Visit From American High School.


On Thursday October 20th, Glenstal received a visit from Mr. Nate Stein and a group of his students from St. John Vianney High School in St. Louis, Missouri. The visit had been arranged by our Headmaster, Fr. William Fennelly, at Mr. Stein’s request in order to offer the touring group an opportunity to experience the daily life of our school. The previous day, they managed to catch the SCT’s City Cup fixture against St. Munchin’s in Corbally.

The group arrived at approximately 09:00 and were treated to a tour of the grounds and Icon chapel by Abbot Christopher. Both the students and Mr. Stein then got a chance to sit in on some classes here and enjoy lunch with staff and students. A few gifts where exchanged bearing each schools crest and a quick rugby session was fitted in before the group departed again to continue their journey around Ireland.
