Lasallians from St. Raymond Parish joined Christian Brothers to Give Thanks and Celebrate

Riverdale, NY – In the Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers, on the Manhattan College campus, more than 125 members of the St. Raymond Parish, past and present, along with Christian Brothers who had served at St. Raymond High School for Boys celebrated the Lasallian mission that had been present in Parkchester for more than 150 years. Thanks to Monsignor Thomas Derivan for presiding over the Mass, and for John Knapp, local parish Pastor and 1978 St. Raymond graduate for joining him!  A very special thanks to St. Raymond graduates, families, and the many Lasallians who joined us on a wonderful day to celebrate and remember!
