Father Joseph Fessler,
Mother Generose Cahill…
A bright Spring day –
A trail that circles Silver Lake –
The vision begins.
The plans are made –
A plot is measured
And soil is turned.
Doors open, welcome-wide
Youth eager to learn.
The young teacher Teresa’ vision
Taking shape –
The young educator Mary Gertrude
Shapes further dream.
Soon young women fill the college halls…
Our heritage – Holy Family College
Our legacy to keep the vision,
The dream become reality:
Ours it is to re-invigorate this our heritage-
Ours to be the collaborators of Mothers
Gabriel and Generose,
To bestow on this – our own college, a vital, vibrant future,
Pledging our prayers, our support,
To work begun, to tasks ahead.
Sister Martin Flavin
