Latest Savio High School Holds “Great Savio Reunion”

By Fr. Mike Mendl

An estimated 450 former students and faculty of St. Dominic Savio HS and Savio Prep in East Boston, Massachusetts, showed up for the Great Savio Reunion on Saturday night, March 10.

The SDBs operated Dom Savio from 1958 to 1993. A group of alumni set up Savio Prep a couple of years later and ran it until 2007.

There were even a few alumni of Don Bosco Trade School, which preceded Dom Savio at the site (1946-1955) before relocating to downtown Boston.

The reunion, held at what is now the Salesian Boys & Girls Club of East Boston, was planned by alumni Steve Fielding and Fr. John Nazzaro, SDB, both of the Class of 1972.

Steve is now the program director of the Boys & Girls Club, and Fr. John is executive director as well as director of the local community of four SDBs who serve at the Club.

The alumni and staff spent most of the four hours of the evening sharing news of families and careers, reminiscing about school days, and asking about some of the Salesians they’d known. Many of them voiced their deep appreciation for what the Salesians and other faculty had taught them, and not only in an academic sense.

If there had been a prize for the participant who traveled the farthest to get to the Great Reunion, the winner, hands down, would have been former SDB cleric Pat Whalen, who came all the way from Brisbane, Australia, to meet some of his former students and other friends.
