For 59 years, with the support of parents, parishioners, and the community, St. Lawrence Catholic School has provided a Christ-centered education, developing the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, and creative qualities of faith-filled citizens. Daily exposure to the Catholic faith is critical to developing a strong religious foundation and such an important element to helping strengthen our families during such challenging times. Our annual gala, hosted by the STL Parents Club, is our school’s largest fundraiser, helping us provide additional resources to continue the tradition of excellence. This year, we will celebrate and “Gather Together” on March 6, 2021.
Our gala will look a little different than years past, but we are embracing the change and optimistically looking forward. There is an option to watch a live stream of the gala from the comfort of your home or you can purchase tickets and be seated in Higgins Hall and experience the event in person. For those watching the live stream, there will be to-go dinners available. Bids on auction items will be accepted through your mobile device by those attending in-person and those viewing via live stream.
Right now, more than ever, we need your help. The school budget relies on a portion of the church offertory and the funds generated by Higgins Hall rentals, but since February 2020, Higgins Hall has been dark, and offertory has decreased. We respectfully ask that you consider becoming a Sponsor and supporting our school. No amount of support is too small whether it be through volunteering your time, donating an auction item, or providing a monetary donation.
This year we are raising funds to pay for the installation of a new and much needed communication system enabling fast, reliable communication for the entire campus. This will involve all daily communication needs as well as handling emergencies safely and efficiently. Many of these situations are time sensitive, so this ensures fast delivery of information throughout the entire school/campus and peace of mind that our school is safe under everyday conditions as well as emergency situations.
Please review the attached material that details various sponsorship opportunities. Your support is vital, and due to the Covid-19 impact, a critical component to the success of our gala. We are hoping to greatly increase parishioner and alumni involvement this year. If you are a graduate of St. Lawrence, please reach out by email so we can include you in the upcoming celebrations.
St. Lawrence is here to stay, but we must Gather Together and keep Catholic education accessible in our community and our school moving forward. Thank you for your consideration! We look forward to your support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of us below.
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!
