My fellow Fallon HS/Holy Angel Collegiate Institute Alumni,

The Catholic Church has gone through some very challenging times, especially in the Diocese of Buffalo, amid all the sex abuse allegations.  Despite the challenges our community continues to face, 2018 was a very successful year regarding the monies our Alumni board raised for Catholic education and the BISON Scholarship Fund through our annual golf tournament, all-years reunion, and Hall of Fame dinner. To date, our contributions has exceeded over $125,000.    Our dedicated Alumni board members are hard at work preparing for our 2019 events.  After many years of having our all-years reunion at DiTondo’s Restaurant, its recent closing has caused us to change the venue to Fontana’s Grove.  Please visit our website: to get information on all our events and other news.  As the Oblate traditions continue, thank you for your continued support.  May God bless you!

The Alumni Association’s Catholic Education/Tuition Assistance program continues to need your assistance.  Several schools have closed over the years and many of those still operating are in peril and in need of your continued support.

The Alumni Association has strongly supported Catholic Education in Western New York since 2001. Our Alumni Association has donated over $125,000.00 in support of Catholic Education in the form of tuition assistance and/or providing needed equipment.

In 2018, we raised $11,700.00 from our three events: the annual golf tournament, all-years’ reunion, and the Hall of Fame dinner.  Our association with the BISON Scholarship Fund allows us to present 4 scholarships of $1375.00 to each of the following schools: Catholic Academy of West Buffalo, Our Lady of Black Rock School, St. Joseph’s University School, and Our Lady of Victory School.  In addition, direct financial assistance will be provided to:  Cardinal O’Hara High School, Holy Angels Church, Nativity Miguel Middle School, St. Mary’s High School, St. Mary’s School of Swormville, and Chesterton Academy of Buffalo.

Remember, if you are unable to attend any event in 2019, a tax deductible donation may be made to help support Catholic Education.

Please send your checks to BFHS/HACI Alumni Association, P.O. Box 25, Williamsville, NY 14231.

Thank you for your continued support of Catholic Education.
