In the Fall of 1967, coming from 18-South-Saint Louis, Missouri Roman Catholic parishes, 304-young men were enrolled as freshmen at St Mary's High School.  On June 5, 1971, in a commencement ceremony held at nearby Saint Anthony of Padua Parish Church, 268-students graduated.  Class of '71 remains among St Mary's largest. 

Our website was created in 2011 as a project initiated by the class reunion committee.  Headed by Frank Flesch and Rick LaGrotta, committee members included Phil Miceli, Steve Walsh, Edward Lehrmann, Mick Rea, Kevin Humphrey, Daniel Armbruster, Mike Dauphin, John Pipitone Bob Simokaitis, Rich Rutledge and some others.  Currenly the site is managed by Rick LaGrotta.
