A great time had at Reunion 2022!
Thank you to everyone who attended Reunion 2022 on Saturday, June 4!

It was wonderful to see so many alumni and friends "en bleu" and to celebrate our 2022 Reunion classes, including the 50th Anniversary Class of 1972 (pictured), the Golden Alumni Society and the 2022 Alumni Achievement Award Recipients: Father Wayne E. Killian ’73 (posthumous), James Dever Bennett, Esq. ’82, and Edward Gallagher III M’10, Ed.D.

Photos from the event are now available on Facebook and on Flickr.

Save the date for Reunion Weekend 2023 (celebrating classes ending in “3” and ‘8”), which will now be held in conjunction with Commencement, on Saturday, May 20.
Holy Family University Launches Asked & Answered Podcast with President Anne Prisco
Holy Family University has launched a new podcast, Asked & Answered with Dr. Anne Prisco, President of Holy Family University. In Asked & Answered, Dr. Prisco gets to know the most influential leaders in Philadelphia, including sharing the stories of Holy Family faculty and alumni who are making major impacts in their communities. Asked & Answered is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, iHeart Radio, and the Podbean App.

“Holy Family’s values are centered on our shared humanity and collective responsibility to one another, our neighbors, and our communities,” said Dr. Prisco. “In Asked & Answered, I introduce listeners to a host of community leaders to share the wonderful work that they do and to engage in fascinating conversations designed to broaden our collective understanding of the impact of leadership.”

The Asked & Answered podcast launches with three episodes:

Did you know that Holy Family's fiscal year ends on June 30? Our goal this year is to increase alumni donor participation to the Blue & White Fund. We are currently 86% to our goal. We only need slightly over 70 donors!

If you haven't already made your gift this year, we hope you will join us in supporting current student financial aid at a level that is meaningful to you. Gifts of all sizes make an immediate impact and we thank you in advance for your generosity!
