On Sunday, September 27, 2015, members of the Alumni gathered for their ninth annual Memorial Mass and all-class reception at Blessed Trinity. Attendees included graduates from as far back as 1930 through the Fortieth Anniversary and final graduating class of 1975. Parish docent and 1959 graduate of the school, Mickey Dick, provided early arrivals with a guided tour of the Landmark Church. Alumnae Madonna Hartzell, ’55; Marianne Pernick, ’56; and Kathleen Marien acted as greeters; Roberta Schmelzer Lukasik and Thomas Brodfuehrer, representing the Sixtieth and Fourtieth anniversary classes, respectively, and Edward Marien of the Class of 1944 presented the Offertory gifts. The Prayer of the Faithful included special intercessory prayers for alumni, with fourteen recently deceased alumni remembered by name.

Following the Mass, alumni, friends and family members were able to renew acquaintances and view school memorabilia at an all class reception in St. Charles Hall. Several in attendance merit special recognition. Marilyn Gesl Arcara, ’45, prepared an exhibit tracing five generations of the Gesl family at Blessed Trinity. James Foley requested contact information for surviving classmates of the Class of 1941, and contacted each of them prior to the gathering. Tom Brodfuehrer from the Class of 1975 was the youngest graduate in attendance, and 99-year-old Clayton Steinwachs, Class of 1930, was the eldest.

The highlight of the reception was a split club raffle, with two lucky winners and the church’s Under This Roof fund sharing in the proceeds. Jane Feldman of Seattle, WA and Amy Vasko of San Diego, CA split a $1,300 prize, with the church’s Under This Roof Fund receiving the $1,300 match. In addition to this gift from the Alumni Association, our mailing also raised $740.00 in individual alumni contributions for the dedicated fund.
