A Doggie Day at OLSH

On Tuesday, May 20th OLSH celebrated the feast day of St. Felix of Cantalice by hosting a “Doggie Day” for students and faculty in the AAC. 

In keeping with the Felician tradition, OLSH planned the Doggie Day around the feast day of St. Felix of Cantalice to celebrate his legacy of building community and sharing joy with children. 

The foundress of the Felician Sisters, Blessed Mary Angela, was inspired by St. Felix’s dedication to service, prayer, and community and looked to him as the namesake and patron of the Felician order. St. Felix was known for his dedication to his community of Rome by collecting donations for the poor and frequently playing with children in the streets.    

Students had the opportunity to pet a puppy during their lunch periods at the AAC and soon the whole OLSH community got involved with Doggie Day.

Parents and teachers brought their dogs to participate. Coach Mac shared his mother’s two Shelties as well as his own dog “Rocky.” Mr. Plocinik brought his two Basset Hounds, “Mabel” and “Louise,” as well. Eight dogs enjoyed an afternoon of petting from about 300 students throughout the lunch periods. 

Students, faculty, and dogs alike all enjoyed the event as a way to celebrate community and take a break from this busy time of the school year. OLSH is hoping to make Doggie Day an annual event to celebrate man’s best friend and the legacy of the Felician tradition.
