Keep Eric's Promise Eric Henry Poster

Eric Henry heard the cry of the poor and promised to be more giving. We invite you to help fulfill Eric’s promise through generous donations to St. Vincent De Paul during the Lenten season.  On Ash Wednesday in 2002, Marian High School Senior Eric Henry made a promise to “try to be more giving.”  So that evening, he put together several bags to donate to the Saint Vincent De Paul Society. Before he had the opportunity to deliver his gifts, however, Eric died in an automobile accident.  Thanks to many of his friends and classmates, however, Eric’s Promise lives on in the entire South Bend-Mishawaka community.  During Lent 2017, please take the time to declutter your space and donate the items at Marian in memory of Eric Henry.

College Tour Announced! College Tour Image from EF website

Marian's School Counseling Department is excited to announce a second college tour, this time traveling from the historic city of Philadelphia to Washington, D.C. This is a student ONLY tour, which gives students an opportunity to get independently engaged in the college admissions process. In June 2017, the participants will have an opportunity to visit many different archetypes of schools and figure out the “right fit,” learn the college admissions language, and understand the admissions process.  It doesn’t replace the family college tour experience – rather supplements it and gives students an opportunity to see more schools – and also tour these exciting cities.  Click here to go to the Explore America website and find out more!  See Mrs. Kathy Cook in the School Counseling Department if you have questions.

Joy of Teaching Awardees Joy of Teaching

Mr. Mark Kirzeder presented the “Bishop D’Arcy Joy of Teaching” Grant to Mrs. Cheryl Madison and Ms. Micah Niespodizany of the English Department.  This award was created from Marian's Teacher Endowment to reward the school's dedicated teachers.  This year the grant will enable these two English teachers to take an educational tour to Athens, Delphi, and Mesopotamos, Greece to explore ancient mythology, art, and architecture. This year’s winners wrote: “Assuredly, we would have a fruitful experience should our application be chosen.  It would be impossible, given our teaching style, not to spread that joy of learning to our students. The spirit of the Joy Teaching Grant would thus be fully realized for hundreds of Marian students for many years to come!"
