By now many of you have received correspondence regarding an effort to produce an All-School Alumni Directory. This project was put in motion in response to the increased requests from legacy alumni to gather information on classmates for reunions and other important communications. Pope John Paul II High School (PJP) contracted Publishing Concepts Inc. (PCI) to complete this initiative to be able to provide a thorough list of all the graduates who make us what we are today -- a product of the foundation of Catholic Education that began with St. Matthew’s and St. Patrick’s, was nurtured by St. Pius X, Bishop Kenrick, Archbishop Kennedy, and Kennedy-Kenrick and rooted today to become Pope John Paul II.
We encourage all legacy alumni to respond to these mailings requesting verification and updating your information. The current database is a combination of many different systems and this endeavor is designed to have all of our information on the same platform. The results will not only help to assemble the directory itself, but will enable us to have your most current information to provide to reunion committees and invite you to events that are specific to your alma mater.
While there are options to purchase the directories in hard or electronic versions, you are under no obligation to purchase anything. Remember, the main reason for this project is to make sure we obtain current contact information that connects you to your school.
If you have never visited PJP, we invite you to stop in and see for yourself the many ways we have incorporated our legacy schools. One area in particular, The Legacy Atrium, proudly displays memorabilia and recognizes alumni from every school in our Legacy Impact Hall of Fame. Most importantly, you will feel the energy and enthusiasm of our nearly 800 students who, like you, are experiencing the impact of a quality Catholic education.
