Central Catholic Love Stories, 2016

Michael Cronin '07 & Lauren Feroce '07 met in the Theatre Guild over 10 years ago. So when Mike proposed, he did it in the place that made the most sense –at Central Catholic High School’s Allan B. Rogers Memorial Theater when they returned for the 2014 spring musical! They celebrated their Raider marriage on September 5th at Turner Hill, Ipswich, MA. The wedding party included classmates Eric Quinn, Caitlyn Ward, Jonathan Machado (best man), Mark McComiskey, Nicole Rogers, Julie Fisher, Brian Dalias, Kristen Hall and Alicia Daly.


Central Catholic Love Stories, posted February 2013

2012 saw an abundance of Raider Weddings, with many couples sending in photos and one couple even coming back to where it all began for a photo shoot and a rendition of the Alma Mater!

Kristen Riley '05 & John Sullivan '05 returned to Central Catholic to take  photos on the day of their wedding (July 2012).

Central Catholic Love Stories, posted February 2012

Over the summer of 2011, at least two Central Catholic couples got married!

In July of 2011, Todd Beaudoin '02 and Kelli Carberry '02 were married with over 50 CCHS and Saint Mary High School alumni in attendance. Todd and Kelli first met at Camp Marist in the Fall of 1999 during Central Catholic Freshman Orientation. They are both children of Central Catholic alumni: John Beaudoin ’73 and Robert Carberry ’66. In addition, Todd’s mom is a Saint Mary’s graduate, Kathy Gaidis Beaudoin, Class of 1973. Todd and Kelli also have older siblings who are Raiders.

When Todd’s father gave a toast during the ceremony, he stated, “People always say there is something special about Central Catholic, but they just can’t put their finger on it. I say there are a lot of special things about Central Catholic, but the thing that sets Central apart are the people you meet while you are there.”

It’s safe to say that Sean Thomann '00 and Katy Dolan '01 would agree.

Sean and Katy also met at Central Catholic and were married in July 2011. Alumni in attendance gave a stirring rendition of the Central Catholic Alma Mater.

Congratulations to Todd and Kelli, Sean and Katy, and all Central Catholic couples!

Do you have your own Raider Love Story to share?
