Class of 1968 - 50th Reunion

Cathedral Crusaders Class of 1968!

The Advancement Office at CHS has put together some great activities throughout the weekend, and we will be adding to them as celebration of our Golden Jubilee draws closer. We hope you will be able to attend and enjoy the events.

On Friday, August 10 there will an Art Crawl in downtown St. Cloud. Meet up and join other Cathedral alums at the Red Carpet Martini Bar from 4-8 pm. It is the gathering point for strolling through the great businesses downtown. It includes free hor d’oeurves. Be looking for additional Friday evening TBA by our class event coordinators.

Saturday, August 11 there will be a Beyond 40th Brunch. This is a new opportunity for those alumni that have graduated in 1978 or before. It will be held at 10:30am in the CHS Cafeteria. This should be great, and you will likely be the old people. There will be docent walks around campus from 11:30 to 1:30. You may relive some of “those” moments and locations, if you can remember.

For those of you who like golf, please contact Jack (new knees) Paulsen at 320-250-6697. He will set up a scheduled round for Saturday morning. At this point we will play 9 holes, focused on comradery, trash talk and general merriment. All classmates and mates are encouraged to come. No competition, your handicap can’t possibly be higher than Jack's anyway. BYOC or rent.

On Saturday evening we will celebrate our 50th Reunion at Café Renaissance in Waite Park from 6:00 – 10:00 pm. We will be having heavy hor d’oeurves made up of four food stations including Italian, French, Mediterranean and a sweet station. The cost is $25 per person. The bar, while not included, is pretty good too. If you have questions, call the numbers below.  

There will be a Mass on Sunday, August 12 at St. Mary’s Cathedral at 9:45am followed by an ice cream social. We hope people will take the spirit of the gathering to move on to lunch with classmates and family.

Please share this info with classmates as we certainly do not have enough current addresses or contact information. Encourage everyone to like the Cathedral 68 Reunion Facebook page. Check into the FB event page. Leave comments. Updates will be made here regularly. Let us turn this Golden Jubilee into an event as memorable as our CHS years. 

Meanwhile, help us and CHS out by going to Update Your Information. Give us your update. Please register by July 21st, 2018. We are looking forward to seeing everyone there.
