Centennial Celebration

Dear RES community,

Happy New Year! The year 2022 marks Resurrection College Prep’s 100th year as an institution. Over the next eighteen months, we will celebrate our past, present and future. This momentous occasion will be full of celebration and reminiscing. Founded in 1922, the Sisters of the Resurrection began educating young women in an all-girl environment beginning to instill their motto of Charity and Truth. In 1926, the first Resurrection class graduated four young women, and now, nearly 18,000 young-women have graduated from Resurrection.

For the last six months, I have been working with the Advancement team and a committee of Resurrection supporters to begin planning the celebration. Through their guidance and feedback, I am pleased to unveil our 100 year logo and event updates.

The logo symbolizes Resurrections past and present. The banner represents the Sisters of the Resurrection and the cross represents the Christian Brothers of the Midwest.

We had hoped to kick-off our Centennial celebration on our 100th day of school, February 1, 2022, but due to COVID-19 we are postponing the event until Friday, April 1, 2022.

On behalf of the student committee, I invite all alumnae to attend the Centennial Pep Rally at 2:00 p.m. Our student committee will lead the in-school celebration and I hope you will join us.

If you haven’t had a chance to update your contact information recently, take a few minutes today. We have a list of “Lost Alumnae” linked to the right. If you have a friend on the list, please ask them to update their information.

On a personal note, I look forward to meeting you over the next eighteen months. This is only my eleventh month as President and I am honored to lead RES into the next one hundred years.

If you are interested in becoming involved in the celebration, please email Liz Brennan, Director of Institutional Advancement at ebrennan@reshs.org or 773.775.6616 X142.
