Boston area alumni spanning the decades from the '70s to the '10s gathered together at Doyles Café in Jamaica Plain for reconnections, networking and Crusader fun. Event Hosts, Keith Sullivan '83 and Bob Harkins '84 joined President Paul G. Geise and the Advancement Office in welcoming the alumni to this regional reception/fundraiser. Proceeds from the reception went to the Holy Cross High School Annual Fund.
"Gathering with our alumni at Historic Doyle's was a real treat," said President Geise. "The Holy Cross spirit was fully present. Memorable stories abounded! What continues to impress me in the abiding love and family feel graduates still have for their Alma Mater and for each other. Blessed Fr. Moreau's sentiment was crystal clear: "How we educate the mind will change with the times; how we cultivate the heart is and will remain timeless."
"This was a great chance to share our Holy Cross stories and reminisce about the experiences that we had on Oronoke Road," said Mike Phelan '89, Director of Alumni and Special Events. "The atmosphere was energetic and inspiring. It bled green and gold, and the bonds that we saw reinforced our belief in the Holy Cross experience. We are all so fortunate to be part of the Crusader family."
