Plot: Regina is about to divorce her husband when she finds that he has been murdered after converting every penny they owned to cash, which is also missing. She meets Cary Grant who changes his name every 15 minutes or so and is interested in her husband’s money, which seems to have come from a WWII payroll he stole. His partners in crime are also very interested in where the money is, as he stole it from them as well. Everyone assumes Regina MUST know where the money is. The situation becomes more tense when the searchers begin turning up dead.

Hello All!

I am very excited to announce the Ruth Institute 2010 National Student Leadership Conference: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village.

The conference provides college students with an intense weekend with top scholars discussing the social significance of marriage and the family. By the end of the conference students will understand the urgency of defending natural marriage and be motivated to take the message of lifelong married love back to their campus. The attached flyer gives all the details, as well as a photo of some of the students from last year. (For more details from last year, go here. ) The conference will be held near San Diego, CA August 12-15, 2010. The conference applications and more information can be found here.  A limited number of travel grants and conference scholarships are available to qualified students.

Planning for Walk for Life Youth Rally

When:  Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

Time: 8-9pm

Location: St. Jude

Hey JP Catholic Students,

Some of you may already know but for those of you who don’t:

Our school is hosting a youth rally that will take place in San Francisco after the Walk for Life in 2011. This is to be organized by the students of JP Catholic, and is underneath the Diocese of San Francisco, and Walk for Life. We are in the process of receiving major funding for this event, and it is going to be a huge deal!

The San Francisco Diocese along with Walk for Life are extremely excited for this event and have been hoping for such an event to take place for years now, but haven’t had to team to organize it. Through connections they have asked me to organize this event with the help of the students of JP Catholic.

I would like anyone who is interested in helping from editing video material from the walk, making fliers, making phone calls, and brain storming ideas, and many other tasks to please come to this meeting. This is an amazing opportunity for us students and great publicity for our school.

I will fill everyone in on details of what exactly the rally is all about when we meet. Feel free to email me with any questions.

Movie Night – Thursday, May 14

Where: The Perch

Time: 8pm


As three sailors – Gabey (Gene Kelly), Chip (Frank Sinatra), and Ozzie (Jules Munshin) – begin their shore leave, Gabey falls in love with the picture of “Miss Turnstiles”, who is actually Ivy Smith (Vera-Ellen). The sailors race around New York attempting to find her in the brief period they have (“New York, New York“).

They are assisted by, and become romantically involved with, two women, and pair up: Ozzie with Claire (Ann Miller), an anthropologist; and Chip with Hildy Esterhazy (Betty Garrett), an aggressively amorous taxi driver; and eventually, Gabey with Ivy, an aspiring actress. Hildy invites Chip to “Come Up to My Place”. Claire claims that she’s found her passionate “Prehistoric Man” in Ozzie at the Museum of Natural History. Gabey takes Ivy on an imaginary date down “Mainstreet” in a studio in Carnegie Hall. Later, Chip sincerely falls for Hildy telling her “You’re Awful”–awful nice to be with. That evening, all the couples meet at the top of the Empire State Building to celebrate a night “On the Town”.

But when Ivy must leave early to work as a cooch dancer, the friends tell a despondent Gabey, “You Can Count on Me”, joined by Hildy’s hilarious roommate, Lucy Schmeeler (Alice Pearce). They have a number of adventures reuniting with Ivy at Coney Island before their 24-hour leave ends and they must return to their ship to head off to sea. Although their future is uncertain, the boys and girls share one last kiss on the pier as a new crew of sailors heads out into the city for their leave (“New York, New York reprise”).
