More than a dozen high school seniors returned to their Alma Mater recently to talk about the expectations and challenges of high school life. Nine girls met with the Eighth Class girls and four boys met with the Eighth Class boys, offering their unique perspectives and answering the students’ questions. We very much appreciate these graduates’ time on a Friday afternoon, as well as their willingness to share their experiences with the Class of 2013.
Lent is a time of reflection, repentance and growth. Sister Glavin invites us to be attentive to our footprint.
Our Ash Wednesday liturgy on Feb. 13 will take place at 9:30 a.m. at St. Charles Borromeo.
Education opens doors to a better way of life. The Fourth Class is coordinating two projects that will enable the Academy to join with the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart in Miami, Florida, the University of Miami, and Partners in Health to build Notre Dame de La Colline School in the impoverished country of Haiti. We want to help provide Haitian children with opportunities to become all God has created them to be.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, in designating a different American Saint for each month of this Year of Faith, have named February the “Month of Philippine.” To contribute to the celebration, members of the Sacred Heart family from around the country are sharing reflections, homilies, poems and prayers― something different for each day of the month. The opening reflection, “Philippine: Woman with a Global Heart” is by Sister Glavin. See it on the Society website, www.rscj.org.
We at the Academy of the Sacred Heart are proud to be the stewards of Philippine’s first and last American school, stewards of her inspirational story, stewards of her saintly remains, and stewards of her holy example through our lives and our loves.
