The Servite High School Class of 2022 continues the recent tradition of being remarkable for their perseverance and resilience through the COVID pandemic. The Class of 2020 was unique in that they did not finish their senior year on campus. The Class of 2021 battled through the pandemic and a senior year of remote and hybrid learning to finish together on campus for their final quarter at Servite. The Class of 2022 will be defined by their success in completing a monumental task as the leaders on campus - bringing the brotherhood back!

The Class of 2022 became the keepers of Servite tradition and guardians of the Servite brotherhood as our community emerged from the pandemic and returned to a more normal student experience from Day 1 of the 2021-2022 academic year. They embraced this challenge as their opportunity to breathe life into the fight song - I am the Friar and I love the fight! Bringing normalcy back to Servite became their fight and they thrived as a class in all arenas - academically, athletically, socially, and spiritually. They were not discouraged by the continued requirement of wearing masks indoors and they celebrated the return of one lunch period without social distancing in the quad, bringing tremendous energy and enthusiasm to this beloved time on campus every day at noon.

The Asylum was once again packed and raucous on Friday nights supporting their brothers on the football field. After a COVID-induced hibernation of over a year, the Senior Asylum leaders quickly restored the chaos and fraternity to the best student section in Orange County. The Priory Leadership Council led by the Senior Generals reimagined Priory Period with a focus on fun in the homerooms and Senior Assistant Priors guided canoe races in the aquatics center, a basketball tournament in the gym, and flag football on Courage Field. The Campus Ministry team and senior leaders in the Principles of Discipleship Class sold out four Kairos retreats with dozens of seniors making the most of the opportunity to encounter Christ in the mountains of Wrightwood. And of course, the Class of 2022 received acceptances into top colleges, universities, and military academies across the United States.

What could have been a graduating class defined by disappointment, struggles, and loss has become a band of brothers defined by unity, hope, and love. The Class of 2022 never lost faith in Servite or themselves.

Thanks to their discipline, dedication, desire, and determination there is no breach in the traditions of fraternity, service, and devotion to Mary at Servite. Thanks to their creativity and passion, the Servite brotherhood is stronger than ever. Thanks to their courage and commitment, Servite remains Servite - and that is a true legacy!
