Network of Sacred Heart Schools

Events & Activities

With a primary goal to “bring our past present,” the SHS alumni relations program is tasked with offering programs, events, and activities of interest to the broadest possible number of Sacred Heart graduates, re-engaging each in the life of the school and sharing in its future. SHS alumni have access to an active and dynamic schedule each year, between ongoing school events and performances, spiritual retreats and workshops, enrichment and educational programs,  social gatherings both on and off campus, awards celebrations, and the annual Alumni Oktoberfest and milestone class reunions.

We hope you will join us for any—or all—of the following!
