    Carrollton Student and Alumna Host Their Annual Smash Cancer Tennis-a-Thon

    On Sunday, January 10th Carrollton alumna, Isabella Leano '20, and Carrollton student, Anais Leitchling '21, were published in the Miami Herald Sunday Neighbors section for their second annual Smash Cancer Tennis-a-Thon. 

    They co-founded their charity two years ago when they bonded over their love for tennis, and since then have raised $6,500 of their $10,000 goal. They weren't going to let the pandemic stop them from raising funds this year, so they played six consecutive hours instead of the 12 hours last year, and arranged to play alongside other junior players, club pros and even former touring tennis professionals. 

    Their Carrollton community is so proud of them for recognizing a need, and adapting to the world's circumstances to make sure they still have an opportunity to serve those needs. They hope Smash Cancer "serves as an opportunity to honor victims and support survivors in their journey to a well-balanced, healthy and fulfilling life."

  • Celebrate-ing Together: Run, Shop, and Give to Financial Aid

    Every year in January we gather together as one community of Christ's Heart to celebrate the founding of our school. We honor our rich history, we reflect on our present accomplishments and we look to the future with excitement and joy.
     
    Last year's Celebrate was a huge success thanks to your belief in, and support of, Carrollton's Financial Aid Program. With this success and the myriad of challenges we faced together as a community early this year, Carrollton was able to extend additional financial aid to families across all the grades that experienced unforeseen financial circumstances, allowing our students to seamlessly continue their Carrollton education uninterrupted. The 2020-2021 Academic Year is certainly a challenging one, but, as always, our community is rallying to meet those challenges.
     
    This year we are Celebrate-ing Together to Run, Shop and Give to Support Financial Aid! Our first two events (Run for Financial Aid and Shop for Financial Aid) were huge successes- THANK YOU!!
     
    Our final celebration will be our Give to Financial Aid: Virtual Celebrate on Friday, January 22nd. This will be followed by an early evening Mass on January 23rd at 5:30 p.m. on the bay. You must RSVP here.
     
    Become a Sponsor or Underwriter today and enjoy an abundance of benefits while also making a critical impact to Carrollton's Financial Aid Program. Also, make sure to register HERE so that you can view our exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime Carrollton Only auction offerings, coming soon!
     
    Thank you for supporting this year's Celebrate-ing Together events with us as we raise critical funds to support our financial aid program. Let us join together to overcome the obstacles of today, so that we may all Celebrate a future that is rich with opportunity.
  • The Feast of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

    Isabel Singletary
    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.
