It’s Time to Think About Reunions

January 24, 2024

“Do you remember that one time when—?”

“I wonder what ever happened to –”

“We should do this more often!”

We hear questions and comments like this all the time at reunions, and now is the time to start thinking about YOUR reunion.

Purcell Marian supports the reunions of St. Mary, Regina, Purcell, Marian and Purcell Marian graduates. If your class year ends in a 4 or a 9, it’s time to think about reunions for this year!

Whether it’s your 10-year reunion, big 50th, or 35th, Purcell Marian is ready to help you think about how to celebrate with your class.

While our small advancement team doesn’t have the capacity to plan each reunion for each class (this year alone, there would be up to 24 individual class reunions across our five families of schools!), we are here to help in any way we can with guidance and assistance on logistics and registrations. This includes helping you with contact information for your classmates, publicizing the event on our channels, and more.

Reunions can be as easy to plan as a happy hour at a local bar or as formal as a seated dinner at a rented venue. Many classes like to do things such as golf outings or gathering at a favorite restaurant. Each reunion is as unique as the graduating class and most classes include a gift back to the Purcell Marian in their plans.

Reunion Planning Toolkit

Linked above is a packet that provides all the guidance to plan a reunion event. Several alumni-owned businesses are listed should you want to use one of their establishments and support a Purcell Marian alumni-owned business. The list is by no means all-inclusive, and if you know of other alumni-owned businesses that would like to be listed and included, please feel free to use them and let us know so we can update this resource.

If your class is ready to celebrate, reach out, and let’s begin the conversation.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. We’re here to assist you however we can. We sincerely hope your reunion is a wonderful time!
