The views expressed by writers and photographers in The Present Dei do not necessarily represent the views of Verbum Dei High School, the California Province of the Society of Jesus, or the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Originally a print publication, The Present Dei online news source continues the proud tradition of student journalism at Verbum Dei High School. Chronicling the lives and times shared by the gentlemen of this fine school, The Present Dei has played its part in the 50-year history of the Verb. The decline of print journalism and concurrent expansion of electronic journalism, coupled with the expense of printing a publication, have brought our student journalists into the electronic age.
Verbum Dei High School Mission Statement
Verbum Dei High School is a Catholic, Jesuit, college and career preparatory school, complemented by our corporate internship program, serving young men of Watts and the surrounding communities. We develop self-confident gentlemen who are intellectually motivated, spiritually rooted, contemplative, and courageous in their pursuit of a more humane and just world.
