Fernanda Carrion '28 is taking the golf world by storm!
After competing in a high school level tournament and finishing 7 our of 77, she was featured in last Sunday's Neighbors section of the Miami Herald. At 11 years old, she is playing on our Varsity Golf team. If Fernanda were to win in Regional competitions on October 3rd , then she will qualify for nationals.
At the beginning of every school year, we come together as a Catholic community to celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit. We ask the Holy Spirit to bless and guide our minds, hearts, and souls as we navigate through a new academic year of growth and development. This year the focus words are love and selflessness. As Head Master, Olen Kalkus said in his reflection, paraphrasing from the First Letter to the Corinthians, accomplishments are not possible without love. Selfless love, when we support and look out for one another, is the time when we are at our best. Mr. Kalkus reminded the community that 20 years ago, on September 11th over 9,000 first responders and follow-up teams exposed themselves to the highest risks. Selfless love strengthens our resilience to get through challenges and encourages our development as a family. We know our communal strength, nourished by the presence and grace of the Holy Spirit, will propel us to a wonderful year. We are looking forward to an incredible 60th anniversary of Carrollton and celebrating 60 years of Sacred Heart education in Miami. Mr. Kalkus closed his reflection quoting from a Christian hymn written by the late Fr. Peter Scholtes which says it all, "They'll know we are Christians by our love."
May 25th is the Feast Day of our foundress, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat. We celebrated with a school mass, where the seniors are traditionally honored and blessed for their forthcoming life journeys. This year they were invited to attend in-person with their mothers, for their last Carrollton mass as students.
May the Holy Spirit and the spirit of Sophie continue to burn within you as you enter new endeavors as women of the Sacred Heart.
Over the last five years, the Carrollton Spirit Store has given back 100% of its earnings to benefit Carrollton's Financial Aid Program. Since the time of its establishment, it has raised $100,000! Thank you to Pilar Cendoya Alvarez-Mena '77, and all the alumnae volunteers who manage the store, for your commitment to the school and your belief in the mission!
