Our Annual Alumni Mass will be held at Blessed Trinity Church on Sunday, September 28, 2014, at 10 A.M. We look forward to welcoming all alumni, especially the graduates of 1944, 1954, 1964 and 1974 who will celebrate significant anniversaries. We encourage those graduates to contact their classmates and take advantage of the occasion to arrange individual class reunions.
A reception in St. Charles Hall following the Mass provides an ideal opportunity to reminisce and renew acquaintances. Please consider bringing a food item to share.
As part of our annual Mass, we pause to remember all deceased alumni and faculty, and the names of graduates who have passed away since last year’s Mass will be read. We will be remembering Edward Oscar Steinwachs, ’29; Sister Mary Helen (Teresea) Hope, ’36; Bernice Schwanekamp Graff, ’39; William J. Dengler, ’40; Joan M. Downs West, ’46; Frederick K. “Fritz” Ehlers, ’49; James J. Speyer, ’52; Michael H. Stone, ’53; David P. Zimolong, ’55; Donald Sheridan, ’56; Donald C. Nicklas, ’57; Karen E. Sweeney, ’64; Stephen D. Martin, ’66; and 1925 graduate and beloved former teacher, Margaret M. Foisset Schirmann, who passed on December 18, 2013, just two weeks before her 103rd birthday. May they rest in peace. Please inform the committee if you are aware of other recent alumni deaths by leaving a message HERE, and their names will be added to the prayer intentions on that day.
In conjunction with the September 28, 2014 alumni gathering, we are sponsoring our Fifth BT Alumni Raffle for the purpose of raising funds to help pay for restoration and repairs on our beautiful Church. Since we began our raffles in 2009 we have raised over $9,400, half of which was donated to the Church, with the remaining monies (after Alumni Committee expenses) divided among the winners (2 each year). We want to continue this tradition and, with your help, we hope to have an equally successful fundraiser. The drawing will take place at the reception following the Alumni Mass. You don’t need to be present to win, but you DO need to return your completed ticket stubs and check payable to “Blessed Trinity Alumni” no later than September 22, 2014. Raffle tickets — priced at $5.00 each or six (6) for $25.00 — will be in the mail by August 22, so watch for yours. Winners will be notified by mail and included in a post on this web site and on the Blessed Trinity School Alumni Facebook page. You may also purchase tickets at the reception prior to the drawing. To request raffle tickets, check your status on our mailing list, or change your contact information, click HERE and leave a detailed message.
One hundred thirty alumni and guests enjoyed our October 13, 2012 all-class reunion dinner, with seventy attending Sunday’s Mass and reception. (Click HERE to view photos). The Alumni Committee continues to provide a time and place for you to reunite with former classmates and neighbors each year. As in the past, we encourage each of you, particularly members of the anniversary classes, to personally contact members of your graduating classes regarding alumni activities. We are willing to provide whatever contact information we have for your classmates, but our committee is just too small to do the organizing for you.
To update or add your contact information, click HERE and send us the following information: your name (including maiden name), year of graduation, mailing and email addresses, and a preferred phone number. We promise not to share your information except for purposes of class reunions.
We hope you will plan to join us on Sunday, September 28, 2014. If you have any questions or comments, Click HERE and leave a message for the Alumni Committee.
