You will be hearing from us! We understand that our relationship with you will be the basis for the work that we will undertake as a Council.

Just over fifty (50) years old, Holy Child is beginning a new era of alumnae relations with the launch of this Council comprised of twenty-six (26) dynamic graduates and two (2) current students, ranging from the classes of 1966 to 2018. The Council’s Mission is to reach out to the full alumnae community to re-engage alumnae with each other and with Holy Child.

Take a closer look at the Alumnae Council committees

(We welcome your ideas, involvement, and assistance!)



Archives & Education
Work with the Advancement Office to begin building working archives; find ways to make the Archives accessible to the Holy Child Community; and create opportunities to begin educating students as to what it means to be an alum of Holy Child.



Network & Events
Assist with planning alumnae gatherings/events, including Reunions; assist the Office of Advancement in identifying opportunities for alumnae gatherings and networking in various areas – locally, nationally, internationally.
