Light Their Way Tuition Assistance

Light Their Way Gala

Thank you to all who contributed to the success of this year’s Light Their Way gala.  It was beautiful and festive event.  Fr. Mike Schmitz delivered a powerful challenge: strive for nothing less than sainthood; live the life you were meant to live. He challenged parents to place greatest emphasis on spiritual formation and to partner with a strong Catholic school in the raising of children.

Thank you, Nancie Voss, who served as lead decorator, along with Denise Faust, Kristi Szpotek, Joan Holper, Alex Fitzsimmons, Deanne Wessel, Shahla Braun, Sue Argiro, Cyd (Grandma!) Amiot, Kathy McCarthy, Amy Vagle, and others who transformed the social hall and atrium into a beautiful venue. 

Thank you Paul Mahoney, Todd Scheel, and Mike Nystrom for preparing a delicious meal and to Kowalski’s for the delightful champagne cake. Thank you to all the adult and student servers for their dedication to serving our guests.

Paul Loomis artfully captured the difference of a Catholic education in this year’s feature video. A full event photo album is also available for viewing.

Thank you to our event sponsors—please view list to the right and be sure to patronize and thank these generous sponsors.

At the time of printing, $70,000 net has been raised to support families needing tuition assistance. We are so grateful! This meets about 1/3 the total need. If you have not yet been able to make a gift, please consider adopting a student for a year ($5,000); 1/2 year ($2,500); 1/4 year ($1,250); or any amount toward the general tuition assistance fund.  For more information, please contact SCCS Development Director, Camille Kiolbasa, or 651.439.5581 x310, or visit

Approximately 1/4 of our families need some level of assistance. On behalf of these families, we extend our most sincere appreciation. 

Thank you to our event sponsors!
