It is with great sadness we must inform our Alumni of the passing of Father Rick Curry SJ. Father Rick was a very close friend of Father Jack Alexander's and has always been a great supporter of the Prep and it's legacy. Father Rick died on Saturday at St Josephs' in Philadelphia surrounded by his family. A viewing will be held at Holy Trinity Church in Washington DC on Saturday, January 2nd from 9 - 10:15 AM to be followed by a funeral Mass officiated by long time friend Father Ken Boller SJ, President of St Peter's Prep, at 10:30 AM.

Father Curry was the Founder of The National Theatre Workshop of the Handicapped, in NYC and in 2013 created a school for disabled veterans in conjunction with Georgetown University in Washington DC called Dog Tag Bakery. Father Curry dedicated his life to helping the disabled by empowering them with the skills and confidence to become active members of their families and communities. He impacted the lives of thousands of disabled people around the globe.  

We honored Father Curry as our 1998 Honorary Alumnus of the Year.  


Earlier in the year the BPAA Board of Directors named Pope Francis an Honorary Alumnus of Brooklyn Prep.  A letter and award were mailed to the Vatican.
