Inaugural Gala – Info to Know!

Please plan to attend our Inaugural Spring Gala on Saturday, April 25.  The night’s activities include a silent auction, live auction, a wine wall, and a delicious dinner.  Watch the announcements for ways you can support our school’s biggest fundraiser.  See below for a fun way to help!

We are looking for volunteers to host fun group events as a way to raise money and build community! You sponsor the party (or go in with others), plan it, and donate the party to Frassati Auction (just fill out the donation sheet and hand it in).  Gala guests will be charged a fee to attend your event.  Examples of Group Events are: superbowl party, Oscar party,  family friendly outdoor BBQ, a caroling party, a small dinner party, a boat outing, ugly Christmas sweater party bus, bean bag tournament, etc.  It can be anything!  Please contact Rachel Cooper at [email protected] if you have questions or are interested in hosting a Group Event for the Inaugural Gala!

Go Freezing Falcons!
First of all I would like to say Congratulations to the greatest Plunge Team in town! We have reached and surpassed our $7,000 goal and are still climbing! Our current leaders with WHOPPING dollar amounts raised are Joe Wallek (student) and Pat Gallivan (adult)! Unbelievable job with the fundraising! I am beyond proud to be leading this team into the frozen waters of Forest Lake!

Walk in the Footsteps of Blessed Frassati with Fr. Joe

The day after school ends, our school chaplain Fr. Joe will be the chaplain on a pilgrimage (June 6-15) to Italy which will include walking in the footsteps of Blessed Frassati: seeing the villa of his family, the Alps where he hiked, the room in which he died, his place of burial, etc.  The pilgrimage will also include viewing the Shroud of Turin while it is on a rare public display, and seeing the sites of a number of the saints in Northern Italy (including the birthplace of St. Pius X), as well as touring the famous cities of Milan and Venice.  Registration deadline is February 26.
