Duchesne High School hosts 1,500+ for Reenactment

On Friday, September 7, 2018, over 1,500 people from St. Louis area schools and Sacred Heart affiliations, near and far, gathered at Duchesne High School in St. Charles, Missouri, to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Saint Rose Philippine's arrival in St. Charles.

The morning featured period demonstrations performed by students from Academy of the Sacred Heart, information and a display from a local citizen Potawatomi, and speeches from several Missouri and St. Charles dignitaries. The morning culminated with a short play, performed by Duchesne High School and Academy of the Sacred Heart students, reenacting Philippine's journey and arrival in St. Charles.
