BACK-TO-SCHOOL BBQ

Please save the date - AUGUST 20, 2021, from 5-8:30 p.m. for our Inaugural Back-to-School BBQ celebration!  

Beginning at around 5 p.m., the Back-to-School BBQ will begin with a special outdoor Mass led by Fr. Rob and Fr. Andrew to kick off the school year for our students and parents and to bless our school community in our very own Falcon Stadium. Following Mass, a BBQ dinner will be served where staff, students and their families can join together to celebrate being able to gather and to kick off the school year on a positive note. The entertainment for the evening begins immediately after dinner as we will be treated to a live performance by the West Catholic Marching Band, cheers from our cheerleaders and a pep rally honoring all of our fall sport athletes and coaches. The Spirit Store will also be open throughout the event for you to grab some new WC gear.
