Over the last 18 months, I have been reminded again and again how fortunate all of us at BC High are to have a strong foundation upon which we rely. This bedrock is formed by many things – our faith, our vibrant academic program in the 500-year-old Jesuit tradition, and our shared vision for our boys to become contemplatives in action.
But as we share this annual report with you, what inspires me most is the commitment of so many of our alumni, parents, friends, families, and faculty and staff whose gifts make our school stronger. Unprecedented times require unprecedented support, and when we called – you answered. As the economic impact of COVID-19 continued, you made gifts to help provide food, academic necessities, transportation, and essential needs to more than one hundred of our young men. Most importantly, because of your tremendous philanthropic support, in 2021-2022 we were able to provide more than $500,000 in additional financial aid to families impacted by the pandemic, keeping more than 70 boys enrolled at BC High.
You stepped up not only for our students, but for each other as well. Flocking to businesses and restaurants owned by BC High families, participating in our virtual events, and tuning in to Livestream Mass each week from Loyola Chapel. We drew closer as a community than ever before and remained strong in the face of one of the biggest global challenges we are ever likely to experience.
I have great hopes that in 2022 we gather together again in person to celebrate this incredible community. Until then, I offer my heartfelt thanks – for your gifts, your loyalty, and your commitment to our shared mission.
