Whether your student graduated 30, 20, 10 years ago or just last year, we hope you have happy memories and great connections from your student’s time at Bishop Lynch High School. We’re pleased to begin a new initiative in bringing together BL Parents, beyond the high school years. Our goal is to provide past parents the opportunity to serve each other, our alumni children, and the school community. When you stay connected, you share your ongoing pride in our school, your gratitude for the education your student received and an appreciation for lasting friendships made throughout the years.

Our BL Choir is in Rome!!!
Congratulations to our Bishop Lynch Choir who will sing at the Vatican for Pope Francis at the Epiphany Mass on Friday, January 6th.
“The Vatican’s invitation to the choir to sing Epiphany Mass in January 2017, is an unique honor that will illuminate and strengthen our faith journey as individuals, as a choir, and as part of the Bishop Lynch community,” said Kathy Leos, BL Choir Director since 1983.
“The Bishop Lynch choir has provided students a wonderful opportunity to study and perform music that inspires and lifts up the soul,” Chris Rebuck, BL President said. “The invitation to sing for Pope Francis is a testament not only to Kathy, but also the mission of spiritual growth that Bishop Lynch hopes to inspire through all aspects of the student experience. I am thrilled for our students to be able to undertake such an impactful, spiritual pilgrimage as they lift their voices in prayer and praise in Rome!”
And on Monday, January 2nd, our own Cardinal Kevin Farrell surprised us with a visit as the Choir sang at Holy John Paul II's Tomb!!! What a blessing!

In Loving Memory
Over the Thanksgiving break the custom made St. Thomas Aquinas statue arrived from Italy and was placed in its permanent home at Bishop Lynch across from the Father Gambro Student Commons. The statue is a gift from the Crane family in remembrance of their son Jason '00†. Jason had a great love and devotion to St. Thomas Aquinas and his many works. St. Thomas Aquinas is an ultimate educator in the Catholic Church, a Doctor of the Church, and a Dominican saint. The works of Aquinas truly stand the test of time and are diligently studied today. We welcome another great Dominican educator to our hallways and very much appreciate the Cranes thoughtfulness and generosity in providing the Dominican presence of St. Thomas Aquinas in this grand way.

We need your help!! Come out and help us clean up our adopted shoreline at White Rock Lake. This is for the entire BL Community so the more we have out there the more we make an impact!! With the time change we now will meet at 4:30 - 5:30 pm on Monday night and then afterwards head over to The Lake House for a few beverages - our treat! To better explain the shoreline cleanup - our Alumni Association's Community Service Committee has adopted a small portion of White Rock Lake's shoreline. In this program, a group agrees to keep their adopted part litter-free. Please consider helping out our Alumni Association by joining us! Bring a friend, bring your family, - what a great way to reconnect and also help the community and environment!! We hope to see you - meet at our designated area - see map on the left for the exact location on W. Lawther Dr., just south of Mockingbird.
