On April 29, 2016, Holy Child Academy, Old Westbury, in New York paid special tribute to the Holy Child Sisters at the school’s annual spring gala. Special recognition was given to Jean O’Meara, SHCJ, and Eileen McDevitt, SHCJ, for their extraordinary service over many years.
Mary Ann Buckley, SHCJ, accepted an original painting specially commissioned to honor the Sisters; the painting will be hung in the school’s administration building.
The next day, alums from HCA’s first four classes of the high school honored Elizabeth Loomis, SHCJ, the first principal of the high school.
Even the children had a creative word of thanks, which you can see in the video below.
