Thanks to the support and encouragement I received at Alverno, I decided to step outside my comfort zone and pursue an advanced art class. Then, in sophomore year, I decided to become a part of the Hair and Makeup crew for the plays and musicals. Thanks to Alverno, I was able to discover my creative side.

This morning we celebrated our 60th Anniversary with a Social Justice Liturgy. Our community was surrounded by beauty as we shared in song and Eucharist. This special mass took place on the villa terrace and celebrated our 60 year journey. Alumnae were invited to join us. We would like to thank Sue Behrens ‘78 and Georgina Alvarez ‘00 (accompanied by her 2 year old son!) for being a part of our offertory procession. Our Alumnae teachers and staff also took part! We also heard from Raina Martinez ‘88 who shared her journey as the Director of Development for @foothillunitycenter! It was an inspiring and beautiful morning! #alvernoheights

Our wonderful Alverno Singers shared their voices at The Hart Park House in Sierra Madre this afternoon. The Hart House is a community center for senior citizens of all ages! Our singers, joined by Ms. Witherington, Ms. Mone and Ms. Bertollini, sang a variety of Christmas carols to their senior fans! It was a beautiful day and another special moment this Holiday season! #alvernoserves #alvernochristmas

And the winner of the class tree decorating contest is...(drum rolling please)...the Seniors! Our Alverno Christmas Day ended in with a fun afternoon of tacky Christmas tree decorating, cookie decorating, ugly sweater contest and hot cocoa! Each state had to decorate their tree to represent Alverno, the spirit of their class and of course, the spirit of Christmas! All the classes did an amazing job putting everything together. The Freshman class created a Birthday themed tree, because we are celebrating our 60th birthday! The Sophomores had a Big Bird tree dedicated to reminiscing about our childhoods as we approach the end of a decade. The Grinch came to life as the Junior tree embodied this Christmas story! Lastly, the Seniors took the trophy with their tree! With photos of everyone in their class, ornaments that represented their state color, special senior items and a graduation cap atop the tree to replace the typical star - it truly embodied Alverno & Christmas! It was a festive Christmas celebration! #AlvernoChristmas

Today our Campus Ministry students loaded up the van with gifts for the Los Angeles Archdiocese Adopt a Family service project! All of our students, Faculty & Staff came together to provide items for two amazing families! This project is truly a reminder of what Christmas is all about, giving. Donating these gifts was really a gift to our Alverno community, reminding us to be appreciative for all we have and willing to share it with others. Merry Christmas!
