The school, which was founded as Catholic Central High School on Sept. 16, 1921, plans to involve students and alumni alike in beginning this new tradition as BNI prepares for its Centennial Celebration in 2021

Alumni, students and current families are invited to join the BNI family for Mass at either 9:30 a.m. or 6:30 p.m.  The 9:30 a.m. all-school Mass will be celebrated by the Rev. David Tyson  C.S.C., a 1966 Bishop Noll graduate and current president of Holy Cross College in Notre Dame, Ind. The evening Mass will be celebrated at 6:30 p.m. by Msgr. Joseph Semancik, Catholic Central Class of 1945.

The day will also include special live streaming of interviews, the revealing of the Centennial theme and new logo and other content to celebrate the school’s rich history in Northwest Indiana. Video content will be available at and via social media starting at 9 a.m. Monday. 

Alumni are invited to attend either Mass. Though walk-ins will be welcome, those who plan to attend are asked to email with the number of guests and time they would like to attend.
