We can only surmise, at this point, that St. Procopius students competed in interscholastic athletics with other schools.
We could find no mention of the school on the IHSA website. If you have this information, as well as the the missing "quick
facts" info, please contact us via the means listed below.
From Bob Contreras (Class of 1979):
"My name is Robert Contreras, and I am St. Procopius High Class of 1979! I am one of 4 boys that had
the privilege of attending this great school. I grew up in the surrounding neighborhood and was known by all the local people.
Thanks to the then-associate pastor Fr. Terence Fitzmaurice O.S.B. I got my opportunity
to graduate from high school at St. Procopius. I have so many memories of St.Procopius, the church, the school, the lot behind
the school, the youth center, (which was established when I was there) and even the Carnivals and other fund-raising events that took place then, that I can write a book! People, situations, and events
that took place from 1967 to 1984 are all etched in my mind forever."
From Paulette DeHoyos (Class of 1966)
"School colors for the class of 1966 were navy blue and gold."
From Cecilia Cruz (Class of 1978, dated 3/18/2021):
"I live not far from the school and every Sunday attended Mass. I remember when we have bands to play at the dances in
the auditorium. The parents would prepare food in the kitchen to raise money for the school. We had bake and candy sales,
raffles, and yearbook pledges where we would go to every commercial business for them to buy a page in the yearbook. We had
performances for almost every occasion, and not to forget Christmas with the help of teachers and parents. Those are
the fond memories I have when I attended St. Procopius H.S."
