As the 39th Biennial AASH Conference is about to be hosted April 10-14, 2013 in Omaha, Nebraska Sheila Haggas, Head of School and the current students of Duchesne Academy are looking forward to showing off the newly constructed five story addition to all Sacred Heart alums.

In the above video look for the white Carrara Marble panel with Sacred Heart seal inset. This was originally part of an altar and produced by Daprato Rigali Studios. The altar may have come from the Sacred Heart Academy on Taylor Street (Holy Family Parish) and later was moved to Barat College of the Sacred Heart - Lake Forest, IL. The marble panel was found in the basement of Dougherty Dormitory before demolition in 2007. It now looks stunning in its new home!
This year marks the 80th Anniversary of AASH. If you have never attended a conference before you should consider coming. Bring your daughter/son, sister/ brother (yes there are Sacred Heart men!) spouse and/or a college roommate. The reunion with alums from all over the U.S. will be enriching. Past attendees have said that getting together with fellow Sacred Heart alums is socially, spiritually and intellectually stimulating. Suzy Kratochvil, Conference Chair and her committee have put together an awesome program. So please plan to join us as we Celebrate our Legacy in the Heartland!
