The culmination of two years of study came at the Sacred Heart Cathedral School May 10 Sacred Space Assembly. Our eighth-grade hosts interviewed representatives from each grade, and the whole school community got to watch nine short videos on the driving questions each grade tackled in their project-based learning assignments.
While we saw how much students learned about measurement, engineering, materials, and manpower in our 2016 assembly, this year’s assembly centered on the theme of sacred space as plans for the rose window, altar, saint statues, and baptismal font come to fruition.
This project was fun, challenging work that helped our students grow in the knowledge of their faith and in their understanding of the Cathedral that is rising before the eyes of those who will worship there. As the only Catholic school in this country that is connected to a new Cathedral, we have had a unique and transformational spiritual and academic journey.
