Kelly Spending a day in court, Mike, John, Mrs. Kelly, Judge Kelly, and Pat Kelly gain a better understanding of the challenges, responsibilities, and trials which comprise a judge ' s day. Dedication Conscious of their personal interest and support of Nazareth Academy and St. Joseph, the EXCELSIOR staff dedicates the 1966 Yearbook to Judge and Mrs. Joe E. Kelly. Avid Flyer fans, the Kellys annually support the team, vocally and morally. Judge Kelly serves as secretary of the St. Joseph ' s School Board and also as presi- dent of Annunciation College. An active member of the Mother ' s Club, Mrs. Kelly is chairman of the memorial fund, responsible for purchasing books and various school necessities. To two persons who have earned a permanent place in our hearts, we appreciative- ly dedicate this volume of the EXCELSIOR to Judge and Mrs. Joe E. Kelly. Now Is the Time . . . To Unite and Forge Our Efforts Our lives are composed of time — the happenings, the events, and the incidents which enrich our existence. These events mark the milestones in our development. They shape and prune us to fit our select niches in life. Calling on our past experiences, we must plan for the future. We must map our accomplishments, our assets, and our failings to discover our own solution to the grand jigsaw puzzle that is life. Perhaps our most memorable milestones are shaped during our school years. As we progress, we experience . . . a joy of belonging . . . a thrill of accomplishment . . . a thirst for knowledge . . . a hope of success . . . a pang of disappointment . . . a longing for fulfillment . . . a deep trust in God. One fleeting instant of our time, this year, is now .passing— it is only what we have made it.

Beck, pastor, Father Wallace Stiles, and Father Patrick Fidgeon play a very important role in the spiritual de- velopment of the Nazareth Aca- demy and St. Joseph students. Through their zeal, influence, and untiring efforts in leading souls to God, it is possible for the students to have the daily privilege of assisting at Holy Mass, receiving Communion, going to Confession, and obtaining valuable counsel in every doubt and perplexity. ing many church, school, and social duties, Rt. Rev. Msgr. F. O.

Aided by a deep knowledge and understanding of the language, customs, and beliefs of the Latin American people, they are better able to work with them in their quest for the ultimate goal — eternal happiness. Being a spiritual guide is a job which calls many types i work, as father Juan Ayerbe Father Vincent Patrizi not only performs many parish duties as as- sistant pastoi cil Oui Lady of Sorrows, but also takes special interest in the activities of the schi " ' I 27 Our Lady of Lourdes Located on the corner of Forest and William, Our Lady of Lourdes Church has long been a landmark lor the people of Victoria. This year a new comer, Fathei David Meurer, is pitching in wholeheartedly at the task of pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes. The duties of pastor demand his complete attention and dedication, and Father Meurer carries out this work to the peak of per- fection. Tackling the job of reducing the burden of the past Ol is father Alphonso I ' .id- alecki ' s difficult assignment. His en- thusiasm in performing these chores is often contagious. As a mission of St. Mary ' s parish, Our Lady of Lourdes has the benefit of a lighter work load. Lourdes ' youth are members of St. Marys C.Y.O. and other parishioners are members in other organi- zations of St. Mary ' s. However, Lourdes organized the first Holy Name Society in the archdiocese of San Antonio. In addition to this, they have an Altar So- ciety and a Boy Scout Troop. 28 Our Lady of Victory Pastor of our Lady of Victory, father Eustace Hermes is a native of this area. Administration of this parish keeps him busy. Assistant pastor, Father Eugene O ' Callaghan keeps tabs on Vic- tory ' s extensive records. Newest parish in Victoria, Our Lady of Victory serves approximately 1000 families with spiritual and mental guidance. Children of the parish are taught in the parish ' s parochial school operated by the Sisters of The Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacarament. Other parish organizations are C.Y.O., Parent— Teacher Club, Altar Society, Legion of Mary, Boy Scouts, C.C.D. and Knights of the Altar. Father Gerald Hubertus en- ters the sacristy for an even- ing Mass. The only consecrated church in Victoria is Our Lady of Victory. Zealous teachers, counselors, and friends, the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sac- rament have endeared themselves to generations of Nazareth students. Through their ardent teaching and noble example, they have inspired and prepared us to face the many challenges and decisions which we shall encounter in future years. Although their main objective is to promote our spiritual and intellectual develop- ment, their interest extends beyond the class- room into the individual problems of every student. Their daily contacts with us manifest a spirit of generosity, friendliness, and mercy. From them we have gained spiritual, intellectual, and social insights which have brought each of us closer to God and to humanity. The IWBS Sisters have given us the light of knowledge to guide us along the path of accomplishment. Sr. M. Imeldac School Supervisor Sr. M. Borgia High School Principal Sr. M.

Thou hast understood my thoughts afar off: my path and my line thou hast searched out. And thou hast foreseen all my ways; for there is no speech in my ton- gue. Behold. O Lord, thou hast known all things, the lest and those of old; Thou hast formed me, and hast laid thy hand upon em. Thy knowledge is become wonderful to me; It is high, and I cannot reach to it. Whither shall I go from thy spirit or whither shall I flee from thy face?

Americanism Activities Promote Patriotic Ideals Melanie Pizzalato, with the assistance of Linda Wagner, Nancy Taylor, and Linda Kouba, prepares to raise the flag, initiating Americanism Week activities. Striving to promote an active- interest in the principles of our country ' s freedom and our great American heritage, the annual project of Americanism Week was held at Nazareth Academy under the direction of chairmen, Na- ncy Taylor, Cynthia Lazarin, and Melanie Piz- zalato. The curriculum for the- week included special guest speakers, student assemblies, panels, and forums. These special activities were commenced each morning by a flag-raising cere- mony on the playground for the entire high school. Thus, through these patriotic activities and under the Star Spangled Banner ol America, the youth of today are prepared lor t he i i job as the leaders of tomorrow. 98 Preparing to carry the flag to the Americanism Assembly are John Wright and Dion Holm. At St. Joseph ' s a precedence has been set whereby we honor the American Constitution and Heritage. The youth of America must be brought to realize that freedom was not given to us, but was earned by the sweat and blood of our forefathers. The project is organized and co-ordinated by the student that repre- sented St. Joseph ' s at Boys ' State the previous summer. Through debates conducted among the students and enlightening speeches by civic-minded citizens of the county and state, students gain a greater appreciation of their heritage. Dan Hebner, Boys ' State Representative student council and Yearbook Co-editor organized the Americanism Week for the 1965-66 academic year.

Without these lour qualities one may not be considered a true senior ot Nazareth or St. Joseph at heart. Leadership is shown when a senior, by participating in most school activities, sets the pace for the entire student body. Scholarship is achieved when a senior can say, " I have tried and have done my best and was successful. " Character is signified by a senior ' s actions, comments, his respect lor both the faculty and his fellow classmates, and most important, his manners. The final quality of a dedicated senior is service. No matter what the cir- cumstances may be, if called upon, one should serve his school to the best of his ability.
