On October 4, 1909, St. Matthias School opened its doors to 150 students and 4 teachers, including Father Nicholas Wagner, the first pastor. Since graduating its first class in 1912, St. Matthias School has provided a Catholic education to close to 10,000 children. Whether you graduated in the past decade, or more than half a century ago, we hope that the years have been filled with many blessings made possible through the grace of God, your faith, and the foundations established by your parents and teachers.
No matter your current age, you treasure memories of classmates and teachers who shared in your educational journey. Today, St. Matthias is as vibrant as ever, sending forth graduates to embrace the world and share their talents. We are always interested in staying connected to our alumni. Whether it’s a friendly email, organizing an event, or stopping by to walk "the halls" and share your memories, we love to hear from you.
An alumni association exists to sponsor activities, which foster and nurture a climate of unity and loyalty. It is a living link among past, present, and future generations of students, and provides exciting opportunities to share life’s lessons and successes, while advancing the school’s mission. St. Matthias alumni are testimony to the value of Catholic education, even in today’s challenging world.
Staying in touch with you is important to us. Please register and provide your contact information, including your email address.
