October 20 is a very special day for all Sacred Heart schools around the world as we celebrate the Feast of Mater Admirabilis. Mater is a fresco of the Virgin Mary, painted in 1844 by Pauline Perdreau, who at that time was a Sacred Heart postulant. This painting has, over the years, taken on special significance, and the Feast Day inspired by it is an important one for the Religious of the Sacred Heart and our entire Sacred Heart community.
Today, many of our students and staff wore pink as we celebrated this special Feast Day and beloved Sacred Heart tradition during the respective Elementary and Secondary assemblies. It was a thoughtful and peaceful ceremony filled with music, readings, and prayers. Special thanks to our Grade 7 Barat students and Grade 2 students for their incredible job leading the assemblies, and to their awesome teachers Ms. Mosher and Ms. Penner.
