Dear St. Lawrence Family and Friends,
It’s a PARTY and YOU ARE INVITED!
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!
Be on the lookout for Ticket Information!
Sponsorship Packets will be sent out soon!
Your support is vital, and due to the impact of Covid-19,
there are more families needing tuition assistance.
Please help make their dreams come true and give the
gift of Catholic education to a deserving child.
You will be part of creating a strong foundation for all our children.
It’s with the support of the greater community
that we are still here today, developing the spiritual, moral, intellectual,
social, and creative qualities of faith-filled citizens.
An enormous heart-felt THANK YOU to our Teachers, Principals,
and Pastors (past and present) who have made a difference
in the lives of each child that has walked the halls of St. Lawrence Catholic School.
As a nod to last year… let us safely gather together, for together we can make a difference
in the lives of our children, and in the future of our school ~ This is why we give!
