Congratulations to our Ursuline girls who were recently honored at the St. Ann Altar Server Recognition Mass. Serving since 4th grade, seniors Olivia Elam (left) and Sarah Sixkiller (right) received the St. John Berchmans Award for nine continuous years of service at the Altar. In addition to this recognition, both girls received other special awards.
Olivia Elam received the 2021 Ashley Code Joy of Service Award. "This award is presented to the Altar Server who exhibits great joy in serving, not only at the altar but in all aspects of life - a person who takes pride in carrying the cross of Jesus, a person who is happy to volunteer, a person who evangelizes by their joyful way of life, a person whose smile can warm a heart, a person in whom we can see Jesus, a person who is the difference that makes a difference."
Sarah Sixkiller received the 2021 St. Ann Altar Server of the Year Award. She represented the St. Ann Altar Servers at the Serra Club of New Orleans Altar Servers Awards Mass and Ceremony at St. Rita Church, where she received an award medallion from Archbishop Aymond.
We are so proud of their accomplishments and well-deserved honors! Way to go, Ursuline girls!
