Join us in celebrating all our classes … especially our honored reunion classes ending in 0 and 5, 1 and 6, and 2 and 7.

Relive ... Remember ... Reconnect

Save the Dates:  The Oak Knoll Alumnae/I Reunion 2022 … is Back … and in Person! 

While we have all faced many challenges and changes in our personal and professional lives, we are hoping that this coming April we can focus on a spring renewal of hope and faith. To that end, we want to celebrate each of you at your Oak Knoll home! 

This year, we are making up for lost time and bringing together a colossal gathering of Holy Child women—all of you–our pearls of great price!   

This reunion is for all our classes ending in 0 and 5, 1 and 6, and 2 and 7.  We plan on honoring our most esteemed fiftieth reunion classes, the Classes of 1970, 1971, and 1972.  We have missed all of you and marking these special milestones.  We promise to make this reunion a joyous and memorable celebration. 

In light of Covid protocols, we will be taking necessary precautions to ensure a safe weekend for all.  While we have no crystal ball to tell us what will be happening in April, we are cautiously optimistic that we can plan the Reunion Weekend for you.  It is surely a leap of faith but, it is our fervent wish that we can carry on in our best Holy Child tradition!
