1818 – 2018
Together, we will continue to transform the world.
The Bicentennial of Saint Philippine Duchesne’s historic arrival provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the Sacred Heart mission and vision, the Society’s ongoing legacy at Maryville, and the dedicated commitment of our alumnae.
An entire year of activities and remembrances will honor the Sacred Heart’s remarkable history of “crossing frontiers.” Maryville University is honored to be an integral part of the celebrations:
- Maryville has supported the publication of 200 Years: A Legacy of Love and Learning, a history of the first Sacred Heart foundation in America, researched and written by Maryville University alumna Jane Shannon Cannon, Class of 1957.
- Various Bicentennial events and celebrations will be sponsored by Maryville, including lectures on the history and legacy of the Sacred Heart at Maryville.
