Greetings Parents, Students, Faculty & Staff,

On behalf of the Salesian Spectator, I would like to introduce the October Issue. I couldn’t be more proud of the effort our writers put into ensuring this issue is a success. This issue entails 28 articles from the likes of Ethan Castro ‘24, Aaron Jiang ‘23, Marcus Brown ‘22, Colin McGee‘22, Timothy Nguyen ‘23, among others. These features include world news updates, technology reflections, latest film suggestions, sports highlights, amongst other topics. In a very special way this issue highlights the recaps of the following special events that have taken place in our community: Fr. Jim: A Salesian President, Intriguing Revelations: Black Hole, and November Athletic Newsletter.   

This issue contains the Salesian Spectator’s first cover article of the school year. With the new school year also arrives a new president, as Father James Heuser is welcomed into New Rochelle’s Salesian family. The article contains an interview, conducted and written by Ethan Castro ‘24. Within this interview, we are granted an insight into Fr. Jim’s inspirations and the love he holds for the Salesian community. Fr. Jim sets an example for us all through his presence.

The Spectator thanks the Salesian Community, our Faculty, Staff, and students who have contributed effortlessly towards the last several issues of the newspaper. Our goal as the Spectator is to ensure that our Salesian Community has the means and access to use their voices. Our prayers are with our Salesian Families at home and abroad, and we continue to keep those affected in our hearts. I hope you enjoy this issue put together by the men of the Salesian Spectator. 

Warm Regards, 

Armando Gimenez
