This is a blog for the St. Mary Cathedral All Class Reunion. The committee for the All Class Reunion

Jim Shea and Stella Mudd Thelen co-chairs
Ann Kerns Shea
Jim Keyes
Carol Newas Moody
Cindy Shea (Jim's Wife)

I am Mary Ellen Shea Clifford, Class of 1970, and I have offered to monitor the blog. This will be a place for memories, posting information about the reunion, asking if you have addresses for people we are still looking for to contact, etc. Have fun looking back on articles from different years - catching up with friends - keeping informed on the activities for the 2nd All Class Reunion.

Is there something special you remember about St. Mary's? Do you have a picture you want posted? Scan it and send it to Mary Ellen.

So - welcome - we look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you Mary Ellen Shea Clifford for the fast action in setting up the St. Mary Cathedral Blogspot. I hope that many, many graduates and friends will share their experiences from their years at St. Mary's.

I know the reunion will be great....I couldn't be anything less with Jim running things. Hope I can make it...but this family and weddings are starting to take over my life.

Stella Mudd Thelen said...

I hope everyone who wants to come will be able to make it to the Reunion, and I look forward to seeing my classmates especially, since we have not had a reunion in a long time. I happen to have a nun's outfit that belongs to Teresa Caulfield and I may even wear it! Stella Mudd Thelen

Hi Everyone
I am looking forward to the next reunion. The last one was great. I have made several re-contacts over the last couple of years and realize how important our friendships were. I will post a few pics if I can figure our how to do that. See you all next year!

Mary Ellen,
You are so organized! I remember the last all school reunion when I found out that my daugher who was attending Aquinas College, had Sr. John Thomas as a teacher there....and worse yet...she looked just as young as she did when WE went to SMC! Not fair!

Hi Barb! We met Sr. John Thomas at Aquinas when we attended my daughter Elizabeth's graduation. You're right - has she aged at all???

I was looking at the names and was wondering if Jim's wife Cindy is the same person who taught at St. Mary's late 70's early 80's-ish?

Cindyshea said...

Hi Tania - Yes, I'm the one that was teaching there in the early 80's. I taught Religion class - What is your name?

Hi everyone,
I was just so sad when I saw the pictures of the demolition of our School. It will definately be sad when I get there to the church for Mass on August 9th.
Is anyone else from the class of 78 visiting this blog site?
