Celebrating St Philippine Feast Day at Senior School
This morning our Grade 8 girls led the Senior School in an assembly to celebrate St. Philippine Duchesne, whose feast day of November 18 is recognized and celebrated by Sacred Heart Schools and the RSCJ around the world.
In this ceremony, students shared moments of St. Philippine Duchesne’s life and her missionary journey to bring Sacred Heart education to North America. And while we acknowledged that Philippine, as a human being was not without fault, we recognized that she was a woman of humility, courage, strength, and faith, whose commitment laid the foundation of Sacred Heart education across North America.
Thank you to the Grade 8 girls and to Ms. Fear for leading today’s ceremony and to Campus Minister Moira Schrader for her support.
