Journey to Sugar Creek, Kansas
A Lenten Pilgrimage to Philippine’s Home with the Potawatomi
Thursday, March 26-Friday, March 27, 2020 (2 full days).

In 1841, Philippine Duchesne traveled to Sugar Creek, Kansas and spent a year with the Potawatomi Indians, realizing a lifelong dream of working with Native Americans. She was respected and well-loved, and they called her “the woman who prays always.”

Join Sister Margaret Munch as she leads a pilgrimage to Sugar Creek to visit St. Mary’s and Mound City, where Philippine lived with the Potawatomi. Highlights of the trip include the Indian pay station, Sacred Heart Church and St. Mary’s Mission/St. Philippine Duchesne Memorial Park.


Join Alums for our Day of Service on Saturday, Nov. 16

November 6, 2019

For the past several years, alums have commemorated Philippine’s Feast (Nov. 18) with a Day of Service. Not only is this a community builder among alums, it is a direct expression of Goal 3 of Sacred Heart education: a social awareness which impels to action. Alums serve at area organizations as well as complete projects on the Academy’s campus.

Spirit seeking light and beauty, heart that longest for they rest, Soul that asketh understanding, only thus can ye be blest. Thro’ the vastness of creation tho’ your restless thought may roam. God is all that you can long for, God is all his creatures’ home. — Janet Erskine Stuart, RSCJ
