Update 10: Tuesday, August 3rd

With all of the progress being made towards our new STEM Innovation Center, we are proud to announce its GRAND OPENING on Saturday, September 18th!! 🎉
Due to spacing, the ribbon-cutting ceremony will be by invitation only BUT it will be livestreamed to our Facebook page and website.
At 6:30 PM, ALL are welcomed to an in-person presentation that will highlight the future of Catholic High...and we have some BIG changes in store for this 90-plus-year-old building.
After the presentation, around 7 PM, student-led tours will be available to those who wish to explore the newly opened STEM Innovation Center.
And it wouldn't be a celebration without music and dancing! Stick around after the tours for The Confessionals, LCHS' Alumni Band, as they play hits from yesterday and today.

Update 8: July 20th

650 Juliette is filled with surprises and treasures. With the help of Warfel Construction, we have discovered an architectural feature that has been covered up since Lancaster Catholic added the third floor of Reilly Hall back in 1959. Any guesses as to what this historic motif means?

According to Lancaster Catholic President, Tim Hamer, the motif represents the ancient symbol of the trinity and God's omnipresence. 

Update 7: July 13th

While the classroom walls are still taking shape, the blocks that will support these walls for years to come are being lifted up from the ground through the corridor window that connects Reilly Hall to Old Main.

The STEM Innovation Center construction is officially underway! On the last day of school, Reilly Hall has been blocked off to teachers and students as the construction process begins to remove some of the old tile in the hallway.

After years of talking, fundraising, and designing, the top floor of Reilly Hall will start its transformation into a state-of-the-art STEM Innovation Center. This redesigned wing of Lancaster Catholic will serve as the headquarters for our Science and Math Departments for generations to come.
