75th Anniversary Celebration

On Saturday, October 15, 2016, St. Edward High School was host to alums from all decades. The 75th celebration began with tours of the school in the early afternoon, followed by Mass at St. Laurence Church in Elgin.  Bishop David J. Malloy concelebrated the Mass with Rev. Andrew Mulcahey and Rev. Andrew Deitz.  St. Laurence Parish was the original sponsoring parish when St. Edward High School was founded in 1941.  After Mass, alums, faculty and friends of St. Edward joined together at Moretti’s restaurant for an evening of food, music and festivity.




The Class of 1974 celebrated a 60th Birthday “Fiesta” Bash on Saturday, August 6th at Carmina’s restaurant in Elgin.  Alumni traveled from across the US to toast their birthday with their classmates.  More upcoming events are in the works.



The class of 1996 celebrated it’s 20 year reunion this past fall! Class members and their families attended the Homecoming football game on September 16th, 2016 then met on Saturday, September 17th, at Emmett’s Brewing Co. in Dundee.

We would like to once again congratulate all of the honorees and thank all of the generous supporters of our 2017 Tidal Wave “Lights, Camera, Auction” on April 8, 2017.
