Angelus News Profiles Incoming TAC Freshman

Posted: June 20, 2020

“I have not only been taught, but also have grown to truly know over time to recognize God’s actions in the world and in those around me,” says Evelyn Murray, a new graduate of Notre Dame Academy High School in Los Angeles who was recently profiled by Angelus News.

As president of the school’s campus ministry, she spent much of the last year sharing the Faith with her fellow students, even after the onset of the pandemic and its attendant lockdown. “We made significant efforts to deepen prayer life at NDA, such as forming prayer groups and setting up different opportunities for reflection during the Lent and Advent seasons,” Miss Murray told Angelus reporter Tom Hoffarth. Along with the campus ministry’s vice president, she wrote personal letters to every student in the school’s directory. “Although each of our positions was more difficult than we signed up for, the small moments of joy we brought to our peers made it all worth it.”

A straight-A student, a member of her school’s Liturgical Choir, and the recipient of its President’s and Pillar Awards (the latter, for being a woman of compassion), Miss Murray will travel north this fall to become a freshman at Thomas Aquinas College, California.

“We look forward to welcoming Evelyn and all of the Class of 2024 in August,” says Director of Admissions Jon Daly. “They are a bright, joyful, and faithful group who, having persevered through difficult times, are eager to let their light shine in our program of Catholic liberal education.”
