In conjunction with the UN, our school community will join with millions around the world by praying a special prayer for peace during homeroom and invite students and faculty to sign a peace pledge by our peace pole.

Feast Day

We celebrate liturgy on the Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels which marks the anniversary of the founding of our school by Sr. Nonna Dunphy SSND on October 2, 1879. Each year, we mandate Eucharistic Ministers for service at Holy Angels.

We join in celebration of the International Day of the Girl, "Girls Speak Out," which is held at UN Headquarters in New York City with featured speakers from around the globe. 

International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Students are invited to "Stand Up and Take Action" against poverty beginning by taking a pledge to eradict this human rights violation.

Foundation Day

Each year we celebrate the October 24, 1833 foundation of the School Sisters of Notre Dame. The Sisters renew their vows before the school community within a prayer service. 

Human Rights Day

December 10th marks the anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN. AHA offers fair trade items for purchase during both lunch periods.

Service Day

Each year the entire Holy Angels community spends the day giving service at more than a dozen locations, including food banks, homes for at-risk mothers, daycare centers, nursing homes, and environmental centers. 

Awareness Day

Awareness Day gives students an additional opportunity to move beyond the classroom and engage in discussions about a variety of issues confronting today's youth. Students participate in workshops that address contemporary topics ranging from personal health to global issues. Dynamic speakers from the local community, area service agencies, and environmental groups contribute to this important day. For more information on past Awareness Days, click here
