To everyone that has helped to write each chapter of St. John Neumann Catholic School’s beloved story, and those that are a part of shaping its bright future today ... Our story continues ...
We hope to count you among the 320 guests we will host for dinner & drinks, silent & live auctions, raffles, and more! Curt Copeland, host of the morning show on NOW 96.3, will be our emcee for the night. His undying passion for our area is well known, from cheering on the Cardinals and Blues to playing music, including his own, throughout the region. Curt has also gained notoriety for his work with the Gateway Grizzlies. His generous spirit for giving back to communities will engage you and his comedic, fun side will entertain.
St. John Neumann Catholic School was built in 1978 as a parish school for the central Metro-East area. It was founded under the direction and vision of Bishop Joseph McNicholas. His dedication to Catholic education has led to a school that is now fully networked with a state-of-the-art computer lab, library, music room, science lab, full size gymnasium, and dedicated chapel for daily prayer.
The school’s modest beginning consisted of just five classrooms, K through fourth grades. Under the Bishop’s careful direction, a plan of expansion followed by adding an additional classroom each year until the desired goal of eight grades was achieved. St. John Neumann graduated its first class of bright, disciplined, well-educated students in 1983.
The Quilligan Center was added in 1994 in honor of Father Maurice Quilligan, of Mother of Perpetual Help.
As we enjoy our 37th year in existence, there has never been a better time to be a Crusader! Thank you for joining us for our much anticipated event of the year as we honor our past, treasure our present, & shape our future.
