FOOTBALL KICK-OFF BBQ (held on August 10, 2019)

Wow! What a great night our first Football Kick-off BBQ was! Thank you to all who made the evening such a success.

Coach Dean Herrington and the team look forward to making this fun and tasty event kicking off the football season an annual affair! To find out how you can help the Spirits for next year’s event, please contact Kristen Cunningham at or (818) 970-7683. Go Spirits! 



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.

If you would like to participate email Father G at

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!
