Badin High School will host a special Heritage Mass on Wednesday, Oct. 12, in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the opening of Badin.
“Mass Day at Badin each month is always a great day to enhance our faith experience,” said Kim Graham, Badin’s director of alumni relations, “and we’re really looking forward to this special recognition.
“We have invited numerous priests and nuns who previously worked at Badin,” Graham added, “and we would love to have Badin graduates here as well as we honor our 50-year legacy.”
Father Ed Pratt, Badin’s chaplain, will be the celebrant for the 10 a.m. all-school Mass, assisted by the various priests in attendance.
After Mass, former Hamilton City Manager Jack Kirsch will speak and a video highlighting Badin’s history will be shown.
Kirsch is a 1944 graduate of Hamilton Catholic High School, the all-boys predecessor to Badin, and subsequently helped raise money for the building of Badin High. Badin opened in September of 1966, the merger of Hamilton Catholic and all-girls Notre Dame high schools.
The Class of 2016 was Badin’s 50th graduating class, and the school is in the midst of a two-year celebration of its legacy.
“This will be a great opportunity to showcase our heritage to our current students,” Graham said, “and to recognize those who have helped make Badin such an outstanding educational choice in the community.”
Badin graduates who would like to attend the Mass are asked to RSVP to Graham at (513) 863-3993, ext. 128, to confirm your plans. There will be special seating for grads. There will be a reception in the Pfirman Family Activity Center at Badin following the Mass.
