Lisa M. Bartholomy Hendey ’81 came home to her high school alma mater to serve as our keynote speaker.
Lisa is the founder and editor of CatholicMom.com and the bestselling author of The Handbook for Catholic Moms and A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms. She is graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Class of 1985.
Lisa gave us a look at saints — some popular and some less well known — who inspire and intercede for us along our path to heaven. We’ll look at the lives of specific saints who serve as role models of a commitment to justice, courage and virtue in the context of this Year of Faith and this remarkable moment in Church history as we anticipate the Papal Conclave.
Our time together concluded with Mass celebrated by Msgr. J. Michael McKiernan in the Mater Dei chapel.
This annual Day of Recollection for our Faculty and Staff continues to be a wonderful “time out” from our busy lives. This time out reminded us of what is most important and inspired us to stay the course as we prepare to wrap a very successful 2012-13 school year here at Mater Dei High School.
In Mater Dei,
Helen Steves, Director of Campus Ministry
