Children of Mary


We would like to extend the invitation for you to join us this year for Children of Mary at Duchesne Academy.  Children of Mary is a prayerful sodality group has been a part of Sacred Heart tradition for over 200 years. Duchesne hosts our meetings and Mass on the first Friday of each month, starting in October and continuing through May 2019.

Alum status is not necessary for membership or in order to receive the Children of Mary medal. Any alumnae, past parents, or friends of Duchesne are welcome! To receive a medal, your attendance at six meetings is required, and they need not be consecutive.

Annual dues are $30.00 for the year and should be paid by October 12th to Ann Tjaden for your name to be included in the directory. Member dues pay for the Morning of Reflection meeting in April, and a gift is always made to the school’s scholarship fund as well. We wish to express gratitude to our inactive members who continue to show interest and support the sodality through their continued membership.

Our meetings are held in the Performing Arts Center Lobby at Duchesne on the first floor of the south entrance; you may park in the student parking lot. Meetings begin with coffee and a presentation at 9:00 am and conclude by noon. If Duchesne is canceled due to bad weather on the day of our meeting, we will not meet. Please watch for school closings.
