St. Ita Alumni: Thank You Stitans!
Your generous response to the 2018 St. Ita School Reunion made great things happen! Three young people, children of St. Ita families who are involved in the life of the parish, were awarded scholarships to continue their Catholic School education: one to Northside Catholic Academy; one to St. Thomas of Canterbury School, and one NCA alumnus to DePaul College Prep.
Your generosity also gave the parish the funds to purchase a Statue of Blessed Mother with Child for the top of the stairs at the Broadway entrance to the Church. This will serve as a permanent reminder of how the people of the school – students and their parents, faculty, and staff – were interwoven into the very fabric of the parish. The plaque will read: “A Gift from the Alumni of St. Ita School 1904– 1994”
Please join us for the 5:30 Mass on Saturday, October 5. The dedication of the statue and a reception in Jubilee Hall follow the Mass. It’s a chance to celebrate yourselves, to celebrate the difference you have made, both then and now, and to celebrate the great things that happen when Stitans get together!
