Convocation at St. Edward's University Brings Together Holy Cross Educators
The Academy of the Holy Cross is part of a global consortium of Holy Cross schools who are all connected by the vision of Blessed Basil Moreau. President Katy Prebble, Director of Student Activities Phyllis Ouellette, and College Counselors Rebecca Allen and Kelly Fitzpatrick participated in the Holy Cross Institute’s 2017 Convocation at St. Edward’s University on April 1 and 2. The theme of this year’s convocation was “The Work of Each and Everyone: Preserving and Promoting the Mission of Holy Cross Education.” The program brought together Holy Cross educators from around the globe.
A highlight of the program was the keynote presentation “Redeeming Administration” delivered by Dr. Ann Garrido, Associate Professor of Homiletics at the Aquinas Institute of Theology. The program included numerous breakouts relevant to educators and unique to the Holy Cross educational charism. During the weekend, alumnae from the Academy who are currently attending St. Edward’s joined the conference and connected with our attendees. Ms. Prebble and Ms. Ouellette also met three Holy Cross Sisters who were attending the conference: Sister Esther Entsiwah, CSC from Ghana, Sister Beatrice Driwaru, CSC from Uganda, and Sister Diane Cundiff, CSC Principal of Colegio Santa Maria in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The Holy Cross Institute is a national network of secondary schools, colleges and universities founded and sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross in the United States. The institute hosts educational, spiritual and service programs throughout the year for students and educators.
