HOMECOMING 2021 – looking forward to a SPIRITED event!
We look forward to cheering on the SPIRITS! Homecoming will be celebrated on Friday, September 24, 2021 at 7 PM. Alumni get in for free – check in at the Alumni Gate/Table.
GO BIG RED!!
Who’s house? CLETEHOUSE!
Annually in May our campus priest, Father G, hosts Vocation Day and welcomes alumni to speak throughout the day to our students. Paraclete graduates share their life career journey, and the inspiring talks greatly benefit the Paraclete student body. Please consider being a voice bringing motivational messages to your fellow Spirits.
The purpose of the day is to share how you see your career as a vocation. Your day will be spent inspiring the future leaders of tomorrow with your faith-filled wisdom. Each year we hope for a panel of caring Paraclete professionals. Lunch is provided.
Well it looks like reunion planning was put in a holding pattern, waiting for sunnier days! Once we get past the pandemic clouds, share your reunion plans with Janet Bower and the details will be shared on our this page and the Paraclete Facebook page. Contact Janet at JBower@ParacleteHS.org or (661) 943-3255 ext. 111. Cheers to next year… we are so ready, right?

Grads representing over 30 years of Spirits attended and the night was a smashing success, with standing room only available at Gino’s Restaurant in Palmdale. Brighton Bacchus led the way for this fabulous evening that included a delicious dinner, photo booth, DJ, and raffle prizes. His goal was to give back to Paraclete, and with business sponsors and raffle proceeds, he succeeded by giving $3500.00 to Paraclete to assist students who need help with their tuition. A job well done by Brighton and his committee

Recap from 2012…
Our 50th Anniversary Homecoming Football Game / Alumni Gathering
Oh what a night! We called for the Alumni to gather to celebrate Paraclete High School’s 50th Anniversary, and what a great turn out we experienced! At the Homecoming football game, Friday October 26, 2012, we welcomed back ASB Presidents and Spirits of the Year spanning 50 Spirit-filled years to be honored. The pure joy and elation felt by our honorees as they gathered on the track at A. V. College for the halftime festivities was noticed by all. Smiles, laughter and rapid reminiscing embraced the group of 60 ASB Presidents and Spirits of the Year. After the game, Alumni gathered in the St. Joseph Building to continue the recollection of good times. Our thanks go out to the many that traveled from out of state (Florida, Texas, Minnesota, Colorado, Arizona, and Nevada to name a few), and those that drove in from hours away. The night was too short, but enjoyed by all!
