On Saturday, May 16, St. Sebastian’s alumni from the classes ending in 5 and 0 gathered for the first, and hopefully last, Virtual Reunion in our School’s history. To begin the evening, Fr. Arens celebrated the Memorial Mass which was streamed to all attendees. Fred Daly ’70,P’05 read the list of Arrows in Heaven honoring all alumni from reunion classes who have passed away. Headmaster Burke welcomed all alumni back to St. Sebastian’s and spoke to the strong family bonds that exist in our alumni ranks. A short slideshow was shown featuring all father-son and brother-brother pairs of alumni who were celebrating their reunions together. Another video featuring photos from all of the reunion years brought back great memories and some classic tunes from each Reunion class' era. Director of Alumni Programs, Mike Melley P’18’22, assured alumni that another reunion will take place in person. The classes of 1945 through 1970 will be honored at the Golden Arrow Society Luncheon on October 10, 2020, and 1975-2015 will celebrate their reunion next May. Following the prepared program, alumni then joined Zoom breakout sessions by class year. While gathering virtually was no substitute for a true reunion, St. Sebastian’s alumni made the best of it, with the Class of 2000 breakout session lasting well into the night.
