January 27, 2017 was a very special day at Ursuline as we proudly celebrated the Feast of St. Angela, joining Ursuline schools around the world in honoring the foundress of the Ursuline order.
Msgr. Keane concelebrated our beautiful Mass with our board member, Rev. Jose-Luis S. Salazar, SJ, (also known as Fr. Lito). Fr. Lito's thoughtful and humorous homily helped us to better connect with St. Angela. Our Ursuline Sisters renewed their vows, reaffirming their commitment to the order and the teachings of Angela. We so very much value the Sisters at our school.
We were delighted when the Middle School Chorus sang for us "Serviam" - our new school song. The song is one we learned from our sister school St. Ursula's College in Toowoomba, Australia. Two members of the Sixth Grade shared their personal reflections on St. Angela based on the lessons they had with Sr. Pat Schifini, OSU. We also announced that five students have been recognized by the Ursuline Educational Network for their community service. They are Alicia McMillan, Keren Deneny, Althea Chowke, Meghan Hartson and Sarah Hillesheim.
Members of our Board of Trustees joined us for Mass and spent time visiting classrooms and sharing lunch with some students. Our trustees are clearly dedicated to the school and invested in ensuring the best educational experience possible.
