Give to the Max Day 2020

Give to the Max Day was created in 2009 to launch GiveMN, a collaborative venture led by Minnesota Community Foundation and many other organizations committed to helping make our state a better place.

That initial spark touched off an outpouring of generosity, raising $14 million in 24 hours. Give to the Max Day has since become Minnesota’s annual giving holiday, raising nearly $200 million in its first 11 years. Every year, thousands of organizations and individuals generate donations and excitement for causes that are working to improve the quality of life for all Minnesotans.

Frassati Catholic Academy certainly improves the quality of life for its students and families. Therefore, on Thursday, November 19, we are asking our community to join together on Give to the Max Day and make a gift to Frassati Catholic Academy. Your investment will be directed to the Frassati Annual Fund, which supports student scholarships and teacher development. Gifts of every size truly make a difference, allowing us to keep tuition steady and make Catholic education accessible to all. 

Please join us on this state-wide day of giving and visit bit.ly/GiveMNFCA to make your gift to Frassati Catholic Academy in support of Catholic education.

Thanks to supporters like you, we are able to fulfill our school mission: Frassati Catholic Academy is dedicated to educating students in a nurturing and encouraging environment grounded in the Catholic Tradition, inspiring a love of learning, and empowering students to grow in faith, while sharing their gifts for the common good.

Prayer Service at St. Mary’s Parish

Adaptation has been the central theme of this academic year. From the way the students walk the halls, to seating arrangements in the cafeteria, every Falcon has done a remarkable job navigating and adapting to the ‘new normal’. One key area of the Frassati experience that has been evolving as the school year unfolds is the way in which we gather to worship. Prior to the pandemic, students would walk with their classes to St. Mary of the Lake Parish on Friday mornings for an all-school mass.

Last week, our middle school students had the chance to gather for a prayer service at the church. The classes took the familiar walk, followed the new seating arrangements, and students led a short prayer service.

It was a great pleasure to see the students excitedly walking down Bald Eagle Avenue to the prayer service last Wednesday, and is a sight we look forward to seeing more of in the weeks to come!
