Memory: Mrs. Phyllis Pregiato, Upper School Theology Teacher and Upper School Theology Department Chair

“When I was a little girl, we would often go over to my cousins house during the Christmas season.  They had a huge living room, and huge tree that touched the ceiling, underneath the tree, there was a very elaborate train set.  The train was only set up during Christmas, so it was really special, and such fun to watch.”
