We realize, however, that our citizen- ship is also in another world: that we have been created by God, and that we are destined for life with God in eter- nity.'

Since they have a special devotion to Mary, the Mother of God, this year was for them and their students a year of particular rejoicing. On November l, 1950, the dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin was proclaimed. Mary's 'anticipated resurrec- tion' makes it clear that Nlary now enjoys a happi- ness which we all hope to attain. MOTHER MARY ALICIA 'K Wefemn...

The sodalists whose aim is personal holiness, are responsible for many school projects. Mite boxes, TB seals, and clo- thing drives are all under the sponsorship of the sodalists. 11?
