Reunion planned for Pueblo Catholic High Class of ‘65

By Kathy Cribari Beck
One of the last graduating classes of Pueblo Catholic High School—the iconic class of 1965—celebrates its 50th reunion this fall, Sept. 11 to 13, some 40 years since all Pueblo’s Catholic schools closed.

These PCH students, who graduated six years before the real “last day of school,” in 1971, were saddened then. In 1977, however, they would enjoy the legacy of a television series, “What Really Happened to the Class of 65?”

The upcoming 50th reunion will begin with a Friday evening social at Pueblo’s historic Union Depot, said Joe Novak, reunion chairman. “Saturday afternoon we will be privileged to participate in a liturgy led by Bishop Stephen Berg. There we will celebrate our Catholicity,” Novak said, “our most important common bond.”

  The reunion will close with a banquet at Pueblo Community College, he concluded, nostalgically. “That is the same building where we enjoyed our Junior-Senior Prom, 50 years ago.”
