 November 2017

Dear AHA Families,

We began the month of November with our Faculty Retreat Day on All Saints Day. As we celebrated Mass together in our beautiful new chapel, I was reminded of the many blessings our school community has received from our alumnae, families and friends and my prayers were filled with gratitude. Throughout the month of November you will see a Book of Remembrance on display in our school’s main lobby where all members of our AHA community can enter the names of deceased family and friends to be remembered in our prayers.

Our new spaces in Kelleher Hall are now buzzing with the sights and sounds of school. The first floor classrooms are filled with faculty and students hard at work, the chapel is often used for Religious Studies classes and the student work on display in the new Art studios is amazing. Our business offices have all moved back to Kelleher Hall. The tuition office is located on the first floor and you will find the Advancement/Alumnae, Communications, Facilities and Finance offices along with my office on the second floor. On the first floor you will also find our office of Mission and Ministry.

November is filled with many events here at Holy Angels. On Monday night, November 6th, we will host an evening Open House beginning at 6PM. I invite you to ask your families and friends who are looking at high schools to join us. On Wednesday, November 8th, we invite our alumnae to join us for a “Sip and Paint” gathering in our new Art studios. The fall drama, “And Then There Were None” will be performed throughout the weekend of November 10th, 11th and 12th and our PAA hosts their annual Beefsteak dinner on Saturday November 4th when we will honor Howard Schuman our track coach. I look forward to seeing you here at school.

As we celebrate this season of Thanksgiving, be assured of my prayers for you and your families. In the words of Blessed Theresa, “No angel is able to count the blessings which even on a single day God gives to a person.” Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving filled with the company of family and friends.
