Editor’s Note: Director of Communications Chuck Carmone ’85 recaps the latest edition of “Xaverian Magazine”. At the end of his blog post, find a link to  a great interview with Brother Joseph Pawlika, a beloved Guidance Counselor here at XBHS. (NOTE: Xaverian Alumni: Did you get your copy of the Xaverian Magazine? If not, it’s probably because we do not have your address. Send your name, class year and address to, and we’ll get a one in your hands.)

This year’s Xaverian Winter Magazine is the largest in school history. It’s over 70 pages packed with everything that makes Xaverian an amazing community. It was mailed out to alumni, parents, and given out during this year’s accepted student receptions.

Our cover story features the incredible journey of Xaverian entrepreneur extraordinaire Dennis Crowley ’94. Dennis is the co-founder of Foursquare—a social website that now has over 6 million users and is growing at a blistering pace (it was only 4 million when we wrote the story in December).

We have a great interview with Brother Joe Pawlika, C.F.X. who celebrates his 50 years of being a Xaverian Brother. Senior John Morton travels to Italy with Campus Ministry and also tells us about the rapidly rising SpiritHawk program.

Our fourteen sports teams all have a story to tell, especially the baseball team’s Cinderella story who went on to win the Division 1 EMass title. There are a dozen pages capturing the busy and interesting lives of our alumni, their reunions and events they comeback for every year to reconnect with their classmates. Classmates for 4 years. Brothers for life!

Also take a quick look at the middle of our magazine— it’s our 2010 Annual Report. We acknowledge the phenomenal support our parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends provide Xaverian. Without their efforts Xaverian would not be the incredible place it is today.

If you love Xaverian, you’ll find this magazine hard to put down. I’ve included a story that you’ll find in the magazine on Brother Joe Pawlika. Enjoy!
