  • The Feast of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

    The Feast of Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne might have looked a little different this year due to recommended health guidelines, yet it was celebrated with every bit of the Sacred Heart traditions held dear by students and adults alike.
    Grade Three performed a touching St. Philippine play under the aptly named Duchesne Oak with groups of parents in attendance, all masked and socially distant. The Intermediate girls enjoyed their cupcake goûter, and the entire school participated via live stream in the beautiful mass celebrated by Father Vallee from St. Hugh Catholic Church.
    The personal reflection on Saint Philippine given at the mass by a senior officer in campus ministry, Natalia Ruan ‘21, reminded everyone of St. Philippine’s courage and steadfastness. Her perseverance and humility overcame enormous obstacles to give rise to the Society of the Sacred Heart in the Americas. The example of her determination and unyielding faith can serve us all well during these times of uncertainty caused by the continuing health crisis. We join the rest of the Sacred Heart family in honoring her this November 18th.

  • The Feast of Mater Admirabilis

    In October, we celebrate the Feast of Mater Admirabilis, a fresco which has captured the hearts of all Sacred Heart communities around the world for years. This fresco created by Pauline Perdrau, a young RSCJ, was once considered unappealing, but eventually became well known and praised. In fact, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat insisted that a rendering of the image be placed in every school around the world so that no matter what school in whatever part of the world you were in, once you enter a Sacred Heart school, Mater would welcome you home.
     
    This image of her portrays a youthful Mary with symbols of hope, dedication and purity which stem from her faith in and relationship with God. Students, alumnae and educators alike have benefitted for her daily presence, and their relationship with Mater deepens as they come to understand her more. Read Mrs. Heather Gillingham-Rivas’s reflection on Mater to understand how the intimate bond with Our Lady is a life-long gift students receive as members of the Sacred Heart community.
     
    This year our Carrollton celebration of Mater looked a little different with the view of an empty church as students and families live streamed mass from home, but we were still together in heart and mind. May Mater serve as our example, that in the midst of everything going on through this pandemic, that we have the peace, wisdom and patience of Mater to navigate through it all.
