Viator Voice: November 27, 2022
THE FIRST WEEK OF ADVENT
Come, Lord Jesus! Come! May this Advent be a time of deep renewal in my life, dear Lord. May it be a time in which I strive with all my heart to seek out Your gentle and profound voice. Give me the grace, dear Lord, to turn away from the many noises of the world that compete for my attention and to turn only to You and to all You wish to say. Come, Lord Jesus, come into my life more deeply during this Advent season.
Jesus, I trust in You.
The Annual St. Viator School Foundation Dinner
For 34 years the St. Viator School Foundation finances capital improvement projects through one fundraiser each year -- our Annual Dinner & Auction. Proceeds from past year's event financed student iPads, Covid improvements, which included all new water fountains, safety plexiglass throughout the campus, etc. The Foundation also financed our beautiful library!
Each year, the Foundation honors individuals who have demonstrated exceptional service to the St. Viator Community. On February 25, 2023, we proudly welcome new members to our Hall of Fame:
Laura & Rene Alcaraz
Rosy & Paul Hartz
Christa & Todd Morse
Thank you for your generosity and continued support!
History of the Foundation
The St. Viator School Foundation began in 1988 as the official fundraising arm of St. Viator Parish School. A group of dedicated parents worked together with parish, school, and diocesan administrators to create a new revenue source – the Foundation – to fund future capital improvement projects on campus.
These forward-thinking parents organized the Foundation to hold one annual fundraiser – a dinner and auction. Funds would not be expended on projects until the Foundation account reached a threshold amount, which took twelve years. In fact, most of the children of the founding parents had graduated before the first Foundation projects were sponsored.
These families believed in the value of Catholic education and the importance of the St. Viator community. We share their sentiments.
Donate and Volunteer Today!
As you can imagine It takes a lot of donated items as well as donated hours to successfully raise the money needed for our school. If you have items to donate or have contacts that you would like to share with the Foundation committee, please don't hesitate in contacting us. We are happy to pick up items or you can drop them off in the School or Parish Office.
If you are interested in serving on our committee, please join us in planning this wonderful event.
