Resurrection College Prep HS Celebrates First Opening School Liturgy as a Lasallian Institution

Students, faculty, and staff gathered on August 26 to celebrate Resurrection College Prep High School’s first school liturgy as a Lasallian Institution. In attendance were special guests from the congregations of the Sisters of the Resurrection and the Christian Brothers, including new Visitor and Auxiliary Visitor, Brothers Michael Fehrenbach and Chris Englert. Following the liturgy, President Sr. Donna Marie Wolowicki, C.R. and Principal Dr. Piwowarski offered a blessing and commissioning of all staff and faculty.

Resurrection College Prep High School for Girls is the first all-girls high school in the Lasallian network. After 97 years, the sisters prayerfully discerned that it was time to transfer ownership and sponsorship to the Christian Brothers and the Lasallian charism.  Br. Chris Englert, commented “The school with its rich history broadens the Lasallian outreach in new directions.”
