Alumnae Spotlight

Mary Louise Mossy Christovich, 
Academy Class of 1945
 
"While I believe that values come from family, Ursuline teachings had no contradictions. 
No one class was dedicated to political and/or 
social values. They were well integrated into 
every subject. World War II was taking place 
during my time at Ursuline. I had a brother at 
West Point and another in the Pacific, so the 
war was very personal. The nuns were well aware 
of all aspects of the war and utilized a series of informative social media films that alerted us to the dangers of destructive wartime activities. This information had a life-long impact on me and I considered that it provided me with some of the most significant set of values 
of my life."
 

Ursuline Pink Game

 
Ursuline's annual Pink Game is Monday, October 16 at 4:30 p.m. versus Archbishop Hannan. We're raising money - and awareness - for the fight against breast cancer! All proceeds raised will be donated to the East Jefferson Hospital Breast Care Center. Come cheer on our lions!
 
During this game, we will display a banner in honor of those currently battling breast cancer, those who have won the battle and also those who have not. If you have someone whose name you would like added, please email it to alumnae@uanola.org by October 6th and we will be sure to include them.
