Turn on your speakers and you will here "Moments to Remember"

(Sorry, it will not play on a Mac)

Have any memories that you would like to share?  I enjoyed listening to the many memories that were shared at the reunion.  When we had the Holy Trinity Class of 1958 reunion, I collected some great stories that I posted on line: Memories Page for Class of 1958, visit and see how much fun we had.

I would be happy to do the same for the Josephinum class of 1961.  Just send your stories to me at: g.lopatka@comcast.net and I'll add them to the bottom of this page.
