Grandparents’ Day 2013
October 24, 2013
October 22 marked Sacred Heart’s fifth annual Grandparents’ Day. Sponsored by the Office of Mission Advancement, sophomores invited their grandparents to campus for the morning. Together they enjoyed a continental breakfast, songs from the upcoming musical, Annie, and presentations by Sr. Sheila and the World Language Department, and a prayer service in the chapel. Sophomores were also available to take their grandparents on private tours. More than 100 grandparents joined us for this special day on the Sacred Heart calendar.
Grandparents and sophomores alike thoroughly enjoyed the preview of Annie and the time in Chapel was especially meaningful, as each part of the service honored the bond between granddaughters and grandparents.
“My grandparents loved the day, and got such a warm feeling from everyone they met and I love that I get to share my appreciation and love of this school with the people who matter most to me, my grandparents,” offered sophomore Francesca Campanelli. And from her grandparents Frank and Marie O’Neill, “We love the camaraderie and atmosphere of Sacred Heart; we felt as though we were at home the minute we walked in.”
