Principal’s Message

March 19, 2018
Dear St. Hugh community,

Sacrificing in charity and kindness for the good of others can happen in small ways each day. This is especially true in families where each member must sometimes give up something he or she wants for the good of the household. Engage in family discussion about sacrifice as a part of family life. No matter what the sacrifices, strive for making them with a cheerful and generous attitude.

May God bless you today, tomorrow and always.
