Congratulations to our Crusaders of the Class of 2017, who graduated on Tuesday from The National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown. On Monday night, they continued the great tradition of walking down 7th Street to St. Stanislaus Church for their Baccalaureate Mass. St. Stanislaus is our founding parish, where LC began as the Little Flower HS of Lansdale in 1949. This class received over $25 million in scholarships and grants to the universities/colleges of their choice.
For the eighth year in a row, we have honored the class celebrating their 50th anniversary with a Golden Graduate Diploma ceremony during our graduation at the Shrine. On Tuesday, we honored members of the Class of 1967. Thanks very much for joining us, proud of our Crusader legacy!
