Dear AHA Families and Friends,

Happy New Year! I hope you and your families enjoyed the Christmas holidays. As we welcome everyone back to school, we will continue our celebration of Christmas with our Epiphany liturgy. On January 5th, our College Angels are invited to back to campus. The day’s program includes lunch, visiting with faculty and a chance to see the new spaces in Kelleher Hall and the STREAM lab. Registration is available on our website.

Acceptance letters will be going out for members of the Class of 2022 in mid-January and we invite our accepted students and their families to join us on the evening of Monday, January 22th for our Class of 2022 Reception. Administration, faculty and students will all be on hand to share information about the registration process and answer any questions you may have about AHA.

Catholic Schools Week begins January 29th. We are very excited to share that Cardinal Joseph Tobin, archbishop of Newark, will be visiting Holy Angels to celebrate Mass for Catholic Schools Week. It will be the Cardinal’s first visit to our school and we look forward to welcoming him here on February 1st.

Pope Francis in his homily on January 1st, the Solemnity of Mary, encouraged the faithful to entrust their hearts to Mary, looking to her as our mother and to see her as a messenger of hope. January 1st is also the World Day of Peace and as our Holy Father offered his wishes for peace to all peoples and all nations on earth he challenged us to be mindful of the less fortunate among us particularly migrants and refugees. As we begin a new year, let us ask our blessed mother Mary, a powerful woman of faith to intercede for us and bring peace to our families, our community and our world. In the words of our foundress, Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, let us pray:

“May the dear God, who helped us so well this year, be our help and strength in the coming year as we confidently hope and pray for this. Amen.”

May we be blessed this year with peace, hope and joy.

Melinda A. Hanlon
