Pay it Forward
It’s more than 4 years…it’s for life!
Each year, in an effort to “pay it forward,” our current STARS are challenged to raise money for their sisters. Proceeds from the raffle go to tuition assistance.
Live Purple. Give Gold.
Live Purple. Give Gold. is our annual day of giving celebrated on April 29, the Feast of our patroness, Saint Catherine of Siena.
As we reflect on Saint Catherine, her words in the Dialogue continue to resonate with importance, intellect, and bravery, offering enduring guidance and inspiration to young women navigating the complexities of our world.
This April 29, 2024, all contributions to Live Purple. Give Gold. will support our Annual Fund. Your generosity allows you to direct your donation to the area of greatest need, whether it be Drama, Athletics, Theology, Robotics, Music, or Campus Ministry.
Your support will also enable us to enhance security measures, provide transportation for extracurricular activities, retain talented teachers, and cover essential utilities. Together, let’s make a meaningful impact and uphold the legacy of Saint Catherine.
Purple, as all colors, is full of symbolism, both for the Church and for St. Catherine of Siena Academy. The Church takes on the color purple for Lent, for repentance and solemnity. The deep dark richness of purple invites us to consider the sacrifices Jesus suffered for us. For SCA, the purple pays tribute to the accent color of the legion of Bishops who serve the Pope. Purple has always been the color of royalty since historically purple dye was the most labor-intensive color to obtain. But we are not the royalty – Jesus is.
Gold, a color found on our SCA Crest, drawn from the papal flag, symbolizes our commitment to supporting SCA on our Annual Day of Giving. By contributing, you play a vital role in securing Catholic education for future generations. From St. Peter to the Pope, our mission remains steadfast: to educate our students in the profound beauty and enduring truths of the Catholic Faith.
The Annual Benefit Gala, A Night In Siena, is St. Catherine’s largest fundraising event and the showpiece of the school’s social calendar. A Night In Siena will include an impressive collection of silent and live auction items an elegant dinner, drinks, and time to socialize with friends. The Special Appeal is a paddle raise item during the live auction portion of the event to contribute to the funding of a special project for the academy.
We hope the evening, full of a variety of activities, provides a way for everyone to come together to celebrate our faith and the future of St. Catherine of Siena Academy.
We believe that athletics is an important part of fulfilling our mission and provide our STARS with the opportunity to put the values they learn in the classroom into action. Our cornerstones of leadership and sisterhood are solidified when the girls are on their teams. Your support of our athletic programs allows us to do just that!
