ATTENTION CATHOLIC SCHOOL ALUMNI

 

     Did you attend a Catholic grade school, middle school, high school or college? If so, get ready to participate in CATHOLIC SCHOOL ALUMNI WEEK!

Holy Cross Catholic School is celebrating 10 years since the school's dedication (August 23, 2009) with CATHOLIC SCHOOL ALUMNI WEEK September 8th - 15th.

The celebration will kick off with Donuts and Coffee after the 10:00 Mass at St. John's on Sunday September 8th. (All are welcome!)

Catholic School Alumni are invited to receive a special blessing at the school's Mass on Wednesday September 11th at 9:30AM. Donuts, coffee and building tours will be available afterwards.

Throughout the week, HCCS students host a school-wide service project to support an HCCS Alumni Family benefitting from Defiance Has Heart and Talent (Sunday Sept. 22). Tickets for this fundraiser, sponsored by the Trees of Life, are available at HCCS.     

Catholic School Alumni week will conclude with the Feast of the Holy Cross on September 14th and the St. Mary's Parish festival on Saturday September 14th & 15th. There will be a special give-away for Catholic School Alumni during the festival.

Stay tuned for more details!

WHERE ARE YOU NOW? It's no secret that Catholic Schools are special and so are the alumni who attended them. Throughout 2019-20, we will be celebrating stories from Catholic School Alumni in our area. We'd love to hear from you! What are you most proud of in your life? What do you remember best about attending Catholic School? Share with us at ameyer@defianceholycross.org
