A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

The Fine Arts Association is holding their annual benefit show on Friday night at 7:00 pm in Holy Angels.  This is an opportunity to enjoy some great Cathedral talent - all benefitting our fine arts program. 


We plan to recognize Fred Rupp with a whole day of activities in his honor.  May 23 will be FRED RUPP DAY at Cathedral High School.  If your student is one of Fred’s students, a runner on his cross country team, or a member of a Voyageur crew, they probably have memories, stories, and much gratitude for this inspiring teacher, coach, and mentor. Or perhaps, you have messages and best wishes to Fred as he retires from teaching.  We know that there are great stories out there, inspiring moments, along with heartfelt thanks.   We will gather these and present them to him on this day.
Send your messages and stories to Principal Lynn Grewing:
Lynn Grewing
Cathedral High School
312 7th Ave. N.
St. Cloud, MN. 56303

Students are encouraged to dress for the day.  Three choices: cross country apparel, Voyageur gear, and (as Fred wears every day) khaki pants and a plaid shirt.

After the day’s festivities, we will have an adult reception for Fred, 4:00 to 7:00 pm in Cathedral’s library.  We hope that lots and lots of you will make an effort to be there to greet Fred, and pass on your best wishes for his retirement.
At this time, this day/event is a secret. We're hoping to keep it a surprise for Fred.


Brady Hughes graciously takes pictures at our prom every year and then makes them available for you to see. Here is the link: http://smu.gs/2qQg613   Thanks Brady!

The Middle School Band/Choir Concert is tomorrow evening (May 18) at 6:15 for Choir and 7:00 pm for Band.


Students will turn in their laptops on their last day of school.  It's very important that they also turn in all of the extra accompanying pieces that they received. You might want to start gathering those now.  Here's the list (besides the computer, bag, etc.): strap, adaptor, duckhead, and extension cord. Students have also received this message. 

We do not allow any students to keep their computers over the summer.

A message from Father Ben:

Dear Parents,
Patrick Flynn and I are excited to offer a 2018 summer pilgrimage to Rome for next year’s juniors and seniors! Just think, as they spend time in Rome, Siena, Florence, and Assisi as they will be able to grow in their faith though prayer, learning about the lives of the saints, Italian culture, history, and more! Patrick and I will also be offering a class in the spring of 2018 which will prepare the students for what they will see. They will earn two free college credits! Please come to an informational meeting this Sunday, May 21st at 5 PM (just before the concert) to receive a packet of information and hear more about itinerary, costs, etc! We will meet in the conference room at CHS next to the cafeteria. We are not asking for any commitment at this time.
