The 171 graduating seniors from Red Bank Catholic High School were given some food for thought as they prepare for the next chapter in their lives. “Be a person of prayer,” urged Msgr. Joseph N. Rosie, pastor of St. James Parish, Red Bank, and director of RBC. “Take time to reflect on God’s presence, Jesus’ presence and the movement of the Spirit in your life’s journey.

“Remember Jesus’ words, ‘I am with you, always’ and ‘Once a Casey, always a Casey,’” Msgr. Rosie said, referencing RBC’s mascot.

Graduation began with a May 30 Baccalaureate Mass in St. Mary Church, Middletown. The commencement was May 31 on the campus of Monmouth University, West Long Branch, where Principal Karen Falco noted the class’ achievements. Collectively, the total value of college scholarships awarded to the Class of 2024 was more than $31 million.

Members of the Class of 2024 “have dedicated their time to supporting their classmates and the community,” Falco said. She offered examples, such as the school teams and cheerleaders working with the Challenger League, providing safe environments for individuals with special needs and giving everyone the chance to participate in athletics and fun. She also said that many groups support children in hospitals and seniors in care facilities.

“As you prepare to embark on the next chapter, carry forward the values instilled in you by your family, let perseverance guide you through challenges, let curiosity fuel your thirst for knowledge and let compassion be the compass that guides youractions,” Falco said. “Remember the world is full of possibilities,” Falco continued. “Use your education, talents and your passion to make a difference in the world.”

Nicole Piroso, who was a faculty member at the school before having children, said she always knew her children would be RBC students.

“RBC is a school of tradition, pride and spiritual growth,” she said. “Students can value the education [they receive] to develop them academically, spiritually and socially.

“I believe attending a Catholic school builds the whole person rooted with faith-based ideals, and this is what sets it apart from other secondary educational experiences.”

Piroso’s daughter and RBC graduate, Ava, reflected on her Catholic education experience at RBC saying, “It has helped me grow more in my faith and [into] the person I am today.”
