Under a beautiful sunny sky, we celebrated the Feast of our beloved foundress St. Madeleine Sophie Barat in person, outside, and together.
Our entire School community came together to commemorate and celebrate this special day with a heartfelt ceremony that included music, prayers, readings, and reflection. As Sr. Wacher observed during her remarks, Sophie’s focus was love, and together, we have the opportunity to carry on her legacy by becoming loving and lovable human beings.
During the ceremony, we also celebrated the students who have been at the School for 10 years, those faculty members who are retiring, and those on our staff who are celebrating milestones of 5, 10, 20, 25 and even 35 years — together those employees have contributed 332 years to Sacred Heart School of Halifax.
Thank you to all those who made this special ceremony possible. Happy Feast Day!
