After a one year hiatus, the annual Catholic Central Legacy Reunion Mass and Luncheon was held at CC on June 9, 2021. Over 155 alumni and guests were in attendance. This wonderful gathering is held in conjunction with the original June Feast of St. Basil and includes all of the classes that are 50 or more years removed from their CC graduation (1929-1971). This includes alumni from our first three school buildings on Harper Avenue, Belmont Avenue, and Outer Drive. This great day of CC camaraderie and fellowship started with Mass in the CC Chapel, followed by an informal lunch and gathering. Mass was celebrated by CC Class of 1965 alumnus, Fr. Bob Schikora ‘65; who also was one of the founding members of the Alumni Glee Club. Also, some classmates from the great Classes of 1950 and 1951 attended with family and friends as they celebrated their 71st and 70th reunion years of graduation from Catholic Central! Congratulations to them on this fantastic milestone! Furthermore, we welcomed “the rookies”, first-timers from the Classes of 1970 and 1971 who are celebrating their 51st and 50th years of graduation from Catholic Central. We thank all our alumni in attendance for their example and love for Mary, Alma Mater. A special thank you to Fr. John Wheeler, C.S.B. ’57 and the entire Alumni Glee Club for leading us in song during Mass.
