Alumnae Summer Fun

Young Alum Club

Alumnae Barbecue
Our first Young Alum Club gathering was held at Mike Hess Brewery in Walnut Creek. Good times, good weather, and great beer was shared with new and old friends. We look forward to celebrating together at another Young Alum Club event during the holiday season. 

Our 1st Alumnae Barbecue was a hit! Great weather, delicious food, and a beautiful setting brought alumnae together with their families to enjoy the day. Alumnae from classes of 1974 to 2015 came together to tour the Carondelet Athletics Complex, enjoy conversation with classmates and form new friendships within our alumnae community.

This past weekend, my husband, Robert (DLS '88) and I enjoyed our annual "high school friends" camping trip. This trip, launched shortly after our college graduations, was a commitment to staying connected after growing up. My guess is that many of you have similar traditions; camping trips, girls' nights out, Christmas parties, etc, that celebrate your childhood friendships. The roots we established at Carondelet grew into sturdy branches that forever connect us. We are like-minded partners as described by the Sisters of St. Joseph charism.

One of the most exciting aspects of sharing this Carondelet family tree is not just engaging with those we "hung out with" in the inner court but also engaging with the greater Carondelet community. I am thrilled when I connect on social media with Carondelet alumnae that I might not have known too well during my teenage years. I know we have a bond rooted in the tradition of the Carondelet High School Mission, marked by the call to live with heart, faith, and courage. Our alumnae organization is a dynamic way to celebrate treasured friendships as well as create new social or business networking relationships. Add to this an even higher purpose; to contribute to the foundation being laid for the young women of our beloved alma mater.

As we celebrate the peak of summer, let's also celebrate our sisterhood friendships - the old, the new, and the yet-to-come. Let's recognize our call to "pay it forward" by actively participating in our alumnae association. Consider these words of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Founder of the Jesuits, the order of Jean Pierre Medaille who sponsored the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1650, Le Puy, France.

"All the things in this world are gifts of God, created for us, to be the means by which we can come to know Him better, love Him more surely, and serve Him more faithfully. As a result, we ought to appreciate and use these gifts of God insofar as they help us toward our goal of loving service and union with God."

So, as the summer winds down and the fall approaches, let's use those many gifts we've been given and connect, support, and contribute to the faith-filled foundation that grew us!
