Dear AHA Families,
This first day of March also marks the first day of Lent. At Holy Angels, we begin our Lenten journey together as we receive ashes. Throughout Lent, let us pray for peace in our world and our homes as we respond to the needs of our world and share our many gifts with others. I hope this season will bring each of us time for reflection and renewal.
On the last day of March, we will celebrate our 20th annual Angelic Evening Gala. This year we will gather together at a new venue, the Palisadium in Cliffside Park on March 31st at 6:30 p.m. I look forward to seeing many of our alumnae, families and friends gathered there for an enjoyable and fun-filled evening as we support AHA. Our advancement office has been working very hard with our many parent volunteers to plan an evening full of fine food, music and beautiful prizes. All of the proceeds from this year’s gala will directly benefit our students by providing funds for equipment and furnishings for the new art studios and classrooms in Kelleher Hall. Please check out the many ways you can support Angelic Evening on our website at www.holyangels.org/AngelicEvening2017.
The work continues on Kelleher Hall to complete the first phase of the project dealing with the demo and remediation of the building’s interior. At our February board of trustees meeting, we donned our hard hats and held the official launch for the project. We expect to begin the reconstruction of the building in late spring. I will continue to keep you posted on our progress and I thank you for your support.
Be assured of our prayers for you and your families throughout Lent. Together, let us pray:
“God of mercy and compassion, grant that we may experience Lent with honesty, courage and humility as together we share in the love of Jesus. Blessed Theresa of Jesus, pray for us.”
Mrs. Melinda A. Hanlon
