Cornerstone Day – Tuesday, April 25th 2023
The Curley Family celebrates the ceremonial laying and blessing of the cornerstone on April 17, 1962 by Archbishop Lawrence Shehan. Today is an opportunity to share a little of Curley’s history and to recognize some of those who are “cornerstones” of the school.
The day consists of a special Mass to pray for the faculty, staff and students, alumni and former faculty, and the parents of current students and alumni. Certain groups and individuals are honored according to the following categories: Mission Support, Scholarship Donors, Dedicated Volunteers, Unsung Alumnus, Long Serving Faculty/Staff.

Cornerstone Day is also our annual day of giving which sets the focus toward the future to enable more students to benefit from the education and brotherhood of Curley, and also to allow more “cornerstones” to emerge.
Combining the two foci of Cornerstone Day, looking to the past and to the future, students, faculty, staff and parents have the opportunity to make a gift to honor those who make Curley a special place.
Prior to Cornerstone Day, students, faculty and staff had the opportunity to nominate someone who makes Curley a special place. Here is a photo of those nominated and Click HERE to read the 2022 Cornerstone Day Nominations
