St. Thomas Aquinas students raise money for Walk in Sister’s Shoes fund
St. Thomas Aquinas School added a unique aspect to the “Walk in Sister’s Shoes” Fund this year.
Margaret Vaughan, the seventh and eighth grade religion teacher, invited the entire school community to bring in their unwanted shoes to donate to Catholic Charities.
So many shoes came in – about 500 pairs – that Mrs. Vaughan’s classes took the idea one step further and held a “shoe store” after school each day for two weeks. Students could come buy a pair of shoes for one dollar along with a replacement pair.
The “store” collected $150 for the “Walk in Sister’s Shoes” Fund as well as the 500 pairs of shoes to donate to Catholic Charities.
Hutch’s Holy Cross Catholic School celebrating 50 years
HUTCHINSON – Holy Cross Catholic School, located at 2633 Independence Rd., will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with an open house from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 3.
The school started in the early 1960s when a decision was made to add a third parish to the growing community of Hutchinson. In 1962, Holy Cross Catholic School was officially opened with 131 students in grades 1 through 6. Its pastor was Father Vincent Brown and the principal was Sister Mary Clotilda Werner of the Dominican Sisters of Great Bend.
Holy Cross maintained an enrollment of 120 to 180 students for its first 25 years, but in 1993 with Fr. Victor Bieberle as pastor, the school began to grow. Pre-school was added in 1995, and an addition to the school was completed. Enrollment reached 290 in 2004.
In 2010, the decision was made to merge St. Teresa’s Grade School with Holy Cross at the Holy Cross site. At that time, enrollment was 369. Today, the pastor is Father Joseph Eckberg and the principal is Kevin Hedrick.
