St FX Alumni Chapter
The Ottawa Alumni has a very active and busy chapter with many events every year. Some of our consistently held events are:
St. FX Day / December 3rd – Yearly we participate in a mass at St. Patrick's Basilica church, followed by our Ottawa chapter hosting a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception for alumni and friends with a special guest speaker from St. FX when possible.
Annual X Alumni Family & Friends golf tournament – This event is a consistent favorite with our Ottawa Chapter. Ottawa alumni and their family and friends attend the best ball format held at various golf courses in the Ottawa / Gatineau area. Prizes for longest drive and closest to the pin are just part of the activities along with a dinner reception, raffles prizes and a special guest speaker from St. FX when possible.
Student Send-off BBQ for local Ottawa area new students – This event is to encourage all new students and their families to come out and meet fellow Ottawa students attending X and to talk to past graduates and local alumni. Held towards the end of August, it is a great way to send off new Ottawa area students as they embark on their X journey.
The Ottawa St. FX Alumni Chapter is always looking for alumni members to volunteer and help out at our many events. If you are interested in getting more involved, or you would like to contact us, please email us at [email protected]
