A Message From The Princzpal To All Brothers' Boys, It gives me a great deal of satisfaction and pride to announce to you that we are commemorating fifty years of Christian Brothers' service in New Iberia. Without a shadow of a doubt, we can say that the Christian Brothers have greatly enjoyed their stay in New Iberia. And from the wonderful response of the people, we feel that the community has appreciated the work of the Brothers. Many of the Brothers who worked so hard here have gone on to their reward. Many are still working in various parts of the Lord's Vineyard. It can be said that all the Brothers who worked here have truly loved it and are anxious to return. We invite you to join with us to commemorate our Fiftieth Anni- versary, and we ask you to remember all your fine teachers in your prayers as you can be sure you are remembered in their prayers. We wish for you God's choicest blessings. Yours in Christ, QW ZZZW Brother Denis Charbonnet Principal X

Henshaw, purchased by Monsignor Langlois in 1913, served as the first school house and later as the Brothers' residence before it was finally removed from the lot a few years ago. The Beginning . During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Catholic education for New Iberia boys was a definite problem. Numerous attempts to relieve the situation failed, and the matter was finally put into the hands of the Carmelite Nuns of Mount Carmel Academy, founded in 1870 for girls. But by 1903, it became evident that the nuns could no longer handle the education of the boys even after the addition of new facilities. Monsignor I. M. Langlois, the industrious pastor of St. Peter's Parish of New Iberia. then arrived on the scene. In 1913, he purchased the mansion of C. C. l-Ienshaw for 320, 000 to be used as a school building. Now, his only obstacle was to provide a faculty for his school. If there ever was an occurrence to prove the old saying, "Every cloud has a silver lining, " it was the outbreak of the religious persecution in Mexico around this time. Many priests and religious were forced to flee into the United States. A Baton Rouge pastor who knew of Monsignor Lang1ois's problem convinced five Christian Brothers from Mexico, who were passing through that city on their way north, to go to New Iber- ia. After seeing Monsignor Langlois, the Brothers de- cided to stay and teach at the school. On September 9, 1918, St. Peter's College opened with a student body of 106 and a faculty of five. The five were principal Brother A. Arsenius, Brothers A. Xavier Qdeceasedj, Anselm fpresently at Catholic Highp, Amable Marie fLouisj. and Gustavus fdeceasedj. These men, together with Monsignor Langlois made Catholic education for boys an astounding success in New Iberia despite the misfortunes of those who had tried before. A new addition was constructed to keep up with the amazing rate of expansion and was dedicated by Bishop I. B. Ieanmard of Lafayette on May 15, 1919. St. Peter's produced its first graduating class in 1922 After many years of expansion and improvement, in 1957 St. Peter's moved to its present facilities locat- ed on Admiral Doyle and DeLaSalle Drives. Since the school was no longer in St. Peter's parish, the name was changed to Catholic High School. This commemorative supplement to the 1968 Panther will try to awaken some fond memories of the past years of St. Peter's-Catholic High by presenting a collection of pictures from those memorable days gone by. 7
