Dear Sacred Heart Families and Friends, Welcome to L’Esprit 2014—the 11th anniversary of L’Esprit de Sacré Coeur. On behalf of everyone who has worked tirelessly in planning the gala event tonight, thank you for celebrating the spirit that is this Sacred Heart community. This year, our school community is focusing on deepening our life in the Goals and Criteria through the lens of Goal IV: Schools of the Sacred Heart commit themselves to the building of community as a Christian value. While there is much to celebrate about Sacred Heart, it is truly our life as a community rooted in the Goals and Criteria that sets us apart in our mission of making the love of God visible in our world. The Academy and Hardey Prep are blessed with 700 students—over 400 families—in this, our 137th year in Chicago. Our community embraces a rich diversity of people living throughout the city and from across the globe. Our students are nourished by different faith traditions and family structures, but once on campus, they experience one community that we work continually to build. We work at building community because it enhances our life together, and because we know that it is the right way to educate our children. The community of Sacred Heart doesn’t end on Sheridan Road. It extends to all those with whom we share our mission. In celebrating the values of Goal IV, this year we honor Howard Area Community Center as our 2014 Goal Award recipient. As one of our neighbors in the Rogers Park community, Howard Area Community Center builds community in many ways by providing a food pantry, a jobs program, dental and health services and educational opportunities for all ages. Their work is a wonderful example of St. Madeleine Sophie’s commitment to making the love of God visible in the world. Building community in a neighborhood as diverse as Rogers Park requires dedication and hard work. Howard Area Community Center’s commitment to mission inspires all of us at Sacred Heart. Students at the Academy and Hardey Prep are well aware of the work of Howard Area Community Center since it is one of our community service partners. This past year, we sponsored over 170 families and over 350 children in our December outreach. Our students continue to build meaningful relationships through the Center in their weekly work there. I am delighted that our friends and neighbors at Howard Area are the recipient of this year’s Goal Award. On behalf of the entire community of Sacred Heart, congratulations! I extend a special welcome to all those who have helped with L’Esprit over these last 11 years, to the Religious of the Sacred Heart, to our past event Chairs, and to all of you who have made our annual gala such a success. Thank you for joining us this year, and thank you for your on-going support of the mission of Sacred Heart education. Now let’s celebrate L’Esprit 2014...the spirit of our community! Gratefully,
Nat Wilburn Head of Schools

Howard Area Community Center 2014 Recipient of the Sacred Heart Schools Goal Award A social service agency in Rogers Park, Howard Area Community Center has been chosen as the 11th annual Sacred Heart Schools Goal Award recipient. By providing a client-selected food program, a jobs program, dental and health services, early childhood and adult education opportunities, literacy classes and even an urban garden, Howard Area helps others to a brighter future. As its nomination states, “Howard Area Community Center welcomes each child, woman and man with dignity and respect and as a valued member of the community.” The Howard Area Community Center, by providing basic services to people of all ages marginalized by society, not only builds community for underserved constituencies, but also builds community among its many volunteers. Sacred Heart Schools values the partnership we have enjoyed with Howard Area for more than 30 years. We have seen first hand the good work that they do for their clients in a myriad of ways. Our students have benefited from their volunteer experiences in their Head Start program, their Family Center, and through their annual Christmas Drive, to name just a few. What comes across very clearly in the nomination received for Howard Area Commuity Center is the reciprocal nature of the partnership we have with them. It states, “The Howard Area Community Center staff and clients have taught the Sacred Heart community the realities of hunger, homelessness and poverty in urban life, and the joy of receiving the simplest of gifts at Christmas time.” Sacred Heart salutes the Howard Area Community Center’s 45 years of service to the Rogers Park community!
Dear Fellow Parents and Friends of Sacred Heart Schools, What a night! The mission of Sacred Heart Schools that is alive every day on Sheridan Road is alive tonight at the Hilton. There is no better way to celebrate Goal IV and the Sacred Heart family’s sense of community than L’Esprit de Sacré Coeur. The community that we build within our school creates the base from which we can positively affect others. The tremendous amount of effort and generosity that goes into creating L’Esprit and the Fall Gathering, as well as the other events throughout the year, exemplifies the strength of community within Sacred Heart. The Howard Area Community Center provides a terrific example to all of us of how to live Goal IV. They have been building community through serving those in need for 45 years and Sacred Heart has had the good fortune of being a partner with them for more than 30 years. We salute Howard Area and its mission. It is an honor to present to them the 2014 Sacred Heart Goal Award. This year’s chairs, Amy, Wendy, Jane, and Beth, have once again pushed this event to new heights. We are extremely grateful for their leadership and the tremendous amount of time, effort and creativity they have put into making this event another overwhelming success. Our heartfelt thanks goes also to the numerous parent volunteers, staff, and faculty who have committed so much of their time and energy to make L’Esprit possible. Finally, thank you to all who are attending tonight and giving so generously. The fact that so many of you contribute your time and resources throughout the year to support our great school is inspiring. This truly is an important night for Sacred Heart. Although the money raised at L’Esprit is critical to the financial health of the school, I believe that the strengthening of our community is the larger benefit. Lisa and I look forward to enjoying it with all of you.
Jeff Jozwiak Chairman, Board of Trustees
