Pacelli Hall of Honor inductions take place at this event along with the revealing of Pacelli Teacher of the Year. It is a lovely evening celebrating and recognizing contributions that have made a meaningful difference in the world.

Acknowledging and celebrating success is what the evening is all about. This year alumni Dr. Tom Majerus (‘64) and Kevin Halbach (‘67), AIA,  will be recognized for their many personal and career successes. Both expressed appreciation for Pacelli and the impact a quality, Catholic education has had on their lives.


We will also be recognizing Gary and Diane Bickler along with Terry (‘64) and Connie Nelsen, grandparents to current Pacelli students and faithful supporters of Pacelli Catholic Schools. Their generosity and commitment has been astounding over the years.

Tickets can be reserved by calling Maddie at 507-437-8908 or sending an email to
