Our tenth annual Alumni Sunday is “in the books,” and we hope everyone who attended enjoyed the day. We know that Nik Brodfuehrer and Denise Moll Lanz, ’71, did! As winners of the split club raffle, they each received $750 in prize money. A matching amount of $1,500 will be donated to Blessed Trinity’s Under This Roof Fund, which supports preservation and restoration of the Landmark church. Many thanks to Jerry Powers, ’51, for organizing the raffle.
More than 25 people showed up early and were treated to a mini-tour of the church led by Blessed Trinity docents and BTS graduates, Mickey Stiffler Dick, ’59, and Tom Brodfuehrer, ’75.
Alumni joined parishioners at the 10 o’clock Mass, where prayer intentions included recently deceased alumni and faculty: Clayton A. Steinwachs, ’30; Dorothy B. Moll Sheehan, ’38; Sister Patricia Reen, ’45; James R. Hartzell, ’46; Joan M. Dengler Linde, ’48; Francis “Fritzi” Nicklas, ’60; Jeanne O’Connor Lupke, ’64; Anne Marie Gampp LaPorta, ’64, Stephen R. Besch, ’65; Michael s. Faraci, ’66; Mary F. Gampp, ’66; Maureen M. Sheehan Cook, ’74; and Sister Thomas Aquinas Lennon, SSJ, a member of the faculty from 1951-1960.
Alumni attending from out of state included Arlene Horn McCarville, ’48 (Florida); Dick Powers, ’55 (California); and Lou Stegmeier, ’65 (Ohio). Click HERE to view more photos from the Mass, tour and reception.
