The North Platte Catholic Schools Endowment-Trust, Inc. will host a reception Monday to honor those who have been memorialized in the Book of Memories. The Book of Memories is a program that pays tribute to those who have passed away by designating memorial funds or special gifts to the North Platte Catholic Schools.
The names inscribed in the Endowment’s Book of Memories are remembered each month at Masses at each of North Platte’s Catholic Churches.
Endowment Director Wendy Dodson says that memorial funds are an important piece of fundraising for North Platte’s Catholic Schools.
“We are extremely grateful to those who have chosen to honor their loved ones by leaving a legacy for our schools and students,” she said.
To pay special tribute, a coffee and donut reception will be held in the gathering area at St. Pat’s Church following the 9 a.m. service on Monday.
Anyone is welcome to join in the reception, view the Book of Memories, and learn more about the memorial program and the North Platte Catholic Schools. Special recognition will be given to the families and friends of those included in the Book of Memories.
