Bosch Studio - Class of 1947



I remember going for my class picture at Bosch Studio on Hamilton Street. It was a very formal event - we sat straight on the stool in a few different poses. We couldn't wait to get those pictures back to exchange the wallet sized ones with our friends and of course both Grandma Brandi and Grandma Shea needed a 5x7 and Mom wanted the 8x10.

Flash forward to my daughters' picture days. There was nothing formal about it. I can truthfully say that both those days were favorite memories. They each had four outfits to change into - 45 photos were taken inside and outside. By a barn door, sitting on a rock, all dressed up standing by a column.

Flash forward to grandchildren - they now get everything on a CD - lots of pictures to choose from - they can print off any extras they want.

Even though the technology has changed - the way you feel that you have "come of age" that graduation is just around the corner. That you really are going out into the world. It is a rite of passage. One that is time honored and appreciated by all.

Strangers in the Box

Tom Kennedy wanted to know where to send some pictures - I told him to ME of course, I would love to add more to the blog. I am still looking for the Yearbooks listed on the left side of the blog - I would love to have every year represented. Then today Tom sent the website to this poem and I thought it was lovely, too.

Strangers in the Box
Come, look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.

I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.

I wonder what their lives were like.
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.

If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where, when,
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.

Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be tossed away?

Make time to save your pictures,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.
© 1997 by Pamela A. Harazim


In 1997, I authored the poem titled, "Strangers in the Box." At the
time I was teaching scrapbooking classes, and used the poem in my
presentations. I have found it in so many places, printed as "author
unknown," but I am trying to correct this and ask that you credit me.

I originally wrote the poem when my mother had dementia, and I realized
that the stories she loved to tell me about her youth and her family
were locked inside her, and I didn't remember them like I was so sure I
always would. Hence, the box of strangers. I have few stories of
family before my grandparents--I need to do some genealogy hunting for
myself!

Feel free to include my email address, in case anyone has any questions.

Thanks,

Calling All Volunteers

Both of the All Class Reunions were smashing successes! Everyone had a great time and it was so great to see so many friends again. It would be a good idea to get new people involved in planning the next one. Most of the work is in the year that the reunion will be held. The present committee feels it shouldn't be every FIVE years - so the next one will probably be in four or six years.

If your class will be having a reunion - why not make it the ALL CLASS REUNION? Or if your class isn't having a reunion one of those years - and you have that St. Mary Cathedral High School Class Spirit and you feel the urge to volunteer. Or if you just had a great time and want to help out with the next one......

Call or email Jim Shea today!

America the Beautiful




I received an email from Marc Melvin - class of 1973 - he sent a picture of a clipping from the school newspaper in either 1969 or 1970 when Jim Schaeffer and he were freshmen. It was a project we did for Mr. Kraemer's Civics class.

Girls Choir - 1948



In 1948 the inside and back cover of the labarum had this picture taken on the steps of St. Mary Cathedral. I assume it is the girls choir.

The Reunion






The reunion was held at Horizons Conference Center in Saginaw. The banquet center was a beautiful facility and the room was set for 865 people. Everything went so smoothly and it was an exciting fun evening.

Jim Storey and Jim Shea headed the program and Bishop Carlson was the guest speaker.

There were several interesting items:

We had reservations for 864 people (graduates, spouses, teachers, clergy, etc) and 576 of them were graduates of St. Mary Cathedral High School.

They came representing residences in 29 states. We used Google map from doorstep of St. Mary’s at 615 Hoyt Street to the address listed in our master roster. So this distance is not as the “crow flies.”

Richard & Leslie Mikulich – Class of 1966 from Santa Rosa, CA 2439 miles! Rich and Leslie received a bottle of champagne. And close runner up was Howard Korth – Class of 1937 from Piedmont, CA 2415 miles!

Louise Becker LaVere – class of 1933 was the oldest attendee. Louise also received a bottle of champagne again a close second was Howard Korth – class of 1937

The most graduates attending from a Class were 26 from the Class of 1968.

A BIG Thank You

Reunion Committee: Stella Thelen and Jim Shea – co-chairs

Committee members: Ann Kerns Shea, Carol Newas Moody, Jim Keyes, Mary Ellen Shea Clifford, and Cindy Shea.

St. Mary Cathedral Staff - Past and present - for help with printing, postage, fielding phone calls, mail, etc.


The Diocese of Saginaw for providing the souvenir bricks that graduates received.

And last, but certainly not least, to those who participated in providing our Catholic education at St. Mary’s. Pastors, sisters, teachers, coaches

Monetary Donations Made To Our Reunion

Denny Troester – Class of 1953

Arlene Coty Holtman – Class of 51

John & Mary Beth Looby – Class of 70

Carol & Claude Creswell – Class of 54

Special Thanks
Steve Dise – who provided the video of the school building.

The Labarum Staffs through the years. Without those precious history books from each graduation year, so much of the documentation of our heritage would be lost!

Liturgy at the Cathedral - August 9, 2008




The reunion began with a liturgy at the Cathedral. Bishop Carlson presided. As the liturgy began, I thought about the many times we celebrated Mass together when we attended St. Mary High School and how so many of us found classmates to sit with at this liturgy - the bonds that began so many years ago were so evident last night.

The picture above was taken from the balcony at Communion. I realized how many decades of classes these people represented - all joining together to thank God for the blessings we have had in our lives; including the experiences we had at a great school with good teachers.

It was a good way to begin our 2nd St. Mary High School All Class Reunion.

Wizner Family - 1965



ALL FROM ONE FAMILY - "A typical Saginaw St. Mary Cathedral family" is Msgr. Eugene A. Forbes' tongue-in-cheek evaluation of these 10 Wizner children who are scattered from the first through the 12th grades at St. Mary school this year. Above Msgr. Forbes welcomes five-year-old first grader Marion on opening day. Others in order of age and height are John, 18 and Kathy 17, both seniors; Mary 16, a junior; David 15 a sophomore; Noreen 13, 8th grade; Ruth 11, 6th grade; Joseph 10, 5th grade; Nanette 9, 4th grade; and Cheryl 7, 2nd grade. Still at home are Christopher 4, Suzanne 3, and Michael, one month. The 13 are children of Mr. and Mrs. John Wizner, 1418 Crapo, Saginaw.

This picture was in the Catholic Weekly dated 9/10/65 and the Detroit Free Press dated 9/18/65.

Frank Walsh



Stella sent this picture of Frank Walsh, who used to own a book store here in Saginaw and who died this year in Florida - she thought that he was a graduate of 1946. His children also went to St. Mary's and he lived on Hoyt Street down my Genesee I think.

I remember in the 70's going to the bingo's with my Mom. I even won $200 one time! The workers were a group of very dedicated parishioners. A few of them are in the picture above (I assume my brother Jim took this picture because he was always working the bingos!)

Demolition of St. Mary Cathedral High School - 2008







I watched Bierlein Construction Crew begin to tear down our school building this afternoon. I stood with Fr. James Wm. Bessert, the current Rector of the Cathedral, watching the crane struggle with the job. Fr. Bessert mentioned that the crew told him this morning that the building was so well constructed that it would take most of the week to complete the job. The diocese also will put aside a limited number of bricks from the demolition to make available to St. Mary Cathedral School alumni.

I have mixed emotions about the demolition. I know the building had to be torn down but as I watched the crane tear down Sr. Roberta's classroom and the fact that my Mom, Elinor Shea, was the secretary in the grade school the last 20+ years it was in existence, I realized how much the building meant to me.

The building, strong and true, is a true comparison of how I think of the alumni of St. Mary Cathedral High School and all the people that made it possible fo us to attend. We can thank our parents and grandparents for their support and dedication and we can thank the good sisters and priests and wonderfully dedicated lay people that cared so much about us and our faith that they worked for years making St. Mary's a great school.

So even though our school building is being demolished this week, each and every one of us holds the spirit of that school within us. WE ARE ST. MARY'S.

Hoyt Street in 1878



Above is Hoyt Street in 1878 - At left is the second Church (1863); center is the Rectory (1874); and right is St. Mary's Academy (1878).

In 1878 the Catholics of the parish were burdened with the debt of St. Mary's Hospital which Fr. van der Bom founded in 1874 so they could not afford to build a new school. The original church building which had housed the school was too old to continue using it. So at the expense of the Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana a new school was built.

Class Log - 1954 and Missal Club Minutes - 1957


Steno Notebook class minutes 1954-55 - (6th grade)

The meeting was started at 2:05 p.m. on Dec. 7, 1954, with a Hail Mary by Sister Eileen Marie. Suggestions were made to improve the classroom they were made by Steve S., James K., JoAnn C., Mike E., Mike D., Galord D., Suzzette C., J. Morrison, Kenneth B., Lynn-Ann W., Tom M., Karyl P. and Sister Eileen Marie.

A move was made to have dues but then someone suggested that the people who talk must pay two cents. Half of it would be for the room and the other half for the pagan babies. Sister said she would think about it.

We are to have a Christmas Party in which there will be two plays. The characters were told and the actors chosen. The meeting ended at 2:24 with a Hail Mary by Sister Eileen Marie.

Respectfully submitted,
Jim Shea

Steno Book minutes of Missal Club - 1957-58 (9th grade)

The last meeting of the Missal Club was held on October 11, at 9:07 a.m. Mary Ann Snyder presiding. The meeting was opened with a prayer. The first order of business was the treasurer's report. She stated that she had no time to compile the accounts, as she had been collecting dues before the meeting.

Next the Confetior, Gospel and Epistle were read and explained by the following: Gloria Butt, Pat O'Donnel, Karyl Pierce, Jim Shea, Bob Herm, Suzette Cutliff, Terry Connelly, Mary Shinners and Susan Block.

The meeting was about to be closed when the treasurer said that she had compiled the dues. In the treasury there is $1.46. And there were no expenditures and that only two classmates had not paid their dues. The meeting was closed with a prayer at 9:28. Jim Shea

Fr. Francis van der Bom - first resident pastor of St. Mary's




At the age of 31, Fr. Francis van der Bom, was sent to St. Mary's East Saginaw on September 30, 1866 to be the first resident pastor. For 23 years, this zealous priest labored in the East Saginaw parish. His achievements were many: making an addition to the school, building the Rectory, aiding in the establishment of St. Mary's Hospital and St. Vincent's Orphans Home and founding Calvary Cemetery.

In recognition of his "outstanding contributions to the welfare of the citizens of Saginaw without distinction as to race, color or creed," Father van der Bom was elected to the Saginaw Hall of Fame on May 30, 1966. One of a select number of 14 outstanding Saginawians to win the honor, Father van der Bom became the first clergyman so designated.

PTA Founders Day Banquet - 1968



Menu - Buffet Style - Baked Ham, Escalloped Potatoes, Potato Salad, Green Beans, Tossed Salad, Rolls and Butter, Cake, Coffee

A Centennial Year gives pause to thing of "time" and what it is all about...
With this in mind, we quote from "What Makes People Successful" ...

Take Time

Take time to think ...
it is the source of power.
Take time to play ...
it is the secret of perpetual growth.
Take time to read ...
it is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray ...
it is the greatest power on earth.
Take time to love and be loved ...
it is a God-given privilege.
Take time to be friendly ...
it is the road to happiness.
Take time to laugh ...
it is the music of the soul.
Take time to give ...
it is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work ...
it is the price of success.

Prom Rules - 1962



Left: At intermission Chet Niles, Patricia Lewis, Tony Westendorf, and Mary Armstrong enjoy an informal chat.

Top: 23 Skidoo! Patti Martell and Mike King revive an old favorite of the 1920's, the Charleston.

Bottom Right: Waiting for the music to begin, Don Melvin gets into position with his date, Marilyn Buncheck. Don, looking very debonair, is wasting not time in getting the evening off to a good start.

The following regulations will be enforced for the Junior-Senior Prom which will be held at the Y.M.C.A. on Wednesday, May 23.

1. No one who has taken an alcoholic drink that evening will be admitted to the prom.
2. There will be no Pre-prom or Post-prom parties to be held that evening.
3. Immodest dress is strictly prohibited for the banquet and prom. Strapless formals are prohibited. Low necklines are immodest. Spaghetti straps are forbidden.
4. The banquet will be held at 6:15. It is for the juniors and seniors, faculty and pastors. The parents are invited to the program (about 7:15)
5. The prom will be held from 9:00 to 12:30.
6. Smoking will not be permitted in any part of the Y.M.C.A. building at any time. Smoking will be allowed just outside the exit doors.
7. Once admitted to the prom, no one who has gone away from the building may return.
8. By direction of the Most Reverend Bishop all students must be home by 2:00 a.m. of Thursday, May 24.
9. All students are expected to be in school at 12:40 on Thursday, May 24. It would be very edifying to seem them at the 11:30 school Mass.
10. Since admission to the prom will be by personalized tickets only it will be necessary that the names of all dates be submitted by May 4, Friday.
Parents of juniors and seniors will be admitted without tickets.
11. If you are inviting an outsider as your date, please inform them of the rules.

Dear Parents, we ask for your wholehearted cooperation to make this banquet and prom a success for your son or daughter. With your help it can be an event of happy memories rather than one filled with regrets.
