Don’t throw away your children’s Halloween
costumes of Star Wars characters!
At our upcoming July 3rd Patriotic Concert,
the Verdi Band will be performing marches
from the Star War movies.
As an added feature, we would like to have
children in costume, to come out and parade
for the audience.
The concert is on Tuesday night, July 3, 2018
at 7pm on our St. Bede back lawn.
The children’s part would be in the first half
of the program.
If your child is participating, please contact

Best of Bucks II

UPDATE:  We are honored to have been selected as a finalist once again for a “Best of Bucks” competition. This time, in the 2018 Best Of Bucks Annual Readers’ Choice program, powered by The Bucks County Courier Times.  St. Katharine Drexel Catholic School was selected to be among the top 5 schools in Bucks County to compete in the voting phase of the competition. Voting ran from June 24 to July 8 and the winner will be announced mid-September. We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to re-opening next year with the official title of “Best of Bucks.”



We are happy to announce that we’ve been nominated once again for a “Best of Bucks” competition. This time, in the 2018 Best Of Bucks Annual Readers’ Choice program, powered by The Bucks County Courier Times. Now that we’ve been entered into the competition, we need your votes to win!


For the 2018 program, there will be two rounds of voting. The first round, “Nominations,” will be a
write-in round where you nominate your favorite businesses within 225 categories. In this round, you will determine the top five businesses in each of the categories. Voting will run through May 28, 2018. We need your help to ensure our spot not only in the top 5, but as the Best in Bucks County!


Round two begins the “voting” phase which will whittle down the top five businesses into the top three in each category. For this round, you will vote once a day for one of the top five businesses in its respective category. This round of voting will begin June 24 and run through July 8, 2018. Both voting rounds will
occur online at
