    Virtual Graduation for the Class of 2020

    On Thursday, August 30th, the Carrollton community came together to virtually honor the graduating class of 2020. Surrounded by their family at home and friends on their screens, they recognized the many accomplishments and obstacles their class overcame.

    Blessing of the St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Statue

    Isabel Singletary
    On the morning of January 30th, a statue of Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne was unveiled to the Carrollton community and blessed in a beautiful ceremony led by Father Robert Vallee. In an alcove on the Duchesne campus, Philippine sits in contemplation at the center of the Rose Philippine Duchesne Prayer Garden. Her serene countenance and prayerful pose inspire all who visit as she holds her profession cross over her heart.

    The generous gift of the Settembrino family, this likeness of Philippine serves as an encouragement to our community to follow her example of such personal generosity, gratitude, and deep spirituality that she transcended the boundaries of her human failings and errors, never allowing herself to be distracted from her calling to make God’s love known in the Americas.

    The morning event was attended by students and parents from all grades, faculty, staff, and Board members. Prayers and invocations were followed by a short re-enactment tableau of Philippine, the pioneer children and Potawatomi she dedicated her life to. The exquisite music of the violin filled the air of a cloudless, perfect morning. If you did not have the chance to attend, you can watch the entire blessing here.

  • Celebrate 2020

    Isabel Singletary
    Celebrate 2020, the 58th anniversary of the founding of Carrollton, was a great success thanks to the extraordinary efforts of Chair Beba Padron and her committee of dedicated volunteers. This year’s theme called “I am:____” showcased the school’s commitment to educate the whole child: intellectually, spiritually, socially, and physically. The evening festivities were held for the first time in the Fernandez and Argiz Families Wellness Center which was transformed into a sophisticated party venue rimmed with delicious food buffets, silent auction displays, cigar lounge, specialty scotch bar, and lounge areas. The hundreds of guests who attended danced the night away to the sounds of live music in support of an event that benefits Carrollton’s financial aid program, making possible a Carrollton education for so many of our students. The Commemorative Program displayed here honors the many sponsors, advertisers, and supporters who continue to help ensure the excellence of Sacred Heart education in South Florida. We are grateful for their support of our mission.
