Congratulations to the BCHS football team on becoming the 2020 3A State Football Champions, with a 42-14 victory over Danville on Nov. 28. This is a record-breaking 15th state championship title for BCHS!
A message from Kelly Stuhldreher
We have a lot to be grateful for in the Bishop Chatard community. We are reminded of the important role Bishop Chatard plays in the lives of each of our students, alumni, staff, faculty and all the lives they touch. This year especially, we take time to be thankful of our ever supportive alumni and the Trojan spirit that they have expressed. From all of us here at Bishop Chatard High School, we wish you and your families a happy, healthy and peaceful holiday season.

Merry Christmas!
Kelly Stuhldreher
Coordinator of Special Events & Alumni
Thank you for donating!
Thank you to all of those who donated to the Blood Drive at Christ the King in honor of Jack Shockley on Sunday, Nov. 29. There was an overwhelming response from the BCHS community and 89 pints of blood were collected in honor of Jack. Christ the King plans to make this an annual event.
Christmas on Crittenden
BCHS hosted its annual Christmas on Crittenden event on Friday, Dec. 4. This year's all-outdoor event looked a little different but still drew many cheerful BC community members! Over 500 kids and their families made their way through the drive-thru and got their chance to see Santa. Thank you to all who participated! Check out some pictures below from the event!

Medical Professionals on the Front Lines
Bishop Chatard alumni are among those working on the front lines in hospitals and health care facilities caring for COVID-19 patients, and we are very proud of and grateful for the work you are doing. In preparation for our next (winter) magazine, we would like to talk with a few of you about your experiences and how this pandemic has impacted your life and work. 

If you are willing to share your thoughts for an upcoming magazine story, please email Bishop Chatard Director of Marketing & Communication Kelly Lucas at klucas@bishopchatard.org by December 22. In the email, please include your name, where you work and your job title, your year of graduation from BCHS and the best way to contact you. 
Did you find joy in 2020? Share it with BC!
When the world rang in 2020, nobody was expecting the year that we’ve experienced. While many events have been cancelled and we have experienced loss, collectively celebrating the good moments has buoyed our spirits.

In the Winter issue of Bishop Chatard’s Trojans Today magazine, we will highlight the things that have brought us joy. This can be as life-changing as a wedding or new baby, or it can be as simple as having the time to reconnect with an old friend, learning a new skill, being home to see your child take his first steps or completing a project that has lingered on your to-do list.

We are asking you, in 25 words or less, to tell us what brought you joy in 2020. If you have a photo that you can include, please do it! The deadline to submit is Thursday, Dec. 31, 2020. We’ll share the good times as we all get through this pandemic together. 
Join BCHS Campus Ministry as we "Journey to Bethlehem!"
Each day throughout the season, Campus Ministry will share a reflection by Bishop Chatard students and staff based on the daily Scripture readings. As part of our ongoing commitment to our mission, we welcome you to share in the prayer of our school community as we joyfully await the birth of Christ. Please contact Steven Patzke at spatzke@bishopchatard.org with any questions.

Trojans Helping Trojans
Bishop Chatard is grateful for the support of so many! Due to COVID-19 restrictions, lending some Trojan support for these local businesses is needed. Gift cards to local business make great stocking stuffers and skip the stress of getting dinner on the table.
