Holy Angels hosted a heartwarming Foundation Day celebration in honor of the 190th anniversary of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the Academy's foundresses and sponsors. Angels in Grades 6-12, faculty, staff, and several School Sisters attended the morning prayer service that honored the origins and continuing ministries of AHA’s foundresses and sponsors.
SSNDs who attended this year’s event were S. Kathleen Dunham, an educator and administrator who retired from the AHA Religious Studies Department in 2020; S. Mary Foley, AHA’s retired social worker and current director of auditorium services; S. Josefina Morales, a psychotherapist; and S. Rebecca Tayag, who is marking her 50th Jubilee as an SSND.
SSND Associate Kathleen Sylvester, who retired as Director of Campus Ministry in June of 2023, was also present.
Sylvester and the School Sisters renewed their vows and sang the SSND blessing for the school community.
