Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word Celebrate Their Feast Day!
Wednesday, March 25, 2020
Dear IWA Community-
March 25th is the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word’s feast day. During this current year, the Sisters have been celebrating their sesquicentennial anniversary, the 150th year of establishing their order in the United States. We are fortunate to still abide by their mission, which is also part of IWA’s mission. We emphasize “following the example of Jesus and promoting human dignity.”
When students arrive freshman year, they are immediately immersed into becoming Women of the Word. Their faith is strengthened by four years of theology. Academically, students grow into their scholastics by critically analyzing and always advancing their studies, preparing them for successful futures. Students’ leadership skills have been honed to perfection. The sisterhood of friendships during their four years at IWA, remain beyond the birth and marriages of their own children. As students select their universities and eventually their occupations, they also are acutely aware of addressing local and global concerns.
IWA flourishes because the Sisters had a vision, and that vision has lasted for 150 years. Please take a moment to say an extra prayer today for the continuation of the mission and core beliefs of Incarnate Word Academy. Students, alumnae, faculty, staff and administration:
- To follow the example of Jesus
- To foster academically successful women
- To promote human dignity
- To empower and challenge young women
- To make a positive impact on our world
Praised be the Incarnate Word! Forever, Amen.
Dr. Randy Mikolas
President of Incarnate Word Academy
