Students say goodbye

Never mind that they stayed up late for last night’s dance, most of the High School Summer Program students were up early this morning to bid their friends a fond farewell. The vans and buses began leaving the campus as early as 4:00 a.m. With tears, hugs, and promises to meet again, the students said goodbye.

Jon, Marie, and Stephen DalyBefore this blog signs off, however, we must make sure to thank Admissions Director Jon Daly — and his wife, Marie, and their seven beautiful children — whose heroic efforts and selfless sacrifices make the Summer Program possible.

To the right is a photo of Mr. and Mrs. Daly and their youngest, Stephen, taken at last night’s gala. Below is a poem, written on behalf of the prefects, that Head Women’s Prefect Kathleen Sullivan read aloud at the dinner:

Poem to Mr. Daly

Thank you, Mr. Daly!

Stay tuned … there will likely be one or more concluding posts to this year’s blog. But until then, we leave you with a watercolor that student Amelia S. left behind in St. Monica Hall — Our Lady, watching over the empty dorm rooms, just as she has been watching over the Summer Program these past two weeks.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!
