Rummel dinner offers food for thought

To inform members of the Archbishop Rummel High School family about the five “Core Principles” of a Lasallian education, the school’s two Christian Brothers on campus hosted a cross-section of the school’s faculty, parents and alumni, plus representatives from the three other Lasallian schools in the area for a first ever “Five Core” Dinner.

Organized by Brother Gale Condit, FSC, school president, the evening’s meal treated more than 50 guests to personal reflections by faculty members on the five Lasallian core principles, each represented by a different course.

These principles, celebrated by the Christian Brothers at Archbishop Rummel and schools around the world, were connected to the following courses:

Course One, Faith in the Presence of God, charbroiled oysters;

Course Two, Inclusive Community, gumbo;

Course Three, Concern for the Poor, spinach risotto;

Course Four, Quality Education, barbecue shrimp and ribs;

Course Five, Respect for all Persons, bread pudding.

The meal was supplied by Tommy Cvitanovich, 1977 Archbishop Rummel alumnus and owner of two local Drago’s Restaurants. Cvitanovich was assisted by the school’s student ambassadors, who served each of the five courses.

“We shared not only good food for the body, but also great food for the soul,” Archbishop Rummel religion teacher Anna Lee said.
