Celebrating Mother Marie Rose

Marie Rose
by Abby Hasselbrink '20

She came with a vision
A place for young women
Justice, faith, art,
And education.

From Canada they came
Life would never be the same
For the Bay Area
And the Sisters of the Holy Names.
Legacies they would create
Across the United States
Imparting social justice values
With academics and faith.
Although Marie Rose has passed
Her mission was not left in the past
We live her dream every day
Whether in class or at Mass.
Holy Names Forever
Changed us for the better
We will carry Noblesse Oblige
In all our lives’ endeavors.
