- During Crisis, COS Supports Students and Families
The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on school families has been a constant worry for Principal Bridget Kramer. At Community of Saints, over 65% of families qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch, one of the highest rates for Catholic schools in the archdiocese, putting them at greatest risk during the economic downturn. What follows is a look at how the school responded to the crisis.
- Fr. Steve’s Column: “These last months have taught me that flexibility is the name of the game and the lead article of this issue demonstrates that our faculty and students are up to the challenge and succeeding.”
- Margaret Pohl’s Estate Gift Supports COS Students

- Remembering Jerry Sexton ’44, Founder of A&F&F
From the Editor: I met Jerry Sexton for the first time when he came to my house in 2007 and asked me to be the editor for a newsletter he wanted to publish. He already had a name for it, “The Good News.” I was dubious — he was insistent. The newsletter was part of a bigger plan he had to support St. Matthew’s School. Since that meeting 13 years ago, over $2 million has been raised for tuition assistance, first at St. Matt’s, now at COS. Jerry passed away on March 21 and to honor him, I want to share the story of how this whole Alums & Friends & Families thing got started, because Jerry was the one who made it happen.
- Congratulations to the COS Class of 2016 as They Graduate High School
Graduation ceremonies are on hold but we still want to recognize the COS class of 2016 as they graduate high school. In talking with the four students featured here, something really stood out. They all described how tight-knit their COS class was and how those friends continue to be among their most treasured relationships today, which is pretty special.
