Greetings during this holy season of Lent. I write to inform you in my capacity as the Chairman of the Board of Governors for Saint Viator High School and Provincial for the Clerics of St. Viator. My friend and the President of the School, Rev. Daniel Lydon, C.S.V., requested that he be allowed to begin his retirement early and leave before the end of the academic year. After due consideration, the Board of Governors granted his request. Fr. Lydon will continue his priestly ministry and enjoy some well-deserved rest at the Viatorian's house in Bourbonnais, Illinois, before taking his sabbatical. All of us are deeply grateful to Fr. Lydon for his three years of dedicated work on behalf of the families, students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Saint Viator High School.
Saint Viator hockey plays in the first round of the state playoffs on Saturday, as part of the Amateur Hockey Association Illinois State Championship series. The No. 6 seeded Lions will take on the No. 28 seed, St. Rita High School, at 5:20 p.m. at the Mount Prospect Ice Arena.
Located in Arlington Heights, IL, Saint Viator High School is a private, co-ed, Catholic school for grades 9-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
