Theme for the School Year

2019-2020 School Year Theme

CREATING NEW POSSIBILITIES

Our theme for the 2019-20 school year is Creating New Possibilities! On November 2, 2018, we celebrated our 170th anniversary of educating young women in the spirit of St. Angela Merici, foundress of the Ursuline order. When we study the life of St. Angela we find her to be a woman who lived according to her values. She preached the Gospel, and when necessary she used words. She listened to God’s spirit and allowed her life to be directed by God’s spirit, serving others, leading with an innovative, courageous, and bold spirit. She listened to the “signs of the times, and advised the members of her community to do the same, “If, according to the times and circumstances, the need arises to make new rules or do something differently, do it prudently and with good advice.” (The Testament of St. Angela).

It is in this spirit that we begin the school year focusing on this theme, Creating New Possibilities...to inspire, serve, educate, and empower our young women for Christian living and leadership in this 21st century global society. St.Angela’s words guide us today, reminding us to “Do something, get moving, be confident, risk new things, stick with it, pray, and then be ready for big surprises.” (Prologue to St. Angela’s Counsels)
