HARVARD GRADUATION 2021
SENIOR CLASS GIFT

THE LASTING LEGACY OF THE HARVARD CLASS OF 2021

The Harvard Catholic Student Association Class of 2021 is continuing the tradition of presenting a Senior Class Gift to the Harvard Catholic Center in order to leave a lasting legacy to benefit future Harvard Catholic students.  

 

It has been decided that this year’s gift will be to renovate the St. Joseph Courtyard at the Catholic Center.  The pandemic has taught us that outdoor space is a necessity.  This outdoor courtyard will help to elevate the Catholic faith at Harvard by allowing students to gather for Bible studies, prayer, and small groups as well as serve as an area for receptions, barbecues, and other recreational events. 

 

Our hope is to have the courtyard completed in early May so we can dedicate and bless the space following Baccalaureate Mass (Sunday, May 2nd at 11am).  A plaque will display the following dedication: “The St. Joseph Courtyard Renovation: A Gift from the Class of 2021”.

Renovations will include artificial turf, paving and crushed stone as well as, new lighting and lattice fencing around the a/c units.  The project is being managed by Skinner Overlook Landscaping which is co-owned by John Hajjar, father of Carine, AB ’21.  

Our goal for the class of 2021 is to raise $46,000 for the courtyard makeover.  You can participate by making a gift of $100, $250, $500 or more towards the renovation.  The Harvard Catholic Center strives to make use of every space possible on our footprint of the campus and your participation is critical for us to achieve success in this matter.  With this being the Year of St. Joseph, this gift from the Class of 2021 will truly be something special.
