The Alumni Association facilitates communication to and among former students of St. Stephen Protomartyr School, from 1927 through the present, via mailings, emails, and an active Facebook community of more than 875 members.
The goal is to keep alumni apprised of parish and school events and to promote a sense of a larger parish community.
Alumni events include a biennial Mass and Mingle in January, as well as a booth at the annual parish picnic.
Operating expenses are covered by the sale of alumni t-shirts and donations. An annual Alumni Club campaign raises funds that support specific school activities.
The database of alumni is continuously maintained and currently contains more than 2,700 names.
