Sister Mary at the ParadelogoHomecoming 2008 was a resounding success. Current students, faculty and staff joined hundreds of alumni, parents and friends to celebrate on campus with a rally, varsity soccer games, chili feed, bonfire, parade, tailgate party and football team send-off. A capacity crowd of over 4,000 gathered for the first-ever home football game. Although the Saints lost to Crown College, their spirited effort made every Saint in the stands proud. 

At right, Sister Mary Rochefort '70 crowned the Monastery's parade float as "Sister Mary Touchdown."
