The Class of 1963 with Thomas Satham-Fissette '14

We are Cathedral: Read how the Class of 1963 came together to support a Cathedral student

Last fall, the Class of 1963 did something that seemed to them to be very simple but had extraordinary impact on a student for life. They gave back to the school community which had cared for them, taught them, and instilled them with lifelong values.

Following the class’ 50th reunion last October, members of the reunion committee made several, impactful return visits to our school. Seeing the school in action and meeting today’s students inspired them. “The positive support by faculty and staff has not changed at all our shared alma mater. The spirit of belonging and camaraderie is still quite evident.” Despite the years passed since their own time at Cathedral, they were struck with how much they had in common with today’s students.

Impressed in particular by Thomas Satham-Fissette, class of 2014 president and their tour guide, they decided to give him a scholarship. They wanted to help give a student today the same opportunity they had been given by Cathedral.

Tuition only covers 14% of Cathedral’s cost in providing a rigorous college preparatory education which has produced a 100% graduation and college acceptance rate for the last 11 years straight. Cathedral relies on generosity from alumni and donors to help make a quality Catholic education accessible to Boston’s youth.

Thomas graduated in May and is now well on his way to success in college.

If our alumni community came together like the class of 1963 reunion committee, think of how many Cathedral scholars’ lives we could directly impact. Your gift helps us continue our shared 88 year legacy by preparing today’s students for college and leadership for life.
