Class of 1965: 50th Reunion
The Class of 1965 gathered to celebrate their 50th Year Reunion in September 2015. In addition to touring the school and The Archives at the Chapel museum, the alums attended a special Mass followed by a catered dinner. Fond memories were shared, including one of Monsignor Charles Klauder, pastor at that time, being out on the playground…throwing the football with the boys and jumping ropes with the girls…all while wearing his white cassock, as well as his overall commitment towards ensuring all students who desired a Catholic education would have a spot at St. John’s! The group was impressed with how steadfast many traditions of St. John's remain, as well as excitement over the upgrades being provided to current students. The event provided a wonderful forum to reunite across the years!
Class of 1984: 30th Anniversary
The Class of 1984 reunited during the summer of 2014 for an informal gathering. Classmates celebrated Mass together and then toured the school with their fellow classmate and our alumni president, Bill Hilbert. They then headed over to join the summer festival (Bash & Dash 2014) to enjoy some live music, good food, and great friends. Despite the downpour, it was a wonderful opportunity for classmates to reconnect.
Class of 1972: 40th Anniversary
The Class of 1972 celebrated their 40th year reunion on August 4, 2012. Classmates met at St. John's Church where they celebrated Mass followed by a tour of the school. The group then headed off to Acqua Restaurant for a wonderful evening of sharing memories and catching up with former classmates. (Additional photos from the reunion may be fund on St. John's Alumni Facebook page.)
Class of 1963: 50th Anniversary
The Class of 1963 reunited during the summer of 2013 for a magical evening that will undoubtedly remain in the hearts and minds of those who attended for many years to come. Commencing with the celebration of Mass, our alums shared stories, photographs, and smiles during a wonderfully catered dinner and reception. Words cannot adequately convey the joy and community shared among these golden alums!
"We built this to be used and we will push out the walls in order to keep the children here, because when they are here, they are only a step away from the House of the Lord."
