Georgetown Preparatory School held a small, socially distant groundbreaking ceremony to kick off the Campus Center, Residence Hall, and New Athletic Facilities project on December 20.
Rev. James R. Van Dyke, S.J., Georgetown Prep's President, offered Mass in the Chapel of Lourdes for invited guests. After Mass, the group walked over the future site of the Campus Center, Residence Hall, and New Athletic Facilities. The construction of the building will begin later this month.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, Fr. Van Dyke welcomed the honored guests and added, "I'm grateful to the many of our benefactors who worked hard to make the Campus Center, Residence Hall, and New Athletic Facilities project possible. In particular, I would like to thank, again, our anonymous donor who began this project for us. And, also, I would like to thank the Bidwill family who will allow us to bring it to completion with their endowment of the stadium."
Fr. Van Dyke then blessed the field site and the site of the new building.
