These two Freshmen will guide us through our
four years of high school life in this Book of Many
Faces. They were chosen by their classes as most
representative of the joyous years at Annunciation
Let us follow them while they point out the small
and great happenings of our school lives. Come
with us as we retrace our steps down memory lane,
with Jo Ann Ciaccio and Pat Jones.
Pat and Jo Ann, meet the principal of Annunciation High School, Sr. M
Aloysia, M.H.S. Having been principal for three years, Sr. Aloysia is ad-
mired and loved by all students. We are sure that you will find her counsel
and guidance a great aid in your school life just as your fellow students have
found the answer to so many problems through Sr. Aloysia.
As we stroll down memory lane and recall the joyful days of our school life, our
thoughts turn to the handful of persons who have made these such pleasant and memora-
It is with deepest sincerity and heartfelt gratitude that we, the Graduates of '56,
lovingly call to mind our faculty, whose undying interest in the spiritual and temporal
welfare of their charges will long be remembered and appreciated.

The Catholic Student's Mission Crusade is
an organization with the program of pro-
moting apostolic spirit among Catholic
young people of the United States, especially
those who are students. The Crusade pro-

Sanctification of self and others
is the main goal of the Sodality.
Sodalists reach this goal by constant
recollection of their motto: "To
Jesus Through Mary." The Sodality,
with the aid of the Blessed Virgin,
tries to plant into the minds and
hearts of the students that nothing
is more important than the saving
of one's own soul. Before anything
else, Sodalists are taught the virtues
of purity and charity.
The Sodality has many activities,
such as conventions and regular
meetings, which are aids in helping
the members Work together for a

Above, Joy Perret and Frank Hyer, leading characters in the play, rehearse a scene from the
The play, a comedy in three acts and directed by Sr. Lucretia and Mrs. E. Pike, concerns a
forty -year old widow who has lost her money in stocks and bonds. In order to keep her son in
college and insure financial security for both of them, she plans to marry a widower, whom
she thinks is in his thirties and very wealthyg but who, in reality, is also in his forties and
minus his estate. He also plans to marry for financial security for him and his seventeen-year
The meeting of the two families proves very hilarious as each discovers the truth about the
other after having dressed up the children as twelve-year olds to disguise their age. The play,
however, has a happy ending as the two marry despite previous falsehoods.

Just off the lobby of the hotel in which the play is set, there is a gift shop, capably o

fun loving, and not at all deserving of the events that fall upon their shapely shoulders. . .because some-
one is plotting a murder and the scene of this catastrophe is to be their own little gift shop.
Grant Terry, a young newspaper reporter from New York, has discovered the plot and travels to
this town to warn the damsels. When he reveals the impending danger, the entire cast gets the idea
that they individually are to be the victims and begin repenting of their past ills which proves hilarious.

Filled with tension and excitement, the Seniors

The Director was Father LT. Walsh of Spring-
hill College, Alabama.
The retreat afforded many spiritual benefits
which will aid Seniors in their future lives.

The Class of 1956 would like to dedicate its Annual to the devoted Sisters of the
Most Holy Sacrament who spend themselves untiringly in the education of youth, but
most particularly to Reverend Mother Laura, Superior General of the Congregation.
1956 marks the Golden Anniversary of Reverend Mother Laura as a member of the
Sisters of the Most Holy Sacrament. Fifty years of service to God, the Catholic Church
and to our country through the noble profession of the education of young people.
The importance of a Catholic education cannot be sufficiently emphasized. His
Holiness Pope Pius XI in his encyclical letter the CHRISTIAN EDUCATION OF YOUTH
stated: "It is therefore as important to make no mistake in education, as it is to make
no mistake in the pursuit of the last end, with which the whole work of education is
intimately and necessarily connected. In fact, since education consists essentially in
preparing man for what he must be and for what he must do here below, in order to at-
tain the sublime end in order for which he was created, it is clear that there can be no
true education which is not wholly directed to man's last end, and that in the present
order of Providence, since God has revealed Himself to us in the Person of His Only Be-
gotten Son, who alone is the way, the truth and the life, there can be no ideally per-
fect education which is not Christian education."
Catholic leadership is necessary. Students in our Catholic schools are prepared
mentally, socially, physically and spiritually to assume positions of responsibility in
every profession. "Christian education, " states Pope Pius XI, "takes in the whole ag-
gregate of human life, physical and spiritual, intellectual and moral, individual, do-
mestic and social, not with a view of reducing it in any way, but in order to elevate,
regulate and perfect it, in accordance with the example and teaching of Christ."
Therefore, we the Class of 1956, hereby dedicate the Annunciette to Reverend
Mother Laura and the Sisters of the Most Holy Sacrament.

As the gates close at the end of the school year, so do we conclude our stroll down
memory lane with Pat and Io Ann. We, the Seniors of 1956, have retraced our steps
through four years of high school with these two freshmen who are just beginning that
most eventful journey.
May we Wish the best of luck and happiness to those who follow us as we bid farewell
to our Alma Mater, Annunciation High School.
