Alumnae, Dominican Sisters, families and friends of Queen of Peace High School gathered on Sunday, June 11, to celebrate the school’s 55 year legacy.   An alumnae choir and interpretive liturgical dancers led the procession as an alumna from each of the 55 years carried their respective yearbook into the gym. Father Tom Hurley, pastor of Old St. Patrick’s Church in Chicago, was the celebrant for the Mass. Father Hurley’s three sisters attended Queen of Peace High School and he talked about how he feels a close connection to Queen of Peace and how the Dominican influence was instrumental in his early life and played a role in his decision to join the priesthood. 

Following Mass all were welcome to enjoy light refreshments and tour the school.  Bulletin boards were covered in historic pictures and a DVD that captured the essence of Queen of Peace through the years played in the hallways. There were Pride Wear items, yearbooks and class rings available for purchase.
