Archbishop Cordileone blesses new Stinson Center for Learning and Innovation at Serra High School

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone spent the day at Junipero Serra High School on Monday, May 1, where he blessed the new Stinson Center for Learning and Innovation, spoke with students, toured classrooms, and met with theology teachers and campus ministers.

Serra’s new Stinson Center for Learning and Innovation opened to students in April. The 13,000-square-foot learning space, previously known as the Zoph Library, was reimagined into a state-of-the-art center for student collaboration, design-led innovation programs, international student connections and the Serra Global speaker series. The new facility includes  collaboration and presentation rooms,  offices, and video screens.

Archbishop Cordileone praised Serra alumnus Ken Stinson ’60 and his wife Ann, for the generous contributions they made to Serra High School for the benefit of current and future Padres.

Students gathered to witness the blessing and were treated to light refreshments following prayer. Serra’s Men’s Choir sang at the end of the blessing.

The Archbishop also met with teachers from Serra’s theology department and Campus Ministry. He also toured other parts of the campus with Serra chaplain Father Nicholas Case and President Barry Thornton.
