"The SMR community spoke, and we listened! It is clear that this new multi-purpose space will create a center that our students, faculty and staff will be proud of. It will enable our entire school to gather to celebrate our most important events - Mass, graduation, student performances and athletic events. The new gymnasium will provide improved athletic facilities to compete in the prestigious Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, and allow us to welcome the community to host their events."

Mary Joy Hurlburt, President and CEO

"This new center will be a tremendous source of pride for our students. This is also the perfect opportunity to invest in an organization that continues to promote the development of young people who will make a positive difference wherever they go from here."

Jimmy Burke, '86, parent '19, Capital Campaign Co-Chair

"St. Mary’s Ryken is all about community and family. These are the reasons why it is so important to give back – because it’s our responsibility to take care of our family."

Patrick Haley, '99

"The momentum is here, and we need to continue that momentum to take advantage of all the right pieces being in place - our faculty, administrators and students. This school is going to be here for a very long time."

Mary Lynn Stone, parent '06 & '08, Capital Campaign Co-Chair
