Dear St. Lawrence Family and Friends,


St. Lawrence Catholic School is celebrating 60 YEARS of excellence 

in Catholic education.  We can only continue to do this because of 

YOUR generous support… the support of our parents, our parishioners, 

our friends, and our community.

Our annual Gala, first started as the “Golden Apple Gala” in 1999, 

is hosted by the STL Parents Club, and is one of our school’s largest 

fundraisers benefitting much needed campus renovations 

and our student tuition assistance program. 

Our founding Pastor, Msgr. Laurence E. Higgins, established our school 

because of a deep belief in the Catholic faith, the need for Catholic 

education in our community, and the desire to share his love for Christ.  

He knew the benefits of a Catholic education being a unique,

learning experience because it nurtures the mind, body, and spirit.

All three are necessary for a happy, healthy, and balanced life.  

Our school provides our students the invaluable opportunity 

to expand their knowledge, explore their passions, create community, 

strengthen their sense of self, and come to know God all in one place.

Msgr. Higgins knew that with the help of the good people of 

St. Lawrence and our community, he could fulfill that dream.  

The Gala is OPEN TO ALL!  We hope to have staff, parents, parishioners, and alumni celebrating with us!  

Due to many of our supportive vendors and their businesses being affected by the pandemic, we need to change the event date.   

We are enthusiastically closing Catholic Schools Week with our Gala!
