Our Academy Sophomore and Junior Pin Mass and Ceremony was a beautiful celebration of our Ursuline girls. Sophomores received the Our Lady of Prompt Succor pin. Our Lady of Prompt Succor is honored as the patroness of both our state and city. The Ursuline devotion to Our Lady began in 1810 when Mother Saint Michel prayed to her for quick help in coming to New Orleans to work alongside other Ursuline Sisters. Mother Mary, under the patronage of “Our Lady of Prompt Succor,” has provided quick and favorable help to countless faithful followers.
Juniors received their special pin. On this pin, is a “U” for Ursuline - the Alma Mater for which these Ursuline girls will forever hold in their hearts. Their class year 2022, is connected by a chain - a symbol of their class’ connection to Ursuline well into the future. We recognized our juniors as upperclassmen who will soon grow into the leaders of the Academy.
Congratulations to all of our Ursuline girls! Thank you Father Sidney Speaks for being our celebrant.
