A 10-year labor of love. That’s how Jeanne Burke O’Fallon ’69 referred to Jane Cannon’s recently-published book on the history of the Academy.
Two Hundred Years: A Legacy of Love and Learning spans 15 chapters and includes sketches of some of the most memorable RSCJ associated with the Academy, as well as lyrics of Sacred Heart songs and quotes about St. Charles from former students and from nuns who taught here. Archival photos help illustrate the story, providing a fascinating look back at the facilities, uniforms, statues, artwork, traditions and much more!
This publication has been underwritten by Mrs. Cannon’s alma mater, Maryville University, founded in St. Louis by the Religious of the Sacred Heart in 1872 and still carrying out the broad vision and mission of St. Philippine Duchesne.
