Cabrini High School honored Mother Cabrini’s annual Feast Day with a mass, a reception, and a Legacy Brunch as a large gathering of the Cabrini family came together on the school’s campus in celebration of Saint Cabrini’s life Friday, November 13th.
Mother Cabrini’s Feast Day is a momentous day to the many students, faculty, staff, alumnae, and their families who have been influenced by her legacy in New Orleans and around the world.
This year’s Feast Day was especially celebratory because three members of the Stella Maris Provincial’s office of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart in New York City were in attendance, Provincial Sr. Pietrina Raccuglia MSC, Provincial Councilor; and former Principal and teacher at Cabrini High School and current member of the Board of Trustees, Sr. Catherine Garry, MSC; and former director of the Cabrini Day Care Center, Sr. Archangel Turco MSC.
In addition to the Feast Day Mass, Cabrini hosted its annual Legacy Brunch, honoring alumnae and their legacy daughters and granddaughters. The brunch/reception was open to special guests, all alumnae, faculty, and staff. During the lunch, many historical artifacts and photos of Mother Cabrini, the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, students, the buildings, and the events that are part of the history of the school were shared among the attendees.
