Each year the Secondary Department at NCEA (National Catholic Educational Association) recognizes religious Congregations with ties to Catholic education for particular milestones or anniversaries. This year the SCN Congregation was invited to attend a dinner and an awards luncheon to be recognized during the Annual NCEA meeting in Boston, MA.
SCNs Mary Angela Shaughnessy, Camille Panich, and Mary Elizabeth Miller attended a Dinner on Wednesday evening, April 11, during which the SCN Congregation was honored for 200 years of service.
Thursday, April 12, the Congregation was recognized again at a luncheon in the Sheraton Grand Ballroom. During the luncheon a short history of the Congregation was read and a presentation was given. The Sisters were presented with a plaque marking this milestone and thanking them for years of service to Catholic schools.
Two other Congregations were also honored for their years of service: Racine Domicans, 150 years; Maryknoll Sisters, 100 years.
