Parade of The Wooden Soldiers

Do you remember Sister Mary Angela teaching us this song in French in the 4th Grade?  I just found it in English on YouTube.  Thought it would bring back memories for you.

Officers For Confraternity of Sacred Heart

I came across this old clipping recently and wanted to share with my classmates.  (Sunday, October 6, 1957)

CONFRATERNITY - Officers for the Confraternity of Sacred Heart at St. Aloysius High School were recently elected. Left to right, there are Paul Hosemann, president (Deceased); Michael Hosemann. vice-president; George Evans, secretary, and Eddie Habert, treasurer.

Confraternity of St. Aloysius Elects Officers. Aside from having the same name and being the same spiritual organization, the Confraternity, this year, is improved somewhat from last year. Elections were held in a different manner than in previous years. Voting took place in each of the high school grades, that is, from the ninth to the twelfth grades. In this process, priority was given to the senior members for occupancy of the first two offices, president and vice-president. The junior members were the first choice for the last two offices, secretary and treasurer. One of the unique features of the Confraternity this year is centralization of power in each homeroom, whereby elected class representatives to conduct the meetings of the Confraternity in their own homeroom. These representatives are as follows: Seniors: George Ettinger, William Howell, and Donald Riddle. Juniors: Edward Habert, Harold Logue and Larry Miller. Sophomores: Grove Stewart, William Yerger, and David Ellis. Freshmen: Charles Caldwell, Freddy Hess, and George Bragg. This method does away with general meetings. However, their general meetings will not be entirely done away with. They will be held from time to time in order to acquaint each class with what the other classes have accomplished. The chief projects for this school year include devotion to Mary-Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, attendance at the holy hour, the Family Rosary, a study of the Liturgical movement, devotion to the Sacred Heart, and, in particular, reparation to the Sacred Hear. There are planned projects of a tangible nature for the members that are both corporal and spiritual, for example, aiding home missionaries distribution literature to hospitals, cooperating with parish organization, etc. The Confraternity, as a whole aims, to instruct active members to carry on Catholic Action.

Pix After Classics In The Courtyard

Last Friday, November 2nd I went to our former Alma Mater S.F.X.A., now Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation, and enjoyed Classic Pop and County performed by Ralph Miller.  Lunch was offered by The Anthony and was able to sit with Shirley Farrish who graduated a couple of years ahead of us.  This is usually performed the last two Fridays in October and the first two Fridays of November.  It offers a variety of entertainment through different genres of classical music.  Local entertainers and local restaurants provide the music and lunch on Fridays from noon-1:00 p.m. The musical entertainment is sponsored by a generous grant from Entergy Mississippi. The entertainment is provided for free and lunch can be purchased for $10 per person. Tomorrow will be the last day of the Classics in the Courtyard.  It is amazing to see trees growing on the top court with grass where it is held.  

When it was over with I walked around and took a few pictures and thought you would like to see what it looks like now.  

I'm sure I have drunk water from this fountain many times while I played on the front playground in elementary grades.  If it could only talk.  

I remember going up and down these steps and sitting on them.   

To the playground on the left and top ground to the right to the elementary front door.  A tall fence has been torn down that was around the playground.  

Going under the tunnel.

The other side of the tunnel.

Opposite stairs going to elementary grades to the right and to the left stairs to high school.  Also, stairs to the top court.  

I wrote my name on the wall by my classmate, Myrtle Loviza Curro Alvarado.

Tunnel heading out.  To the right is the entrance to the auditorium and steps to the left to the top court where the Classics In The Courtyard was held.  

Getting ready to leave and have walked this many times in my 12 years at our school going to church or heading home from high school.

I took a picture of the front playground as it looks today.  We graduated almost 60 years ago!  So sad to know that all the Sister of Mercy and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart that taught us are no longer with us as well as some of our classmates who have gone to their heavenly reward from S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S.  I'm looking forward to our 60th Class Reunion in April 2019!  Hope to see you there!
