Bishop of Santa Rosa Diocese The Diocese ot Santa Rosa--its clergy, religiou have this community serving the people of Napa Scenes ofthe Solemn Blessing and Dedication of Justin 8: Siena High Schools, April, I967 Education has always been a paramount value in living and creative cultures. A technical society such as ours must make particularly heavy de- mands upon its school systems, both public and private. Its survival and progress are directly de- pendent upon the cultivation of our nation's talent. Education is also a perpetually evolving process. The task of bettering and improving American edu- cation will ever be a challenge and obligation to each generation. It is currently, we are told, under- going a series of profound transformations. The first revolution has been quantitative-an un- matched effort to extend schooling to all Americans. The second phase, a revolution which has hardly begun, focuses on educational quality, and has as its goal the continuing improvement of instruction in our schools. Excellence in education has always been a hall- mark of the Brothers of the Christian Schools who have a most distinguished history in nearly every quarter of the world. ln the midst of uncertain and questioning times, the recent DECLARATION of their Thirty-Ninth Chapter H9677 emphatically re- stated the central position of the educational apostolate in their mission. "From the beginning," it proclaimed, "the brothers devoted themselves to the Christian education oi youth in various ways, but the school has always been the principal work of their apostolate, the one in which the greatest number have been involved." It is with a great comfort that we see the un- reserved confidence and pride of this community in their history and future. There is no confusion regarding the goals, values, and priorities of this body of dedicated and professional churchmen. Today, their schools will not be suppressed or abandoned: rather the brothers have declared, they will be renewed. Today the brothers' Institute is unmistakably "committed to make its contribu- tion to the rebirth of the Christian school, to help creat such a school capable of preparing men for the twenty-first century." s and laity-is genuinely honored and grateful to County. At the end of its second year, Iustin High School, carrying on the cherished traditions of its namesake, in Northern California, has already exhibited great promise of developing into the type ot institution designed for the exciting century ahead. May we extend our cornmenclation to all who have shared in the success of Iustin High School. May we take this happy occasion to congratulate the staff and faculty, the parents and the student. Faithfully yours in Christ, 'l'LEO T. MAHER Bishop of Santa Rosa tit l FW fl

BROTHER JAMES BEDE VAN DUREN, F.S.C. Principal Dedication . In dedicating the first Iustin High yearbook, it is not by mere convention that We choose to honor our principal, Brother Bede. For Brother Bede represents to us what is good and human and real about the Christian Brothers. As founding principal in a new administrative venture, he has directed the organization and academic life of Justin High with dynamic leadership. Above this, though, he has gained our respect and admiration because of his concern for each student. This concern has not swayed his firm convictions, but guided them. Each of us has come to realize that this is a real man worthy of imitation. With all sincerity and gratitude, the students of Justin High dedicate this first Brave to you, Brother Bede.

BROTHER T. JEROME Provincial FATHER JAMES GAFFEY Superintendent of Schools BROTHER BERTRAM COLEMAN, F.S.C. Supervisor of Christian Brothers' Schools Ninety-nine years ago the Christian Brothers arrived in the Archdiocese of San Francisco to assume the direction of Saint Mary's College on Mission Road which had been opened by the Most Reverend loseph Sadoc Alemany five years earlier and staffed by the diocesan clergy. This first contingent of eight Christian Brothers was led by an indomitable spirit, Brother lustin McMahon, after whom this school is named. lt seems completely fitting that this school, the first Catholic secondary school for boys in Napa County, be named in honor of the first Provincial of the Christian Brothers in California-Brother Iustin. His name is perpetuated in San Francisco by lustin Drive, at Saint Mary's College by Iustin Hall, and now in the city of Napa by Iustin High School. The Christian Brothers today rejoice that this great teacher and outstanding champion of the Catholic school system in the United States is commemorated by this new secondary school. The name Iustin may not have a familiar ring in the Napa valley but the Christian Brothers are no strangers in these surroundings. Since 1932, when the training school for Christian Brothers was established at Mont La Salle, the Brothers have been in- terested in the area and for a number of years have anticipated the establishment of a Catholic high school for boys. The Catholic people of Napa were also desirous of securing a high school for their children. Through the combined effort of the Christian Brothers, His Excellency, Leo T. Maher, first bishop of the Santa Rosa diocese, and the people of the community these hopes have been realized with the construction of Iustin High. WEST, F.S.C. We are grateful to all those who participated with His Excellency and the Christian Brothers in establishing Iustin High School. We wish to thank also the students of Iustin High, their parents, and the friends of the school who have so wholeheartedly supported the efforts of our operation under difficult circumstances. Our gratitude ex- tends particularly to the faculty whose untiring efforts and enthusiasm augur well for this new establishment. ln closing, we ask the good Lord to continue to bless the work of Cath- olic secondary education begun so auspiciously in Napa County. Cordially yours in Christ, BROTHER T. IEROME WEST, F.S.C. Provincial
