book clubs at Cathedral - students were invited to be part of a book club this past summer with the second session beginning in January.  There is a boys club and a girls club with reading material designed to meet the 5th - 7th grade reading level.  However, anyone is welcome and it is never too late to join the clubs!  The schedule is as follows:
