Catholic school reunion to be held Saturday

Whether someone went to St. Mary, St. Henry, St. Joseph, Lenihan or Marshalltown Area Catholic Schools they are invited to a special event next weekend. Area Catholic school alumni will gather for an all-school reunion on Saturday.

The event will include tours of St. Mary and St. Henry attendance centers and the new St. Francis addition from 1 to 4 p.m and a guided tour at Lenihan at 2 p.m. Saturday.

With the expected demolition of the St. Mary building and the complete move to the new addition in the next year, many may want to visit the school for the last time.

“We decided with it being the last year for the St. Mary school building we wanted to give everybody a chance to take pictures and visit it one last time,” said St. Francis Principal Matt Herrick.

The night will cap off with an all-school reunion dinner and party from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

Herrick expects more than 30 people at the party and reservations are requested by calling St. Francis School at 641-753-7977.
