Norphan's Christmas Gift to Sacred Heart Home

Once again, thank you to everyone who has contributed to "our" cause. The benefits of your generosity is our ability to help North Catholic Alumnists who are making a difference in our community. One of the unsung hero's of North Catholic has been Fr. Neil Kilty. Through thick and thin, Fr. Kilty has been there for everyone, and I mean everyone.  It is our great pleasure to present our donation to the Sacred Heart Free Home for Incurable Cancer. Pictured below is Norphan, Mr. Mike McBride, Class of 78 '81, with the legend, Fr. Neil Kilty.

Everyone is invited to stop in, say hello and Merry Christmas! Friendship, food and gear sales will be happening into the early evening. Come one, come all.


Thanks to everyone who have helped the Norphan's cause to help area children and families representative of North Catholic.  On Thursday, December 4th, Jason Marquess, Class of '67 Norphan presented the Veteran's Multi-Service Center in Philadelphia a contribution to help its cause. VMC exists solely to "serve those who served" our country. It is the only area not-for-profit organization that provides comprehensive resources to all Veterans in need. This group serves 2,500 local veterans each year, providing everything from food and housing to health care and job retraining.  Seen below on the left is Harry Lincoln Strehle, NC Class of '98 and next to him is Jack O'Neil, NC Class of '66. It is worthwhile to visit them if you get a chance. It is located at 213 N. 4th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106
