San Francisco Treasure Celebrates its Centennial in 2009/2010

San Francisco, CA (June 15, 2009) – World-famous entertainers, NASA educators and mystery novel-writing nuns are just a few of the illustrious graduates of Star of the Sea School, the inner Richmond’s hidden treasure. Star of the Sea celebrates its Centennial during the 2009-2010 school year, capping 100 years of educating San Francisco’s children to be faith-filled, moral individuals. Principal Terry Hanley and the Centennial committee would like all Star of the Sea alumni to contact the school to participate in the festivities.

“Star alumni are part of a lifelong community, and we welcome them back with open arms,” said Terry Hanley, Principal. “I’m proud of the incredible alumni Star of the Sea has turned out, and look forward to many more years of success educating future leaders.”

The Centennial will celebrate the Star of the Sea grammar school, educating K-8 from 1909 – the present, and the Star of the Sea Academy, the high school which was open from 1910 – 1985. A Centennial Mass and school rededication will take place on September 6, 2009 at 12:15. The Mass, at Star of the Sea Church, will be celebrated by San Francisco Archbishop George Neiderauer.

All alumni are encouraged to contact the school to learn more about Centennial activities, volunteer to help organize events, or simply reconnect with the school. In addition to Mass on September 6th, the Centennial festivities will include an Alumni Reunion Weekend and Gala from April 30 to May 2, 2010.
