St. Mary Cathedral School Alumni



Welcome back St. Mary Alumni!  We are so glad you are here!

It’s SO important to have a vibrant Alumni organization for educational, professional and social purposes, and to involve the alumni in the advancement of the mission and goals of St. Mary Cathedral School. Great things have been happening in our school and there is so much we want to share!


Hello fellow Snowbird!

We are reaching out to our alumni who know more than anyone the benefits of a Catholic education. The education received at St. Mary Cathedral School is more than just academics, it is the participation in extracurricular activities like the arts, music and athletics. All of these aspects that make students well rounded individuals are often the ones most at jeopardy for funding cuts.

As you  may or may not know, our Athletics program is currently operating in the red year after year. The good news is we have a plan in place, that with your help, will help make our Athletic program sustainable for years to come. With new fundraising ideas and a tiered sponsorship program, we will be able to keep St. Mary Athletics running just like it always has been. (Read this attachment to find out more details!)

As an Alumni or parent of St. Mary Cathedral School, I know you understand the importance that Athletics plays in a student’s life. One way or another, be it participating in the sport itself or cheering on fellow classmates from the bleachers, there is no doubt that athletics affects each student during their high school years.

Please consider purchasing one of the Tiered Sponsorship Packages! No matter the level, your support as an alumni will mean more than a monetary donation. We want to be able to say that 75% of our alumni support our current students and share that stat proudly with new and prospective families.

If you would like to support, please fill out the form above and send to Shannon O'Connor at or mail to St. Mary Cathedral Attn: Development, 606 N Ohio Ave, Gaylord, MI 49735.  Questions? Call (989) 705-3569.
