Advancing Bishop Luers Through Philanthropy

A Message from Principal Jim Huth- "Thank You!"

Thank you parents, alumni and Bishop Luers family!

It is through your gracious giving and support that Bishop Luers may continue to provide a Christ-centered education to our students. As the old saying goes - it takes a village - and it truly does! It takes a village to educate young minds and encourage them to be all that God has called them to be. It also takes a village to grow and maintain our campus.

We have so many blessings at Bishop Luers. Two of our greatest blessings are the past parents and alumni who have laid the foundation for all that we have and for all that we are today. The ground work was provided so many years ago through planning and financial resources from our alumni and former parents. Join me in prayers of thanksgiving for all that our alumni and parents have done to ensure that our students have all they need to be successful at Bishop Luers!

Our “Luers Spirit” remains strong and each freshman class learns quickly that this spirit is a vital part of being a Knight. May God bless each and every Knight and continue the support from all for Bishop Luers Catholic High School.

Every gift has a recipient. It may be a young freshman or a senior athlete. It may be a student participating in their first Show Choir performance, a team of scholars competing in an academic super bowl meet or a Sodalitas service group serving meals at a soup kitchen. You may never get the chance to meet this student whose life your generous gift has impacted. “For a person will reap only what he sows . . .” (GAL. 6:7), your gift has touched the lives of our students at Bishop Luers High School.
