2021 Annual Appeal

Dear Friends of Mater Christi School,

During my time at Mater Christi, I have enjoyed being a part of such a vibrant community; working with our faculty, staff and Parish to constantly improve our programming.  I have embraced the opportunity for change this pandemic has afforded us and look forward to all that the future holds for our students.

The school year began with all of our students returning to in-person learning.  We also welcomed several new faculty members, who each bring their experience and vision for our future.  In late August, with the encouragement of our Parish Administrator, Father Lehnert, our preschool program was moved from its original location into two of the classrooms in the Father Doyle Parish Center.  This move allows all of our students to now be housed in the same building.  We are excited to see our preschool program grow in this new location.


Your contributions to our Annual Appeal have been a constant blessing over the years.  Your generosity has strengthened our school’s resources and helped ensure that families that wish to provide a Catholic Education for their child may do so, regardless of their financial position. You provide for our present and future with your gifts.  

We continue to seek donations for these three areas:

  • The Endowment Fund, which will carry our school far into the future, providing an outstanding education for generations to come.
  • The Tuition Assistance Fund, which will allow us to provide a Catholic Education to families who wish to attend our school but are not able to pay the full cost of tuition.
  • Where most needed.

Over the last thirteen years this Appeal has raised more than $181,000 in donations from alumni, parishioners, parents and grandparents of students, as well as community leaders and supporters.  We are so thankful for this generous response.  

We are grateful for your past support and welcome new supporters, hoping that you will be inspired to donate to the 2021-2022 Annual Appeal.  If you would like to donate to this year’s Annual Appeal, please return the enclosed envelope to Mater Christi School.  You may also donate online at .
