St. Pius X High Heritage Day Raises $4500 for CSJs


Students at St. Pius Catholic High School in Atlanta, Georgia raised $4,500 for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet as part of their annual Heritage Day, which honors the four religious orders that helped to build the foundation of St. Pius X.

Each year since the 2008-2008 school year, St. Pius X honors a specific order by sharing information with our students about the order's history and involvement with the founding of our school-the first Catholic, co-educational secondary school in the state of Georgia.

This year, the school celebrated the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet by asking students to give back to those who made a St. Pius X education a possibility.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet were one of four religious orders that opened the doors of the school in 1958 to 418 students. Since that time, they have grown to 1,075 students who come from over 15 metro-Atlanta counties, providing a first class Catholic education for our students.

 "Sir Isaac Newton once wrote, ‘If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.' The same is true of our St. Pius X school community," says St. Pius X Principal Steve Spellman.

"We have seen 52 years of growth and excellence, but none of it would have been possible without the humble and generous service of our founders. The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet were one of four orders that built our school from the ground up. Without the perseverance of these amazing women, St. Pius X would be a very different place. We are so thankful for their work and spirit."
