On Thursday, November 21, the junior class, their families, and OLSH administration, faculty, and staff gathered in the OLSH Chapel for the Ring Day Celebration. One of OLSH’s most treasured traditions, Ring Day serves as a celebration of class unity and symbolizes the transition of the junior class to upperclassmen in the school. Ring Day is always celebrated on, or as close as possible to, November 21 to coincide with the founding day of the Felician Sisters. On November 21, 1855, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska solemnly consecrated herself to God before an image of Our Lady of Częstochowa. This day is considered to be the founding date of the Felician Sisters.
The Ring Day celebration also recognizes Legacy Families – families with a current student at OLSH and one or both parents being alumni of the school. The alumni have the opportunity to have their OLSH rings blessed and participate in presenting their children’s rings. This year Lauren Boggs '21 and her mother Tammy (Brill) Boggs '90, Mara Fryer '21 and her mother Christine (Weber) Fryer '91, Maddie Fiedler '21 and her father Don Fiedler '84, Christopher Pendel '21 and his father David Pendel '87, and Ella Wrabley and her parents Marie (Dixon) Wrabley '95 and Colin Wrabley '92 were celebrated.
After Mass, the juniors and their guests gathered at the Pittsburgh Airport Marriott to enjoy dinner and fellowship with each other.
