Newsletter of May 21, 2021
We would like to thank our Marketing and Development Director, Mr. Clemente Martin, for his service to OLC this school year. He is moving on and will be attending graduate school at Creighton University in Omaha. We wish him the best! At the same time, we would like to welcome our new Marketing Director, Ms. Candelaria Rosales. Ms. Rosales graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a bachelor’s in Journalism and a minor in Latin American Studies. Prior to Our Lady of Charity, she was the Marketing and Development Director at Our Lady of Grace School, located on the North Side of Chicago for 4-1/2 years. She has a background in photography, arts, and journalism.
Thank you, too, to Mrs. Sweeney for coordinating our 8th grade Ribbon Mass yesterday. It was an example of the family atmosphere we have here at OLC. Good luck to our 8th graders: “With enlightened minds and zealous hearts, we will change the world!” OLC Mission Statement
