ACE 2020 Results and Homecoming 2020 Announcement
ACE 2020 WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!!
We didn’t know what to expect when we decided to take the auction online but par for the course, Monarch supporters went online in full force. Prior to the auction and during the online event itself, over $500,000 was raised. Added to that, the Leo J. and Albina Dreiling Trust generously donated the full matching amount of $200,000 to Item #60! ACE 2020, through the support of alumni and community earned in excess of $700,000 toward the future of Catholic education!!! God is good indeed! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!
At this time, out of an abundance of caution, the Alumni Board and Advancement office has made the difficult decision to cancel the Alumni Association sponsored events for Homecoming 2020 which include the open house, parade, deceased alumni Mass, dutch lunch and the Saturday banquet. The 2020 signature class years will be honored at homecoming 2021.
This decision was not easy because we know the joy of celebrating our history together but we also know the significance of our building to the memories you hold. Because of feedback regarding a projected low attendance, scarcity of available venues and without the ability to socially distance and provide a safe environment in the chapel, dining hall and the Rose Garden we do not feel it is right to risk the health of everyone involved. Please note, this pertains to only Alumni Association sponsored events. The school sponsored events will be decided upon at a later date.
We hope this message reaches you prior to making significant plans for travel or events. The Alumni Association will continue to aid you if you are proceeding with any private plans and we will also support the school and students with any events they decide to move forward with including a school sponsored parade.
Please contact us in the Alumni office at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to just say hello. This is a time of uncertainty but we know one thing for certain, our faith in Christ will lead us through.
