Kally Werning, a senior and member of “Sotto Voce,” will perform as the court jester in the madrigal dinner.

“There are surprises in every other line, and laughs are required,” she said. “The night will not be forgotten.”

As the central Catholic high school in Lincoln, Pius X’s mission is to enrich the mind, heart and soul of each student through a Christ-centered, Catholic environment that provides academic excellence and preparation to achieve a meaningful, faith-filled life. Now in its 59th year and serving more than 1,100 students in grades 9-12, Pius X is guided by Pope St. Pius X’s motto, “Restore all things in Christ.”
