150th Anniversary Celebration and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

We celebrated the kick-off of our sesquicentennial on October 10, 2023, with a 150th Anniversary Celebration and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony! The event was held in front of PICE Arena, as we welcomed guests to participate in our shining Christ’s light throughout the River Region.

Book Release

With the 150th Anniversary Celebration and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, Montgomery Catholic commissioned and released a historical book: Faith. Virtue. Wisdom. A History of Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School, 1873-2023. This book was generously written by author, editor, and teacher Foster Dickson, as he details the history and evolution of Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School.
