Calling all Hoboken Catholic School Alumni!
For the better part of the last century, Hoboken was home to six Catholic elementary schools and one Catholic high school. Over the years as enrollment declined and schools closed, the parishes of Hoboken and Weehawken co-sponsored the one remaining Catholic elementary school, initially called Pope John Paul Academy, now called Hoboken Catholic Academy. Today, HCA, housed in the old St. Ann School building, is a thriving school with an enrollment of just under 350 students. The proud tradition of Catholic education in Hoboken continues at this Pre-K3 to grade 8 school.
That tradition needs to be celebrated! To do so the folks at Hoboken Catholic are putting together a committee with representatives from each parish and alumni from each parish school and Hoboken Catholic! Using the Hoboken Catholic Academy website, we hope to create a Hoboken Catholic School alumni data base, post pictures from all of the parish schools and provide alumni an opportunity to reconnect with friends from the past. It will also allow folks to see all the great things happening at Hoboken’s Catholic School today.
Thousands of students have graced the halls of our schools over the years and many have gone on to do great things. The eventual goal of the committee will be to recognize outstanding alumni and benefactors from each of the parishes who have made their mark in the world at an annual gala each year. Individuals who are recognized will be included on a “Wall of Honor” at the school.
If anyone would like to be part of the committee or has pictures, memory books or other memorabilia from their Catholic school days that they would like to have posted on the HCA website, they should contact the school at (201) 963-9535 or online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
