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.
When Brianne Bannon ’10 thinks of her years at the Academy, these words come to mind: Home. Friendship. Warmth.
Supportive, inspiring and intellectual are the words Amanda Hasenbeck ’16 uses to describe her experience at the Academy.
We are excited to connect with Academy alums in the Kansas City area on Friday, Nov. 8 from 5 – 7 p.m. for a French-themed Happy Hour at Le Fou Frog (400 E. 5th Street, KCMO).
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
