Weekly eNews: September 27, 2018

Pardon our errors. Please refer to this issue of the e-news.

Dear FIRSTNAME,

 

Next week is a special week at the Academy as we will celebrate the Feast Day (and birthday!) of our foundress, Blessed Marie Rose Durocher. This year, the Academy is honoring Marie Rose with Rose Week. Both divisions will participate in activities throughout the week to honor the Sisters of the Holy Names and celebrate their charism. Our Elementary students have an activity planned but I don't want to spoil the surprise for some of our readers. The High School will have a special convocation to hear from the students who attended the SNJM Youth Justice Forum over the summer, have lunch with the Sisters, and hold a backpack drive for migrant students. The highlights of the week will be Spike & Splash on Wednesday evening, and of course, Mass on Friday, which you are welcome to attend.

 

Next week we will also host our first Coffee Talk, and appropriately the subject is Faith. I invite you to the Chapel on Wednesday from 9:00-10:00 a.m. to hear a presentation from Sr. Ann Regan and Sr. Mariellen Blaser on the vision of Blessed Marie Rose and the history of the Sisters in Florida. You'll also be treated to a sneak peak of the new Key West exhibit in the Holy Names Heritage Center Cronen Gallery. If you are able to join us, please click here.

 

Sincerely,

 

Art Raimo
President
