A diocesan Catholic school rolled out the red carpet on Friday, May 26, for their own version of the Academy Awards.

The stars hit the stage at St. Athanasius Catholic Academy, but one winner swept every category, Father Ron D’Antonio.

He’s retiring after teaching at the school for nearly two decades. Father D’Antonio has always loved movies and television so much that as a child he dreamed of being an actor.

Students and teachers decided to incorporate movies into the event and put on a Hollywood celebration to honor him.

Father D’Antonio will spend his retirement at his home parish of St. Simon and Jude in Gravesend.
