Bishop Fallon High School

Holy Angels Collegiate Institute

 Alumni Association




Dear Bishop Fallon HS/Holy Angel Collegiate Institute Alumni,

2016 was quite a year for the BFHS/HACI Alumni Association.  Our 13th annual golf tournament, held in June, had a record breaking year in money raised.  The all-years’ reunion, held in August, was the best attended in years.  Our annual Hall of Fame dinner, held in October, had another successful year honoring the Class of 2016 inductees.  Other highlights included our Alumni Association winning the Michael P. Kirwan “Shining Light” award at the Nativity Miguel School Awards dinner in May, for contributions we have made to the school over the years.  In June, several of our board members, including Larry McGowan (HOF Class of 2015 inductee) and I had the distinct pleasure of spending time with Fr. Billy Morell, OMI, Executive Director of the Oblate Missionary Society, Inc., as he spoke to us about the direction the Oblates are taking all over the world.   Most recently, in June, I attended the annual Diocese of Buffalo Catholic Education dinner, as our Alumni Association maintains its support to Catholic Education in WNY.  With your continued support to our events, the Oblate traditions will persevere.

The Bishop Fallon High School/Holy Angels Collegiate Institute (BFHS/HACI) Alumni Association has strongly supported Catholic Education in Western New York since 2001.            

The Alumni Association’s Catholic Education/Tuition Assistance program continues to need your support.  Several schools have closed over the years and those still operating are in need of continued financial support.  This support comes in the way of tuition assistance and/or providing for needed equipment for education.

Our Alumni Association has donated almost $ 98,000.00  in support of Catholic Education.   In 2016, we raised $ 10,980 from our three events.  Our continued association with the BISON Scholarship Fund, along with additional monies from them, will allow us to present 5 scholarships of  $ 1320.00  to each to the following schools: Catholic Academy of West Buffalo, Our Lady of Black Rock School, St. Joseph’s University School,  Notre Dame Academy, and Mary Queen of Angels School.  In addition, the following will receive direct financial assistance from our Association:  Cardinal O’Hara High School, Holy Angels Church, Nativity Miguel Middle School, St. Mary’s High School, and Chesterton Academy of Buffalo.

Remember, if you are unable to attend any of our events in 2017, 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 for Catholic Education.
