A Message to Parents

Dear Parents,

Respect for Life club is having their annual Baby wipes drive. It will run through Monday, May 7th. Items needed are new baby supplies and we will donate all proceeds to birthline.

Summer Camps at Cathedral! Registration for summer camps held here at Cathedral is open! There are camps from those who are 4 years old all the way up to graduating seniors - and, they are open to everyone, not just those associated with Cathedral. Sports camps, craft camps, archery, chess, woodworking, photography, STEM, math games - we have lots of the favorites back along with 15 brand new camps! Please visit


for the full listing and to access online registration. Also, please share with your friends and neighbors. Those registered before May 18th received a Cathedral t-shirt. If you have any questions, please contact Julie at 320-257-2120.

This morning (Wed.), a group of Cathedral seniors have planned a Mock Crash event for students in grades 9-12.  The purpose of this activity is to present a realistic portrayal of the events surrounding an alcohol related automobile crash. In addition to the post crash depiction, students will hear from a speaker whose wife was killed last year by a drunk driver. It may very well be too much for sensitive kids who have lost family members or friends in a car accident. If you think that it would be a good ideato have your son/daughter not see it, we definitely want to know that and we will make sure that they have a place to go at that time. While this story may be upsetting, we believe that it has real value for teenagers.  The consequences of drinking and driving are often tragic and terrible, so we need to make sure that these young people have a realistic idea of what can happen.

Please take the time to talk with your teen about the dangers of drinking and driving.  As we move into springtime and all of the events that happen at this time of year: prom, graduation, etc, we pray that all of our students stay safe. 


Our Prom is this Saturday, April 28.  The Grand March is at 6:00 pm. Please make sure that you know where your student is after prom.  When they leave the dance, we want them all to get home safely.  As we have mentioned in the past, please make sure that prom attire is modest and appropriate for a high school event - nothing too bare, low-cut, etc. 

The Prom committee is looking for parents of juniors and seniors to come to the CHS gym at 11:40 pm on Sat April 28th to help tear down the decorations. This can be accomplished in an hour or less if many hands are there to help!!

Please email Rose at the main office at http://rmarsyla@cathedralcrusaders.org if you are willing to help tear down at 11:40 pm. 



Attention: Senior parents/guardians,

 Just a reminder that many things were due at the end of March as it relates to the end of year senior overnight party. This includes things like registration forms, pictures for the DVD, etc. Please see emails from “CHS Grad-party” ( chsgraduationparty@gmail.com ) to get the current reminders and updates. If by chance you are not getting emails from that email, please check your Spam/Junk filters to make sure they are not blocked. If that doesn’t resolve it, please send a note to that email address asking to make sure your email address is updated as they may have an outdated email address for you.

We are still in need of donations for the CHS Overnight Grad Party if you are aware of anyone that is willing to support this year’s party, they can drop donations off at CHS in the main office. Mark the envelope “Senior Party Donation”.

 If you have any questions, feel free to contact Julie Deyak at jdeyak@csbsju.edu or any of the chairs involved with the party.
