Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart is devastated by the tragic killing of George Floyd. The heartbreaking, violent actions that led to his death rock our core belief that we are all created equally in God's image.But we know that education is power.
As we face these uncertain times together, we want you and all our Jo family to be safe and healthy. For the past 14 Annual Spring Luncheons, we've come together as friends and family to not only empower Chicago's young women but to strengthen our bonds as a community. The funds we raise through the Spring Luncheon are critical to keeping our school open and innovating to meet the digital learning needs and support of our students. In this spirit of innovation we've taken a page out of our own book and worked with our event committee to quickly but thoughtfully re-envision this year's Spring Luncheon as the Josephinum Spring Storybook virtual event.
