The Legacy & Tradition Annual Fund



Thank you for amazing me. As your new President, I am proud of the strong community that I have witnessed since my arrival in July. I am energized by the loyal support of alumni, parents and friends and excited to shape Bishop Ward’s future generation of moral leaders.

Our diverse student body is a special gift. Having served all across our country, I know how unique it is to see such unity among students. They are so very grateful for the opportunity to be educated at Bishop Ward—preparing for college and deepening their faith in Christ.

Be proud. The education and experience you make possible at Bishop Ward is not ordinary. Just look!

Body: Our baseball team is the reigning 2014 4A State Champions! With ten state titles,
Bishop Ward’s dedicated team and coaches know the importance of hard work.

Mind: The Academy of Finance teaches a rigorous business curriculum while
connecting students to the real world; we are the only high school in Kansas
to offer this opportunity!

Soul: Students are living out their faith every day at Bishop Ward through
prayer, Mass, pilgrimages and volunteering; they are becoming moral leaders
in their parish and local communities.

Sometimes alumni and donors don’t realize just how important you are to the existence and quality of a school like Bishop Ward. All families do their part by making a financial sacrifice for Catholic education. We raise $1.5 million to keep tuition affordable for these 350 deserving students.

We need your help……………we simply could not do it without you!

Please consider a sacrificial gift that invests in our students and future leaders. Sending a gift today will ensure that our students have the opportunity to grow in their faith and prepare for college.

God blesses generosity. Please help me promise the students of Bishop Ward an education that will prepare them for success in life. On behalf of all the students, we THANK YOU!

May Our Lady of Mount Carmel continue to guide you. 

Rev. Thomas Schrader, O.Carm
