Calling All Alumni!

Dear Alumni of Sts. Simon & Jude School,

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the alumni who were able to attend our 50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee, which was highlighted by our Alumni Reception & Grand Reunion held in Colman Hall. The Sts. Simon & Jude Alumni Association is FREE to join! We continue to strive for a partnership with our dynamic, lifelong alumni community who are connected to each other and to our beloved school and parish. If you have not already registered with us, please send your contact information to

Our Alumni Reception & Grand Reunion provided a wonderful opportunity to see so many rekindled friendships taking place, to hear so much laughter, and to host guest list that exceeded even our greatest expectations! With nearly 200 alumni, parents, faculty and former faculty in attendance, it was a memorable evening of music, celebrating and reminiscing. One of the highlights of the evening included “behind the scenes” tours of the school, which was a huge hit with our alumni.

Please take a moment to log on to our Alumni Reception Facebook photo album to view the delightful photographs . Even if you were unable to join us, this trip down memory lane will be an enjoyable one, as you may view both posed group portraits of the various graduating classes in attendance and candid photographs taken throughout the entire evening.

As part of the distinction of being alumni of Sts. Simon & Jude School, SSJ has offered the opportunity for you to proudly wear one of our SSJ Alumni T-shirts, proceeds from which will benefit the Sts. Simon & Jude Tuition Assistance Program. If you would like to order one of these shirts, please send a suggested donation of $25 plus $5 shipping ($30 total) to Sts. Simon & Jude School and complete the order form. Thank you!

We look forward to many more such opportunities to gather together as SSJ Alumni with our parish community for fun and fellowship, and will be contacting you in the future to invite you to join us!
