Alumni Board President’s Message – 2019

Copy of IMG_8695We are a dedicated group of men that want to pay forward our Saint’s experience of Catholic fraternity, academics and of course Sports.  As an alumni group, we can have an impact on the school and maintaining the “Saint’s Experience”.  Major part of that “Saint’s Experience” is being an active Catholic-Christian in our community, parishes and leaders of the family. The other part is being active in growing the Saint’s culture with our classmates and fellow alumni through annual events.

Beyond the events that we do for the alumni, we would like to add a “continuing education” of being an active Catholic and continue to increase our relationship with Jesus.  Our personal relationship with Jesus is the cornerstone of our spiritual journey.  Without the relationship with Jesus, our religion is just rules and not active part of our daily lives.

The Alumni Association would like to start implementing quarterly activities that tap into our Christian purpose.  We will work with the school’s Religion Department and Kairos to provide an opportunity to update your Catholic education that started when we were at Saints.

We will start with retreats that focus on “Being Catholic Men in the 2020s”, sacraments and active participation in our Catholic communities as the religious leaders in our families.  We should celebrate and be proud of our religion and understand the love and forgiveness that is Jesus.

After High School is a time that we may question the boundaries of our faith as we journey in the secular world.  Many of us fall off the righteous path.  We need to re-engage in why we are Christians and discover the path of our journey.

Stay tuned for more announcements and how you can participate.

As always, the Saints Alumni Association is always looking for ways the school’s alumni can stay connected and involved with their alma mater.  Annually, we host the Saints Alumni Golf and Bocce Tournaments, the Turkey Trot, Saints Poetry contest, Sport Fishing Charter, Reunions/50th year reunion celebration at graduation, and Parochial School football, basketball and soccer tournaments.  Hosting and participating in these events not only aids our efforts in raising money for Saints, but also maintains the camaraderie the school’s brothers share and enhances the experience for current & future generations.

On behalf of the Saints Alumni Association, I would like to thank all of those who have supported our Alumni Association’s fundraising events throughout the years.  With the help and support of our Saints graduates, their families and friends, we have contributed to the school in various ways, like the Saints Capital campaign and building fund, financial aid programs and other involvement programs. Without your help and support, we would not be able to accomplish this mission at our alma mater.

We invite you to be a part of the alumni association and continue your Saints Experience.

If you have any questions or you would like to part of our mission contact me at

Go Saints!
