Time Capsule Reveal
May 17th
Both campuses will come together and witness the “revealing” of the 1957 time capsule which was entombed in the cornerstone of the UGC addition. We can only guess what we will find inside! We have asked some alumni from that year to join us for this exciting event.
Special Edition Yearbook
To be distributed at the end of this current school year, this yearbook showcases the School’s many legacy students, most popular archival photos and much, much more.
Lake Bluff 4th of July Celebration
July 4th
The School of St. Mary will join in the Lake Bluff festivities this year riding in style in a very special car "on loan" from Lake Forest Sportscars (thank you!!!). Come on out to the parade and say hello! Click HERE to see the School's ad that will appear in the Lake Bluff celebration book.
Lake Forest Days Parade
August 2nd
Join us as we celebrate in style with a very special Centennial float.
Parish-wide Celebration
September 23, 2017
This is our culminating Centennial event. The entire parish community is invited to attend a special 5:00 Mass followed by an all-school reunion and adults-only Centennial party. It’s going to be a wonderful way to celebrate our School.
