Featured Stories

In the spirit of Easter’s redemptive inspiration, we are featuring 2 mother and child stories, both tales of faith that conquers hear-rending fears and trials. Read about Ana and her son, Manuel, and Coroy and her daughter, Cathy. Journey with them through their pain, uncertainty and then…REDEMPTION!

MOTHERS…they are the unsung heroes that make the world go around. They are the first breath of life, the shapers of our minds and hearts, the models we aspire to become, our loudest cheerleaders and the last one standing when all else fails you. She is the heart of the home, the calm before the
storm, the bedrock through trials and tribulations. And no matter how old we become, it is her counsel that we seek, her touch that cradles us back to halcyon days of youth. “A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take “ (— Cardinal Mermillod).

On Mother’s Day, we pay tribute to our mothers. We opened up our space for alumnae to tell their mothers how very special they are. These odes are in words of love and gifts from the heart.

joy and laughter to their PET MAMA’S lives.
