St. Philippine Joins St. Louis Walk of Fame

Today, on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, St. Philippine Duchesne’s star and bronze plaque on the St. Louis Walk of Fame were unveiled to the cheers of approximately 200 RSCJ, Sacred Heart alumni, families and friends. Mr. Joe Edwards, founder of the Walk of Fame, read the inscription on the plaque, followed by remarks by Sister Sheila Hammond, Provincial of the US and Canada Society of the Sacred Heart, and Sister Maureen Glavin, our Head of School. [remarks]  Bill Herbert’s Ragtime trio provided joyous tunes preceding the event. The star and plaque are located at 6241 Delmar on the Loop (in front of United Provisions Grocery). Thanks to all who welcomed our remarkable saint’s story to the public square!
