Beloved Angels Marissa Dellapi, Emily Nam, and Janella Osbourne received the Sister Catherine Green Kindness Award for bringing comfort and joy to others.

Star of the Stage

Rianna LeHane’s charming portrayal of Lady Larken in AHA’s production of “Once upon a Mattress” earned her the prestigious Metro Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. This 2019 graduate also received a Foxy Award for her leading role in “Peter and the Starcatcher.”

Hess Honored

Ashley Hess (AHA ’19) capped off her sensational high school tennis career by winning the Angel Award, the top honor given to an AHA athlete. Hess won the Bergen County title, and became a state finalist twice. She is a two-time National High School Tennis All-American.

NCEA Invitees

Three Angels demonstrated their knowledge at the National Catholic Educational Association’s 2019 STREAM 3.0 conference. Alexis discussed the chair she made from cardboard, while Amelia and Joanna presented an LED light show, a robot, and 3-D printed desktop organizers.

AHA’s Bearing Witness

Emily, Grace, Kayla, Annabel, and Sophia traveled to Arizona and Mexico to bring supplies and hope to migrants who are aspiring to better lives. The Angels visited a courthouse, worked at a shelter, and participated in a cross planting to honor a man who died on his way to the USA.


Sisterly Love

Every summer, Angel volunteers wing their way to Philadelphia to help SSND sister school Saint Peter the Apostle prepare for September. Erin, Madi, Kate, Valeria, and Natasha decorated bulletin boards, stocked rooms with supplies, arranged furniture, and set up the school store.
