St. Celestine Alumni

St. Celestine School loves its Alumni! We hope you know you are always part of the St. Celestine family and welcome at this school and parish. You are encouraged to visit, attend mass and have reunions whether they are big or small. We have a graduation class photo gallery in our school lobby.

Please update your address and personal information with the Alumni Database Form below. We only use this information to track alumni in our database for reunions and mailings from the school once in a while. We do not sell or give away this list.

Reunions and Tours


Reunions at St. Celestine are lots of fun and we love having our alumni back at the school to visit, take tours and celebrate together. If you would like a tour for 2-3 people or are from out of town and want to stop in and visit the school with 2-3 people you are welcome to call the school and schedule a tour with the school office. Call the School Office at 708-453-8234 or email the principal Sheila Klich at sklich@stcelestineschool.org.

If you would like to hold a larger reunion (an entire class or a multi-class reunion) at St. Celestine please call the parish office to reserve a date and room/facilities (annex, gym, lunchroom, etc.) at 708-453-2555. When you call say you would like to schedule a class reunion and they will put you in touch with the calendar scheduler.

Many reunions on Saturday evenings are natural to tie in 5:00 pm mass with a dinner party to follow or any mass on Sunday as well. You can visit the parish site to see all our current mass timesCLICK HERE. We are able to give you the space, tables and chairs, but the food, beverages and decorations are up to the reunion coordinators.

Once your date is set with church, you can call the school office at 708-453-8234 and let them know if you would like school tours available for your group. A staff or faculty member will have a key and be available to walk you through the school, otherwise the reunion is simply held in the Annex and Gym.

Some reunions have visited the school for large group tours only to start the evening, and then held the reunion offsite at a local restaurant after the tour. This is always an option we are happy to accommodate.

You can use the parish bulletin to list your reunion and try to reach people that are still in the neighborhood. Please visit the parish website for who to email and deadlines. Of course Facebook and other social media is a great way to keep in touch with and search for your classmates.

Much of our annual fund goes to keeping our technology state-of-the-art. We need to keep hardware, software, licenses and the network current. We have 1:1 technology from preschool through 8th grade and for all the teachers, staff, and special rooms, so there are over 500 devices at any time that need to be monitored. CLICK HERE to see the technology that donors like you made possible for the students.

If you would like your gift to help the school in a specific way such as classrooms, teacher supplies, athletic or creative arts needs, you can make a designated gift to any of these areas as well.

Many reunions collect a group gift and then make one large donation to the school in honor of their class year.
