Convocation: Culture Fest

Academy of Holy Angels (AHA) comes together as a student body, faculty, and staff in a weekly Convocation assembly. Convocations provide a time and space for AHA to build community, learn from each other, pray together, celebrate good news, and hear from new and relevant speakers.

The Convocation on Thursday, May 12 featured the kick off to Culture Fest, a two-day celebration presented by AHA's Diversity Club. The main intention of Culture Fest was to bring awareness to the many native cultures that makeup AHA's student population.

Paul Kariuki (Kenya), Naomi Hayft (Guatemala), Therese Phan (VIetnam), and Zaira Flores (El Salvador) presented on the food, clothing, and religious traditions of their native cultures.

The following Friday, the group will shared some native foods with the community during lunch and also encouraged community members to dress in native clothing.

in addition to Culture Fest, members of the Diversity Club will be leading Wednesday Service Immersions, a weekly activity in which AHA students mentor and speak about their high school experience to students at Risen Christ Catholic Grade School.
