The Academy of the Holy Cross community gathered for its opening Mass celebration on Wednesday, August 30. In celebration of the Academy’s 150th year, six priests joined the assembly for the liturgy: Msgr. John Enzler (principal celebrant), Msgr. Ray East, Msgr. Maury O’Connell, Father Stephen Planning, SJ, Father Martino Choi, and Father Mbonyumugenzi Deogratias. Four Sisters of the Holy Cross also attended the Mass: Sister John Anthony, Sister Vivian, Sister Katherine Kase, and Sister Sharon Mihm ’63. All in attendance received a special 150th pin during the Mass and were encouraged to wear it throughout the year. Following the Mass, Msgr. Enzler led a blessing and dedication ceremony of the new Heritage Hall display space. At lunchtime following the celebration students were treated to cupcakes by the administration.
