It started off as a crazy idea, and turned into an absolutely incredible reality. Rock the Lawn 2016 was a HUGE success! 1,600 people came back to Holy Angels, many saying it was the first time they had been back on the Lawn since graduation. The night started off with mass in the chapel. Father James Adams ’94 and Father Mike Tix celebrated mass, and the chapel was packed. After the short AHA history presentation, Mick Sterling and the Superfriends of Soul started off the concert. Alum Paul Peterson ‘83 came back to his alma mater, and he and his band put on a performance everyone will remember. The highlight for many was Paul’s rendition of Prince’s Purple Rain.
This was the biggest alumni event in school history. Young and old came back to say hi to friends…the earliest “Angie” that came back was from the Class of 1953. The CSJs came back as well, reading and greeting people at mass.
What a fantastic event! Thanks for everyone who came back to Holy Angels for Rock the Lawn.
