This week, in a particular way, we proudly claim our heritage and participation as a Catholic School. It is an opportunity to be reminded of the gift and responsibility we have to enthusiastically educate to the message of Jesus Christ, whose Heart most perfectly reveals the depth of God’s very personal Love to and for each of us!

Within the Church, different gifts, or charisms, are given to both people and groups of people. As a Sacred Heart Catholic School, our charism flows from our founding congregation, the Society of the Sacred Heart, whose mission within the Church has always been this:

People are still commenting on the joy that was palpable at Jane Cannon’s retirement party Jan. 16. Three hundred of her nearest and dearest turned out to fete her for 41 years of beautiful service, and to wish her much-deserved happiness in the years ahead. A liturgy in the Shrine was followed by a cocktail reception in the Conference Room, parlor, hallway and Cribbin Hall library. Jane’s friends shared celebratory remarks, and a very special visitor (aka St. Philippine) made an appearance. Our thanks to the many volunteers who hosted this party, and to Bill Slaughter for taking many of these photographs.

We are proud of our nearly 200-year heritage as a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of St. Louis! Several years ago, HEC-TV created a documentary entitled Mission to Educate: A Faithful Past, a Faith-Filled Future. It is a rich historical review of how St. Louis earned the title ‘Rome of the West’ and how St. Louis Catholic schools constantly evolved to continue the tradition of excellence.

St. Philippine Duchesne and the Academy are featured throughout the film.  Click here to view Mission to Educate
