Three Dominican students, along with a few other local high school students, visited St. Clement of Rome School in Metairie on October 30 in support of the school’s “Safe, Caring and Respect Week” program. St. Clement students were able to talk to high school students about topics such as peer pressure, bullying and respecting themselves and others. All three Dominican girls are St. Clement alumnae.
November 14 was Veritas Day at St. Anthony of Padua in New Orleans. Every year Sr. Ruth Angelette, OP, a Dominican Sister of Peace invites the students of St. Mary’s Dominican high School to come and kick off the day with songs, games and interaction with the students about the four Dominican Pillars. This year five alums of St. Anthony went to animate the student body for Veritas Day. They prepared a song about St. Dominic and taught it to the students, hand motions included! They played some fun games and then talked about their favorite pillar of Dominican life. Lots of laughter and shouts of joy echoed from St. Anthony’s gym on an early, chilly Friday morning! DHS girls renewed their friendship with teachers and their former classmates. It was a proud moment for the girls to return to their alma mater and for the little ones to look up and aspire to being a young teen leader in the future.
