Overview

In April 2009 alumni and friends of Catholic High School for Boys will gather to toast and roast a favorite of the school’s legendary faculty, Michael Moran, the author of Proudly We Speak Your Name. Only a stoic could complete a reading without a teary-eyed moment or two and many belly laughs. Faculty idiosyncrasies are recalled in this memoir, as are student antics. If it can happen within the walls of an all-boys high school, the author has probably seen it in his forty-one years of teaching. And he has probably reported on it in this book, which was written during his first year of “retirement.” While the spirit is often light, Moran’s book ends with a stirring tribute to the man who, though departed, still epitomizes the spirit of the place, the man whose name is now given to the school’s street, Father George Tribou. Readers will leave Moran’s account glad for the experience of following in his (remembered) footsteps.
