Ursula Klein Performing Arts Program

A group of Alumni is creating an amazing new program for the area Catholic middle school students and to honor their former performing arts teacher, Miss Ursula Klein. She was a tremendously talented teacher, choir director, musician, and soloist who gave her entire career to her students at Resurrection Elementary School, Resurrection High School, and later Gabriels High School. No one can measure how many lives were impacted by her, her talent, and her modeling as one of God’s disciples. 

The Ursula Klein Junior Cougar Performing Arts Program is a powerful gift empowering middle school students from all partner schools, area parishes’ faith formation, and home school programs in our region to have the opportunity to develop their vocal talent and performance skills while developing lifelong friendships. Watch for a fun array of musical stage performances, musical instrument drive, choir, marching band, music ministry choir, summer performing arts camp, and more.

This new middle school program is planned to debut in 2022. Watch for social media posts, flyers, and information in your parish bulletins in the first quarter.

The home of the Ursula Klein Junior Cougar Music Program will be Lansing Catholic High School’s auditorium, Cougar Stadium, and St. John Paul the Great Chapel.

This enriching new program can be made possible only through your financial support. Our goal is to raise $250,000 to build and sustain this tremendous program.  A matching gift has been secured for all gifts received prior to December 31, 2021, up to $40,000. 

Give a gift today in memory of Ursula Klein and your donation will be matched up to $40,000. To donate go to lansingcatholic.org/donate-now or mail to Lansing Catholic High School, Ursula Klein Memorial Jr. Cougar Music Program, 501 Marshall Street, Lansing, MI  48912. For more information email Paula Wilcox paula.wilcox@lansingcatholic.org or call her at 517-267-2121.
