Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

Saint Xavier, Dear

St. Xavier, dear, we'll think of thee
When classroom days have passed away
Those happy days to us will be
A bond of love when far away.


St. Xavier, dear, St. Xavier, dear
Your colors rare of blue and white
Will always be as dear to me
As on this very happy night.
Your daughters, too, are always true
Oh, Alma Mater fair
A hymn of praise to you we raise
For you our love declare.

We love thy halls, St. Xavier, dear
The friends we made there long ago
They come again in vision clear
To grace the scenes we used to know.

Class of 1965

Who Are They?

The one in the middle looks like Sister Mary Grace to me and the nun smiling big looks like Sister Mary Josephus who taught us in the 3rd grade.  Do you have a clue who they are? Leave a comment if you do.

Happy Easter Classmates!

An Easter Prayer
God, give us eyes to see

the beauty of the Spring,
And to behold Your majesty
in every living thing -

And may we see in lacy leaves

and every budding flower
The Hand that rules the universe
with gentleness and power -

And may this Easter grandeur

that Spring lavishly imparts
Awaken faded flowers of faith
lying dormant in our hearts,

And give us ears to hear, dear God,

the Springtime song of birds
With messages more meaningful
than man's often empty words

Telling harried human beings

who are lost in dark despair -
'Be like us and do not worry
for God has you in His care.

In Jesus Name, Amen
