Tree of Lights & Christmas Concert
On December 5, 2019 the Main Lobby of UC was filled with members of the UC community for the annual Tree of Lights Ceremony. This is a reverent ceremony to remember loved ones lost this year, and in years past. Attendees pre-purchased paper doves designed by UC art students, bearing the names of passed friends and family members. Those names were read aloud during the ceremony, and families were then invited to take their doves home to place on their family trees. Following the ceremony, participants strolled to the auditorium for the Christmas concert, featuring musical performances by UC students. The evening concluded with snacks in the cafeteria. It was a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season!
Veteran's Day Ceremony
On Monday November 11, 2019, the student-led Hearts for Heroes Club hosted a Veteran’s Day Ceremony at school. The event is held annually and is open to anyone who feels patriotic and wants to celebrate America's veterans. The names of all 123 UC military alumni were included in the program and were displayed on a poster, which will be prominently located in the Main Lobby throughout the month of November. This year, we welcomed many UC Alumni Veterans home to their alma mater; it was a great day. The ceremony includes prayers and reflections about our service members. In addition, the wonderful voices of members of the UC Performing Arts Company led the attendees in a medley of the military anthems of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. If you were unable to attend the ceremony, it is available for viewing via UC Livestream on your computer or cell phone. https://livestream.com/unioncatholichs/events/8890943
There is no greater tribute to Union Catholic High School than when an alumna or alumnus chooses to send their child to their alma mater. Union Catholic takes immense pride in educating generations of UC families. To celebrate this special distinction, UC hosts an annual Legacy Breakfast.

In the 2019-2020 school year, UC boasts of 41 current Legacy families representing 46 current students. #TraditionMeetsTomorrow
