Best Catholic School Marching Unit

St. Camillus School was named the First Place Catholic School marching unit in the Queens County Saint Patrick's Day Parade held in Rockaway on Saturday, March 7.

More than 100 students, faculty, and family marched behind the St. Camillus School banner waving flags, passing out candy, and throwing green and gold beads to the crowds along the route.

The large marching contingent is a testament to the strength of St. Camillus School and the enthusiastic school spirit of its students and faculty. Marchers enjoyed a postparade reception in the St. Camillus School auditorium complete with hot dogs, soda bread, deserts, and Irish music.

Sister Agnes White CSJ, Principal of St. Camillus School, and Reverend Richard Ahlemeyer, Pastor of St. Camillus - St. Virgilius Parish, were thrilled with the turnout for the Parade.

"We had a great time marching. The weather was terrific and the students really enjoyed themselves," said Sr. Agnes. "Everyone did us proud. I couldn't be happier with the way they represented the School, and the trophy is the icing on the cake," added Fr. Richard.

Designed as an intimate neighborhood Catholic school, St. Camillus School has been serving the education needs of the Rockaway Peninsula and Broad Channel for more than 50 years.
