Brother Martin Family Comes Together for Cor Jesu Hall Dedication and Plus 50 Mass

Cor Jesu Hall Dedication and Plus 50 Mass

Cor Jesu Alumni joined in the Dedication of Cor Jesu Hall at Brother Martin High School this past Saturday. Fr. Dennis Hayes ’78 presided over the blessing, Frank Jobert ’69 CJ addressed the crowd and thanked the donors, the support staff, and the Brother Martin High School administration.  Frank chaired the committee that raised more than $100,000 toward the naming of Cor Jesu Hall.  Alumni and guests toured the classrooms in the original building.  Plaques hang outside of each classroom recognizing the Cor Jesu graduation class for which each classroom is dedicated.  

The St. Aloysius and Cor Jesu Alumni then celebrated their Plus 50 Reunion Mass in the Branton Chapel. Fr. Dennis Hayes ’78 celebrated Mass.  Kevin Caparotta ’88 and members of the Brother Martin Chorus and the Alumni Chorus provided the music, and Brother Martin Student Ambassadors, under the direction of Campus Minister Mark Bordelon, assisted with the event.

After Mass, Advancement and Alumni Director Kenny Spellman ’84 announced classes celebrating reunion years and welcomed the newest members, the Cor Jesu and St. Aloysius classes of 1969 and the Brother Martin Class of 1970.  Richard Cullen ’69 CJ from Poplarville, MS, was recognized as the alumnus traveling the farthest to attend the event, and Leon Perret, St. Aloysius Class of 1940, celebrating his 80th reunion, was recognized as the alumnus from the earliest class.  Lastly, Brother Bernie Couvillion, S.C. and Brother Paul Montero, S.C. shared inspirational words with these men “who have been a blessing to the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and the young men who carry on the Charism of Fr. Coindre and the Tradition of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and their Lay Partners in Mission.”

Special guests included Greg Rando ’77, President of Brother Martin High School, and Justin Fleetwood, our Director of Strategic Planning for Advancement, and 2021 Alumnus of the Year Larry Gibbs ’65 CJ and his wife Marian
