Bells of joy rang throughout the St. Ignatius of Loyola Elementary School church last Saturday as parishioners, Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose, teachers, staff, alumni and students gathered at Mass to begin a year of celebration.
This yearlong celebration will culminate on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022, marking the 100th anniversary of the opening day of classes.
“This ‘jewel of a school’ has been one of the constants in the Highland Park community,” a statement from the school said. “We are honored and excited to plan this monumental day in the school’s history. Please mark your calendars and come help us celebrate all those who have helped contribute to the success of St. Ignatius of Loyola Elementary School.”
