What a joy-filled day to celebrate the feast of our foundress, St. Philippine Duchesne! We were blessed to have Father Art Cavitt share his energy, passion and love for Philippine with our Academy community, including some VERY special guests: Grandparents and Grandfriends! After mass, Grandfriends enjoyed treats and classroom visits, spending the morning with their beloved grandchildren.
“I ask myself, here in this place of Philippine’s home and heart, how does Philippine’s Feast Day speak to us today, now, at this moment?” Mr. Horner shared following mass. “I believe that Philippine is smiling, watching from heaven with happiness in her heart for her school … because she knows that her legacy of love has been picked up and will continue through each of you.”
Our hearts are full of gratitude for our grandparents and for Philippine’s legacy of love and learning. We wish the Academy community a happy and safe Thanksgiving break. As Mr. Horner encourages, “So go, love intentionally, extravagantly, and unconditionally so that others may say I know they are of the Sacred Heart because of their love.”
