Former St. Augustine Principals Honored

by J. Rossetti-Ford

Over 125 people attended a reception for the former Principals of St. Augustine School, Sister Evelyn O'Connor and Joan Crowley, on Sunday, September 20, at Marc Antony's, located in Hartford's South End at 1000 Wethersfield Avenue. Speakers included Father Nicholas Cesaro, pastor of St. Augustine Church, Sally Collins from the St. Augustine Alumni Association and Lisa Toce parent representative.

Toce presented the honorees with plagues for their many years of service on behalf of the parent group.

Among the guests were Robert and Patricia Sullivan, John and Marion Kehoe, Eleanor Burns, Thomas and Bonnie Mooney, Joseph and Maureen Hallisey, Raymond and Harriet McGough, Larry Donahue, Joseph and Colette Lupo and Mary and Minnie Maradie.

"On behalf of the St. Augustine School family, the school board, the alumni, the past and present parents, the faculty and students, I would like to say `Thank You' to two outstanding ladies, Sister Evelyn O'Connor and Joan Crowley." said Event Coordinator Kathleen Collins.

The recent Alumni newsletter described the two as the "glue" that held St. Augustine's together for so many years. A recent flyer to past parents referred to them as "the mainstay" of the 70-year-old school.
"However, we say it, all of us here today know that Sr. Evelyn and Joan Crowley have been the bonding force behind St. Augustine's for over 25 years - and for this we will be forever grateful," said Collins.
