Crusader Connection Committee

Motto: “Connecting our past to our future.”

The Crusader Connection Committee (CCC) is dedicated to the preservation of the history and historical artifacts of Harrisburg Catholic/Bishop McDevitt High School.  The mission of the Committee is to explore and preserve our school’s history from its inception in 1918 to the present day through documents, photos, audiovisual media and records.

Committee members are in the process of compiling and organizing various archival properties, which range from printed material such as commencement programs and newspaper clippings to physical memorabilia such as buttons, banners and athletic uniforms. The CCC is seeking the assistance of the Crusader community for the donation of archival material to help complete our collections, as well as volunteer time and expertise and tax deductible contributions to support the cost of preservation and storage.

Copies of photos and other historical items are available currently on a limited basis.  Requests or queries about the CCC may be made by email to the committee at, or in writing to: Bishop McDevitt High School CCC, c/o John Brixius, 1 Crusader Way, Harrisburg, PA 17111. Monetary donations should be sent to Bishop McDevitt High School CCC, c/o John Brixius, 1 Crusader Way, Harrisburg, PA 17111, with checks made payable to Bishop McDevitt High School.

Updates on the progress of the committee’s work and on the permanent location of the archives at the new school will be available soon.
