Donor Stories

In 1918, Cathedral’s doors welcomed her first class of 90 students. Since then, more than 14,000 alumni have graduated and profoundly impacted the communities in which they live – while keeping Cathedral close to their hearts. We are fortunate that many of Cathedral’s alumni, current and past parents and grandparents, faculty, staff, board members, and other friends and supporters have started their own Cathedral legacy by giving their time, prayer, and treasure.

As we seek to build on our 100 year legacy, we have big plans to further our mission by investing in multiple strategic enhancements and capital projects. In addition to creating plans to invest in the future success of Cathedral, we are also taking the time to look back and celebrate our many accomplishments, traditions, and families.

The Stephens Family

Our Cathedral story… We see Cathedral as a longstanding family tradition. Joanie, Jack, and Eddie first began attending Cathedral events when they were babies – so the campus felt like home by the time they enrolled.
