“Prayer is nothing but that oneness with Christ. As scripture says in St. Paul, ‘I live no longer but Christ lives in me.’ Christ prays in me, Christ thinks in me, Christ looks through my eyes, Christ speaks through my words, Christ works with my hands, Christ walks with my feet, Christ loves with my heart.” St. Teresa of Calcutta

Dear Parents and Friends of Lourdes Central Catholic School, Looking back in our school’s history, it WAS the FABULOUS 50’s for the now present day Lourdes Central Catholic School. Just a couple of examples include the opening of our St. Benedict’s Campus in 1951, and in 1958, the announcement to build the current high school building, which ultimately opened in 1960. Since those Fabulous 50’s, TREMENDOUS events have occurred that have continued our school’s mission to assist parents in the development of their children by providing a Christ-centered environment which promotes spiritual, academic and social growth in order to prepare students for active participation in the Church, in their families and in society. With your attendance, along with those who have donated items and volunteered their time to this evening, the TREMENDOUS tradition of The Lourdes Event in keep tuition affordable for all families who want a Catholic education is taking place. With your financial support of both our silent and live auctions, you further give our students the TREMENDOUS opportunity to identify, develop and share their God-given talents and gifts, to take advantage of opportunities that come before them and ultimately allow them to be prepared for a Catholic life. As blessed members of the Lourdes Family, let’s make history, just as those individuals did in the 1950’s which propelled our school to what it is today. Let’s make tonight TREMENDOUS so in 50+ years from now, when those in the future celebrate our school’s mission, they will look back and say it was the TREMENDOUS 2010’s in the on -going history of your Lourdes Central Catholic School. Our Lady of Lourdes…Pray for Us! Curt H. Feilmeier Principal

2017 Special Projects On your table you will find envelopes with “projects” that are needed every year at Lourdes Central Catholic School. We pride ourselves in keeping our tuition low and affordable for all students in Southeast Nebraska. We find that, along with many families, rising costs make it hard to meet our budget needs. We ask that you prayerfully consider donating to one of these “line items.” If you cannot afford the full amount we would gladly accept any partial amount. You may place a check in the envelope or put your bid number on the outside envelope with your name. Runners will collect these envelopes at the end of the night.

Raffles and Fun! Last Table Standing At the beginning of dinner, you will have the option to purchase as a table a $100 raffle ticket ($10 per person at your table). During dinner we will start eliminating tables until we have a winner! There will be a 60/40 split of the coffer. The winning table takes home 60% of the total and 40% goes to the school. If all tables participate, you have a chance to win $2,100 for your table, that’s $210 per person!! If any table does not wish to participate - you can buy their raffle ticket! If you are the only person at your table who wants to participate, you pay the total table fee of $100. If your table wins - YOU get the pot. Good Luck!

Envelope Raffle Here’s a chance to win a lot for a little! 100 people will have the opportunity to purchase an envelope for $20 and take a chance on the win of the evening! If your envelope has a card inside reading “You’ve Won!” you may select one silent auction item of your choice! Class projects are excluded from this raffle. Just imagine the possibilities. All envelopes must be sold for this raffle to apply. Envelopes MUST NOT be opened until the auctioneer announces the end of the raffle at 7:00 p.m. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the door.

Emerald Jewelry Raffle You’ll be all set for St. Patrick’s day when you wear this beautiful man made emerald and diamond ring, earrings and pendant all in 14K gold settings – a stunning addition to your jewelry collection. The perfect gift for that someone special in your life! Only 100 raffle tickets will be sold for this jewelry set. The luck of the Irish could be on your side tonight so purchase your raffle tickets for only $20 each! Tickets available at the door.


Event Committees Each year so many of you give of your time and talents. We would like each of the recipients of this catalog to note just how many people it takes to prepare for this evening. Everyone listed here is a volunteer and devotes a year of their time to the Event! We truly thank each and every one of you for the part you play in the success of the Event and if we missed your name, please forgive us and know that your efforts do not go unnoticed!

“Prayer is nothing but that oneness with Christ. As scripture says in St. Paul, ‘I live no longer but Christ lives in me.’ Christ prays in me, Christ thinks in me, Christ looks through my eyes, Christ speaks through my words, Christ works with my hands, Christ walks with my feet, Christ loves with my heart.” St. Teresa of Calcutta
