St. Bernard to host 2013 Alumni Reunion

Alumni will gather on the campus of St. Bernard the weekend of June 27-30 to celebrate this year’s annual reunion.  Fr. Marcus Voss, Alumni Director, and his staff have prepared an exciting schedule of events.
“We have a big weekend planned and encourage all of our alumni to attend,” he said.  “The Alumni reunion is a great time for everyone to return to campus, renew friendships with their classmates,  and see how their support has enabled us to grow and expand our facilities.” 

Fred Frye of Little Rock Arkansas is heading up a golf tournament at Chesley Oaks Country Club located east of Cullman.  The weekend will kick off with a reception on Thursday evening,  June 27, where all golfers will receive their team assignments and invite monks to play with their team.   Tee time is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. Friday morning.
Also on Friday morning, a ladies outing to tour the city of Cullman will be held from 11:00 a.m. until 4 p.m.  This outing will include antique and specialty shopping as well as a dutch-treat lunch.
Friday evening the school will host a hoedown in the new Abbey Byre (Barn) which serves as the school theatre and assembly facility.  This unique facility is the latest addition to the campus.
Saturday is filled with various activities to include a 5K run/walk of the trails of St. Bernard scheduled to begin at 7 a.m.  The re-dedication and blessing of the “Abbey Byre for the Arts” will be at 10 a.m. followed by a town hall meeting at 11 a.m.
Soccer and Tennis matches will round out the afternoon at 2 p.m. at the soccer field and the Robert Blevins Tennis Courts.
